Fun News to Begin the New Year

You all have been such a lovely part of our Hawthorne story, from the very beginning. Yesterday a new chapter begins. Our 1920 farmhouse was originally part of a farm way back when. The neighbor next door actually grew up in our house, then living in the house next door to us. We got to know her and her husband and were quite fond of them. In the last few years, they both passed. Hawthorne was on a small parcel of land right in the middle of what was the original farm. Our fun news is we bought the rest of the land (10 acres, along with our 1, making it a magic 11, a number you know near & dear to my heart) along with their house. We are pretty over the moon and dreaming of all the possibilities. I am daydreaming flower farm, while Mister Sive an orchard. The above photo, which I shot for Pottery Barn a few years back, you can see the outline of the fence, next to the pond. Oh yes, we now have a glorious pond! We are dubbing the new house, Little Hawthorne. Built in the 50’s, it is as solid as a rock and we are psyched about fixing it up. It will be a charming guest house, as well as be part of the Airbnb family when we are not there. Cheers to the next chapter of Hawthorne! Thanks for following along. X, T2+B
