A Visit to Hawthorne Hill Farm

A couple of weeks ago the hubby and I went to visit a great place near our home called Hawthorne Hill Farm. I heard about it at a craft fair that I went to in September.

It's a 150 year old farmstead that is open to the public and features the work of local artisans and crafters, as well as unique collectibles and vintage finds.

There are also art workshops and women's retreats held here, as well as special events.

One of the large barns holds three levels of vendor booths.

This particular weekend was the Harvest/Halloween Market, so all the booths were showing fall and Halloween items. Coming up in November is the Holiday Market, when everyone will be showcasing Christmas themed items. I will be out of town that weekend, unfortunately. :-(

It's such a lovely farm and, of course, full of adorable vignettes everywhere, like this one above. I love the blue wicker and the red table and chippy red bench paired with the pumpkins and fall flowers. The color combination is unexpected, but lovely.

Inside the barn there were lots and lots of goodies. I especially loved this cloche on a stand with a bird and flower figurine inside. There were two of these.

Everything was displayed beautifully and creatively.

I especially liked what one artist did with this old door. Some of the panes of glass were covered in old newsprint and crows were nesting in the middle where a pane of glass was missing. A few spooky spiders added just the right touch.

I bought a couple of decorated vintage cabinet cards from a booth filled with neat things and used them to make two Halloween collages. Click HERE to see that project.

Thanks for stopping by!
I'll be linking up with A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday!

I love visiting shows like this, and I never get to! My favorite thing was the old door with the nest in the broken pane. So clever!
