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.

Heirloom Party

What fun this party will be, getting to see
all the heirlooms that are out there in blog land.
A BIG Thank You to Marie at Emma Calls Me Mama
For hosting this party, be sure to visit all the party
people for some wonderful eye candy.
As everyone knows who has visited my blog I am
a nut for antiques and heirlooms, even if they are
not my family heirlooms. I just look at this way I'm
just caring for them until someone else has to take
over the job.
So here we go with a few of my true family heirlooms.
My Grandfathers Bible.
Every morning before anyone got up, he would make
himself a cup of coffee, go to his little study and
quietly read the bible. It's all tattered and torn now
but worth a million dollars to me.
This is a quilt that belonged to my Great Grandmother. Also very worn, but precious to me. You can see all the scrapes of material she used. They were farmers and very poor, but nothing went to waste. An oil lamp also belong to my Great Grandmother. And last, this pump organ belonged to DH Grandmother.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your visit.
Be sure to visit all the other participants in today's party.

See everyone Monday!!
Have a Blessed and Safe weekend.
Bye for now!!
