On Friday I shared that I was going away with some friends to Autumn House Farms for a girls get away craft weekend. We were to stay at The Shepherd’s Rest on the property of the farm. The weekend turned into so much more than just a weekend away with some of my friends to knit and paint bird houses.
Yes, we acted silly and took silly pictures, we acted like a typical group of girls do when they are together (even girls in their 30s).
But the weekend turned into so much more than all that. It was a weekend that made you think. Think about what is really important in life, think about what kind of life you want to lead, think about what kind of person you want to be. This was all because of our host at the farm Harriet Knox. She was such an incredible woman that I will dedicate a separate post to her tomorrow. She not only taught us about life but also about running a sheep farm and wool mill which I think we will also save to talk about later this week.
So for today I’ll just show you some highlights of the farm.
This is The Shepherd’s Rest where we stayed…it’s the guest house on the farm and was built in the 1860′s. It was rustic but beautiful with beautiful antiques throughout the house where ever you turned. We will also save the antiques for another day because that could be a post in its self.
As I mentioned I will be continuing to write about my weekend for the rest of the week because there was just too much to put in one post. So please check back in with me because I have so much more to share about this incredible place. If you would like to hear another perspective of the weekend check out my friend Anne’s blog. She joined us this weekend and is excited to share her experience so take a jaunt over to her site at:All About the Beez
