Welcome!

Welcome!
Hi Folks! welcome to my 'other' blog!! ... Midnight Farm was created as a place to show my love of Hallowe'en...so you'll see a more "colorful" side to my work here ~ I am a full-time Folk Artist living in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, on an 84 acre farm named Notforgotten Farm... I play in the dirt ~ I collect old and odd things ~ I throw my head back and cackle when I laugh...I celebrate Olde Hallow's Eve everyday...I raise orphaned Opossums and other little creatures that may need a helping hand...I am a Good Witch...I love my family & friends ~ I see the past through the eye of a needle...

All Hallow's Evening����(looks like my farmhouse)
"ahhhh....that's better ~"
nothing like the feel of Autumn air in my hair
and the smell of woodsmoke ~
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~{||||||||||
 
off we go then!
above the farmhouse & woods...
...through the moon's glow and 'round again ~
soaring high & dipping low!!
up above the mustard & crimson maple trees...

~ Portals to AUTUMN ~

 
Imagine
stepping through
 any of these magnificently decorated doorways...
 
 


and being transported to a Land of Perpetual Autumn ~
 
would you enter?
 
 



...would you leave?
 
 

 
 
would you find yourself there
as a child again?
 
running through leaves
bobbing for apples
walking the streets at night
with pillowcase in hand
and wearing a burnt-cork beard
and loosely fitting overalls?
 
 
 
 
would your days be filled with
woodsmoke
bittersweet
crows
&
cornstalks?
 
 
 
or
pumpkins & gourds
things that go bump
distant fires burning brightly on hilltops?
 
 
 
 
If it were true...
that I could open any one of these doors
and waiting for me on the other side would be the Autumns from my childhood ~
I would not step lighty in....
 
I would run full-force
with broad smile and open arms
 
 
 
 
Hoping for Autumn to catch me
and keep me
forever...
 
 


...would you
take my hand
and join me?

The Fashionable Witch ~

Living on a farm

to wear these,

 I know it's only June ~
...but my heart aches for an eternal Autumn.
 
Blessed be!
