Today I want to share a bit about a friend of mine, Reba. Reba and her family moved to the northeast kingdom of Vermont with their six children and built a straw bale home on ten acres and lived without electricity for a couple of years. All of their children are now grown and they continue to live simply and grow much of their own food. Both Reba and her husband work with their hands for their livelihood.
She and her family have been a wonderful example to our family and visiting with them on their homestead always brings a sense of warmth and peace.
In addition to all the many homesteading skills Reba has acquired and practices, she is also a talented artist. One of her many gifts is print making. Recently she opened her own shop at etsy and I thought I might share some of her work here at Friday Connections.
She hand carves her stamps usually in linoleum or potatoes.
Warm wishes for a beautiful weekend. Our family is going on our yearly trek to Cape Cod to stay with my mom and step-father in a house they rent on a beautiful inlet down a quiet dirt road. We plan to spend lots of time playing in the sand and biking and just being.
