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 Unexpected

It's Thursday and tablescape time.
A huge "Thank You" to Susan at
for hosting this event.
Be sure to stop by Susan's and all
of today's participants for some
wonderful inspiration.
Today's tablescape is unexpected.
Well the Holiday season is upon us and the
madness has began.
Soon the decorating, shopping, baking
and parties will start and we will find it
hard to find a minute to breath.
But before all that madness starts, take
a minute, reflect on this past year.
Think about a special friend that has
been there for you, or maybe that has
been through a rough time. Call up
that friend, for lunch, and when they arrive,
The Unexpected is waiting on them.
A special Thanksgiving lunch!
I have used my pink depression glass today
with Thanksgiving Plates.. I can see all the
shocked faces out there!!!!
The turkey plates I'm using I found at
TJ Maxx, I picked one color from the
plates, which was pink for my unexpected!
My depression glass came from
antique stores, yard sales, estate sales
and some from family members.
I used a pink antique quilt with an
overlay of pink fabric for the table cloth.
The little dish holding the candle belonged to my Great Grandmother and to my knowledge is the only piece of her "Sunday" dishes still in existence. Crystal salt and pepper shakers.
The glasses came from a yard sale years ago.
The desert cups came from an estate sale.
These little bowls as well as the small plates
under came from my husbands family.
Here where the pink came from!!!
I made the pink beaded napkin rings.
The flat ware has been tucked down into
the napkins.
A little wine with lunch!
A final look before we eat!
Well I hope you enjoyed lunch and will
visit again soon. Don't forget to let me
know what you think. I love hearing
from you.
Bye For Now,
