Living Graciously, Artfully, Frugally.

Consciously taking notice of the gifts each day places in our path.

Art Studio Afternoon

My neglected art studio.

I know it misses me.
abundant supplies sitting unused,
waiting to be transformed.

sweet time, 
is what is needed.
Not today I'm afraid.
Too many other obligations.

I know my dear little space will be waiting for me when I have a free moment.
Until then, a quick visit will have to do.

Oh but I do miss it.

Yours in dreaming, P.

A Dog's Life

 The phrase to lead a dog's (or cat's?) life is always seen as a negative.
Not here at Frippery Farmhouse.
Just a few examples...
(From just a few of the 8 dogs and cats who live here...
no lie...)

Drink from the same bowl as the dogs?
I don't think so.

Shadow wants only the freshest water.
Not a drop of dog drool in sight.

Let's not forget nap time. 

What do you mean this furniture is meant for humans?

You don't really expect us to sleep on that comfy floor cushion do you?

Sorry mom, please let us in.
We will try the dog bed one more time.
Although we really prefer a nice warm lap.

How's the weekend at your house?

Yours in the love of furry friends, P.

No Posts, No Excuses, No Regrets

 Hey there friends.
Time is not being wasted here at Frippery Farmhouse.
Back to work full time for a while and in between I have been





and slowly but surely making progress on the bedroom.

Lot's to do before I share it but why, oh why, is this the first time in almost 20 years 
that this room finally feels like a sanctuary?

We will be working on the wall behind the bed today...
unless I get too tempted to take a nap.
I can see a finished room in the not so distant future.
It makes me happy!

What is making you smile this week?

Yours in getting it done, P.
