Welcome

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.

What A Deal




Lots of projects and long overdue yard work going on here since the weather has finally cooled off here a bit. We have two courtyards, one is in pretty good shape but needs additional color and plants and the other is badly overgrown and also needs to be replanted with color. I did have an opportunity to stop by our Habitat for Humanity Thrift Store the other day and look what I found! There were a whole stack of these babies in a little out of the way corner. There were several different sizes, but since we have and old house I knew theses were the best fit for me, plus these were in the best shape of all the larger ones.


 
Now we all know how expensive plantation shutters are, so are you ready for the price tag?
 

 

 
That's right $2.50 each. So for a total of $10.00 I was able to skip right out of the store with four shutters. Now that's what I call a thrifty treasure. We are still working the island and hope to have it finished in the next couple of weeks. Then I will be able to get these in the guest room



 
Thanks for visiting.
