    worth every mile My husband was afraid I would be disappointed because of my high expectations Now he is excited to get home and build a retreat one tent such as this on our property Thanks MJ and all Bessie Dick June 20 2009 Dear MaryJane What an awesome experience all the atmosphere of camping but the comfort of a 5 star hotel We had a great time and enjoyed every aspect of the experience The tub campfire hot chocolate and s mores were wonderful Thanks for the tan and the nice time Mare and Jerem Hapreis June 16 2009 MaryJane and crew What a wonderful place this is Having grown up on a big farm in the Spangle Waverly Fairfield area it was just like coming home It was a real treat to be with my two younger sisters and niece Marci Miller A memory I shall treasure forever thank you Farming is basically the same but certainly has been taken away by modernization and government Keep up your ideas and ongoing farming so our grandchildren can know of their roots You are a true pioneer woman in heart and spirit Blessings to you From a cherry orchardist Patricia Fergus 601 May 20 21 2009 My friend Sherry booked our two days here I didn t know a thing about the place I am no camper So when we arrived and was told let me show you to your tent I was 1 suspicious 2 slightly alarmed and 3 a little worried Imagine my surprise to find a little piece of Paradise here Now this is the way to camp I totally want to start my own campground back home in the hills of western Massachusetts Can t wait to get back to my easel to paint some of these gorgeous surroundings Meanwhile I am certainly enjoying my stay Trish LaFrenure June 25 2007 What an unexpected treat We knew it would be great but had no idea how wonderful our two days would be Exploring the farm cooking lazing about cozy in our tent We made memories of an unforgettable mother daughter weekend Next time we ll bring the family Pam mother June 13 15 2007 What a beautiful time Chris and I had Enchanted is a good word to describe our time here This was our 9th anniversary left the two little girls at home with the grandparents and retreated to reconnect with each other and God The breakfasts were incredible April is an amazing cook and great to talk with as was Nick We hiked the ridge saw the waterfalls at Elk Creek and the giant Cedar tree The best thing was seeing the moose in your pond our first morning and crawling on our bellies as close as we could to it Being here has awakened again my desire to live close to the earth in order to feel the deep beauty of God The honeymoon suite rocked A toast to you all Love Rebekah Chris Garvin July 12 13 2007 Being persuaded by a loving possibly eccentric wife I reluctantly agreed to these two days with MaryJane whom I dubbed as non existent What a pleasant surprise to find her real and more in life than described in publicity we reviewed This has been a heart changing experience Thank you for making our experience a part of your life and including us in the workday attitudes so pleasantly expressed by all your staff Sincerely Kay Kathleen Norris P S We ll be back May 11 14 2007 The perfect mix of luxury and camping The tent was wonderful the perfect place to sleep lulled into slumber by the calls of wild turkeys and howls of coyotes awakened by more varieties of bird calls than I could identify The breakfasts were wonderful Thank you so much Scott Connie Hoover Sunday Earth Day April 22nd 2007 It is actually now Monday morning and we just watched two geese land in the pond below us We sit drinking coffee outside on a glorious sunny day with a cool breeze blowing through the neighboring pines Aly and I were married yesterday afternoon in the Palouse Ice Rink surrounded by 300 or so of our closest family and friends The bike ride out here from town was refreshing and warming as we arrived around midnight through the fog on Paradise Ridge MaryJane thank you so much for your hospitality and gift We just finished an amazing breakfast prepared by April and delivered magically as if by an elf It is so nice to sit surrounded by the ninebark and chokecherries It is such a gift to be spoiled with such love kindness and grace It is the perfect place for us to be right now The food is so amazingly yummy The two geese are now wondering around upon the field murching on things that they find I think they are inspiring Aly and I to go for our own little walk around the farm The ridge is calling us to join it Tom Aly Lamar of the Palouse Clearwater Environmental Institute July 4 2006 From Mississippi to Idaho we came and Idaho will stay in my for a long long time What a charming place inspiring beyond words Thank you for opening your heart and home to us Leslie Ballard Farm Fair 2006 Friends It has been an honor to briefly dwell in a spirit of goodness and sacred beauty The nurturing and preservation of the natural world something you do so well celebrates the soul and elevates us all to focus on the higher good I can think of no better cathedral in which to express my humility and awe as I bask in creation the dawn brought the songbirds and a rooster the setting sun reminded me to rejoice in the day and rest for one anew the myriad of people brought together in utter inspiration and expression Grandeur isn t something typically so approachable and

    in repurposed ticking I buy old feather beds Wilma explains I empty the feathers into garbage bags then I wash the covers through a wringer washer with lots of bleach three times before they ever go into an automatic washing machine or dryer After that I iron the material cut it up make it into pillows and stuff them with feathers It used to be easy for Wilma to find feather beds close to home But she has been making pillows this way since 1984 and now uses more than 200 feather beds a year So she has to seek them farther afield I have people from here to Cincinnati buying them for me she says And when I can t find enough featherbeds to keep up with demand I buy new pillows for the feathers Then I put those feathers into old ticking from materials I find at antique shows New ticking can be purchased from stores and catalogs but Wilma finds it less tightly woven than vintage ticking And that tight weave keeps the feathers from working out through the cloth What Wilma s pillows look like depends on what old ticking she currently has on hand Blue and white is pretty common she says Red and white you can t hardly find it at all anymore But there are many pretty fabrics still available And once filled and plumped Wilma s pillows are dressed in old fashioned style One may boast a tie on cover of red plaid ticking The next one is tucked into crisp white linen with a fancy lace edge A third is encased with ivory linen with an original verse embroidered on one side and an old fashioned design on the other All are unique and designed to bring memories of simpler times Wilma draws some of her pattern ideas from a turn of the century book of patterns But most of my embroidery prose I just make up she says Like the Good Morning Good Night verse It s just whatever runs through my head I ll make pillows with that embroidered on them And if they sell good I ll make some more Even the sewing machines Wilma uses have led previous lives I have 17 sewing machines Wilma says and when I did the first big order for MaryJane I worked them so hard I almost burned them up As a child Wilma learned to sew on a treadle sewing machine Sterling bought her first electric machine in 1963 for 50 She now owns a new state of the art machine and a serger But what she likes for her projects are the old Sears and Singer machines from the 1950s and 60s They re built sturdier and will take the heavier fabric she explains And the sewing I do is supposed to look like the sewing people used to do The old machines have that stitch So I always use those old machines It s what Wilma grew up
