The first was March 2014 and, I'm happy to report, Mother Nature smiled on this year's gathering, gracing us with lovely fall weather this time around. Of course, She smiled on us last year as well and threw in a snow day for good measure!
The house, built in the 1700's, is a charmingly quirky farmhouse that reflects Rachel's, the owner, love for the property inside and out.
An artist herself, she has the most wonderful flair
for creating unexpected moments of beauty.
We wandered the yard, marveling at its fall coat and comparing it to our memories of a snow blanketed yard.
There were new treasures to discover
and vignettes to be amazed by.
Lotta's and Kelly's bundles
There was also a bit of work to be done
Christine's eco printed paper
but mostly there was fun to be had. The neighbors have probably complained to Rachel by now about those raucous women who sat out by the fire each night, eating and drinking while telling stories and laughing far too loudly...or not.
It was a delightful gathering of friends and I can't wait until next time!
