What's Going On Inside Boho Farm?

I have been terribly neglectful of our blog... 
With all the planting and working the land we are doing, it is hard to find time to sit at my desk!

Here is a little picture of all that has been going on...

After having 14 people over for Easter dinner...I decided to start moving things around...
I know...I am crazy.

I traded the huge painting I had hanging here with my friend and after a week of staring
at a blank wall, I thought Easter night at 8pm was a good time to start moving things around.
So I went around the house gathering art to go on this wall in a collage...
Now I have blank spaces everywhere else, but oh well, I like it!

In the breakfast all started with those panels that I got at Cost Plus for $24
 the day before Easter, when I was shopping for Easter baskets. 
The panels remind me of vintage bark cloth and summer...
but had hues in them that were not it the room. 
 I solved that problem by moving the vintage print that was in our sun room
 into the nook to go with those browns and greens...
I am actually going to add one more piece...a wicker chair.

I am LOVING succulents right now.

This is my "new" favorite jam cookbook...I bring it to bed with me each and every night!

Here is my flea market find from last weekend.  We were at the JAM flea market in
Old Town Scottsdale last Sunday and in the booth right across from mine was this table and I
kept staring at it and I knew he needed me to take him home and love him.
So here he is in my drawing room.  Doesn't it look perfect!

Two things I love... my table and my Pendleton plaid blankets...I remember having Pendleton
wool blankets as a kid--I have a soft spot for them.  Can you spy my new green screen door?
We removed one just like it from this house 14 years ago and now I am putting one back on again.
I just love the sound it makes...swoosh/slam...pure happiness.

Here is the big picture

This is what else I have been doing...jamming like a mad jammier. 
Our strawberries are at their best and so I have been making strawberry balsamic jam
and strawberry rhubarb jam.  They sold like hot cakes at the JAM Flea Market! 
But don't worry, I will be making more for the Arcadia Edible Tour on May 15th.

And I have been working on the hall almost ready to unveil it.

I will post about what is going on outside on the BOHO Farm next...



  1. you really have been busy and it looks incredible!

  2. I am loving all your little changes...I know I have also being neglecting the inside of my house since spring arrived here in FL...

    Loved seeing the article on about your chicken coop...Your coop is one of my inspiration coops for when we finally built the chicken permanent home.

    Keep up the great work

  5. Hey Caroline, I really like your style! (and you!) j

  6. Wow you have really been busy. It hasn't warmed up enough where we live for the strawberries or anything else...sigh...will summer ever arrive. I love rearranging things and creating 'new' spaces. I like all of the light coming in your room. Good job.

    PS - I'm guessing Arcadia doesn't mean Arcadia, Indiana?!?!!

  7. Caroline,

    It was my booth where you purchased the coffee table. Love how it looks in your home and so glad you like it. It was so nice meeting you and your beautiful daughter.
