I'm ready to pack my trunks and head over to Une Minette on Sept 8th. Silk and cotton/cashmere scarves and ponchos dyed with all natural plant extracts. So farm fresh, you could practically pick them from the trees!

This scarf was made with Logwood gray and Purple extracts and iron was added to the gray, resulting in black splotches... another happy accident!
Thank you to Tim Geaney for the amazing pictures of Olga from Soul Artist Management, taken at Quarry Head Park in Wilton, CT.

Tim and Bill play in the Woodstock Golf Classic each year, while I sit by their glamorous pool and wait for the party to begin.
This year while everyone was out I scavenged the farm for plant life and rusty remnants for a hot steam eco bundle.
Rusted horse bits, old horse shoes and nails, grapes and vine leaves, ferns, and spring water are just a few things that I used to steam with the silk and linen fabric.
After the hot bundling process in CJ's kitchen I brought it home for a little bit of logwood dye and hand stitching.
The end product is a monogrammed table runner for their anniversary gift, literally infused with bits of Treasure Farm.
A small token in exchange for many wonderful memories.
Thank you to the Hitzig Family of Woodstock, NY. xoxo

Real stars are born and die in the universe every second.
I did my best to create some heavenly results on these silk scarves. I used Logwood Gray, Chestnut, a little Tannin extract, and tin and wooden star cut outs for resists.
The end product: subtle colors and hints of star shapes- out of this world.
