I came across this article about the modern American farmer, and saved it for the release of our Farmer’s Daughter catalog. The Morning News showcases the amazing photos from Paul Mobley’s book “American Farmer: The Heart of Our Country” and an interview with the photographer that spent four years exploring the people that are bringing food to our local farmer’s markets.

I love this dog hat. I love it! Trixie totally needs one. Trouble is, I can’t seem to find a pattern for it anywhere! I can’t even find out who made it! I found the picture on fffffound, and they claim that they found it on Apartment Therapy. However I searched all over Apartment Therapy and came up with nothing! Do any of you skilled knit and crocheters have any ideas of how one would make this hat?
Note: Thanks to reader ZombieFace, I now know where you can find the dog hat on the web! See it here, and it’s Apartment Therapy page here! Thank you ZombieFace!
Additionally – while I was looking for the dog hat on Apartment Therapy, look at what I did find!
A hamburger bed! I never would have thought I’d want to sleep with lettuce and cheese sheets and a bun comforter, but actually, the hamburger bed looks pretty comfy! It really amuses me, so I wanted to share it with you!
Above is the girl who created the bed, relaxing on her design. To top it off, you can be the hamburger bed’s Facebook friend, if you feel so inclined.
I know it’s a little late to be posting about calendars, but I couldn’t resist showing you this cool bubble calendar! Popping the bubbles on bubble wrap is one of the most satisfying things I can imagine, so I love the idea of having one to pop for each day or the year! Get one here.
I had lots of fun flipping through this online gallery of book covers and designers! I love seeing the different versions of the same books and seeing covers I’ve never seen for books that I have read.
Have you ever bought a book based on the cover? Did the book live up to the art? Leave us a comment with the link to your favorites!
I’m loving this cover I spotted today. Maybe I’ll give it a read…
It’s poll time! Last week, I asked which slip you liked best out of three of our newer styles, and the answers came out very even, with the Tie Dye Ruffles Slip coming in first by only about 20 votes!
This week, I wanted to ask you about this really cool poncho we just came out with, the Solid Pullover Poncho. I tried one on yesterday, and I just love it! It’s about the comfiest thing ever, and it looks really cute on! As usual, I’m stuck on the colors though.
First, check out the poncho in Coral below.
Next, here it is in Grey Heather.
Below, find the poncho in Midnight.
Finally, here’s the poncho in Bark.
What do you guys think? Which color would you get?
As occasionally happens, we have a pair of unintentional twins at the home office today! Jasmine and Kristin came in wearing the same fun Free People top! Even sweeter, they are both Intimates Designers, and sit right across from one another! Cute!
Glamping, or glamorous camping, is starting to become more popular as a form of camping for people who wouldn’t ordinarily enjoy camping. There are a number of glamp-sites popping up everywhere! Pre-pitched and lavishly furnished tents, stocked ponds, and numerous other amenities are some of the features of these places. For the most part they do not have electricity or internet though – thank goodness! I think if they had internet or electricity their resemblance to camping would be pretty much gone. The New York Times has a little article about glamping here. What do you guys think? Do you want to go glamping?
