We’re on the Move!

As of last night, we have an offer on our house! It looks like we’ll be moving to the farm in early April. So much to do . . . so little time! We’re looking forward to the move and bringing our Alpacas and Great Pyrs home. Let the fun begin!

Barn Quilts

I have a new appreciation and fascination with Barn Quilts. After all the trips we’ve made down to Dougherty Creek Farm to visit our Alpacas, it was just yesterday that I really took notice of all the beautiful quilt designs on the sides of barns and other buildings on the farms as we travelled through the rolling hills of Lafayette County. I’m enthralled with the stories and designs of each barn quilt and am looking forward to creating my own for the barn on our farm. A maple leaf quilt block . . . of course!

Day Dreamin’

Now . . . we wait . . . for our current house to sell. My Angels have assured me that it won’t take long!

In the meantime, I’m day dreamin’ about what I want to do with our little gem of a farmhouse.

The short list:

  • rip out and replace the old farmhouse staircase (it’s great if you’re a long distance ski jumper!)
  • add a kitchen island (in white to offset the oak cabinets)
  • replace the tiny kitchen window (rip out the existing window and cupboards on either side and replace with a big ass garden window for more light and a view of the back yard!)

The long list:

  • paint, paint, paint, replace carpeting, paint, paint, paint, create garden with gazebo, get chickens, get donkey, paint, paint, paint

About the Farm

We put in an offer on a dream farm yesterday and last night it was accepted! Yahoo!

Now the fun begins . . . go to the bank, get our current house sold, pack, move house, install fencing, and finally bring home our “girls”. And of course, there are going to be all those little things in-between. I’m not worried though . . . I know that everything is in Divine Order!
