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.

A Little Dinning Room Tour


A little tour of the dinning room all decked out for Christmas. As I said before I have used a fruit theme for the last several years. I just change things up a bit every year. Everything is self explanatory so I'll just let you look at the photos.

I have a beverage table already set up, with a small natural tree on it.

The tag reads: Heritage Doll
My name is Elizabeth.
Heritage dolls like me were made by grandmothers during the Civil War for little girls.
 
We were also called "Church Dolls". Little girls were allowed to carry up to church and if dropped while playing, we made no noise to distrube the service.

The before of the above fireplace, after many years of being closed. A little wire brush and black paint works wonders.
