was a little warmer than it's been...
we still had the woodstove on in the Keeping Room to make the farmhouse cozy ~
I've been cleaning and tidying up a bit too,
taking down most of the Hallowe'en items that I've had up for what seems like months now.
Being in business where I always have to be ahead of season,
it's always hard to figure out what I want to display to help me in my designing...
I am finding myself drawn to a less cluttered look.
I'm tired of store-bought things and how they just don't 'fit' in anymore.
I am going to be selling off a lot of my things that just don't fit my tastes any longer,
or things that I just don't positively L O V E.
So, keep an eye on my Etsy Shop to see what goodies I might be offering you ~
In the meantime, have a visit with me in my little farmhouse ~
happy to have you!
|~ as you enter our front door an old clock case and pewter with drieds greets you ~|
|turn to your left and you enter our snug little dining room ~|
|dining room from another angle ~|
|walk through and you will enter our keeping room ~|
it was originally two divided rooms, but the original owners took down the walls opening up one large room...
this is the back of the keeping room

|looking to the front of the keeping room (from the back) you can see our mantel with flat screen tv above ~|
|I want to cover the tv when not in use, so I've been perusing the internet for UNIQUE ideas ~|
I think I have one ~ I'll share with you once finished....

|this is my personal view of the mantel/tv from my favorite spot on our sofa ~|
we have a matching sofa & loveseat that rocks and reclines...also is near the wood stove.
Perfect place to watch old movies and do my handwork.
I'll be finishing up the Holly Vine wool appliqué class model today and will share the finish with you this evening...
*Blessed be, my Friends*
