|GIPSY in the PARLOUR's very first blog header from January 2010: The book from Gramma Dolly that inspired it all|
I've been blogging for 4 years at GIPSYinthePARLOUR.com & decided at the beginning of 2014 to merge GIPSY in the PARLOUR with her mother, our home, Lindell Farm.
GIPSY in the PARLOUR started off as an experimental art project in 2010 & evolved over the years into a wonderland of curated art, ephemera, vintage music, farming, mixology & the occasional Connecticut interest piece. While I love her, the friends I made through her & all that she stands for, it is time to move on & create something new, that's more "us" including The Mister, instead of only "me".
Starting fresh with a newly imagined online presence allows us to focus time a little more effectively on building this small farm into a working business. I'll likely not be publishing much curated art or music at our new online space LindellFarm.com, but you'll still find me publishing all things farm, nature & definitely mixology!! Hard working folks like us must always make time for leisure with the essential cocktail. In fact, I've pulled over copies of my favorite cocktail recipes from GIPSYinthePARLOUR.com, so you can find them on LindellFarm.com too - look under Lindell Farm > Cocktail Recipes !
As for Lindell Farm's Shop - I'm in the midst of creating new one of a kind wreaths with our gorgeous 2013 home-grown organic harvest. I'm also entertaining the idea of selling our wreaths locally & abandoning GIPSY in the PARLOUR's online selling approach. It seems to make more sense when I think of shipping to various parts of the country in terms of packaging & transportation - the shipping sortof out weighs all of the "green organic goodness" of what we intended by farming in the first place.
If you’re interested in featuring Lindell Farm’s wreaths in your shop & you’re located somewhere in the Northwest Hills of Connecticut, we’d love to hear from you!
I hope you'll follow Lindell Farm's journey - the best way to keep up with us is via Facebook [ RSS feed & other options coming soon ].
Cheers to new beginnings - see you soon at LindellFarm.com !!
