There is one word to describe J.  Absolutely precious – {OK, that’s two words but it’s so much easier just writing to explain my understanding that I used two words as opposed to backspacing to remove a word that absolutely belongs before the first…} I have known J.’s mother for over 5 years. I met…

the acosta family

‘Tis the season for family sessions at Laura Bruen Photography. This time of year is great. I get to see *everyone’s* children and see how much they have grown. I really enjoy seeing everyone although during this time I rarely get a chance to just *hang* out with my clients; who also have become dear…

our farm:the upstairs bathroom

I’m going to jump upstairs to give a view of the upstairs bathroom. For those that have Full Access, you can refer to it’s location on the Second Level Floorplan. Nothing has changed in this room since we purchased it. Original tin ceilings and walls!  psst…now, I’m going to pretend I don’t see those orbs…

    What is that circular spot in the open doorway? Would that be your friendly neighborhood ghost?ReplyCancel

  • Totally saw those orbs and gasped before I even read your note! tee hee! Also, didn’t your momma tell you to never stand on the toilet!???????? You could fall in! The things we do for photos! I lurv the tub!!!! That bathroom needs a chandelier!ReplyCancel

  • Oh, I totally agree Dawn, no doubt!ReplyCancel

  • I think the silver sage paint would look great in there. If you have it already, might be worth a try. We have it in our kitchen and depending upon the time of day it goes from a blueish green to a grey so its very versatile.

    Love the ceiling in there – its totally gorgeous. Not sure if you were planning on painting that too but that would look amazing in silver leaf.

    On your clawfoot tub – I hate to tell you this but they are not very shower friendly. They are simply not meant to contain the kind of water splatter you get in a shower. So you have to have this huge shower curtain around the whole thing which totally spoils the look and then even after all that, water still gets on the floor. Of course people use them for showers all the time but there are annoying.ReplyCancel

  • […] wants something new, and I have TONS of new stuff – a bathroom reno and a bathroom paint job (yeah, that bathroom). However – work and life these last few weeks has been rather hectic. I’ll tell you, working […]ReplyCancel

our farm: our well

On the topic of creepy, please see, the WELL! I love this thing.  Pre-Civil war well, you don’t see them on properties often 😉   We love it.  It actually has a spicket that goes to it so I can water plants (although I have yet to use it for such purpose). Photos taken from…

living with a ghost?

In the spirit of upcoming Halloween, I figured I’d share my own ghost story. This is going to sound crazy, so I’m going to preface it with telling you I’m usually a skeptic when it comes to such things and allow you to draw your own conclusions. When I was younger I used to be…

    My boys told me that one night when they had friends over, they were having snacks in the kitchen and there was a glass on the counter by the stove. They said both they and their friends saw the glass move from one side of the counter to the other. I’m sure I’ll remember other incidents and will come back and post them for you. I spoke to both my sons last night and told them of your phone call. They both thought it was pretty cool. As I said to you on the phone, nothing bad ever happened; we always thought he/she was glad to have a nice family live in the house and take care of it. So keep up the good work and don’t worry about a thing.ReplyCancel

  • Time to call Jason and Grant.

    Get those TAPS folks out there to see what they find.

    You might also send the kiddo’s off to grandparents house, and have a ghost hunt with some of your friends. Stay up late, with tape recorders, video cameras and still cameras.

    Oh! You could be semi-official ghost hunters by the time the TAPS team comes out.ReplyCancel
