MOST RECENT

Back home at Orchard Hill. It was so good to be in Europe, seeing new and well-remembered places; meeting new people and loved ones from times past. Now we are back to work in our busy lives on our wonderful hillside. But our journeyings are not finished. I continue to study my languages ( Italian, French, Spanish, and Hindi) so I can attempt to connect with wonderful people wherever we go. This little vignette represents a few of the precious things of our life: an old ceramic jar we purchased in Orvieto, Italy many years ago on our first trip to Italy together, white orchids from our hillside greenhouse, an old pioneer Mormon pine table. We will venture out again, but for now we will love the blessed life here in Utah.

So many purses, so many colors, such great deals! I love market day in Bastardo! And we love Italy!!! (Yes, and the name means the same in Italian as in English. It just happens to be our nearest market town!) #purses #somanycolors #colorfulaccessories #marketday #openmarket #colorfulpurses #yellowpurse #greenpurse #redpurse #bluepurse #electricblue #orchardhillstyle #lifeinitaly #marketsofumbria #colorsthatpop #splashofcolor #colorfulbags #whichonetochoose #bags #accessories #italianstyle #livinginitaly

Aren't they adorable? A baby Rex and Tori. Tori is one of my neighbors, who you will be seeing from time to time. She is helping me out by modeling some of the clothing I will be offering on my website (when I get it finished!). The added bonus: she loves my animals! Have a great Thursday!

Shall we dance? Bodice detail of a vintage formal dress my mom picked up years ago for her grandchildren to use playing dress up. Such a fun grandma! Pictured here at Orchard Hill resting on some artisan paper I picked up in Jaipur, India.

Good Sunday morning from Orchard Hill. In the mood for some of these cranberry/almond English-style scones. Does anybody else add nuts to absolutely everything? Pictured here with some of our own handthrown pink pottery, and a few of our rustic antique odds and ends.

Another glimpse of baby bunnies enjoying a rose treat here at Orchard Hill. Fresh flowers are so delicious! Oh and one curious little one exploring my phone.

Thinking of Italy this morning. This is Sirolo, near Ancona, on the Adriatic coast.
I took this photo, but if you want to see others in the area of Italy near our tower, follow my husband's IG, @torritower.

Oh! After years of thinking I don't fit anywhere in this stylistc universe, I have learned, thanks to one of my followers, that mine is called "Collected Style!" Well, that is what we are here at Orchard Hill: a collection of old, found, well-loved treasures, without much regard to current trends. Here we have a beloved old wooden camel picked up in Agra, India next to an enamelware pitcher from my mother, on an old Mormon pine table. Oh, and fresh flowers! Thank you, @myprovohome for letting me know that I'm okay!

We love our morning hikes! Two different dogs, two distinct personalities. Presley, the Portie, goes full body into the icy mountain stream; Mona, the Vizsla, tiptoes to the edge for a drink. Love them both!

Good Tuesday morning from the greenhouse at Orchard Hill. Such fragrant citrus blossoms-- I wish I could share it through my post!

Oh, and I tried three times to share another photo, but my writing kept getting deleted, so I finally gave up. Does anyone else ever have that problem with Instagram? So frustrating! I may try again tomorrow.

I love love the beauty and comfort of Indian clothing. So, this is my Indian-inspired skirt prototype. In India they call it a lehenga. I call it Beautiful Comfort. I have helpers working on getting the pattern right, then I will have some lovely skirts made of recycled Indian silk sarees on my website. Currently the website is under construction (by me!), and I am not a computer person -- nor am I a model, as you can see....but trying to pull everything together here at Orchard Hill! Stay tuned...and pray that I can figure out this website stuff!

Good Sunday morning from Orchard Hill! I filmed this lovely snowfall yesterday morning from our front porch, looking at the fruit trees in the front yard, and at the newer wing that was added a few years ago. I love spring snow -- so gentle, and knowing it will soon melt, so no need to shovel. Have a peaceful Sunday, as will we, here at Orchard Hill in Northern Utah.

"Oh please take me home! " I'm at the farm store picking up rabbit food, being enticed by the baby chickens. I'm sure I need some. Haven't had chickens in a few years. I love chickens. They make me smile. They make me laugh. But we travel a lot and my best helper (Priya!) thinks she doesn't like them. How is that possible? I guess I will have to go home without them.

Looking back and also forward. I've been a bit buried in taxes and other projects. Just took a minute to review last summer's photos. A good reminder that another lovely harvest will come, I have dishes in my pottery studio that are waiting for my hand to glaze them, there are wonderful, simple pleasures in my past, and just around the corner to come.

Oh tax time! I have to admit that I do not enjoy the hours spent on tax preparation every year, but I do love the warm glow of burning my redundant financial statements in the dining room fireplace at Orchard Hill. It's a stormy day here in northern Utah, warm fire, I'll get through another year of taxes. Have a lovely Thursday!

Oh my goodness! Sorry for the double post-- but I just looked at my feed and realized I had done flowers three days in a row! I love flowers, but my followers need baby bunnies, so here they are! A week old, and their eyes are starting to loosen. They're in what I call their "popcorn" phase. You think they are sound asleep, but then they pop. They set off all their litter mates, as well. I always have to caution people when they hold them to cover them with both hands because the little ones will suddenly pop right onto the floor!

Good Tuesday morning from Orchard Hill. Spotlighting a sweet little jar my mother-in-law made many years ago in a high school ceramics class (in Dallas, Texas) next to a little pitcher thrown here by me at Orchard Hill, resting on an old Mormon pine table. In trying to decide what our style is here, I've become aware that if there is a style at all, it's all about history, comfort, and family connections. It doesn't have a lot to do with popular trends. But isn't that a nice way to be?

Oh, and the rustic old door is one that I pulled out of a heap of trash on the curbside many years ago. I love it...but it's really really heavy!!! #familyhistory #pottery #orchardhillstyle #decor #eclectic #eclecticstyle #trends #popular #mormonpine #pinetable #antique #antiques #age #decorating #gerberadaisies #shabby #shabbystyle #ceramics #oldwood #olddoor #repurposed #upcycled #littlegems #personaltaste #homedecor #serendipity #orchardhilltreasures #trending #utah #wasatchfront #pioneerfurniture #handthrown #decoratingwithlove #dallas #personalstyle
