Vendor Profile

As we count down our days until The Yuletide Celebration Holiday Market in the Barn, we begin our vendor profiles with a personal favorite of mine - a mother couldn't be prouder of her daughter!

Nice Girls Jewelry Company

This holiday season, Nice Girls Jewelry Co. will be bringing you a new line of vibrant polymer clay jewelry along with our hand crafted lampwork jewelry, and new mixed media hand-dyed wool roving felted pieces. Gretchen and Benni juggle day jobs and motherhood, but sneak creative moments to design their ever increasing line of bangles, baubles, and beads which they debut twice a year at select shows around the Midwest.

See them along with our other fine vendors . . .

Indian Summer

So still and quiet - except for the eerie dancing shadows of the nearby towering hardwoods
that cast late day images to the west.
It is a peaceful time, private somehow.

The pots on the window ledge in our Red Barn bloom bright red
as they stand watch over our
beloved Farmhouse at Sycamore Farm.

The patio pots bloom on - surely the last of this Indian Summer!

This is a good time . . . to reflect, to be thankful, and to look to the future.
Soon we will be busy with plans and preparations for our

3rd Annual Yuletide Celebration
Holiday Market in the Barn.

We have old friends and new . . . and several surprises in store!
It is a gift - this Market - from us to you!
This year, more than ever, we look forward to welcoming you.
It is our best time of the year!

Quiet November

Autumn has given us one last taste of sun and warmth!
Outside my window, the willow tree sways ever gently in a warm breeze.

It is quiet on the Farm . . . a lone traveler has checked in for the night.

Though my battery is threatening to give out, I dashed out
to the garden for some last sunny pictures.

White radishes and turnips still lay beneath the cool soil.
Sage and rosemary continue to flourish.
