Today was a glorious day! The weather was perfect~hung lots of clothes out on the line, took the doggies for a walk, and thanks to Laurie, put some screens in. Nothing like fresh air blowing through your house!
I started thinking that I am a old/new kind of gal~I recently discovered a wonderful magazine called A Simple Life, the photography and articles are wonderful. I started looking around my "homestead"

old stone out front

new witch ball

Old bottles and new stained glass things

old stone step in our house

old well out back

old looking new stone trough

old door with new mushrooms

our old house

old stone porch (I love how it ripples)

old light in the living room.

old brick and steeple thingy

old attic where lots of bats live

old door bell

new old looking angel~old beehive bank and small crock

new witch plate

I'm working on some new designs with some old themes! Stay tuned~

I love the photos and the whole house, but I am going crazy over the concrete morels by the door! I would love to find some of those and will now be on a mission!
