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.

Simply Lunch

Well it's Thursday and tablescape time.
Be sure to stop by Susan's at
and all of today's participants
for wonderful inspiration.
Now lets go to "Simply Lunch".
My contribution this week is a simple one.
I have been on the go all week with three
Cross Country meets, so I am having some
"me time".
I am having lunch in my living, music, library
all rolled into one room. It's a very peaceful room,
no TV, just books and over sized leather furniture
to sink into.
I'm eating at my library table turned desk just for
my "me time".
I used a orange piece of material over the table, just folded the edges under, no sew, then I added a small green fringed pillow cover over that as a substitute for the place mat. My theme is jack-o-lanterns, and copper. One source of candle light from a orange candle in a hurricane globe. I have some old post cards to look at while eating. I have had the salt and pepper shakers for more than ten years, I think maybe a Wal Mart find. A little pumpkin mug for some green tea, a yard sale find years ago, I think I have two of them. Looks like a nice place to visit.
This is a copper Turkish coffee pot holding the dressing. I have four of them.
A EBay find.
My flatware is inside the napkin tied with a black
velvet ribbon. It's just everyday flatware, the napkin
is from a thrift store years ago.
The salad plate is from a garage sale a couple of years
ago, I got a whole box of decorations for I think $5.00.

Time to eat!!!
I hope you enjoyed lunch! Please don't forget to
leave a comment, suggestion or question.
I love hearing from everyone. Bye For Now,
