happy to pass along – 2 new shops will be carrying my prints!

first, the very awesome and exciting young blood gallery and boutique of atlanta, georgia!


and second, the super cute and lovely domestica of des moines, iowa!


if you have a minute – please check these guys out! i'm so in love with both shops at the moment + the people behind them – and, if you're in the area please hop on in and find my work along with so many other incredable artists! seriously, the amount of talent in these 2 shops is ridiculous!
quite possibly the best stuff to be found on earth.
happy wednesday!!! xoxoxoxoxox



happy friday all! this fresh new friday brings us 2 new items up in the shop!

first, a big, bright print perfect for the summer kitchen– bless this: now only $20!

and second, love letters: only $20 as well – with your own custom color choice!


{for this last one i got inspired by the house down the road with their big german/pa dutch letter displayed outside their front door. however, this print is meant to be framed inside by the front door or even above the bed. (like i did here at home) but i could see hanging on the front door – oooo, i may try that and post the results!}

this past saturday, just down the road in bowers i found an engine/tractor fair and was so intrigued! well, was i glad i stopped by – it just reinforced my love for the decoration and design you can find with old dutchy items - even pumps, tractors, engines and tools...

here are some of my favorites from the day –

old belt engine - love that hand painted keller logo

even the tractor seats are beautiful!

this guy had an incredible collection under this glass case!

some of our favs –

button mold


"staple-less" stapler... see how it punched and tucked the paper!? fantastic!

but our crazy favorite was this...

a photographer's birdie!
it's hard to tell from this video but this little brass bird moves it's wings and beak when you blow the tube. it also has water in it to create the warbling sounds. so neat.

on down the line we found these – i guess lots o corn = lots o huskers!


then around the corner came this incredible steam engine!
check out the video to see it in motion...

take note: in the background you can hear the caller for the "tractor square dance".
yep, couples on tractors square dancing whilst riding them. talk about country bumpkin!

ok well, i think i'll tie this up nicely with my all time favorite tractor...

a good old allis chambers!
happy monday, everyone –
xoxoxoxoxox



wow, another illustrated poster invite – complete! i'm so in love with this one...
betty and chris are getting married aboard the columbia MV on cayuga lake. so, with hops and black eyed susies as their inspiration along with the obvious awesomeness of the boat – i had the best time making this and can't wait for them to hear the response from excited guests!



here's a little look into the linder homestead recently...
all my hard work and traveling really makes me appreciate my home lately!

kritter waiting for the excitement of stocking the pond with some trout...

the neighbor boy caught these trout down the road and had been keeping them in a weir from the run-off of the pond. we took bucket loads and tried our best to gently transport them –

oooo what a beautiful rainbow trout!

keegan choosing the best spots to drop them in...

here's hoping some will live long enough to spawn!
