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.

Paper or Plastic

Please join me for another Metamorphosis Monday at
As you can see I have a little help today with my project.
Meet Copper, I think we may have told him to many times
he's a pretty boy, because trust me he would not move. Sooo,
onto my project...
I found this little table at the thrift store this week, a $2.00 find.
This was really one of those times when you  had to have
imagination and see the bones. I just loved the iron legs!!
Have you ever been asked at the grocery store, paper or
plastic? We still have a couple of grocery stores in the area
that do that and even carry your groceries to your car!
So one day I said paper, please!!!
After tearing the paper into pieces, adding a little glue, then
a little walnut oil based stain.
The nail trim is from a chair I am in the process of
reupholstering. A pack rat never throws anything away.
As my Dad use to say, I might need that one day!

Thanks for visiting!
Bye For Now,
