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 Shelf and A Giveaway!!!!

A huge "Thank You" to Marty at
for hosting today's event. Be sure to
stop by for a visit with everyone.
I have been MIA for the last few days
due to a little side trip to Charleston for
the Spoleto Festival. Be sure to join me
for Outdoor Wednesday and see some of
the festivities I had a chance to catch there.
Now onto the giveaway, June 9th is my one
year anniversary. I have really thought long
and hard about what to give, sooo....
I have come up with three books I thought
might appeal to everyone.....
Here they are:
Better Homes and Gardens
Style by Nature, this is a wonderful decorating
The next is Good Things from Martha Stewart.
I own this book and I love it. Tons of wonderful
The next is Frame Your Memories from
Readers Digest.
I thought with the variety, these three books
would appeal to the gardeners, decorators, cooks
and all the crafty people out there.
The rules are simple, if you are a follower or you
become a follower all you have to do is leave a
comment at the end of the post and let me know
and you will be entered for the drawing.
The drawing will be held on June the 10th. You only have to enter once and be a follower,
for a chance to win!!!
I like things simple.
Sorry for the glare, I will get a better picture of this one.
Now onto my table top, or should I say shelf
top? This is a shelf in my mud room that is
usually full of gloves, hats and you know all
that winter stuff we don't want to think about
for a long, long time.
So last week before leaving I decided to hide
all that awful stuff and change the area into
a little pantry.
Old diner dishes with a little hen.
A little copper, a little red and a French tray.
Banish the coats!!!
Bring in the copper and baskets.
I hope you enjoyed you visit.
Don't forget to leave me a comment and let me
know that you are following for a chance to win.
I look forward to hearing from you!
Good Luck!!!
Bye For Now,
