Inside of the house.......

Entry hall..

Time for mums!

Mom's been very busy weeding......everything!

This was all overgrown, like I said, Mom's been busy.  We really need to get some mulch this weekend...

Kitchen, I think I need a big rug right in the center, what do you think?

Kitchen again..

Kitchen again....

Living room, does anyone know where I can get a nice primitive dried flower wreath for over that fireplace??

Living room, I have since added some berry swags over the curtains to give it a bit of umph!

Living room looking into Mikes office...

There's a story behind this....we can never find a yardstick in the shop so I took care of that!!

Ollie enjoying the sun!!  He never strays far from  Mom when she's weeding...

Mom dyeing on the huge stove.  She loves it since it's so much faster and she can have 4 big pots going at a time!

Here are a few pictures of the inside of the house, but, if you are familiar with our old house you will notice that this one is very different.  It is a "warm" house with lots of wood and fall colors, but the tile floors in some of the rooms make an echo that I just can't get rid of and it makes it feel empty.  So, I am still tweaking.  It has been a bit of a challenge for me to decorate since I like a bit more primitive, but, it is very cozy.  I'd love any suggestions.  I am still looking for fabric for curtains in the sunroom and some throw rugs and a dried flower wreath for over the fireplace.  I would love a big bittersweet wreath.  If anyone knows where I can get one let me know.  
Also thought I'd throw in a pic of Mom dyeing wool.  That commercial stove is truly amazing.  At first it was a little intimidating but now we love it.  I had forgotten how fast gas cooks.
Keep checking back as I am churning out designs like you can't feels so good to be back to work!!

Until next time.....

About Me

Thank you very much for taking the time to read my blog. I am married and just entering the second phase of my life as a Army retiree's wife. My husband and I did 25+ years in the Army. He is now officially a retired Colonel and has just entered the civilian workforce and I am happily settled in our 1830 Stone house. I (along with my Mom) operate www.theoldtatteredflag and currently we are building a small shop in the back part of the house. We live in Northern NY, right near the Canadian border. I have two handsome sons and 2 puggles. Life is busy for us, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
