Our Home

Welcome to our home. It is a work in process. Grab a cup of tea and enjoy your stay. Making you comfortable is more important than having everything perfect. We have much to be thankful for!

 

hang old windows to create room on porch

This perfect spot for tea area overlooks the Bunny Bakery Garden and river. Edwardian windows are a keepsake from a former trip to St. Louis.

 

Victorian screen door

Original screen door, lovingly restored by a kind friend. This dining room exit to porch leads to steps to the Bunny Bakery Garden.

 

dining room set for tea

Dining room table is set for ladies luncheon. Chandelier is one of many that dear husband has hung for me.

 

kitchen remodel of 1900's kitchen

Kitchen almost done in this photo. Baseboard has yet to go in and Sellers (Hoosier type) cabinet is coming back in. Center island is an antique piece with metal foot rest.

 

kitchen corner with tea cart

Chalk painted tea cart, vintage aprons, chalk board made out of an oak mirror, crock of tin molds, antique curtain holder,  antique linens  and reproduction china style this kitchen corner.  Baseboard, molding, and door are from an old house in Nebraska that my dad tore down. Our home’s original molding and features: built in dish cabinets, benches & table in the kitchen nook, and butlers pantry, were removed in a 1970’s modernization.

 

shutter plate rack

Custom cabinet with shutter plate rack.

 

The alcove in the front room is perfect for our tree. It has a 10 ft. ceiling in that spot and the rest of the room is 12 ft.

warm yellow and pink bedroom

Warm yellow master bedroom with pink accents, heirloom basket quilt, decorative chandelier, and Victorian fireplace bench at foot of bed are some of the features. Coffered 12 foot ceiling.

 

Blue bath

According to the town historian Dr. Douglas who built our home bragged that this was the largest bath in town. I wish we had the original tub! Dress form is a family heirloom.  We plan to redo this room with claw foot tub, original wood floors, and crown molding.

 

Antiquities inside the window

Looking out the bathroom window at our crepe myrtles in full bloom. We use antique linens for window coverings for the bathroom windows. Rhonda, this photo is for you. I will look for the original and resize it so you can see it better! 🙂

 

blue and white bedroom with iron bed

Blue and white guest room with iron bed and old painted trunk. Because this room was squared up, there are roomy closets on both ends that show the rafters. Large fireplace mantle type shelf holds an old sewing machine, doll furniture and old dishes.

 

iron bed

Guest bedroom overlooking the river features an iron bed.

 

front parlor

Corner of the front parlor where we spend much of our time. Antique garments and accessories, Christmas puzzle, recovered antique couch, and antique armoire fill this section of the room.

This page is under construction and waiting for me to take updated photos.

 

“Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor; not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer, contributing to the needs of the saints, practicing hospitality.” Romans 12:10-12
