In the Barn

Okay, so the whole ‘shepherdess’ thing is just a ruse.   If you find me in the barn, odds are I’m spending some quality time with the Sawzall.  That truck won’t modify itself afterall!

Oh yeah, and I made that satin skirt.

Stop by the Willow Homestead if you want to read about it.

Shepherdess, retro-housewife, mother, seamstress... but labels can be deceiving. I also play the sax, butcher chickens and sing in the church choir. I raise sheep and bale hay. I sew from Grandma's patterns and drive a 1950 Ford Shoebox. Life at the Willow Homestead is retro right down to the 1947 Frigidaire!

This makes you my hero! Hand made and power tools…two of my favorite things on the planet!!! I have a similar pic of me with a circ saw in vintage 50′s polka dots covered in sawdust…but a gold circle skirt…you look amazing!
