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.

It's Beginning To Look Like Christmas!

It's Monday and time for
Metamorphosis Monday at
So be sure and make a stop at Susan's
for a peak at all the great inspiration,
you are sure find there.
It's been a little crazy here this week.
We lost all power Wednesday afternoon,
and shortly after lost most of our water
pressure. This was a two day event, in
December, not the best time of the year.
All due to a wind storm!
What made it even worse for me was the
fact that we had ordered a shiny new
black refrigerator! Now they delivered it
set it up, polished it before they left at
1:30 pm and the electricity was lost at 1:45 pm.
Now to say that I have been the brunt of allot
of jokes from my friends is an understatement.
But all is well now! I almost lost it though, when
I didn't get to post for Tablescape Thursday!
So onto the Christmas metamorphosis of the
dining room.
This is what it looked like through the fall.
Now, dressed for Christmas.
I carried the fruit theme into my Christmas
decorating using gold and burgundy.
A little Asian chest spilling over with fruit.
A simple plate rack with large gold trays,
gold and burgundy topiary and a grapevine
wreath with gold fruit.
I didn't use a Christmas tree in this room this
year. Instead I did something I had saw in
a hotel lobby. I used clear mini light on my
ficus trees, layered pine cones around the tree,
added gold poinsettias, burgundy and gold ribbon
and gold Christmas tree ornaments.
My Santa in a antique chair.
I hope you enjoyed your visit, and come back
tomorrow for more Christmas decorating at
Thoughts From Over The Rainbow, I'll
be there, providing I have electricity!
I have to go now I have missed four days of
ideals and eye candy.
Bye For Now,
Sandy
