We have a lot of stories to tell. Day to day, we do many things. Fun, interesting things, with smart, hardworking and creative collaborators. We’ve been encouraged to tell these stories by our advisers. But it is hard to make time to do. Instagram, while not designed for blogging per se, has provided a simple platform for us to share these stories on the run.

Informal, fun, at times beautiful and sometimes dirty (our work is often both) this log shares what we do, day to day. This feed is a fun way to get to know us, our work, our proclivities… what makes us tick. Sometimes a few pictures or drawings and a few sentences tell a big story. Sometimes Ben gets the bit between his teeth and runs out a whole page. It is admittedly an unconventional way to go about a blog, but one that seems to fit for the moment. Enjoy!

Instagram post 2131557675048180970_5668441748 Recognize this handsome devil? Dana made a bench in honor of friend, neighbor and Fair Director Matt Smith for the dedication of The Cottage in his memory this fall. That’s Matt’s son Andy sitting on Dana’s bench made from good ol water sawn Garland Mill pine. Andy was home from Keene St where he’s studying to be a history teacher. Matt’s sister Connie sent us the picture and a nice note. In the PS she lamented the fact that she wasn’t able to get to Barb to sit. Presumably on Matt’s bench. For those of us who know and love Barb ... she doesn’t “sit” much anywhere so we weren’t offended. :) #garlandmill #lancasterfairnh
