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 Rescue

Thank you Marty for hosting this event.
Be sure to visit Marty at
"A Stroll Thru Life"
and all of today's participants.
You will not be disappointed!!!
Well this is my rescue from a week ago.
I have not found to many items to be
rescued or that I would really want to
rescue, since living here, but this one
caught my eye. Now mind you I was on
my way to have a yard sale with a friend
of mine. My little car packed to the roof,
everything organized, clean and ready to
be sold. I have been a good girl and
purging things, that I could live without.
Well I think that car slowed down by itself,
or at least that's my story to DH and I'm
sticking to it!!!
So down the road I go, gasping for breath I
say to my friend, you should see whats
just sitting on the side of the road!
We hop in her truck, (always have a friend
with a truck), and I brought this little beauty
home.
Sorry for the bad photos, I either have to much
light coming into the house or not enough.
She now sits in my dining room, to hold extra
linens. I have always wanted to buy a highboy
for my dining room, just never got around to
buying one, but I think this will work fine for
now.
There is a very large drawer in the bottom,
I just knew would hold my silver case, but it
just didn't fit. So now she sits on top of the
cabinet.
Is this just not great?? Although I haven't
gotten all my linens put away yet, I think this
will work just fine for me.
The drawers are the perfect size for napkins.
Well I hope I didn't bore you to much with
my rescue. Thanks for stopping by, be sure
to let me know what you think, good ideal,
bad ideal, I love hearing your suggestions.
Don't forget to stop by Marty's.
Bye For Now,
