"Rosy's Bluets"....a fairy tale 

"Rosy's Bluets", written and illustrated by Pamela Rackliffe Capurso is 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!  Illustrations are printed from original collages using photographs of the real "Rosy".  $20.00

Appalachian Egg Basket

The Appalachian Egg Basket, whose name is derived from the purpose for which it was made, gathering eggs from the hen house, is ridged in the middle to prevent the eggs from rolling against each other and breaking.  This ridge also allowed for the basket to sit on the hip while gathering the eggs or to sit on the back of a horse or mule on the way to market.

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.
