My Divine Ya Ya Moment....on a Sunday



The Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood

I had a "Ya Ya" moment on Sunday and I needed to share. I am spending the summer exploring workshop ideas for Tahilla Gatherings, my business idea that continues to evolve. My hope is to use Tahilla Farm as a venue for women  to come together to discuss topics of mutual interest and share in the joie de vivre of life. I am currently exploring ways in which I can achieve those goals.

News From Tahilla Farm: Gardening, Books and Shopping Tips


Hello! Hello! and Happy Weekend!


It was a busy week around Tahilla Farm, as I dug my way in and out of pots and into the herb gardens. I was fortunate to spend some time on Monday with a very talented plantswoman and garden designer, Maude Odgers, who guided me in the plant selection. We went along to a wonderful nursery, Walkers Farm in Dummerston, Vermont.

Sharing the LOVE....The Travelwrap Company

The Traveler....
Yesterday I calculated my "air time" since leaving Tahilla Farm three weeks ago. Through Hong Kong, China and Australia I have clocked 55 hours in the air, excluding transit time. Ah...the things we do for the people we love! It's been a whirlwind visit full of laughter, food and family. The very best kind of trip. Times that I cherish dearly.

Taking it easy in Hong Kong...


Tea time in Hong Kong..



Good Morning, Good Afternoon, Good Evening!

Seeing that I am somewhere in between, I thought I might as well cover it all! I am in a rainy Hong Kong at the moment, taking it easy, taking some down time and truth be told...feeling a bit restless.

The First Gathering...Tahilla Farm



My Vintage Corona


My First Gathering…

I am typing away with this much loved vintage Corona typewriter behind me, thinking about all that has transpired in the past months and days. As many of you helped to shape what has transpired, I thought I would "report in".

I have always known there is a special magic that happens when women talk together. We have been doing that through Collage of Life for nearly ten years. Because of the connections that have been made, Tahilla Farm was found, bought and renovated...and as a result, I am able to write from the "space" that was once a hay loft and now my studio. I feel truly blessed by the constellation of friendships forged through blogging.
