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.

From The Old To The New

Since leaving a 3400 square ft house and moving into 1400 square ft rental, I have had to become
a little creative in the the storage area of my life. I now have a grand total of five cabinets in the kitchen so a trip to Target for some heavy duty kitchen shelving and a few thrift store and yard sale
finds and here is my solution. I know this is not a table top, but since it's very open and I look at it
everyday hope it qualifies.
Large jars and lots of baskets.

My solution for all those lids is this basket. A $1.00 find at a yard sale and a little stain, wrapping paper from the Dollar Tree and the S from Hobby Lobby and I think it works.

See my lids peaking up?

A great jar from Good Will, again my wrapping paper, a scrape piece of rope and my label is complete.

Yes, these are those large pickle jars with other baking supplies in them!

Well I guess that's all for now, but keep looking you may find more ideals below that inspire you.
Yes, you guessed it, another house!
We are still on the hunt for a house, so here are a few pictures from a model home/sales office I looked at recently.
Yes, it is a total change from the other pictures I have posted, but a nice change and lots of
decorating ideals. This particular home is built to mimic the  houses in downtown Charleston.

Front entry and a living room or dining room. The builder had it staged as a living room.

Kitchen, breakfast/dining room, and family room area.

I know everyone is going lighter in their color schemes, but I love all the color in this house.
This powder room is to cute!

The upstairs game room, family room, home office.
This is the first thing you saw as you went up the stairs, (sorry it is so dark).

Master bedroom

Is this not to cute? What little girl wouldn't love sleeping in here.

Decisions, decisions. Well I guess that's all for now.
Thanks for visiting.
