At Bedlam Farm, we celebrate Valentine's Week, as there are so many amazing women here to love. First off is my former girlfriend, of course, and I stopped at the Valley Artisan's Market in Cambridge, N.Y. to get cards for today, tomorrow, Monday and Tuesday. I especially loved Martha Starke's expressive papercards, made from flowers that she grows. (She can be e-mailed at firstname.lastname@example.org. Maria flipped over the first one.
I love women, and I love all the women here – Lenore, Frieda, Lulu, Fanny, Mother, Minnie (and we have not forgotten Rose) and the chickens. I will celebrate their existence all week, but only Maria is getting these very stylish and evocative cards. I will be hiding the cards all over the farmhouse and the Studio Barn for Maria to find.
