Welcome!

Welcome to the Frog Hollow Farm blog! I've been blogging since January 2010 and have switched from Blogger to Word Press, but I'm back to Blogger because, for me, it's easier to use. My husband and I live on a little farm in Northwest New Jersey. We have some chickens and a very large vegetable garden with asparagus and raspberries, and rows and rows of sunflowers, snapdragons and zinnias. Traveling, entertaining, gardening, spending time with family, studying Italian, blogging and reading keep us busy and happy. With all of this going on, moving towards a simpler life seems almost impossible but it's definitely a daily goal.

Mini-Metamorphosis

We've been trying to get our basement offices back up and running since we had some water damage about a year ago.  Since I've been retired I've been working out of the kitchen temporarily, specifically from a 6ft square portion of the kitchen and kitchen table - I'm starting to feel a bit claustrophobic and have decided to set up a secondary temporary office space in our unfinished butler's pantry right off of the kitchen.  So, that's what I'm showing off today for Metamorphosis Monday.

Before...


After...



Yes, that's a poinsettia behind the laptop screen - she just won't quit, I guess this window and space is just right for her!  Thanks for stopping by Frog Hollow Farm!  Ciao, bella!

  1. I love the brick floors. Your temporary office is great and how wonderful to have a window to look out of! Looks like that poinsettia loves that window too.
