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 Desk Redo

Thanks Marty for hosting today's event.
Be sure to make a stop at
"A Stroll Thru Life" to visit with Marty and all of today's
talented party people.
I did a little change to my Grandmothers
antique desk I use in my dining room.
As I have told you before, this was one of
the first pieces of furniture she and my
Grandfather bought after they were
married. So now I have been given the
honor of taking care of it until its handed
down to one of my children.
I had a little oriental chest on it (an extra place
for dish storage) for the longest time, then
decided to move the chest to another room.
So I added my Big Lots cloche and put the
clock under it.
A night view.
I used a gold charger under the clock
and cloche.
The clock is from Stein Mart and has
grapes and grape leaves on it.
A wider view of the dining room, where you
can see the matching candle holders on the
dining room table.
Once again, don't forget to make a stop
and see all the wonderful creativity
waiting for you at
Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed
your visit.
Bye For Now,
