Happy Easter from Vermont Woods Studios

I love Jacquie Lawsons’s electronic greeting cards.  This one reminds me of our property at Stonehurst which we’re transforming into a sustainable furniture showroom and nature center.  We have a brook that looks just like this and it too is starting to come alive with Spring.

We are wishing all of our customers and friends the peace of Passover, the joy of Easter and the happiness of Spring.  From all your pals at Vermont Woods Studios:  we send warm greetings from the Green Mountain State!

Happy Easter From Vermont

April 7th, 2012 by Peggy Farabaugh

Happy Easter from all of us at Vermont Woods Studios!


I thought I'd share a few scenes from Vermont's pastoral landscape this Spring.  We've got all the signs of Easter: 


Lambs at The Billings Farm








Crocuses at the Vermont Wildflower Farm











One week old baby horses at Malhana Farm.














bunnies, chicks… you name it  (thanks to for this photo)



And of course, many local churches (this one is St Michael's Roman Catholic Church in Brattleboro) where you can participate in the all of the religious traditions and spirituality of Easter. 


Maybe you should jump in the car right now and buzz up to Vermont for Easter?  Our Inn owners have a cozy place for you to take respite.



Spring Ahead with All Weather Recycled Plastic Outdoor Furniture

While certainly not our toughest winter here in Vermont this year, tomorrows predicted high temperature nearing 60 degrees is welcomed by many up in these parts. Also welcomed by many is moving the clock forward this Sunday.

It seems a lot of us are ready for more daylight time, especially after work. Nice to get home after a long day at work and be able to walk the dog while still light out or pace about the yard and start thinking about this summer’s garden or other outdoor projects. Or maybe just sit outside, relax and unwind?

And hopefully soon it will be time to break out the old lawn & garden furniture and start the season of relaxing, unwinding, and dining outside. So it seems like this would be a good weekend to take stock of your outdoor furniture. And hopefully your outdoor furnishings are up for another season? However if you are faced with the prospect of scraping, sanding, and refinishing your outdoor furniture and dread the whole time-consuming, messy process– then this would be a great time to consider an all weather outdoor furniture alternative.

The past few years have seen a big rise in the popularity of recycled plastic outdoor furniture. And Polywood, an American manufacturer of outdoor furnishings is one of the best all weather, maintenance free options available. Just as sturdy and heavy (won’t blow away) as traditional wood outdoor furniture without the upkeep hassle. Built using colored Poly Lumber (which is made from recycled plastic bottles) this material is virtually indestructible. Poly Wood will not splinter, crack, or rot and it is highly fade resistant. This is outdoor furniture you could use year after year and spend time using it, and not time up keeping it. After all, isn’t outdoor furniture intended to relax in and enjoy time outside and not become another seasonal maintenance project?
