Farmhouse Tale {Earth Day}

Wednesday, April 22, 2009

When I called Darcy on Tuesday and asked how she was,
she replied......"cold".
"Why?" I said
"Well, we are out of propane and refuse to buy more at this point, she exclaimed &
the weather is supposed to be very warm by the end of the week, she said."
Darcy said, "I could take a hot bath, but then I would need to get out so what's the point of taking a hot bath!"
She then stated, "I even got back in bed and took a nap as it was nice and cozy under the blankets!"
Kudos to Darcy & her family for bundling up and using less energy.......

Now, here's a tour of her farmhouse:
Darcy's style: Antiquing meets garage sale meets Anthropologie meets Goodwill meets
McMaster & Storm meets trend-less, but timeless =Darcy

Here's a peek into Darcy's life in her farmhouse she shares with her loved ones!

"Come on in!" {Original door still in use saving trees!}
Vintage Dr.'s metal cabinet
Vintage light
Old display cabinet, base former Victoria's Secret display

Pair of matching chairs: Goodwill $9.00 a piece,

Tilly: new! Since Darcy isn't having any more children
she used her girl name for the doggie!

Vintage lamp FREE! Kara has the other matching lamp.
A lovely customer thought these looked just like us & boy was she right!
Rug: free
those chairs again!
Sofa new just refreshed with a canvas drop cloth from McMaster & Storm

This is just a sampling of the many things that Darcy has found in odd, inexpensive places.
She buys what she loves..........

The End.

Love it. Soaking in each picture and resting easy because I don't have to dust this place. I've only been in the room that used to be her store, and now I've been inside. Sort of, in a computer relationship kind of way. Thanks for sharing. I love house pictures.

Hi, girls!--

That was a fun tour and I love how she mixed old with new with vintage with all fits together perfectly. I also LOVE that she buys what she LOVES...that is what it is all about.

Washington is as wonderful as ever. It was 84 Monday, and I decided, like Darc, that we did not need anymore furnace oil. This morning our house was 52degrees. ;(

Yes we go to the Farm Chicks every year. But... check out this great show that we do every summer. Be sure and check it out.
