Inside the Home
Welcome inside our home.
As promised, here are the shots of the living and dinning room as they were this morning. You’ll notice we have runners on top of the nicer carpets because keeping the house clean is a major job, especially when you are working both inside and outside most of the day. The curtains in both the living and dining room are second hand and the top valance is homemade from bed sheets stuffed with newspapers. The ottoman, chair and sofas are either second hand or found along side the road and we covered them with matching slipcovers. The end tables, dining room set and small curio cabinet are from my grandmother. All the lamps, dining room carpet and most of the decorative items are second hand or were given to us by our grandmother. The afghan on the sofa is hand crocheted.
In the middle of the living room you’ll notice a metal water bottle (used every day by each of us urban homesteaders) and stacks of seed catalogs, newspaper articles and more. The dining room table is not only used for eating but also packing Peddler’s Wagon orders, desk space and just about anything else.
So you can see the interior atmosphere is an eclectic mixture of “old fashion” and “used.”
