Better Living through Creative Homemaking


Hello there, I’m Lindy!
I’ve been married to my High School sweetheart, Chris for 24 years and we have three children; two boys in college and a daughter who is a freshman in high school.

We live on a 12-acre hobby farm called Sweet Harvest Homestead, in the Southern Piedmont of North Carolina.  I spend my days taking care of our home, canning, baking, cooking from scratch, spinning wool from our sheep, gardening and taking pictures of it all.  I always wanted to be like Olivia Walton or Laura Ingalls and truly, I feel like I am – except we have running water.

I am a proud Tennessean and even prouder Southerner!

Ever since I was a little girl, I have been creating things.  I love making things that are pretty, practical and useful and I love teaching the old, but very useful home arts.

It is my goal to bring “Homemaking” back into the mainstream once again.  That is what this little blog is all about.

I believe you design the world you live in and that you have more control over your life than you know!

Thank you for stopping by!
