In an interesting and rather sudden turn of events, the adjoining property was up for sale. I'm delighted to announce that we will be moving our home and studio to a beautiful three acre property of woods and fields with a beautiful house and barn in Franklin County MO near the end of August!
|Our new little home amongst the oaks, and the barn across the driveway...can't wait to move in!|
|Just a few of the oaks in front.|
There is even an amazing looking large coppice oak in the back near the house, it was once one tree, but had been cut low to the ground and is now four giant trunks growing out of one root system, it's truly magical! I'll get some photos of it next time we go out there.
There is also a large really nice barn that is now the home of four beautiful horses, once the woman that selling it has moved, the corral will be a great place to grow a gigantic vegetable garden. Eventually perhaps we'll have horses of our own. A finished room will be built in a corner of the barn so that Dan can use it as a production area of our studio, all the big heat presses, computer, dye sublimation printer, and even a packaging station will now be separate from our living space, but right across the driveway, and we will have so much more room to work! Right now, all that equipment is crammed into a spare bedroom, so this will be a big boon to our business. We will do our best to only close the Etsy shop for the briefest time possible close to the move, it's our intention to set up temporary work space as quickly as humanly possible so that we can still make lovelies for you while we get Dan's new dye sublimation workplace ready.
|The land just goes on and on...|
