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.

Only Blue and White

 I hope everyone had a great weekend. I finally got outside today, it felt really good after being in the house for so long. I did a little cleanup in the courtyard. I can't wait for spring to get here. I titled my post only blue and white since I have taken up the last room of green carpet. The last bedroom to have carpet and although it was allot of work, I was thrilled to find the floor had been sanded before the carpet was put in. So the only thing I had to do was give it a light sanding and stain. I left this room white, when we moved in most of the rooms were white and I'm not really a white room kind of girl, but I had everything in this room from my last house and decided to use it here.

The stroller was mine when I was a baby. Dating myself here. The little stool I found at Good Will awhile back, it was green and looked as though it had been cut down from a larger one. I just used a little left over fabric from the curtain panels.

I added a few more goodies to the mantel.

I'm thinking, just thinking about a little white chalk paint to this little chest. I'm still not sure, I have the matching chair on the other side of the room at a desk I painted white. Bought them both at a thrift store years ago.

The lamps I found at a moving sale last summer. So I just thought I would add a little pink.

Now I have to say I was just proud as a peacock, that I was rid of the green, then I looked up. I forgot about this! I'm happy to say it is on it's way out, I hope to get another stained glass fixture up within the next couple of weeks. Just have to wait for the mail lady!

 I guess that's about it for now, or until I get a new light up!
