"Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.” ~ Minor Myers, Jr
i read this quote while surfing the internet a few years ago. it moved me. so i created a sign. i wanted it to be simple. and direct. and much like the quote that inspired it, i wanted it to be powerful. i hoped that its words would speak to everyone that had the opportunity to read it. that it would remind them that they are responsible for their actions. that they have control over the energy that they share with those they meet.
since it is wednesday, i get to share another blogger/shop i love and today’s is all about Horsefeather Gifts. they are also a family run shop. i LOVE handmade gifts (obviously!) and adore Chelsea’s work. she and her mom, Tammy, started Horsefeather Gifts back in 2009 and it has been so great to see them grow so quickly!
Christmas Wishes from our family to yours! you have blessed us this year and we are so grateful for your love and continued support of our little handmade business. we couldn't do what we do without wonderful customers like YOU!!
a few years ago, my friend ashley asked me to take her family motto and paint it on a sign. she wanted to hang the sign above their front door as a reminder to her family. she wanted them to read it each time they left their home. to encourage them to be their best selves.
meet my great friend Jessica! i love that the virtual world of blogging/small businesses brings together new friends. i am so happy to call Jessica from Jessica N Designs one of my friends! we met several years ago and it's been so fun to walk this creative journey with her. she is crazy talented and has a great sense of humor…if you follow my facebook or instagram feeds you know that‘s super important to me!
last summer, while looking for unique and interesting 4’s to add to our family number wall, i got the idea to make a domino. 2 dots on top and 2 dots on the bottom. representing our little family of 4. i asked my dad if he could make one for me. so he went out into his workshop and played around with a few sizes until he came up with this one!
yes, i have the best dad in the whole world! the BEST!
now that I am an “official” blogger or whatever that means, I thought I would use Wednesdays to share some things that I love and that are inspiring me. maybe a delicious recipe, an encouraging instagram feed, a great product, a new blogger, or one of my favorite shops.
today is a favorite shop day.
hi friends. welcome to the Barn. and welcome to our blog. we are so excited you are here.
five years ago when I started Barn Owl Primitives, I didn’t even know what a blog was. sure, I’d read lots of them. I’d visited them. searched them for DIY tutorials of fun projects to do with my kids. maybe even commented on one or two. but I had no idea that they were called blogs. and I had no idea that the word BLOG would become a household word.
