A Knitter’s HomeLife

Scot and Me

After a lot of requests……here are some photos of my Home Life in Ojai, California taken by my friend Marita……

Home starts with Scot and the little homestead we are creating, “Olson’s Sunny Meadows”, a merging of our last names……his Olson and mine Solvang which  means Sunny Meadow in Norwegian. I am straight from Norway and he is of Norwegian descent. We’re always out in the garden and working the land every spare moment we have!


The front of our little cottage.

Front Door

Everybody is Welcome!


Our Scarecrows who change outfits according to seasons or events throughout the year. This is their Spring outfit.

Marita and Chickens

This is what happens if you stop by for breakfast on our front porch.  We all Share!

Ducks and Mirror

Our Ducks Quackers and Quackelina just can’t get enough of themselves, each other……and our vegetable plants!

Mjau Mjau

Beautiful Mjau Mjau, our 21 year old cat who adopted us after being feral for 17 years.

The Riverbottom is our front yard……literally! See all “our” cows?:-)


A sneak peek into our haven of a vegetable garden……more to be revealed!

Scot Barbequing

Scot is a master at smoking meat and barbequing anything. Here he is smoking and barbequing Portobello Mushrooms.


Our Artichokes taste like lobster dipped in Butter……LOVE!
