My 1890 Farmhouse

Hey Everyone, Sorry I have been gone for so long. I haven't  realized how long it has been since my last post. A lot has changed since then. My family and I have just started a new journey in our lives this July. We rented an old 1890 stone farmhouse.

It has a lot of potential. Its a shame the owners left it sit empty for a1 and 1/2 years. We did do some cleaning up outside. I planted a few flowers in the front flower bed that I moved with us. That is just a winter over place for them right now. I just wish I had a roof over my front porch.

So I will be doing a lot more posting of DIY projects and make overs. Every room gets one. I just cant wait to show you the before and after pics. Im also getting back into my crafting. So you will get to see some of my projects I make for the house and yard.

Just a little fill in on the house. 4 bedrooms,1 and 1/2 bath, living room, a large eat in kitchen, hall closet, foyer with stairs leading to a little landing, back stairs leading to the kitchen. 2 side porches, upper side porch or balocny ( whatever you want to call it) and a craft room twice the size I had before. My little piece of heaven.....lol The house also sits on about 3 to 4 acres. We also have a lot planned for the yard next summer too. A vegetable garden, butterfly garden and so much more. I just cant tell all my plans yet. You have to wait and see what they are. ;)

To be honest, I am getting so excited about decorating the house for the Fall/Halloween outside. I have soooo many idea and pinterest isnt making it any easier.....lol
