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.

China Cabinet Redo

Thanks for taking the time to stop by for a visit. There's
not allot I can do with all this stuff in this little space,
so I decided to make a few changes to my china hutch.
The inspiration came from this place mat I found at Ross
last fall.
The hutch was originally a dark wood tone, I wanted
to use it with the black chest I showed last week for
Table Top Tuesday so I gave her a good ole coat of
black paint and a little distressing and the pieces work
pretty well together.
I found this wrapping paper at the Dollar Tree last
year at Christmas. It's not an exact match, but pretty
close to the place mat.

Sorry for the glare!

So I guess thats about it for my handiwork this week.
So lets do a little house shopping in my little town.
Now I can promise you that if I had the chance ten
years ago to buy this ole girl, she would have been
mine. She a little big for just two people, at 3800
square foot she is only 400 square foot larger than
our old house and that's a little much. If you like
 old houses, you will be drooling over this one!

Would you like to sip some tea on the porch?
Gotta love those windows and doors!
Music room, ladies parlor?
Lots of great dinners here, I bet!!
Can we say Foyer??
Upstairs hallway leading to the upstairs balcony.
One of the four bedrooms.
 Ok, so now I'm going to walk my babies and since
this ole girl is on our walking route I'm going to drool.
But first, I'm going to join in Table Top Tuesday at
