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.

Two Old Girls

Want to hear the tale of these two old girls?
Well they were found sitting on the side of the
road!! My heart went out to them, but did I need
another project, (not really, I do have my share,
tucked away in closets, in the basement, attic, well
you know how it goes), but leave them on the side of
the road all weekend, I think not! So home they came!
As you can see they were dressed in old leather
(looks like plastic to me, made to look like leather),
but who could tell them and hurt their feelings? Straw and old cotton for the seat and back, come
with me old girls, lets pretty you up!
Well here they are today, ready for a bit of tea! A light sanding and stain to make that wood pop, and a tag sale shower curtain for a little drama! This is the second time I have used fabric shower curtains for one of my projects and both came from tag sales. I am amazed at the beautiful fabric shower curtains you can find, and the amount of fabric in one curtain.
Lets take a break and have a little tea.
Feet cold? Feel free to use Mr. Bear.
After a little more tweaking and a daytime view.
Ready to snuggle in for the cooler days of fall!
As you can see I have started to decorate a little
for fall.
Well thanks for visiting, and be sure to stop by
Thanks Susan for hosting today's event.
Bye For Now,
