Day 846: new blog to love
I'm going to have to interrupt the regular "Friday pretty" to show you a host of pretties from a new-to-me blog, A Country Farmhouse. I stumbled upon Trina and her lovely life earlier in the week, and can no longer keep it to myself.
She and her husband bought a little farmhouse and have been working to restore it from a 1970s-style paneled mess (even the fireplace surround was paneled!) to its humble, but beautiful, origins.
Trina writes that the blog is a way to chronicle their renovations, and a place to share "musings of a few of (her) great passions...country life, antiques, old houses and healthy living."
Here is her new-but-looks-old kitchen, which I love. The wood counters are from Ikea (we've been scoping them out for our kitchen remodel) and the cabinets are made by a local craftsman and the doors modeled after Trina's antique pie safe. So authentic, that a contractor made the comment that he assumed they would be "tearing out the old kitchen anyway, right?"
Can you imagine a better place to unwind with a glass of wine at the end of the day? I personally cannot. Please click on the picture to get a load of that view!
Trina, I promise I'm not a crazy person (even though I read your entire blog yesterday and today posted a picture of your silverware drawer on mine -- who does that?), let's be friends!
