"Rosy's Bluets"....a fairy tale 

"Rosy's Bluets" is back from the publisher! Reminiscent of the "Little Golden Books" for children, Rosy's story begins, as all good fairy tales do, with "Once upon a...". Based on the real "Goodnight Rose Moon", the first foal born on our farm, it opens with the arrival of a new baby horse who was born under the full "pink" moon of April.  Rosy begins a charmed life having received a kiss from the moon and given the gift of magic moon dust.  As she spends her first day frolicking through the pasture a wondrous event happens and all the birds, the moon, the sun, and the stars marvel at the unfolding miracle .  In keeping with a real day the book travels from deep midnight blue pages through purple, rose, orange and sky blue then back again.     A "goodnight read" from Goodnight Farm!  CORONAVIRUS SPECIAL   $15.95 reg $19.95

One-of-a-kind offerings:

Milkweed Pod in Summer Hues

I love color and have been playing around with new concepts for baskets.  This basket has part of my grapevine lashed together for the rim with round reed weavers dyed in summer shades of blues, peach, greens and red.  When I began this basket the shape reminded me of a mussel shell but as it progressed it began to resemble half of a milkweed pod, hence the name, Milkweed Pod in Summer Hues.  The basket measures 25 inches long and about 10 inches across.  It is a shallow, irregular basket and would be a lovely accent piece in the home.

SOLD!     

Farmer's Market Locations:

Lest I forget....

An elderly friend, at the age of 90, once told me the wealthiest people were not those with the most money but those who had good friends.  I am fortunate to have some very good friends and offer some of their websites for your consideration.  Beth Stafford, a very talented, creative, North Carolina artist; Rackliffe Pottery, hand-thrown, family owned pottery, offering Maine themes; plus my good friend Laura Brainerd who runs a unique bed and breakfast in Union, Maine.  And of course, all my equine friends with all their pretty horses, Flyin Fox Ranch, Crossover Stables, and Harris Paint Horses.
