Natural Earth Farm and Fiber Studio {giveaway}

Today’s giveaway is from Tonya of Natural Earth Farm and Fiber Studio.  You might know Tonya from her blog, Joyful Living.  It’s a lovely chronicle of her family’s days, living simply and with gratitude.

“Our family – Mom, Dad, and seven children (the oldest of which is in college and the youngest is 2 years old) work, learn, and play together on our small homestead in northern Vermont. After living in Massachusetts our family felt that we were called to live more simply, work with our hands if possible, and be as family centered and community involved as we could. We feel blessed to have found our little rustic cottage on 3.5 acres in a small town with just 600 people. Although we live 4 miles down a gravel road, we know most of our neighbors within a mile radius.”

“Our business has evolved over the years from making simple waldorf style toys to rustic home decor and we have a wedding line as well.  We also offer hand knits (knit by Tonya) for your little ones.”

“Most of our items are made of birch, maple or ash. Our family gathers branches from neighbors’ lands. One neighbor wants their field expanded. Sometimes we gather branches after the power company clears the lines.”

(Ginny here–just wanted to share a photo of the way we use birch branch hooks in our downstairs bath.  I really love them.)

Tonya is offering one Small Things reader a $50.00 gift certificate to her family’s shop.  In addition, she is offering 10% off all orders with the coupon code “SMALLTHINGS”.
