Welcome

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.

A Primitive Celebration

Welcome to another Tablescape Thursday hosted by
Susan at Between Naps On The Porch. Please be sure to
visit Susan and all the other great tablescapes you will
find there. Thanks Susan for hosting this party.
Once again this week we are on the deck. Just a little
Welcome for everyone. Seems there is always a rooster hanging out at my house. If you get a little chilly in the mountain air feel free to use
the blanket.
Maybe you would like to rock awhile and have a glass of sweet tea. We have a grapevine tree for a centerpiece and another rooster hanging out.
A simple and casual place setting. Festive place cards.
Red and blue serving pieces and of course red, white and
blue place settings. A few stick on stars for the glasses to
make them festive.
The tea picture belonged to my great grandmother and if
we run out of glasses we always have the mason jars.
Mr. primitive rooster.
A little outdoor lighting for the evening.
A festive window.
The chairs got a little color as well.
Three different layers of cloth. A desert table.
These plates belonged to my grandmother as well as
the candle, it's an oil candle. The red bowl and serving
pieces were gifts from a dear friend.
I hope you enjoyed our primitive celebration and will
visit again very soon. Please feel free to leave a comment
or suggestion. I would like to wish everyone a very happy
and safe Forth of July. See you Monday.
