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.

Random Changes

Yes, I know you are tired of seeing this view, but I
just couldn't help myself.
So join me at "A Stroll Thru Life" for Tabletop Tuesday.
Thanks Marty for hosting!
My changes came for two reasons, two thrifty finds I just
had to show you. One is the blue and white tea light and
the other is my new made to look old radio! Both were
yard sale finds, and the best part was the bargain price
 $2.00 for the radio and $1.00 for the tea light.
 The radio did need a new plug, but that was an easy fix.
 Now I must tell you, I have never really been a person to
 use allot of blue in my house, so when I moved here
I was really at a loss as to what to do with the kitchen.
 With the ceramic floor tile being blue and gray tones
 I had to work with it, so after five years,
it's growing on me, and I have started to collect a
 little blue to go into the room.
Same lamps as before, the plates were changed from
 white to blue, more yard sale finds, these are just little
 metal plates a service for eight for $3.00, not bad!

I also changed my little plate rack over my sink.
Used the little tin cups that go with the dishes.
I'm really glad I started to do a few of these changes,
it will really help when I start my Christmas decorating
after Thanksgiving, since I decorate this room in blues.

But for now, fall is still in the air!
Thanks for visiting.
Bye For Now,
