Former farm girl now living in a small town. I am raising ducks, hens and bunnies, herbs and veggies on a tiny city lot. Dyeing wool yarns and cotton fabrics in the back garden is a favorite thing on a sunny day.

"To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to the stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear on cheerfully, do all bravely, awaiting occasions, worry never; in a word to, like the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common."--William Henry Channing
"He who works with his hands is a laborer, he who works with his hands and head is a craftsman, he who works with his hands, head and heart is an artist." ~ St. Francis of Assisi
“I am beginning to learn that it is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.”
