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.

My 2014 Fall Porch

I've had a very busy summer and been MIA for awhile. Between house guest from the end of May through August, yard work, both the flower and vegetable gardens as well as canning, there has been no time for blogging. Work has just started again on the house, but I did take a little time to decorate the porch for fall. This is a rather large porch, taking up the front of the house, then wraps around both sides of the house. I tried to create different areas, or little rooms depending on what your mood might be for sitting on the porch. I created a little eating area for four, lounging, conversation, a two person or maybe a cup of coffee in the morning area ( we have used it for desert, and quiet conversation) and then you can just go to either side and sit alone and swing. So here we go, I hope you enjoy.

You can see my dries hydrangea tree in the background. All the hydrangea came from my courtyard and I used an old grapevine topiary as my form, then spray painted them with copper paint.

So as night starts to fall, again "Welcome To Our Porch".
