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.

Apple Harvest Time

Welcome to another Tablescape Thursday
hosted by Susan at Between Naps On The Porch.
Come join me today for a dinner in the kitchen.
Our menu is a simple one just chicken pot pie and
apple cobbler with ice cream.
Lots of red and green to carry out my simple apple
harvest table. I'm now using my farm house table
in the kitchen and have moved my smaller table
We have cider if you like.
A view from above.
The center piece is just two swags of apples that I had
in my stash of greenery.
I used two copper colanders to make my arrangement,
just stacking the two.
I have layered my serving bowls in copper pots
then set them on red trays.
Apple candles.
A wooden antique rolling pin and spoon.
Vintage bottles as salt and pepper shakers.
Our place setting consist of a red bowl for our cobbler and
ice cream and our plate for our chicken pot pie. I have
used red dishtowels once again as napkins the flatware
is very simple with red handles. There are no chargers
or place mats, just pieces of green flowered material
going across the table to define the place settings. The
tablecloth is red. Remember I said simple dinner.
A nice BIG napkin for the comfort food!
I have had these plates for some time now, I'm not
sure where I even got them.
The glasses are some that belonged to my Mother.
I used little green nut dishes under the glasses and some
of the candles, just for drama. Another little apple candle.
As night falls.
As the candles glow.
Are you ready to eat?
Thanks for joining me for dinner tonight.
I hope you enjoyed your stay.
