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.

Happy Birthday

It's Thursday and that means Tablescape Thursday.
Be sure to hop over to Susan's at
Between Naps On The Porch for a look at her magical
creation and then visit with all the others that are
joining in today's event.
Today I would like to show you the tablescape I did for
a dear friend of mine.
You see it was her Birthday and she was feeling a little
down in the dumps. I won't mention the number,
although I will never see that small number again,
30 for me was a bad day, and when 50 rolled around
I was feeling better about life than I had for years. I
think that I had put allot of things in the place they
should be. Some things in life just aren't worth
worrying about.
So lets start the Party!!!
We had a pink and black party.
I used an antique pink quilt for the tablecloth, pink
balloons and candles.
I have used black place mats with black and white stripped napkins, a TJ Maxx find. Napkin rings are pink beaded. The guest of honors party hat.
Lots of girlie pink candle light.
Pink rose petals.
This was just a busy table.
Our place cards were these little banks that look like
purses, I used two black and two pink.
A full view of the place setting, pale pink wine glasses,
flatware by Gibson. Pink beaded charms on the glasses.
My standby black dishes, with a treat in the middle.
A TJ Maxx find.
This is so true!!!
A final look before we eat.
Smile Kim, It's not that bad and I haven't told that
small magical number! I know your looking!!!!
Ready to eat?????
Comfort food for a cool night.
Creamy potato soup, corn muffins, cheese ball, fresh
baked pear mini tarts and of course coffee or tea.
Well I hope you enjoyed our little Birthday Party.
I know your reading this Kim, so once again Happy Birthday.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you take a minute to leave a
comment, suggestion or question.
I'll see everyone at "The Cloche Party" Friday.
Bye for now,
