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.

Warm and Cozy

Hop on over to
to see all of today's wonderful creations.
Lets just sit down and have a simple
warm and cozy dinner.
On a night like this what else can you do? Make a little comfort food and have dinner by the fire. I used my library table to set a table for two, covered the chairs with white chair covers, used a large white table cloth for the library table, then ran a fabric remnant I have saved for years across the table to define my place settings. The remnant has the same color pallet as the china I am using. My gold chargers, you have seen many times. A black coffee server, the amber glasses I have used before.
I used gold flatware, handmade gold wool
napkin rings, white napkins and lunch plates
rather than a large dinner plate. Have to do
better after the Holidays on the serving size!
This is a set of china I found at a garage sale,
the last one I went to last year, a place setting
for six. No special marking, but I did like
the colors used in the pattern. I just thought it
looked like a fall and winter pattern.
A view just before dark.
OK, did you see my blooper?
I forgot to move my candle sniffer.
I realized it once I had all my picture loaded.
I was not going back for a redo, had my lighting
somewhat descent for once, but we all know
it shouldn't be there.
I hope you enjoyed your visit.
Don't forget to let me know what you think.
Bye For Now,
