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.

Breakfast For One

It's time for part II of Let There Be White.
Be sure to visit Cuisine Kathleen and all
the other participants for some
beautiful tablescapes.
You won't be disappointed.
My contribution today is really short and sweet.
I did Breakfast For One in my white garden.
I started working on this little spot when we
bought the house four years ago.
Most of the plants were here I just kept dividing
and transplanting them for the effect I wanted.
You can feel the peacefulness when you walk into this little outside room. Just find yourself a place to sit so we can relax and start the day free of stress. Are you relaxed?
My centerpiece is a thrifty find for .50, I think it was
some awful gold color, nothing white paint didn't fix.
The little bird candle holder was a garage sale find
I purchased three of them for $1.00. My table wasn't
large enough for them all. I have a little creamer on
the table that also has grapes on it.
I used white fern under my plate for more texture.
I have used a few silver accent pieces on the table, the
napkin ring and if you notice the glass with the milk in
it has silver around the top, as well as the coffee cup.
I have a plain cotton napkin and my trusty Dollar Store
flatware with the white handles. I used a large iron stone
plate for my charger and a salad plate to hold the toast
and oatmeal.
Soon the day will have to start, the activities will
begin. So relish the quiet time.
Hear the birds?
Smell the roses and maybe a little mint.
Hear the water in the pond?
Well it's time to go, I do hope you enjoyed our quiet time
in my little white garden. Please come back and visit
soon. Everyone have a great week.
