"Home is the nicest word there is." - Laura Ingalls Wilder
Welcome to our home! Handy Hubby built our home in 2012. Doing most of the work ourselves means that our home is always a work in progress...it's what we do...a true labor of love.
A house is built with boards and beams. A home is built with love and dreams.
I love to fill our home with things that tell a story...
...picnic table found in an old barn
...a rock found while excavating our property
...a picture drawn by my oldest daughter when she was 9 years old - a Mother's Day gift
...an antique rug beater
...a plant that my mom gave me, displayed on an old sewing machine
...a saltbox house that my dad made, displayed on the plant ledge
...cabinet tops displayed with treasures
...a farm sink...well, because it is pretty
...painted furniture, jugs and crocks - to remind us of times long ago.
