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.

Fifty Cent Lamps

I hope you will join me at
for Metamorphosis Monday.
Well tonight you get to see a real blast from the
past!!!
Does anyone remember this lovely blue that
was the rage of the 80's?
Remember the decor from the Golden Girls?
These two old girls were found at a garage sale
more than a year ago. I have had a vision of a
tropical, beach bedroom and master bath for
quiet sometime, but always start another project
before I get to the master bedroom. I already have
two wonderful round white ottomans in my
bedroom and wanted to add more white to the room.
White in my bedroom just says rest and relaxation,
at least to me!
This was the weekend!!
So here is one of the old girls in all her blueness!!
Well for .50, what do I have to loose?
I sprayed the entire lamp with brushed metal
spray paint, then a light coat of white over that.
The lamps came with oval shades which were very
discolored and dingy looking, so I pulled out the
fabric stash and added a little pure white cotton
fabric to the shades. The fringe came from a
white valance I had, so I added that to the bottom.
A little shell hanging from a piece of rope and
I now have a little nautical going in the bedroom.
So join me tomorrow for Tabletop Tuesday
and I will show you the old girls all decked out.
Thanks for visiting!!!
Bye For Now,
