House Tour

Welcome to our house! It is still far from completed, but we are finding it so much more comfortable now that we have an upstairs and downstairs to work with.

When you come in our front door, the downstairs is one big open room, with the sitting room to the right and the kitchen to the left...

First, the sitting room. Comfy seating, books, and a wool rug.

Brass lamps and lace on an antique dough box used as a side table.

  I keep imagining how different it will look when we have the walls and floor finished! But for now, I am quite content to have such a cozy space.

Now, turning to the other side of the room we have our kitchen area.
 (please forgive the laundry drying by the fire!)

 Still one of my favorite places in the house. Big wood table, my antique hoosier dish cabinet, and always some flowers in a jar.

Don't know what I would do without my ceiling joists for storage!

Kitchen Aid, rolling pins, and vintage aprons.

If there is one thing I could collect, I would probably be dishes...

You saw right - I have a sink! Soon after Marian was born, Jordan and Laredo put in a kitchen sink! Talk about exciting stuff - in case you have never had experience with this wonderful modern invention - it. is. incredible. Even though this sink is just temporary till we fine 'the one', I LOVE IT. I feel like I have a real kitchen. The amount of work running water over a drain saves is pretty incredible. If you have a sink, be very, very thankful. I surely am!

Spices and baking items in vintage glass jars with decorative labels...

 These banners have been through a lot, first made for the Jane Austen booth event, then used at the wedding and other celebrations, now adorning my kitchen windows.

 Now, won't you come upstairs??

Our bedroom.  I really love being here, its so bright and cheery with all the sunny windows. I used the same swiss dot fabric for the curtains as I used in the sitting room, but also added a creamy lace valance.

 Mirror and lamp over the dresser.

Pom-pom trim on the door curtain 

 I love the view from this window behind my bedside table.... 
(which is actually a stack of boxes covered with a tablecloth...but you wouldn't have know if I hadn't told you!)

 Upstairs is also one big open room right now, we have curtains hung up to divide the rooms where we will eventually have walls. This is the beginning of the spare bedroom/ kids room in time. My old iron bed. The missing window is the last window we need for the house. So far we haven't been able to find one of the right size and type.

 Drum roll please! - my sewing room. This is just beginnings, but it is oh-so-nice to have a space dedicated to my work! Have a look at those fabric shelves Jordan and Laredo made me? Aren't they awesome?

 My vintage singer iron and sewing machine have a home again!

Vintage suitcases store lace, supplies, and unfinished projects.

I hope you enjoyed the tour! Come visit us for real sometime!
