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.

What A Difference Black Makes

Happy Mothers Day to everyone !!!
Thanks Susan for hosting today's event.
Be sure to drop by
and take a look at all the great ideals
that you will find there.
I missed last weeks posting to Metamorphosis
Monday, so I will continue my mini
kitchen update this week.
This is a tiny little cabinet that sits in the
corner of the kitchen just before you go into
the foyer. I had the solid panels cut out a
couple of years ago and added the glass.
Then changed the plain knobs to the grape
knobs.
Please ignore the messy shelves!!!
The change, if you remember I used the
same knobs on the, coat closet turned
pantry.
Now this little shelf hung over it. It really
never looked finished to me!!!
My solution.........
A door with wire in it!!!
So what do you think??? Better????? Or not???? Be Honest!!!!!
A picture of some of my cabinets with
the brushed nickle finish. Now this looks
kind of washed out, but still much better
than the gold ones that were here when I
moved in.
What a difference black makes!!!!!
Better?????? Or Not??????
I also changed things up a little on top of the
counters. I am seeing allot of coffee stations
on TV now, so I tried to set one up, for
tea and coffee. I may change this up a little
and put this in my appliance garage on
the other side of the kitchen, what do you
think?
My latest love!!!
This is great for a large get together,
three different foods all staying warm at the
same time, one outlet used!!!
Well I guess I have milked this kitchen
update as much as I can. I will have one more
post on this, next week. A face lift for my
center island!!! Please let me know what you
think, any suggestions or comments are always
appreciated!! I will get back to you as soon as
possible. I am now a working girl again, at
least part time. I'm working for Century 21
as a personal assistant to one of the agents.
I may be going to Charlotte next month to
get my staging certification, I will have
think about that one!!! Bye For Now,
