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.

Another Thrift Store Find

Just a short little post to show a great thrift store find. I found this beauty (remember beauty is in the eye of the beholder) a few weeks ago. Then the question came, where are you going to use it, and a better question, where are you going to store it? My solution, for now at least.....
Outside of course!
And who could pass up a $35.00 antique mantle?
A couple of ferns and a rocking chair, and your good to go. 
As you know we have been house hunting, so here are a few pictures of one of the places we really liked, but it just needed tooooo much work! It had tons of charm!
Great little living room and I adore the french doors going to the dinning room. Wonderful high ceilings.
Not a great picture of the dinning room but I did love the built in china cabinet and fireplace.

Gotta love a front porch!
Thanks for visiting.
