As I walked outside this foggy morning to gather wood for our furnace… I was distracted by the beautiful heavy fog saturating our orchard trees. I quickly ran back in the house and asked the kids who wanted to run outside and take some pictures with Mama… the youngest raised her hand and jumped up and down. I ran to her closet… and had a hard time finding something “Winter-ish” that would work with the look I wanted to go for. So, I ran over to my fabric shelf and found something better. I used a 1/2 yard piece of white fur and told her to wrap it around her like a blanket (total cost: 6 dollars) and then grabbed a sprig of pip berries (.99 on clearance at Michaels craft store) and wrapped and bent them into a little halo. She looked like a perfect little Winter fairy. I grabbed my 7D and threw her on my back to walk through our back fields. Set her down in the damp grass under our crab apple tree for backdrop with a splash of red, and this is what I got from that beautiful morning
Welcome to The Sleeping Willow
Here you will find pieces of my life and every day happenings. I am a mother of two beautiful girls and an incredibly cute bonus son. I am a wife to my best friend. I am a seamstress, a knitter, a home decorator, a baker, and a follower of Jesus Christ. A day doesn't pass here on the farm that I do not thank God for the beauty in these Oregon hills. I am a lover to painted sunsets, frothy lattes, clothing design, photography, preserving childhood, flea market finds, glowing sunrises, the ocean & sandy feet, crisp morning air, tall wheat fields, thrift shopping, and the smell of wood heat in the winter. I collect quilts and antique farm finds for my country home and I love to can jams and fruit butters. I am incredibly blessed to be able to stay home with my children each and every day and create items for newborn and child photographers in the middle of our daily chaos. You can visit my shop here :) Thank you for visiting!
