Happy New Year everyone!   I don’t know about you but I always need an extra week after Christmas to jump back into regular life :).  This Christmas break, (although fun) was a bit crazier and colder than previous ones.  3 days before break I was given the bad news that our pellet stove was condemned, we found our hot tub water temperature at 37 degrees and some of the pipes had frozen, and we had some trouble with our 1 year old heater and it was off for a few days.  Yikes!

For a sneak peak of what we have been up to with our farmhouse…. we have also been busy with our kitchen remodel.  We took down the rest of the upper cabinets, Jason started building a vent hood surround and we took down some of the ceiling in preparation for adding a bead board ceiling.  With everything going on I wanted to share 10 popular posts from last year you might have missed :).

I have long been on the hunt for the perfect church pew for our farmhouse.  Our home is the headquarters for many family dinners and holidays so seating can often be at a premium.  Church pews are great because they can fit a lot of people without sacrificing much needed floor space.  We found this pew for sale on Craigslist at a local antique shop and were very excited by it's size and craftsmanship. furniture makeover / hydrangeas and watering can

When we decided to create our sunken brick patio one thing that I really wanted to add was a wooden arbor entrance from the garden.  Our wooden arbor does a wonderful job of making this outdoor space feel more like an outdoor room.   This wooden arbor was fairly simple to make and we made it using scrap wood from the deck that we took down and wood left over from creating our wood retaining wall.
