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.

A Bit Unusual

Time to get out the dishes and start playing.
Head over to Susan's at
to see all the beautiful tablescapes waiting
there.
My tablescape this week is A Bit Unusual.
No girlie stuff here this week.
It's a manly kind of table.
My inspiration for this table came from this
salad plate. I found these last Fall, on
clearance.
My place setting, the flatware is tucked in the napkin, napkin ring is a mans watch. Three belonged to DH and the forth to my Father. Dinner will consist of a salad and chili. A simple centerpiece.
This card box was a gift from my dear
friend that I spoke of last week. It belonged
to her husband and had been given to him
as a gift, after a friend passed away. The note from the insurance company,
notifying him, he would receive the box.
My elegant candle holders, courtesy
of DH, a friend gave these to him.
I hope you enjoyed your visit.
As you can tell by the placement of the
cards, I know nothing about playing cards
other than old maid and go fish. But that's
why Thursday's are so much fun, we get to
pretend. Thanks again Susan!
Everyone have a safe and blessed weekend.
Bye For Now,
