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 Red For Valentines Day

 A little late posting tonight. It was such a beautiful day here 69 degrees, no way I was going to stay in the house. Outside most of the day cleaning flower beds, great to be in the sun for awhile. Back to winter tomorrow, snow tomorrow, I thought I moved away from snow!! OK so I added a little red to the bedroom mantel, you know for Valentines Day. But to tell you the truth I look for any excuse to add red, it is my favorite color.

A little wine to warm you up on a cold winters night.
The oil lamp belonged to my Great Grandmother.

Maybe learn a little French while you sip your wine. The little French to English book belong to a dear friend of mine and several of the books are ones that my Grandfather carried in his shirt pocket every day.

The little picture is of course from a yard sale.

So maybe your not in the mood for wine, how about a cup of tea?

The tea cup is sitting on a little French table I bought years ago at auction. France stamped on bottom.

Cold night, better warm the bed. Another estate sale find last summer

The mirror I have had for years and have taken with me on every move. Also from an estate sale.

I love the detail, even though it has some issues. I think it gives it character.
