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 Very Red Christmas

It's time for another Christmas In July Tablescape.
Please be sure to stop by Playing with Dishes, for some
Pre Holiday decorating ideals.
A night scene of my table. As you can see I just gathered some pine from the yard added a few pinecones I had handy as well as a few lights. I used the bow planter For the top of my make believe Christmas tree. Then I used ribbon from the top of the center piece to the chargers to make it look a though they were hanging. The red you see in the pine is actually individual dressing dispensers with red tops ( I forgot to take a picture of them sitting out, pressure from the teenager in the house to get this off the table before her friends saw Christmas dishes on our table in July). I did cheat a little I am using the same green tablecloth from tablescape Thursday with a red cloth on top and the same silverware. The chargers are from Hobby Lobby and I used the cut crystal dishes again. Two red napkins and two green napkins with gold napkin rings. The little bow plate is a dollar store plate I bought several years ago. The glasses are from Wal Mart.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend and I will
see everyone Monday.
