Derry Farm and Other Treasures: Friday Finds #90

Happy Friday, friends! Although, today is not so happy because I woke up to a light snowfall when I was hoping for sunshine and butterflies. Winter is stubbornly refusing to let spring make its final entrance which is making some people a little grumpy (I won’t mention any names). I can’t complain though when I remember what’s happening on the other side of the world. Instead, I’ll count my blessings, continue praying for the people of Ukraine, and keep waiting for sunny days.

Let’s start today’s collection of Friday Finds with this beautiful tour of Derry Farm, located between Charleston and Savannah. A gorgeous low country home is the star of the property, but there’s a couple of charming bunk houses as well. You don’t want to miss it!

You might remember that when I painted my bedroom, I considered a variety of green paint colors. I chose Evergreen Fog by Sherwin Williams, but I sure love these room examples showing Green Smoke paint by Farrow and Ball.

Some of the first flowers in the garden are violets, pansies, and Johnny-jump-ups. On my other blog, Pond and Garden, I shared how to tell the difference between these cheery blooms.

The interior design firm of Park and Oak is located in the Chicagoland area. I love their work and this kitchen makeover by them is pretty dreamy.

I wish I had stumbled across this pattern for making felt bunnies sooner. I don’t know if I’ll have time to make these for the grandkids before Easter, but they sure are cute and don’t look too hard to do.

While you’re awaiting Easter, consider this lemon cheesecake mousse dessert for your holiday meal. It’s such a pretty yellow color and is perfect for spring.

Enjoy your weekend! I’m hoping this is the last weekend of snow for us. Luckily, it’s only snowing lightly so nothing is sticking to the ground.

  1. I agree that Spring is taking its sweet time making an entrance in the burbs of Chicago, Jen. I love the little pitcher of violets you used as an opener. They were my mom’s favorite flower and always bring memories of her. She’d have loved that sweet little bouquet.
