~fern valley farm~

hello there!

I hope you're all having a great

I think we've finally gotten over
the rainy days here!

It's been just beautiful for almost a week now....
too good to be true ~ but we are sooooooo
loving it!

I wanted to share with you a wonderful blog
I recently discovered.......

Elissa lives with her husband and
2 kids on a beautiful island
in Maine!

Yep, I said island......lives on an island....
heaven on earth I would say....

she often posts stunning pictures of her
surroundings.....beautiful fields, beaches,

I love visiting her site ~ it's like a breath
of fresh air....

Elissa is quite talented

she whipped up these laundry baskets
after seeing
from Home and Harmony

and I'm fairly certain she is an organizational

she posted an awesome house cleaning
schedule that I really love......
{ok...NO...I haven't actually tried it but know I'll love it
when I do.....hee hee ;) }

she loves thrifting, and often posts her
awesome this bottle rack....

she sews, decorates and creates....
.....isn't this pillowcase so sweet?

I think there is nothing this girl
can't do!!

so head on over there friends....
I am certain you will love your visit!

I WILL go visit her! And aren't you just a doll to share her blog with us??? I actually think that where YOU live is heaven on earth, but living on an island might be a close second : ) There is one thing that MAINE and where I live share and that YOU don't have {lucky duck}: MOSQUITOES!

I love that garden. Especially the stone rabbit :)

I'm missing the NW summer right now. We lived in Battle Ground, WA until May and we both grew up in LaCenter. I'm enjoying your blog. My new blog is all about designing my "box" in Alaska - I love your wording on that, it's so true. :)
