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.

Metamorphosis Monday

Welcome to Metamorphosis Monday
hosted by Susan at
Be sure to stop by Susan's and all
of today's participants for your treats,
before Halloween!!!!
First I would like to thank everyone
who visited and left comments on
the home tour, I appreciate each
and every one of them and loved
reading them.
I just have a couple little yard sale and
thrift store finds that have gone through
some changes in the last few week.
This little candle holder I got at a garage sale
a year or more ago. It was only .25 , was a
great size and had great lines, but the gold
wasn't working for me! So last week while
doing my tablescape I needed a large black
candle holder, so to storage I went!
And here she is!
The magic of black paint!!! Now my next little projects inspiration came from all those beautiful lamps I see out there in blogland. Susan has one in her den and I have seen several others while visiting other blogs. Have you ever seen these in the thrift stores or garage sales? Well I have plenty of times, now don't get me wrong I do love my kids and grand kids, but I',m not interested in any more nursery decorating, sooooo........... I grabbed this little baby up for .75, and the shade I already had as well as the yellow material to cover the shade. And here is what she looks like now!!!
I had the little rooster as well, a little white
paint to the lamp and rooster, and I think
I have a winner!
Now the little bear did not go to waste, Lola
and Copper were more than happy to have
another toy to lay around for me to pick up.
Thanks for visiting, I hope you stop by again,
very soon. Feel free to leave a comment,
suggestion or question. I love hearing
from you.
Bye For Now,
