Welcome to our old farmhouse. Over the past year I have learned so much history of this house and the people who lived here. Ninety six years of love, loss, hopes and dreams. Preservation continues and there is always a repair to be done. We are trying to be purest in our preservation as much as we possibly can. I hope you follow along and each week I will try to give you a little history of the house as well as the first owners of the house. I've been lucky enough to find a journal from a Granddaughter who talks about the house as well as her Grandparents. So come follow along and learn about this old house as well as the occupants, old and new.

An 80's Makeover

Be sure to stop by Susan's at Between Naps On The Porch
for Metamorphosis Monday and Rhoda at Southern Hospitality
for some great ideals, thank you both for hosting these
Now really, can we say ugly?? I remember seeing these
things in every one's house in the 80's. But as I remember
they looked good. Remember the blue and mauve?
This was my $1.00 find at the thrift store this week.
Now trust me, I really thought about bringing this
home! But a little black paint later.
Not to bad, works well for a summer
fireplace screen in my library/music room. It lets just
enough of the candle light shine through.
I found two of these, they were .25 each at the thrift store. I forgot to take a before picture, but really all I did was give them a light coat of black paint, clean the globes and add a couple candles. I will be using them in my family room which I hope to show you in a couple of weeks, its getting a little face lift. Thanks everyone for stopping by, Please don't forget to leave a comment or suggestion.
