Harvest Thyme Homestead has grown out of a love for the simpler times of life. Its roots begin in a belief in one's self and that in time, the harvest of one's hard work will create a place called home.....with a few sheep, goats, chickens, cats, dogs, 2 miniature horses, & 3 alpacas added in for good company & fiber.

A Virtual Fall Trip to Vermont!
With autumn making its presence in the air, I thought today I would take a virtual tour of my Fall trip to Vermont last October.
My parents & I stayed at the ArlingtonInn in Arlington. This picture captures only a small portion of the beauty of the Inn. The room we had is the one with the porch & chair on it. Because we were there during peak fall foliage, it was expensive......$275 a night but you know it was so worth it & it was a gift for my mom & dad. There is a beautiful garden atrium/breakfast area off the back of the house also. We stayed there for 2 wonderful days! This was a beautiful New England Church we saw along the Battenkill River area.
I fell in love with Bennington Pottery!! They carry beautiful clay pottery. The inside of the story is so unique & there are so many awesome pieces to choose from.
This was a wagon display outside the store.......such a festive autumn creation!
These are some of the Bennington Pottery pieces I came home with. I am hoping to add to the collection with plates & cups, slowly becasue it is a tad expensive. My dad made the shelf to hold my new collection & the wool sheep are compliments from my mom! My dad has a wood shop at his house & makes some beautiful pieces of furniture.
One of the many covered bridges Vermont is famous for!
This was one of the mountain river passes we found....I wish I had an audio to let you hear the beauty of the whole experience.
We got to visit the home of Robert Todd Lincoln......I have so many pictures of the place but I thought this one captured the grandeur of the house & gardens the best!
The day we went driving around there was a hazy that covered many of Green Mountains & I just could not capture the awesome display of colors falls but I tried my best. I still think all my animals & I would look good with a cute little farm house & some barns nestled right in the valley of this picture!
Next summer my parents & I are planning to take a trip back up to Vermont.
