Hopalong Hollow....

Hopalong Hollow, where the Blueberries grow sweet, and the moss feels soft beneath your feet.

    Hello to those of you who still visit here on this lonely little blog. It seems I spend a lot more time making videos on You Tube these days, so I guess that is my own fault. Anyway, for those who don't visit the youtube vids; please take a look at these last 2 entries on planting Antique Flowers from seed.
   

and most recent:

 I hope you all are using this wonderful time of year to it's best advantage. God Bless you!

Well, what can I say? This has been a surreal several weeks in this country, and in our world. You can really appreciate your freedom when you've lost it, albeit temporarily
.

I am thankful that, for us, staying in place is quite normal. We live in the country, outside a tiny town and our farm is vast and the air is fresh and there is plenty of work to do around here.
Nevertheless, May cannot come soon enough, lets get our country moving
again!


In this video, I am scavenging free plants, and cooking DELICIOUS Lemon curd cookies for today's Spring Tea.

 Making the most of the day....
Find something new to create, prepare your garden bed, learn a new recipe or read a great book.
 Sending greetings and well wishes to all of my Hopalong Hollow friends!

Tea with Beatrix Potter...

Why all the tea parties lately? Well, because there is no gardening to do in the winter. I spend the winter doing artwork, fiber and finally, in Feb and March, start planting seed in trays in the house.
I cover it all in this new video and I have about 15 minutes of information on the beloved Beatrix Potter; her life, her work.

Winter is tea time.....and we love tea in Hopalong Hollow


 "Afternoon tea and Winter Decor from the Garden"

"Cornish Cream, Scones and Tea with Charles Dickens"
 In this video I am actually cooking something. I rarely do that, but baking Scones is easy and Clotted cream is a delicious British treat that anyone can make.

Greetings from Hopalong Hollow!

It's been awhile, wow!
 But we are still here as the Hopalong Hollowfolk take over the studio, travel to shows and get new homes;
 Our Thanksgiving weekend show was less than successful, I must say. 
Sales for books and prints were moderate and we only sold one mouse and one bird.


Marley Potts is still with us.. I'm glad though. I just made him last week. It took about 34 hours to complete him, so I'd like to enjoy him for awhile.
 I created Miranda to replace her look-alike cousin who was adopted a month ago...


I am tempted to keep her...

  Ducks are always too adorable...
I created these in memory of dear old Mathilda the Goose; she passed away, I am so sad to tell you.


 We have one more showing this year at the Ohio Designer Winterfaire in Columbus Ohio. 
Maybe we'll see you there!
 Ready, set ROLL!!!!!
