  • Our buddies @fernworks and @killaspro, bringing their weirdo finest to Halloween!
  • The view off the kitchen, out onto our patio, of the fire ring and the canary yellow-hued leaves of the ginkgo beyond. We wait for that tree to turn color and gently drop its leaves all year. A sudden, early frost last October caused all of the leaves to drop overnight, while still green. This year, we got the golden ticket. Proof positive that some things truly are worth the wait. Happy All Souls Eve!

  • For today's #tbt, I'm sharing an image of the altar @shelterprotectsyou and @sheltercollective built on our property for their wedding here last month. Such a beautiful, memorable day that was, filling our little forested cove with happy juju for weeks. Love watching the scene shift as the foliage changes.
  • Felt a shift in the air today, this afternoon in particular. The veil is getting thin. You feeling it, too?
  • SO much love for @forvillagers and her heavenly homesteading/hearth-tending supply store in West Asheville. Stopped in today for a bag of organic chicken feed and to see what's new in the shop. I'll be teaching a

“Home Grown” Love

Issue No. 6 Trailer from Anthology Magazine on Vimeo.

Our little homestead is featured in the new issue of Anthology magazine! Editor Anh-Minh Le writes so beautifully about our place and what we’re up to out here in her piece titled Home Grown. I’m so excited by this, as I just adore the publication. Photographer Jen Siska visited us this past October for a fun-filled afternoon of photo-taking. I’m super pleased with what she came up with.

Anthology is available domestically and internationally at these fine retailers, as well as online at Anthropologie and at West Elm stores. Check it out. You’ll be so glad you did!

  • What an adorable video! And even better — I have the issue sitting on my coffee table right now! I picked it up yesterday but hadn't had the chance to open it yet. I'm going to get to that straightaways.

    That's fantastic, Ashley. I've been meaning to tell you how I've been noticing your books everywhere I go lately, including on a table in a coffeeshop in the mountains of northern Georgia. You are everywhere!

    Congrats and I'm looking forward to reading this article.

    Ashley! Congrats on the Anthology feature! We have a tiny lil feature in an upcoming issue (maybe the same one?!) AND I didn't realize you're the one that made all those lovely books I see around town. We moved here to Asheville from Vermont last year and way into it. Hope to cross paths soon!
