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.

Sweet Dreams

It's Party Time!
A big "Thank You" to
and
Diane at "A Picture Is Worth A 1,000 Words" for hosting both of these amazing events.
As you can see I am participating in two events
today. So be sure to make a stop at
Grits and Glamour to see all the beautiful
tabletops waiting for you there and there will
be more treasures to be found at
A Picture Is Worth A 1,000 Words.
Today we are going to visit my guestroom.
We always hear that we should have all the
comforts of home, to make our guest feel
welcomed and relaxed.
So lets see what my guest may find!
I have rather a large mirror just sitting on this
small dresser, this mirror belonged to my
Grandmother. I remember her using this mirror
in her bathroom to put on her makeup. The lamp
was a yard sale find last summer, I have two of
them and have moved them several times, as
my decorating mood has changed, in this long
cold winter.
This tray is also a yard sale find, I loved it, and it's the perfect size. So now lets take a look and see what's on it! We have fresh water and a drinking glass. Several new magazines tied with a little black ribbon, a nice selection of body lotions and hand creams in a old silver bowl, (patina and all). Tissues and roses (silk, it's 10 degrees outside) in another piece of silver.
Not interested in magazines, how about a
book?
Well sleep tight and I will see everyone
Thursday for, Tablescape Thursday.
Don't forget to visit everyone and leave lots
of comments.
Thanks for stopping by.
Bye for now,
