ASHTON, né en mai🐾born May 2018
Ashton and his four siblings had a traumatic start and are quite shy with people at the moment, therefore they are receiving a lot of attention and TLC from us so that they learn to be confident with all humans. We’re making great progress with them.
Although Ashton is shy with strangers, he absolutely loves cuddling his foster mum! With her he is very purry and happy. So we are sure he will love you just as much.
Ashton is fully vaccinated, chipped and de-parasited. His adopter will be expected to have him sterilised when he is old enough.

ASHTON (m), née en mai 2018
Ashton et ses 4 frères et sœurs ont eu des débuts difficiles, et reçoivent une attention toute particulière et beaucoup d'amour, afin qu'ils puissent apprendre à faire confiance aux humains. Ils font de grands progrès.
Ashton est encore un peu timide avec les personnes qu'elle ne connait pas, mais il adore les câlins de maman Caroline ! Il ronronne et est un petit chat tout heureux. Nous sommes convaincus qu'il aimera tout autant la famille qui voudra lui donner sa chance.
Ashton est vacciné, pucé et déparasité. Il vous sera demandé de le faire stériliser une fois l'âge venu.

When I bought this small piece of oak leaf fabric some time ago, I knew I wanted to make it into a little autumnal something or other. Fast forward a few months, and the gorgeous autumn stitching box from @craftpod_ arrived, with beautiful threads for oak leaves and acorns. How perfect. I went out for a walk yesterday afternoon in the very bright sunshine to look for acorns. They had mostly been eaten already by squirrels, or whatever else eats acorns in the woods, but I managed to find a few, and stuffed them happily into my pockets.
🇵🇱 Wszystko się zmienia. Czas płynie nieubłaganie. Natura nie ma skrupułów, to co stare, niepotrzebne, to co już przejrzało lub czego potencjał został wykorzystany musi odpaść, zgnić i oddać to z czego zostało zrobione. Jesień przypomina o cyklu życia, o troskach, każe wspominać i pokazuje dość dosadnie że nic nie jest wieczne. -----
🇺🇲 Everything changes. Time flows inexorably. Nature has no scruples. What is old, unnecessary, what has already been reviewed or the potential have been used must fall, rot and give all of this what it was made of. Autumn reminds us about the cycle of life, of worries, makes us remember and shows quite bluntly that nothing is eternal.

you have so much
yet you are always hungry for more
the trick to being well fed is
you have to stop looking up
at everything you don't have
and look around everything you do... Where the satisfaction lives • Rupi Kaur
I finished these small silver Acorn studs just in time for Fall. It’s taken awhile for life to normalize after #hurricaneflorence but the kids are back in school, I’m working in the studio, and the temperature has finally dropped from the 80’s to the 60’s. It’s time for appreciating the beauty of today. I’ve always loved acorns and have always collected them. My oldest loves squirrels, so acorns are near to my heart. I don’t know why the beauty of a simple acorn captures my imagination, but it does. #acorn#acornearrings#silverstuds#etsy#etsysellersofinstagram#handmade#etsymetalteam#ilm#sarawestermark
Our woodland friends have been extremely generous this year. These acorns come from a hybrid shreve-live oak (Q. parvula var. shrevei x Q. agrifolia ) in our backyard. We’ve never seen a crop like this before and we’ve never processed this variety, but soon we’ll be playing with a flour for baked goods, pasta and more. Sign up for our “Art of Hospitality” workshop with @farmdiscovery if you’re interested in playing with us and learning how to make maple-acorn-pine nut muffins, among other wild and seasonal treats. .
Acorn flour is used in cuisines from Native North America to Korea and the Mediterranean. It’s been processed and cooked with by humans for tens of thousands of years.
We’re also gathering tan oak (N. densiflorus) acorns, some of which will be planted to encourage the growth of this threatened species on our property. Tan oaks have been ravaged by sudden oak death in CA forests. They are also weakened by fire suppression and the elimination of Indigenous land tending practices. For oak tending tips, consult your local Native fire scientist (we know a few in Northern CA). To avoid spreading sudden oak death, be careful with free wood chips/mulch that may contain infected oaks and/or CA bay laurel which is a vector for the disease. The chips, along with firewood and firewood harvesting done with contaminated tools, can spread sudden oak disease to nearby forests. Mindful landscaping is part of being a good guest and steward in your local ecosystem. Know where your wood products come from ✌🏼
All these little acorns started as just pinches of clay and a bit of craft.
Little Acorns that symbolize you can start small and grow into a Mighty Oak. 🌱🌳 We see growth in the smallest opportunities, the underdogs, the failures and setbacks. In our resilience we grow forward, taller, ever wiser and ever stronger.
We hope you join us on this journey as we plant our roots and reach our branches to grow our family. 🌳
Having participated over the weekend with the native tradition of processing and cooking acorns in community with elders, tribal citizens and the general public, I now have a renewed perspective on this coveted woodland resource. I am also happy to report that the mature coast live oak on our HalfAcreHomestead is a producer this season and I hope the critters carry off and distribute the abundance throughout the neighboring pastures for future generations.
