House Tour – Part 1

I have been getting plenty of requests for a house tour of our new place from family and friends so I thought I would take the opportunity over the holidays to get some pictures taken, finally!  The house is almost a 100 years old and was built in 1920.  There was an addition built in 2008 but they did a great job keeping within the aesthetic of the original farm house.  We have five acres of land, a barn which will soon house some chickens and my studio which hasn’t been winterized yet.  It was an incredible amount of work and perseverance to get this place but is was all worth it. In all of my 41 years and the many, many places I have lived, it is the first place that has truly felt like home from day one.

So, grab yourself a hot drink and come take a tour of some of our new place, before I take all of the Christmas decorations down.

Here is one side of the entrance. The other side was too messy to take a photo of, haha.

Which looks into our dining room. Those french doors go out to our basement and back yard.

You can just barely see the antique arrows in with the branches that I picked up in Vermont (in Mary’s shop of course).

The dining room is open to the living room on the right.  We have tons of big windows in the house which is great.  Although there isn’t much room for art work.

Our tree which we put up and decorated while listening to Boney M. Christmas and eating Pot of Gold chocolates.  We had to, it’s a tradition. The girls also take turns putting the star on top of the tree.

The other part of the living room which looks out onto the mountain.  One of the best views in the house and a great place to read a book.

The one thing we don’t have in this house is a fireplace :( My only complaint.  So, we consequently have no easy place to hang stockings. Why not use the bookshelves?

Through another set of french doors is the master bedroom. The doors to the left there go out onto a little patio that is all our own.

If you go back to the entrance and hang a left, there is one of the bathrooms in the house. I thought I would show you this one since it is the original bathroom and has the most character with the wood walls and cabinetry.

Next to it is our oldest girls bedroom.

Then we move on to the kitchen.

The kitchen is quite long and the lighting isn’t great but you can sort of see our coffee station to the left.

At the end is our little coffee drinking nook.

I had it all set up as a hot chocolate station over the holidays.

It has been so much fun finding places for all of my vintage pieces.  Next time I will show you the younger girl’s space and a bit of the outside (if it can just warm up a bit).

Happy New Year everyone!!  Hope you have had a relaxing holiday surrounded by love!
