A Great Find!

My sister and nephew were down for a visit this past week and we finally got a chance to take a ride down to Nelson County to check out a little place that I had been reading about for over a year. It was so worth the wait! My great little find of the week is called Notforgotten Farm; a humble farm owned by Lori and Peter Brechlin  in Amherst, Virginia.

Lori's shop is in a quaint, unique cottage with a wonderful garden that instantly welcomes you inside the front gate. All around the front porch there are antiques for purchase and great pieces that are perfectly placed to complete the feeling that you have just stepped back in time. The real surprise comes when you walk through the front door and it's time to take in all the goodies in the shop! If you are at all a fan of Lori's work you will not be disappointed. I had a hard time restraining myself from buying everything I saw. In addition to all her great pieces, she offers the work of some other really talented artists. Two of which we had the pleasure to meet; Joan and Felicia. Felicia, better known as Flea is Lori's stitcher and we got to see her at work. Trust me, when Lori says she is the fastest stitcher in the East, she is not exaggerating!

Tonight when I was reading through all the recent blog posts from the blogs I follow, I found Lori is having a giveaway. I am so excited to have an opportunity to win one of her kits, I thought I would share! You can also find some of her patterns in her Etsy Shop.
