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.

On The Move Again

You may remember my outdoor fireplace mantle I had on the back porch. It used to look like this. Well it has moved again!!!
The third and final time I hope, remember I had it a our rental!

At our rental.

Now in it's new home. The reason for the move, so it could be secured to the wall. On the porch it would have been much harder to secure to the outside wall. We had a  terrible winds last winter and it did blow over.
I used burlap to cover the opening and the whole thing will change in the next couple of weeks, when I start decorating for fall.
Our little outdoor kitchen area that we are in the process of making. The sink has yet to be installed but we do have a refrigerator and prep table as well as the grill and a nice place to sit and eat. I hope to have the ceiling fan over the table installed this fall. The fence you see leads to an enclosed court yard. I also have a small table out there a beautiful place in the morning to have coffee or even breakfast.
A little plant stand with a hanging lantern in place of the plant hanging. I sat a pot of confederate jasmine in the bottom and I think it like it's new home.
Hope you enjoyed the saga of the traveling fireplace mantle.
