I try to have a craft day every sunday with my 12 year old daughter. I plan the week before what kind of things we can do together. I will be sharing some of those projects with you as we get ready for the Fall Barn Sale. I really look forward to the one on one time that we have together and I hope that she gains an appreciation of making things with her hands that I have always had.
In the past we have made beautiful hangtags, stamped pencils, decoupaged clipboards, iron on bags, stamped jewelry and many other things.
A couple weeks ago we dyed ribbon.
Here are some pictures of our before and after ribbon that we make together.
We started as sisters from Ohio who got "bit" by the antiquing bug thanks to our parents. Then, when we bought a farm in rural Ohio, the whole family got involved.
French Hen Farm is the big, red barn surrounded by perennial and vegetable gardens, an old willow tree, and 100 acres of farmed land. We have semi-annual barn sales featuring everything from antiques, homemade baked goods, recycled, repurposed vintage jewelry, fresh produce, flowers,herbs and pumpkins...the list goes on and on!
This blog is about the many things that inspire us here on the farm. From everyday life to the events that we have here on the farm. We would love to see you at our next sale!
