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.

Celebrating Sunflowers

It's Thursday and Tablescape time.
Be sure to stop by Between Naps On The Porch
and visit Susan and all the other participants
in today's event.
Today we are eating downstairs and will be enjoying
lots of sunflowers.
Just a little peak at the table with the center piece.
I used a wicker basket then added pine cones to the
bottom to show through the flowers just to add a
little more fall color and texture.
A view of the table in candle light. I used gold candles in hurricane shades and some little clear glass candle holders. I used extra bread plates to set the candle and globe on to allow the tablescape to blend better.
Not a good picture, the lighting today would not
cooperate at all., no matter what I did.
I used gold place mats and gold flatware.
The bread plate and the cup are old diner dishware.
I'm using the cup for soup tonight.
This little gold bowl for salad.
I have had these plates for a long time, I think they may
have come from an estate sale
The napkin is just a gold and white dish towel.
These little glasses were also a estate sale find, I have
six. I paid like .50 each.
I have used two glasses today, this one also has a brown
tint, with wheat on the sides.
The mantle also got a little gold and sunflower action.
Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed your stay.
Visit again soon and leave a comment, suggestion
or question. I love hearing from you.
Bye for now,
