This came in the mail today. It was a nice surprise.
About a year ago a very nice man stopped by our house. He had a book in progress about country homes from all across America, though only a few are from the Western US. He and his wife came back and took some really nice pictures of our house and our outbuildings.
It's a lovely book and if you are interested you might want to take a look here.... All of the photos I have uploaded are of our home with the exception of the snow scene below. I love this house. It's just "up the road" to the North of us and the snow is so beautiful in this photo. Doesn't the light in the windows look so welcoming? It's like the house is saying, "Please come in and warm yourself by my fire".
We are pleased and flattered to be included in Tim's book. These homes are absolutely beautiful, and to me this book is pure eye candy. But then you are talking to a woman who never gets tired of looking at country properties. I am still actively mourning the loss of Country Home magazine. Anyone else sad that it's gone?
There are always "works in progress" at the Homestead. We still have many unfinished decorating projects and particularly some bare walls to fill with treasures, but it's fun to look back on these photos and see how much we have done in the last little while. The bed wall in our Granary Guest house below has changed so much in the last year. Unfortunately, I'm still hand quilting the grain sack quilt.
I'm off to work on some weekend projects. Hopefully I'll have something to show you next week. Have a nice weekend!
