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 Little Old Fashioned

I been a very Lazy blogger this summer, preferring
to enjoy the outdoors and a little socializing.
But today I decided to join Marty at
for the Table Top party, so come join me and
drool over all the wonderful ideals waiting for
you there.
I know my contribution today is not a table top
but just to be honest, I haven't been doing allot
of anything indoors, the last few weeks. Most of
my creativity has been in the garden. I know to
most of you, this will seem very old fashioned with
all the gold!
My new look for the foyer.
I just love ferns!! The mirror was a yard sale find, $5.00. Notice the shell design at the top, it is also on the chair and matching stool. There is a second candle holder on the other side of the mirror, the fern is hiding it.
What do you think? More pictures or not?
The plant stand is a trash to treasure project.
A friend gave me the scrolled pieces I used
for the feet, the post is an old wooden broom
handle and the actual tray that holds the plant
is a tray that had saw better days. A little paint
to unify all the pieces and you have a plant
stand! I placed my folding card table/fire screen
over the AC vent to help hide it a little, such
a big ugly thing.
Well Thanks for visiting. Don't forget to let me
know what you think!
Bye For Now,
