LIVING WELL ON LESS
“I am beginning to learn that it is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.”
― Laura Ingalls Wilder
I saw a piece on NBC who lives well on less than $20,000 (which is pretty close to what we get from living off our land and the produce sales) and it reminded me of our family and little house here in the city.
When you step into our 1917 home, folks often comment how nicely decorated and homey it is. Sis and I like to proudly tell them that practically nothing was purchased new. Yep, that's right, most of the furniture and such were given to us, purchased second-hand or picked up free from the side of the road.
Prompted by the news piece, I thought it be an opportune time to give you a little tour of the house highlighting re-purposed, recycled and reused items that make our house a home.
Note: Sorry for the watermarks -- these are NOT OUR PHOTOS but are by an independent photographer, so I had to make sure they didn't get used anywhere else.
