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.

Warming Things Up


Seems like I am always creating work for myself and constantly trying to arrange and make the long hallway in this house look a little more cozy and warm and not like a bowling alley. This is how it looked a couple of weeks ago. The walls were a bright white, which did help lighten things up a bit but made the room feel so cold.

 
 

And the walls now, with a few accessories added.


 
As you can see we still need to have the floors sanded, which will happen after the holidays. 
 
 
 A night view and I love the warm feeling the area now has. I hope to have a full  shot of the area in a week or so. I still have paintings and a little more touch up painting to do.
 
  
 
   
  
   
   
 
Ok back to work organizing bookshelves.
See you soon,
Sandy
