Lately, I’ve been missing Fellsmere. I’m this odd mix, with one foot in the city and the other in the country. I get restless when I have too much of either one. Right now, I’m missing my mom’s ranch – the horses, goats, neighboring kitty cows and starry, starry nights. I want to swim with my pony, drink sweet tea and eat fried green tomatoes. I want to sit on the porch and watch the fireflies, while the crickets chirp and the scent of orange blossoms flood the air. I’m missing Fellsmere something fierce. It’s a good thing I’ll be there next week.

Tekserve wasn’t able to recover most of my photos, but I got really lucky. They retrieved family photos (yes!) and several of my Fellsmere photos, from my last trip to Florida. They’re a couple months old but I never shared them on here…so, here they are!

Unfortunately, you’ll have to meet my horses another time. All they could recover were the photos of our goats, Thelma and Louise. This is Thelma. She’s the most hilarious goat I have ever met. She loves to butt heads with everyone (gently), give kisses and follow you around like a little puppy. I love her.

Louise is the dainty, girly one. She’s a bit shy but always sweet.

Thelma doesn’t have a shy bone in her body.

Her favorite games include butting heads, chasing me around and pushing me out of her goat house, just to push me back in and repeat the process. She also loves chewing my clothing, when I’m not looking. What can I say? She loves fashion.

She also loves Bobby. And his hat.

Miku! She is a free spirit. I let her roam the property. She always comes inside with mud and leaves stuck to her.

Homemade swings are the best.

Sorry for the plethora of pictures…I guess I’m just a little homesick!

p.s. I’m in Los Angeles for the Unique LA craft fair…if anyone wants to come out this weekend, I believe I have a few free admissions to give out!

    Goats are awesomely hilarious! I used to know this pair, but they were preoccupied with food and when they headbutted you, it was actually kind of painful!

    I love your blouse and you hair bow. Have you ever considered doing a DIY on how you make your bows? They’re adorable.

  2. Angelaluisa says: April 29, 20094:55 am

    What days this weekend? If Sunday is an option, I’m game!

    P.S. This post made me smile from here to forever!

  3. podgehodge says: April 29, 20095:28 am

    Your goats are adorable!! Being at home, especially on a farm, is the most comforting feeling.

    I’m in love with your outfit, yet again! The blouse is exquisite.

  9. muchlove says: April 29, 20098:39 am

    the pictures with the goats are so cute. They know how to pose for the camera!

    oh, and how I’d love to play on a homemade swing.

  10. Kirsty says: April 29, 20098:46 am

    I love that top, it’s gorgeous!

  11. WELCOME TO MY WORLD says: April 29, 20098:55 am

    I love this post! The pictures are so great. My Dad has a homemade swing here in his yard. I was afraid to get on it at first because it is tied to a tree above the rocks that surround the pond. I love your blog!:)

  12. Jocelyn says: April 29, 20099:48 am

    Hi Keiko! I’ve never left a comment before but I just wanted you to know that I really enjoy taking a peek at your lovely blog every once in awhile to put me in a good mood. Especially this post, these are the most adorable/fun/beautiful pictures! thanks for sharing:)

  13. suz-xx says: April 29, 200910:06 am

    the pics are so cute! I love your hair.

  14. Leah says: April 29, 200910:53 am

    A goat in a hat, who’d believe it?
    So cute!
    I just wanted to tell you how lovely and inspiring your blog is, your style is completely your own.
    I envy you, and your sewing skillz.

  15. Katrina says: April 29, 200911:14 am

    The picture of Thelma in Bobby’s hat made me giggle. Moments like those don’t even need a caption! :)

    Will there be pictures from the Unique LA craft fair? I’ve never been to a craft fair (I’ve been a to a couple of broader sales opened up for both artists and vintage resellers, but never a strict craft fair) and am curious to know what the experience is like.

    I hope your time in LA is an enjoyable one.

  16. Antoinette says: April 29, 200912:12 pm

    I can see why you miss them! Beautiful photos, and the goat in the hat is classic. That could join dogs playing poker as an iconic image someday! I’d frame it. :)

  17. Abs says: April 29, 200912:21 pm

    Awww, cute photos! Yay for country girls! Living in a city is so rubbish sometimes, there’s nothing like fresh air and animals to put you in a good mood! I’d love to see horsey pics, I really miss riding when I’m away from home (which is a lot these days).

  18. Shorty says: April 29, 20091:30 pm

    Beautiful pictures! Looks like a wonderful place to spend time. I’m envious!!!

  19. Freya says: April 29, 20091:34 pm
