it snowed today…

It snowed today. During my “working” lunch break, I had the opportunity to hop outside and take just a couple of shots! Also, if you were by recently for the Holiday Farm House Tour, you’ll now see some new photos of my tree and some additional photos of the foyer as I added to the…

  • Gorgeous pictures!
    Gwen could not be any more beautiful.

    From the post below, I LOVE your stockings and stunning chandelier! There’s never enough sparkle.
    I have lots of snow. 🙂 Come visit Kansas and you’ll have plenty.

    Oh I can’t wait until I can get the pictures out of my camera again!!ReplyCancel

  • Your photos are simply a delicious delight, as is your lovely house. Are those pics of the little girl your daughter? She is just so precious and that fabulous hat reminds me of the one’s I wore as a child. My favorite is the one where she is sticking out her tongue to catch snowflakes.ReplyCancel

  • Yes, Gwen is my youngest.

    Thank you both for the nice comments. CelestialCharms, that’s my favorite shot too 😉ReplyCancel

  • Thanks for stopping by. That little girl is adorable. Great work. Photography is so awesome. I hope to one day understand and tackle camera technology. We just got our family pics taken and have been posted at photosbycook.com under portraits, Hunts. Merry Christmas.ReplyCancel

  • I love your photography – so beautiful. I love the shot of your daughter catching snow on her tongue. The snow just adds that extra something to the festive spirit of your house.ReplyCancel

  • very nice miss. thang! I am jealous…..down here at 98 all we had was RAIN! Blech!ReplyCancel

  • PamperingBeki – Thank you very much, she’s a ham, that’s for sure. Will be posting more photos of them soon. It was sort of like the shoemaker’s shoes this year with holiday portraits – but I threw something together at the verylastminute.

    Kasey, your portraits came out beautifully!

    Yes, Dawn, this was all we got. I really miss a good snow. Can’t remember the last time we had one 🙁 May need to travel up north this year to see some powder soon. My ski’s haven’t been touched in years!

    Thanks so much everyone for visiting, it’s nice to “meet” all of you.

time to convert

I know, I know. It’s been said before – clawfoot tubs do not make great showers. But guess what? If my husband is repairing the shower downstairs, I am not going to take a bath every night for a month. As a result, we need to convert the small clawfoot tub into a working shower….

  • I love clawfoot tubs. I’m in the process of refinishing mine for my little coast house. I still like taking a bath in a clawfoot over a jet tub. Besides they are sooo romantic. I’ve for the clawfoot!!!ReplyCancel

  • Thanks Kathleen! I love it too. Honestly, however, I would much rather make use of it by being a shower. I really have no time for baths these days!!ReplyCancel

  • You know I love a clawfoot. They might not be ideal for showers but they can do in a pinch when you’re other bathroom is out of service.ReplyCancel

our farm: the kitchen

At some point, the kitchen is going to need a remodel and a serious update. The foundation is sloped (see, visibly, from left to right, it’s apparent from the half of the cabinet facing further right) but rest assured we are going to attempt to preserve what we can. The ceilings are tin, the walls,…

  • We have the same garbage can……..the rectangle one. I agree, they kinda suck! Our foot pedal STICKs all the time!ReplyCancel

  • I hope you recycle Dawn 😉 Yes, totally not worth the money.ReplyCancel

  • I like the simplicity and un-kitchen-ness of your kitchen. It’s very unfitted yet very fitting for your house. How do you find it for storage? Does it meet all your needs?ReplyCancel

  • Thanks for the comment Kat!

    It’s almost laughable. In no way does it fit our storage needs ;-( Actually there is a HUGE original cabinet towards the back (I will have to take a special photo of it and amend this post) that stores quite a bit! And we have a pantry that we actively use (will show you before/after pics of that as well – it’s coming). The pantry I added 5 cabinets to, so that helps a LOT.ReplyCancel

  • […] my savior…the pot belly stove. You can see a much better photo of it in my kitchen blog post. But I was so overjoyed and elated when I fired up this bad boy this […]ReplyCancel
