Are you ready to take a trip to the farm? As a child I always loved visiting my great grandparents out in the country. The contrast between my “city life” and their “country life” was always a great cause for excitement. Visiting the animals, picking fresh produce, and getting water from a pump are memories they will never forget.
The Simple Stories Homegrown Collection celebrates the very best of farm living! You’ll love the tractors, sunflower fields and fresh picked wild flowers. The colors are sunny yellow, painted barn red, garden green and cool sky blue.
This collection includes bits and pieces printed, die cut images as well as journaling ephemera to use as background layering or for adding some handwritten notes for documenting your favorite memories.
All of the details are just right too. I remember a trip into town which included a diner, gas station, laundromat and yes.. a general store that held a little bit of something for everybody. There wasn’t a lot to see in town.. but we always found the best ice cream to keep us cool in the hot summertime.
The farm fresh produce was always amazing!! Actually, seeing the vegetables grow!!! And they couldn’t be fresher... straight from the garden to the table. Of course, Great Grandma canned the surplus – another surprise… seeing the rows of mason jars in neat rows on the shelves in the dirt cellar.
I had lots of fun with this collection – making table settings with plaid print table cloths and farm fields from polka dot and honeycomb prints.
I love all the embellishments that are total eye candy! This collection includes decorative brads, enamel dots and washi too. And MOOOOve over! One of the rolls of washi even has a spotted print!
There’s lots of punny sentiments too! I think this one is my favorite! You don’t have to be a farmer to appreciate it.. seriously, if your dog has ever gotten away from you this one will hit home!
I think the memories each collection brings to mind is why I love Simple Stories so much. I live in the suburbs on the outskirts of Chicago now – but I still keep a garden. I’m still delighted to see a flower turn into a piece of fruit or a vegetable. Enjoy the good life and document your trip to the country with this Homegrown Collection!
