How i see myself through my childhood friend eyes. . she is a master of soothing art she puts her hand on your hand when it’s trembling with fear or happiness, she is emitting that kind of light that is balancing you and giving what is needed . She doesn’t need master degree of calmness to make you feel alive again to stop looking backwards and forward but finally put your head on her knees and live life like that . is she the sea or the misty mountain for you she can be any kind of sanctuary she is holding you tight and saying gently: “shhh, it’s all gonna be alright” she is right there, smiling to you from the reflection of deep dark waters . Who is soothing you? . #myslowsummer #whphidden

Sunrise over Clover Valley Hill out back behind the farm. Those little peaks in the distance were originally named Golden Eyries but officially became Golden Ears in the 1940’s. With the Pacific Ocean 15 minutes to the southwest and the start of the Garabaldi Mountain Range 20 minutes to the northeast, we live in a pretty spectacular place.

Reflection of the sunrise and Morning Glory. The vines are doing their best to take over the workshop & I dont mind a bit. My garden beds are another story.

The tiniest little forest grove at the back of the abandoned farm next door. When we moved in there were a couple of horses back here but the farmhouse is all boarded up now and the horses are gone. I see some exploring in my future.

I’m wishing that every morning was a lazy Sunday morning.

I’m not sure what this little lean-to against our barn was originally used for, but nature seems to have grand plans for it.

Our little farm is about halfway up what, according to a heritage marker I saw yesterday, was once known as Clover Valley Hill. I think I’m going to start using that when I refer to the farm. Anyone trying to find it will end up hopelessly lost, but it will definitely keep the riffraff away (yep...riffraff. It may be my favourite word so far this week.)

It looks like my 1950’s zig zag attachment works on my 1910 Singer treadle...I am a happy wee Luddite.

The weather is still scorching here but my brain has apparently started heading in another direction...

The weather and the old pasture behind our place seem to change daily right now. A heatwave one day and a chill in the air the next...autumn is coming.

There may be some Blackberry Bourbon Jam making in my future...

The poppies in the garden this year are pretty amazing...I had no idea there were so many varieties, but every morning on my walk out to the barn, I see half a dozen new ones that don’t look like any of the others.

I’m not sure how I ended up with so many different varieties of Poppies in the garden this year, but they’re gorgeous!

Awhile back I realized that I needed to learn to find joy in things that would have made me crazy before. The wilderness creeps in on our little place on a regular basis. The entire perimeter is guarded by a thicket of blackberries, and random scruffy plants, herbs & weeds magically appear on a regular basis. Before, I may have pulled this on out in an attempt to make this little shed perfect, but instead I’ve come to enjoy its happy rambling nature. Plus, I admire its tenacity...its even survived the goats & their “landscaping” episodes 🌼

There may be another weekend trip to the Farmer’s Market in my future...the Sweet Peas from a couple of weeks ago made me ridiculously happy #imasimplegirl

Behind our little farm is an old empty farm house. At the back of the property is this little meadow and a stand of trees. I think I may sneak over the old fence this weekend and take some photos.

Poppies!!! The little bed I filled with poppy & Cosmos seeds in the spring is starting to come alive! Now if I could just remember what else I planted so I could do some weeding, I would be a happy little gardener.

Coffee & crochet...the end of the heatwave has me thinking cozy thoughts ✨

This photo made me realize that I would really like to plant some white hydrangeas this fall...bushes & the climbing variety (which I love). Are any of you hydrangea fans? And which are your favourites?

Along with everything else around here, the yarrow is also in full bloom 💛

The wild butterfly bush is in full bloom in the back field. It’s everywhere...just like the Monarch Butterflies. Has anyone else noticed how many more there are this year?

This weekend’s dahlias from our local dahlia farm. It’s the cutest little wooden stand, you can tell it’s definitely a labour of love for the growers.

We moved to this little farm only a few months ago and I’m still getting to know the house and which room has the best light for photos. The bedroom is hands down my favourite. Every photo I take in there looks great, even this one of my old white dresser.

The pasture beside the house is full of flowers...and flowers disguised as weeds. I’ll have to do a search to find out what this little one is (any ideas?) It’s a tenacious little plant though...so far it has survived the goats, unlike the honeysuckle.

“Nah, don’t worry Frank, our gigantic spool of cable will be fine left here for the weekend. Who’s going to steal something from in front of a church?” “I dunno about this Stan...”

Chilly summer nights call for warm hands, a cozy blanket scarf & a favourite mug full of something yummy. (Gorgeous blanket scarf from @tartanblanketco given to me by my amazing sister @sarah_elizabth & coffee from @kickinghorsecoffee)

One day I’ll work up the nerve to wander down this driveway, but for now I’ll just take photos from the road. #drivewayenvy

Sunrise out in the back pasture. I swear it looks different every single morning.

