This old country farmhouse living suits me, said the city girl from Texas. My love of old homes, well old anything, has been a part of me as far back as I can remember. I have a love for old doors, old skeleton keys, old wood floors. Touring these homes during our house hunting expeditions has been so fun. Being able to see the craftsmanship, during our house hunting trips has been amazing.
Homes in the area are ninety percent older homes, so you can imagine. The latest home we toured had wood floors that were beautifully preserved in their original form. The basement was in pristine condition. Casings, corbels, and trim were untouched and this home is over 100 years old. I love that previous homeowners cared and preserved that beauty!
This rental we’re in, is also an over one hundred year old home that’s a beaut! I call it my little old farmhouse with it’s charm and quaintness. She has a lot of character, creaky wood floors and all. I sometimes sit and wish the walls could talk and fill me in on it’s history. What those walls and floors have heard, right?
Country Farmhouse Living
This grand lady has lots of character and I enjoy decorating her and helping her shine.
Some of her grand features are her floors, all original. The casings and trim throughout, also original. Then you have some of the original glass on the windows and original door hardware throughout (amazing)!
The landlord has some of her grandmother’s furniture pieces still in the home and I get to enjoy them daily.
Since I’ve been crushing on black and white buffalo check print, I was excited to find these precious & fun farmhouse dessert plates that tie in with the black and white theme. Hooray for goats, sheep, cows, pigs, & roosters! These are plain adorable! They go great with a black charger, white porcelain plate, enamel mugs and buffalo check linen napkins.
What speaks farmhouse better than cast iron pans, right? It’s what I think about when I think of farmhouse & country living. A panful of hot, fluffy sweet potato biscuits for breakfast. A must in any southern home, baking in an aged- well used, cast iron pan!
Checkout these adorable antique berry baskets! Hubs recently went knife hunting and came back with these wire-rimmed, pint sized berry baskets made of balsa. They’re fantastic and right now I just have them holding the enamel cups. Don’t you think it’ll be great to fill with treats for the guests? Or an assortment of tea bag? Got plenty of those!
Hope you enjoyed this glimpse into our current little country farmhouse living.
