I've been chatting with Danni @ Silo Hill Farm for about a year now. Danni is a craft blogger. A craft blogger who not so secretly wants to be a furniture painter. She paints stuff all the time. But she couldn't quite make the leap into furniture painting. I kept telling her "TAKE THE LEAP WHY DON'T YOU????!!!!! But she would not.
Then I found out that she lives about 15 minutes off the road. The road I take several times a year when I take the trek to Oklahoma to visit my family.
Freaky huh? I drive by Silo Hill Farm several times a year!
So we made a plan. A plan where I could come in and sing in my loudest Mighty Mouse voice "HERE I COME TO SAVE THE DAY!
She showed me pictures of what she wanted to paint, I recommended the paint, she picked the colors and ordered from our favorite Miss Mustard Seed stock list. All I had to do was show up.
Danni welcomed me as any good blogger friend should - with a glass of wine.
But this wasn't really a wine fest. We had painting to do!
And I will tell you all about the painting. Later.
But first let's look around Silo Hill Farm.
The view -
The crafts -
the colors -
She's a green girl like me!
This is Finn - short for Finnegan (I think).
He's like the coolest dog ever. But he's camera shy. As soon as he saw the camera he would turn his head and walk away. I did get this one picture. Finn swims in the creek. Silo Hill Farm has its own creek. Bet you don't have a creek.
We got to take a short road trip one day. That was when I saw this. A cow on a house.
Bet you don't have one of those either.
That house was just outside of Plew.
I want to live in a town named Plew.
Say Plew again.
It's a wonderful word.
Something I learned at Silo Hill Farm . . . There is a fungus that grows on mulch that looks like dog vomit.
It's called Dog Vomit Fungus.
Did I mention that Danni was a pure joy to be around?
It won't be long until I'll be back - back to Willard, Missouri. Visiting Silo Hill Farm. Next time I need to stay longer so I can eat steak at the bar, Mexican food at ????? AND get Danni to cook for me!
Did we paint? Heck yea, we painted. Painting stories to come...
Make something wonderful today!
