Processing Wool Into Yarn {A Little Dream Come True!}


 Ever since getting our Babydoll sheep last spring, I dreamed of having their wool turned into yarn and made into knit hats for our three boys. (I had no idea about the process of turning wool into yarn, but figured there had to be a way!)

I was blessed to find a special person, Kim, who was up for the challenge. And a challenge it was, as we had only very short lambswool from our sheep's first shear. (Many mills require a minimum length of 3" - ours was nowhere near that!) 

As if that weren't enough, it was November and I was trying to get the yarn in time to have hats made for our sons by Christmas. (Most mills require 6 to 12 months for processing!) But with Kim's help, our sons opened up their wool knit hats on Christmas Eve, made from their own sheep's wool! 


Today, I'm excited to share what I learned about the steps it takes to process wool into yarn. Kim was kind enough to send me pictures as she went, explaining the steps she took. So let's get started!

5 Tips For A Simple Spring Farmhouse Vignette...


Hi Friends ~ Have you caught spring fever? Or are you suffering from cabin fever?!

Here in the Pacific Northwest we've had several days of gorgeous sunshine and now... snowflakes are lightly falling again. Since going to Hawaii is not an option (Did I mention we're having our whole septic system repaired as I write? Ah, the joys of country living...), I decided to freshen up just a small area in our home for spring.


If you (and/or your budget) is not ready to flip your whole house from winter to spring, consider these five easy tips for a farmhouse-inspired spring vignette:

Sundays at Home {Link Party}




Hello and thank you for joining us today! 

For those of you who link up your blog posts, we love seeing what you're up to! And for those of you who come to find fresh ideas and inspiration, we hope you find something that brings you joy...

To kick off this week's party, we thought we'd share a few quotes from well-known designers. See if you agree with their approach to decorating:

"Every room needs a touch of black, just as it needs at least one antique piece." - Jan Showers

"If you love something, it will work." - Bunny Williams

"A room should never allow the eye to settle in one place. It should smile at you and create fantasy." - Juan Montoya

Vintage European Farmhouse Finds...


Hi Friends ~ The snow continues to fall as I write this post. We have lived in the Seattle area for over 18 years and have never seen anything like this! The snow is so deep that it's a workout just to walk out to the chicken coop. Hats off to you who live in the midwest and endure heavy snow throughout the winter! 

We now have about 16 - 18" of snow and it is incredibly beautiful. However, in our area, we don't have heavy snow equipment, so life as we know it comes to a grinding halt. My mom has said it's almost like a forced Sabbath rest for us all, and it does feel that way. Schools have been closed for several days as we have gotten wave after wave of snow storms. Even many restaurants and shops close. People hunker down and some who don't, we wish they would. (Most drivers here are not used to driving in these conditions!)

The highlights for us have been a late night family snow walk around our property with the dogs, taking in the beauty and fun of snow, and meeting up with my sister so that the cousins could sled together.


(Affiliate links included below.)

I thought I'd take this snow day to share with you some recent vintage farmhouse finds, including this zinc trough from Europe. I'll be taking many of these items (and more!) into our shop space inside of M&M Antiques in Monroe, Washington just as soon as the roads are cleared and the store is re-opened! In case you're not a Seattle local but still looking for a zinc trough, you can find them here.
