Join me as I embrace and share truly authentic American country style by reclaiming the past...my family's past. Come along as I make my house a home on a $0 budget with reclaimed, repurposed, recycled and found treasures all out of my grandparent's old house, local junk shops and my parent's attic. And since we have to eat too, I'll sprinkle in some gardening, country recipes, and a whole lot of southern hospitality.

Oh so blue:-)

Honestly, I KNOW I am the worst blogger ever:-) I am still here, but things have been crazy! Luis and I have been so busy playing and we just started playing for a new youth worship service, and we have a youth revival, youth VBS and some other opportunities coming that we are busy preparing for plus three kids out of school for the summer.  In the meantime...


We have had bears visiting...


New chicks came to live here, although we started out with 7, we now have two. large, healthy ones! I cannot wait for organic eggs. 


And there have been a few significant changes that I can't wait to share with you. Can you guess this one? No, I haven't gone white but I did brighten things up a bit still with lots of color. I'll share these changes soon. I promise!

  2. Been thinking and talking about you lately Anita. Been dreaming of buying some property out your way, but we need a rich uncle. It's too far for my husband's work. :( We might be able to swing 5 acres of land, though. Your house is our inspiration for our next home.
    I'm so jealous of your baby chicks! We've wanted to have chickens since we moved here to NC 12 years ago. Unfortunately, we live with an HOA. I am loving my veggie garden, though, so I can't complain! Hope you have a great weekend!

  3. Love your table decorations, and that runner is beautiful. You can keep the bears. :) Enjoy all your upcoming activities. My grandson has two youth camp's to provide the music for, so he's getting excited about that. I've told you about him before. He's at Lee University, studying to become a Music Minister. He does a great job with the youth music work.

    Have a blessed summer.

  10. WOW Bears, that is scary Anita!~ Glad you and Luis are so busy doing and sharing what you love. This time of years slows down for me as well with blogging. My boys are home and it leaves me very little time for me. They are still sleeping now, which is a good thing!
