The 2011 Update


It’s hard to believe its now officially summer. What a busy year it’s been… and its safe to say that 2011 has been particularly crazy here.

Let me catch you up on what’s been going on at Poverty Hills…

To start, we were blessed with out first child, Evie Mae, on April 5th. She surprised us by arriving about a month early! Weighing in at only 5lb, 7oz we were further blessed with no complications with prematurity. Oh yes… and she was 19 inches long! Little Miss has been thriving and we are thrilled to have her around!

Then, three weeks after Evie was born, our family gained another member when my brother Joe wed his lovely wife Erin. The wedding was beautiful, of course, and we have lots of memories of the day–including the best man’s speech!

I was honored to be asked to design the flowers for Joe and Erin’s special day! It’s always fun doing projects where you are given carte blanche over the materials. What a fun color those bridesmaid dresses were to work with!

Oh, and I’m sure you are wondering… YES! The pumpkins did get planted around all this craziness! For 2011 we have all of our favorites, plus some new ones we are so excited to see! I promise I will bring you more updates as the season progresses. I will also be posting the locations of where you can find us, the pumpkins–and Evie!–this fall.

And… in the meantime… you can catch us at the upcoming Plum Pickens! The ‘Christmas in July’ show will be held on July 30th from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. There will be all the lovely handmades, primatives, and other one-of-a-kind items that we love! For directions to the show, click here. Hope to see you soon!

    She is just beautiful! Sorry, I didn’t get back to see her at Venice. If you are out toward Elkhorn some Saturday stop in to The Whistle Stop to say hi!
    It will be a busy year for you with a new little helper in the pumpkin patch!