We’re more than halfway through the week, happy Wednesday evening! Pour a glass of wine, pick up a favourite book and take a deep breath, the weekend will be here before you know it 💕

I have a few mini-collections of unusual things, simply because they make me happy. These old spools of thread, while no longer useful, is one of those collections. They have me wondering about the women who bought and used them decades ago and the combination of the wooden spoils and the pink thread never fails to make me smile. Do you have any unusual collections?

The Tartan Blanket Co. is the result of many evenings dreaming, a lot of hard work, and a big leap of faith. Our family-run, Leith based business was created from love and we try to put that into every design created, every email sent and every order wrapped.

The other definition is “a wee nook inhabited by very small creatures” which I find equally charming. I hope that wherever you are tonight, you are as snug, warm and cozy as a little creature in a wee nook ✨

I’m about to put the horses out in the back field for the summer so I’ve been out there taking photos before they start doing their best lawn mower impressions. It’s so pretty and peaceful out there.

I came across this cute, little, white house on a lunchtime drive last week. Isn’t it adorable?

I went to our local farmer’s market yesterday and fell for this little sweet pea bouquet. They look right at home in my quirky, little owl creamer. I love owls and I’ve been busy sourcing some super cute owl-themed pieces for the store launch this fall.

I’ll admit to being a bit of a word nerd...coming across words that describe things I find peaceful or pretty makes me a wee bit giddy. This is one of them.

The back pasture is jam packed full of daisies and Queen Anne’s Lace at the moment...and...I heard a rumour that the apple trees back there are full too. I’ll be headed back to take a look as soon as it cools down a bit. The horses are of the opinion that I am a wuss and should go and look now.

Earlier this year, we shared that were lucky enough to visit The Social Bite Village, which is a low cost, safe living environment created to support up to 20 homeless people and help them transition into permanent accommodation, and employment. The Social Bite charity also runs a 'Pay it Forward' scheme, which allows you to pay in advance for a coffee or any item of food from the Social Bite menu and a local homeless person can come into a shop to claim it. We think this is a wonderful concept, and we hope that you don't mind us sharing with you. To make a difference, Text BITE00 £5 to 70070, or donate online through Social Bite's JustGiving page.

This was taken just after sunrise when the air was still cool and the morning mist was almost gone...we’re heading into another heatwave here in the Pacific Northwest so when I head out to the barn to feed the horses and goats, I’ll definitely be cherishing those cooler mornings. My UK skin really doesn’t know how to cope with this weather...I may have to become nocturnal.

We are big fans of blue and white colour combinations, particularly for outings to the coast. We found a lovely feed by @seasidecottagevlieland featuring white ceramics, striped beach umbrellas, sandy beaches, remote spaces and wild seas. We think it's rather nice, don't you? 💙 #tartanblanketco #colsie #myslowsummer #blueandwhite #seasidehome #seaview #blueandwhiteforever #seasidecottagevlieland #beachlifeisthebestlife #blankets #warmandcosy

Soft blue shades are perfect for brighter seasons. Combine a touch of softness with an outdoor shed and a calming pale blue exterior for harmonious summer days. 💙 #tartanblanketco #colsie #myslowsummer #allotment #allotmentlife #allotmentlove #homegrown #growyourownfood #thehappygardeninglife #thegoodlife

As the cooler evening breeze moves in across the sands, a warm blanket, some homemade soup and freshly-made bread provide the perfect solution. This soup looks so desirable, it prompted us to look for recommendations for similar soups in Edinburgh! @edinburghfoodhunter points us in the direction of Maxi's cafe for a good, homemade soup. Enjoy! 🍅 #tartanblanketco #colsie #myslowsummer #edinburghlife #edinburghfood #edinburghfoodie #lovedinburgh #homemadefood

In this hot weather, look for a shady spot, lay out a cosy blanket (or two!), pick up a good book and indulge in some natural, healthy snacks and a homemade, summer drink. Do lazy days get any better than this? ☀️🌲 #tartanblanketco #colsie #myslowsummer #lazydays #lazysummerdays #justchilling #resting #takingiteasy #lazymornings

This weekend, we have been inspired by a lovely article written by freshome.com titled 'Bring The Outdoors In With Our Favourite Ways to Display House Plants'. Amongst ideas such as hanging house plants from the ceiling, and wall-mounted house plant displays, we particularly like a floating ledge with a collection of house plants and pots. 🌱 Perhaps you have a 'pots and plants ledge' at home? We would love to see any images using #myslowsummer. ☀️
