I have a mother-lode of pictures from Mary Jane’s Farm, so I’m posting a few more for you today.  Grab a cup of coffee….sit a bit ….

An adorable vintage apron hung in Mary Jane’s test kitchen  ( her temporary home after the fire destroyed the other one when her children were still young).  This is one very small kitchen space…use to be her whole house.

Just one of the ‘yummies’ we had at tea.  Nasturtium cupcakes.

The front porch is almost as big as the inside and cute as a button!

See all those fun vintage aluminum pans and bowls?  And I can’t help adoring that screen door….they were everywhere!

This is just part of the adorable (have I used that word already?) tent bathroom made for use by the B@B part of the farm.

The large shower is in the middle of these halves.

A tented tack room!

The first thing I noticed, after the floral beauty all around us, was the scents…divine scents surrounded us, as we emerged from the dusty car.  It was unbelievable!  Roses, several kinds of daisies, feverfew, just to name a few.

And last but not least, a little peak at the wallpapered chicken coop. 

We may have lost our way here and traveled many miles but after our visit we sure felt like we’d found home! 

It was a peaceful, enchanting ‘home away from home’….it was very hard to leave.


  1. That place... awesome eye candy. I could stay there for days. I love the apron curtains.

  2. Love the new pictures Karen. I have to say I'm pretty sure I need two of those screen doors. We had those at home on the farm, but they didn't seem like anything special at that time.

  5. It really must have been so hard to leave. I'm amazed with this place!!

  6. Oh my Starz! I forgot to 'close' the Apron Curtain when I was in the "Privy"... how silly is that,,, now Thank goodness it was far away enough from everything & one! lol!

  9. So fun! We live just a few hours south of there and I hope (dream) we can go next summer for our anniversary. I loved her magazine and books. I never dreamed when I started reading them that I would end up a true Idaho Farmgirl myself!
