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.

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.
