Happy Sunday and welcome to our Sunday favorites. For those of you new here, every Sunday I join my pals Annie at Most Lovely Things, and Mary Ann of Classic Casual Home and we showcase some of our favorite things that caught our eyes in the past week. I am in Indiana (left my laptop on my kitchen counter), for my husband’s 50th high school reunion. I thought it would be fun to feature all things Indiana today. My husband and I hail from a small town in Indiana called Monticello. We both grew up on beautiful Lake Freeman there. We have fond memories from that time, and we try to get back when we can. Let’s take a look at Back Home Again in Indiana.
MY COUSINS BEAUTIFUL INDIANA GARDEN
We come from a long line of gardeners. My Aunt Dodo had a fabulous vegetable garden, my dad raised a mean crop of tomatoes and vegetables, and my Aunt Betty (who lived on one of the family farms) in Indiana had and amazing garden. Her daughter (my cousin Janet), has carried on that tradition, and has a gorgeous garden on Lake Shafer (recently featured on a local garden tour). We visited yesterday and she allowed me to snap these photos. Note the door on Janet’s She Shed. Janet salvaged it from the farmhouse that was built by our grandfather in 1954 (the door remained from the original farmhouse that was built in the late l800’s ). Janet says she “went in and out of that door thousands of times growing up”
THE BARN AT SIOUXMONTI
Janet’s son and JT and his wife Hannah purchased the family homestead on the old farm. The young couple (with the help of mom Janet) transformed the original barn into a charming wedding venue. If you are planning a wedding in Indiana, you might want to follow The Barn at Sioux Monti on Instagram.You can also check out their website The Barn at Sioux Monti here.
I started following Hoosier Sister on Instagram. The two sisters do shows and pop up shops in the Indy area and beyond. “Born and raised in Indiana, Gretchen and Heidi are sisters with a love for all things vintage. In 2012 they brought their knack for picking just the right pieces, their style in putting it all together, and their fun-loving spirit to Hoosier Sister. The Hoosier Sisters source unique vintage finds from around the country, as well as candles and other unique pieces to accent your home decor. Find more information about us and our show schedule here on our website, Facebook, and Instagram”.
We are off to the airport to head home but we will be meeting my lifelong friend and her husband, and Steve’s college roommate for lunch at Traders Point Creamery. I will post more in my Instagram stories about that.
TRADERS POINT CREAMERY
“Traders Point Creamery is an organic, 100% grassfed dairy farm and artisan creamery in Zionsville, Indiana, owned by the Kunz family. As the first USDA-certified organic dairy farm in Indiana, we believe in “nourishing the land that nourishes us all.” Since 2003, we have blended tradition and innovation to craft the purest and most wholesome artisan dairy products by working in harmony with nature’s design. We are committed to working with farmers and consumers for a flourishing community of sustainable food production to bring you the best in nourishing, 100% grassfed dairy”.
THE REUNION BAND
Steve’s class was filled with a group of talented musicians. A few of them get together and play at the reunions every five years. They are actually quite good. Our friend George, an attorney (who is aol in this photo) plays the drums, my friend Pam (who comments often on the blog) lends her beautiful voice to the group. Gary Jeffries (who is actually a professional) sings and plays the guitar) is always so kind and accommodating to the amateurs. They always make the evening full of fun.
