Field Trip: Small Holding Farm and Whiteflower Farmhouse

Small Holdings Farm in Aquabogue, New York had a holiday open house on Saturday, so I took a drive to see what was for sale.  They had an interesting mix of architectural antiques and collectible stuff, lots of which appealed to me, but nothing that I needed.  My favorite piece was a cupboard that some clever fellow outfitted with lots of cubbies and added drawers made of cheese boxes to.  Loved it -- I love anything with cubby holes, but I really don't need it.

On my way back home I stopped at Whiteflower Farmhouse in Southold.  It's a great space -- nice and clean and simple and open.

 I loved these tiny little jelly jars with different motifs in each glass.

I also loved the assortment of old Belgian linen.  I have been thinking of making kitchen curtains out of old linen, but the price was prohibitive and I really want my linen to have a red stripe, not blue.  There were old linen sheets, too, that are probably a dream to sleep under on a summer night by the sea . . . . I made no purchases, but it was a fun morning out.
