The Magic of Soap and Paint

Here are some before and after pictures of our new homestead.  I will post pictures after I have finished decorating as well once we move in.  One doesn’t need much to make an old, dilapidated looking house look fresh and inviting…like home.  A bucket of soapy water, a few gallons of paint, and some friends can make an amazing difference!

Tomorrow we transfer a truck load of medicinal herbs and fix fencing.  Two week countdown….

      I love the wood cookstove! I hope I don’t burn everything the first fifty times but I do expect a certain amount of trial and error!
