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.

I've been meaning to blog about my little purchase from Lara Harris through her Etsy store at http://www.studiolara316.etsy.com/

Lara is donating the money she makes from her paintings to a family member for medical treatment. 

Lara was really so easy and wonderful to work with - she tweaked the colors of this little nest painting to include some of the green that is in the rest of the room. 


I placed it in our upstairs bathroom, on top of an old medicine cabinet.  For some reason I've established a bird motif in this room so this adorable nest fit perfectly, and it was so nice to know that the purchase was helping someone in need.

You can see the painting on top of the medicine cabinet on the left.
 
Some good news, my dad is back at home and doing well.  He's on 11 meds each morning and will be seeing his cardiologist more often now.  We're so lucky to have my brother and his wife living with dad. 
 
Here's another picture of Miss Olive making herself comfortable in our daughter's bed.
