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 Rainy Summer Evening In The Kitchen

Well it's raining and very chilly here again this evening.
Everyone is doing their own thing, even the dogs are napping.
The kitchen is clean and I am just snapping pictures.
This is the view as you walk in my back door, or if you
look to your right you see a mud room and powder room.
I have a center island that we use more than anything
with a lighted pot rack above overloaded with copper.
My breakfast area is at the far end. When the previous
owners renovated they took the old kitchen and dining
room and made this large kitchen. A new dining room
was then added as well as another master suite, bathroom,
dressing room and walk in closet. I have done very little
to the kitchen since moving in other than adding the
pot rack and new lighting
The home office. You can see part of the mud room in this picture.
Mr. Rooster always on guard.
The mirror is another Charleston find, the same estate
sale that the desert cups in my All Grown Up Christmas
came from. And yes you are correct the little table holding
the lamps is an antique wooden ironing board.
I use two chairs at this table and a bench. The top of this
table is made from old barn boards. I used this table at our
old house, we actually made counter tops for the kitchen of
the barn boards, then used a waterproof coating to seal them,
the same stuff they use on wooden boats.
I did have glass put in this cabinet, its sits in the corner
before you go into my foyer. Then I added the little
grape knobs and light. A great place to keep allot of my
blue dishes. Well thanks for visiting and feel free to leave
comment, suggestion or ask a question. See everyone at
Susan's Thursday.
