hello its

January

New Year, new decade. Seems so weird to me that it is 2020. I am a little late in writing this because the flu hit our family on New Years day and it knocked the wind out of us. Dino and I are still recovering.

I am so looking forward to this year. It is comforting knowing that Lydia is happy and where she should be. Last year tore me apart. I could hardly focus on anything, not knowing where she was going to be. What a difference a year makes. Always thankful for God's presence and for His blessings in my life. "Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever"

I have so many ideas and plans. I don't know how to organize it all in my brain. The garden is always in my heart. I am expanding a little more this year. Making a bigger cutting garden, and looking into dying fabrics with the plants that I grow.

I want to post more of my little home projects. The living room, which I continue to work on. My bathroom, which is 99% finished. Always dreaming about the kitchen...we'll see where that leads. I have a small home and a very tight budget. I don't mind that at all. I love my home and love working from home.

Also, look for more stitching projects. I know I don't offer enough, but I really hope to create more. You can still find me on Early Work Mercantile the first of every month at 8:00 am eastern time.

Lastly, please note that my email is jenntavoletti@gmail.com for now. My other account is still not working correctly and I am unable to use it.

Thank you all for your kindness and friendships this past year. It has been a blast. Wishing you much love and happiness this new year.
xoxo Jenn

“I am still continuing to build this space of mine. Sometimes I need a little pause for what is going on, but I want this to be a happy place for ideas and inspirations.  To work at my own pace with creating. I hope you will keep on visiting me.  I can honestly say that the greatest joys in my life are not the things I own, but the relationship I have with God, my  family, and friends – near and far.”  ~ Jenn Tavoletti

Bread making ~ You can do it!

I was looking at pictures while we were sick last week and thinking back to our visit with Dino’s cousins.  They live on Maui. It was one of our most favorite vacations ever.  We were so lucky to experience Maui life through local eyes.  We hiked, surfed, and snorkeled off of rocky beaches.  We foraged […]

Christmas Time at 1824 Walker Farmhouse

After a totally wonderful few days with all of my friends at 1824 Walker Farmhouse, Dino and I have been getting ready and are so excited for Lydia to come home…this evening! Before that happens, I wanted to share a few pictures from the weekend. Thanks to so many of you for coming to visit […]

The Sunday Drive

My mom has told me many stories about my grandfather.  A lot of them are about when he would take the family on long drives while she was growing up. (I think that is how they found the town were they built their cabin.) My grandfather would tell my mom and Uncle Jimmy to get […]

Small Batch Applesauce

Every Fall I go into this little crazy nesting phase, where I want to preserve and freeze everything.  Do you do that? Homemade applesauce is one of those things that just changes my world.  Seriously, maybe not my world, but it is yummy!  We have a little orchard near our cabin, and every autumn I […]

Handmade Lavender Pillows

Last summer, I bought scoops and scoops of dried lavender from my friend Audrey at 1824 Walker Farmhouse to make little lavender pillows. Not only do they smell wonderful, they are lovely to give as little presents. The thought of reusing worn fabrics to make something sweet in this disposable world is very pleasing to […]
