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.

Pending Contract

Yippee, we are finally under contract!  Signed last night!
It has been a very long eight months, but I guess I should feel very
blessed, since it is taking some people years to sell!
I guess it helps that there are only four houses in town for sell.
So now will come the fun (not so fun) part, packing, tossing more
and finding another place. At least DH and I will wake up in the
same state! So maybe if all goes well I can meet some of the creative
 and talented  SC bloggers I stalk  mean follow!

See you soon,

Working With What You Have!

Not allot has changed in the dining room.
If you read my last post, you saw that the house has
been on the market for the last eight months and
anyone who has sold a home knows what the most
dreaded word is...declutter and maybe there is one
more depersonalize!!!!!
OK so now we are "For Sale By Owner"
one possible contract this week! If not the house will
come off the market until spring! The winters are just to
bad here to try to move! Our plans are to downsize, since
we are now empty nester's!
A little pretty from a garage sale last summer with
clearance candles from TJ Maxx. Adds a little fall
touch with the hydrangeas.

 My Grandmother's desk.
Now you will think I am totally crazy!
See the large pot? A four dollar garage sale find this
summer, I know who buys these things when they may
making a three hundred mile move? That would be ME!
 Love the shape and color!

 The color matches my little square plates perfectly!
 Moved my little french settee back to the dining room
 for a change.
Well that's all for now!
See you soon.

So What's Been Happening AT Copper~n~Things?

 Doesn't seen like nine months since my last post, but
November was my last post! So what's been going on?
Seven month's of this!
 One month of this, and maybe a contract!!!
So now the next question is.....
What do you do with your time, when you can't
redecorate, change things on a weekly basis and
have your little sashes in the corner of
"To Do Projects".
Well there were graduation pictures to be taken!
 The big day!
 Spend a little time with these little guys!
 Judge a pageant!
 Build sand castles!
 Send Grandma pictures from your hotel
 Take piano lessons, and I still need many more!
 Or just cruse around with hubby and enjoy the sun!
Although I have not posted anything recently, I have been
making my rounds and the creativity never stops!
I can see my little blog needs lots of updating!
My plans are to do a posting tomorrow for
Tabletop Tuesday!
So I hope to see everyone then!
