Welcome

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.

The Decorating Has Started

I'm linking up to two great parties today,
Metamorphosis Monday at
and
So be sure to stop by both of these wonderful
sites for great inspiration.
I would like to say
"Thank You" to both of our
host for putting these events
together.
Well after taking a little break, I'm back and
going strong. The Christmas decorating has
started!
Remember seeing my front door dressed for
fall?
Now dressed for the Holidays!
I used two different types of pine and laurel
for the greenery, clear lights, silver ribbon
and ornaments.
Everything outside is decorated with only
clear lights, silvers and whites, using the
greenery as the backdrop.
The wreath is just grapevine with a huge
silver bow on it made from material I
found at Wal Mart several years ago.
At the end of the garland, I have a bed of
pine with a huge silver bow and packages
wrapped in silver wrapping paper and
and silver ribbon.
Large ornaments I found at the end of
Christmas last year at the Dollar Store for .50.
I painted them silver before putting them
away last year, so they were ready to go!
Silver ribbon also found on sale last year. The window boxes were also filled with pine and laurel, then boxes wrapped in silver placed inside each one. Once again I used silver ribbon. Sorry for the bad pictures, it was very hard to take them, it was either to bright or to dark. Arrangements in the lower windows. I used the fake spray on snow for a little drama. We have been really lucky this year only one day of snow just blowing around in the air, for the last two weeks we have had temps in the 50's and 60's. Great for Christmas decorating! Now remember my pond this fall??? All ready for Halloween.
Now ready to entertain at Christmas.
A sleigh full of presents.
All wrapped in pretty shiny paper.
Don't forget the silver bells.
More window decorations.
Thank you so much for stopping and visiting.
I hope you enjoyed yourself and will come back
again soon.
Please don't forget to let know what you think.
I love hearing from everyone.
Bye For Now,
Sandy
