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.

It's a Grandma Thing!!

Come with me and lets go visit Marty at
for Table Top Tuesday.
Thanks for hosting, Marty.
Well the Holiday season is here! I'm sure everyone
is getting ready for Thanksgiving, just like I am!
We are expecting about fourteen for dinner, so the house
is cleaned and decorated for Thanksgiving. BUT WAIT!!
I received a wonderful email from my Son and DIL
asking if we could celebrate
 Thanksgiving and Christmas together  this year.
OF COURSE is every Grandma's reply, but oh no, the
 little ones have to have Christmas trees and decorations.
So up bright and early this morning, take down the
Thanksgiving decorations, pack them away, put them in the attic,
 start pulling down the Christmas decorations. OK, I have
 two weeks to decorate inside, which usually takes me a
 full three weeks.
Ready, Start, Go!!!
Where to start first????
Well silly, of course, in the cleanest rooms in the house!!!
Guest bathrooms and bedrooms!!
A little peak into one of my guest bathrooms.

A few goodies in the guest room.
My collection of music snow globes.
Lots of snowmen in this room.

Then I skipped onto the kitchen!
A little pick me up for the chandelier!
Some dried hydrangeas, a few sticks from the yard, pine
cones blue ribbon and a few small ornaments.

Now this is the only tree I have managed to put up
and I did it last night. I had to show you this, before the
decorations. I bought this tree at a garage sale last
summer for $10.00. Yes a 7 1/2 foot
Martha Stewart Christmas tree for $10.00.
Perfect condition!!
I just love the fullness of the tree.

Well don't forget to visit with all of today's party
goers!! Your sure to find some real eye candy!
Thanks For Visiting,
Now on Rudolph, Dancer, Vixen.......
A decorating we must go.....
