I debated on showing parts of my home at this time as there is still a lot of work to be done. The walls and trim need painting and there is still remnants of a wallpaper border that just isn't my taste. I'm looking forward to finishing this area. Currently, in this area of my home there is paneling on the walls, I may just paint over it as it provides a bit of that farmhouse look.
My Hubby just gave me these two Ironstone pieces for Christmas last month. I absolutely love them, especially the pitcher. I'm just starting to collect Ironstone and the pitcher was definitely a must have.
I purchased this wooden churn in Michigan a few years ago. I flipped the top upside down and it makes for a great display piece.
Oh yes...another piece of Ironstone that my Hubby purchased for me (under the lamp). I think I'm becoming addicted to this "stuff".
This black cabinet was purchased at The Brass Armadillo in Iowa (oh how I LOVE that store). It's a newer piece made to look old but I love it regardless, it makes for great storage too.
This antiques sign was purchased at a local craft sale.
I wanted to take these photos today as my Hubby is removing this door and replacing it with two french doors. As my home is a bit choppy, we're hoping this will provide more of a flow and allow more light through. This is the original outer wall of my home, my Hubby discovered beautiful, old wood on the other side and we hope to leave it exposed in the next room (this will be shown in a future post). This is the closest thing to shiplap that we'll find (just love it on "Fixer Upper").
My Hubby bought me this old washstand shortly after we were married (for Christmas of course LOL). We have only been married just over three years so he learns quick. It's another piece I love.
I just love the knobs on it. One is missing so I'm hoping to find a replacement for it.
Unfortunately the light was shining too brightly through this door but it's all I have at the moment. You can see the wallpaper remnants at the upper corner of the photo. At the time I was removing the wallpaper, it started to peel the paint off in this area so I left it until it's time to paint.
I purchased this bucket (I believe it is for measuring "something") at a local antique store.
These pictures were given to me by my wonderful Mom 3-4 years ago. She purchased these cards and placed them in frames for me. She always knew how important it was for me to live in the country, it was her way of giving me a piece of it, I wish she had been here to see it come true. I will cherish these always!
I hope you enjoyed this little tour.
