Renovation of the Family Farmhouse...


When my hubby and I purchased his childhood home, after his father passed away last year, we knew we had our work cut out for us.  Renovating a whole house, built in 1960, I wondered (right after the sale closing)... "Have we lost our minds!?"  Today I can answer that question... "No... Not yet!"

I purchased this lovely vintage screen from Theresa Cano of Garden Vntge Antiques.  She has a great new permanent space at Fredericksburg (Texas) Trade Days.  I've incorporated it into our farmhouse decor, and I can't wait to show you how!

So, here's the tease... I'm behind the curtain screen trying to upload photos of the before and after... Be back soon!

Hi Dixie,

I'm just stopping in to "stay in the loop."

Have a great day!

Dixie! Long time no see! as we used to say. ;) I'll have to go through your blog to catch up. That screen is fabulous and I can't wait to see where you put it. It's perfect! How wonderful you are redoing a family home - it's a challenge. xo Nancy
