Bibury Beans, 30″x 30″ mixed media (oil and ink) on canvas by Katherine Dove For those of you who follow this blog, you may remember that one of my favorite places to visit is the Cotswolds.

Love my sweet writing companion. 🙂 “If you want to concentrate deeply on some problem, and especially some piece of writing or paper-work, you should acquire a cat. Alone with the cat in the room where you work…the cat will invariably get up on your desk and settle placidly under the desk lamp…The cat will settle down and be […]
Our beloved Clementine Kitty and Dash are both rescued pets, and they have brought an immeasurable amount of love and joy into our lives. They never cease to amaze us with their intelligence, sensitivity, humorous personalities, and affection toward us as well as each other.

Morning snuggles with Clementine Kitty and Dash. Happy Weekend!!
I first discovered the Shenandoah Valley artist, Marsha Heatwole several years ago while visiting an art gallery in downtown Lexington, Virginia. I love the way she captures farm animals and their personalities in such a delightful and whimsical manner. Farmguy and I purchased this painting a couple of months ago at the Roanoke Sidewalk Art Show, and I absolutely love […]

Broadway is a charming place with a number of fantastic art galleries that we always enjoy visiting. A friend recommended that we stop by John Noott Galleries as they have a variety of […]
Home Sweet Home I enjoy traveling as well as experiencing and learning new things; however, after being on vacation the last couple of weeks, it’s really nice to be home again. I always miss Green Hill Farm and all of our sweet animals when Farmguy and I are away. Coming home to this special place fills my heart with […]
Gloucestershire, England or the Cotswolds is such an enchanting place. We love its history, stunning gardens, art galleries, natural beauty, and farmland. My favorite thing is waking up to the sound of lambs baahing, roosters crowing, and wood pigeons cooing. Every morning and evening, Farmguy and I walk around the little village where our cottage is located. Yesterday, we happened upon a friendly and curious herd of cows. They had the sweetest faces and the most entertaining mannerisms. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did! Have a wonderful weekend!
