The Days Of July Have Been Filled With These...

Tic Tock
Sweeping the clock
She circles
As seconds slip by...

Where the time goes?
(Nobody knows)
It simply just vanishes, flies...

Here's a peek at where my seconds of July
have seemed to fly off to!

How about you? What have you been doing
with your seconds of July?!

Progress on the kitchen-porch painting! Yay!

Spot prime - check!
Prime coat - check!
Heavy duty porch paint in gray - (mostly) check!

Thinking I may actually finish this project? Check! (mostly, lol)

Project: kitch-porch

We refer to it as the kitch-porch because we've never been certain or able to unearth its history.
The floor slopes a bit as tho it once was a back porch to the fields.
It's been windowed in for many years but may have once had only columns.
All hints it was a porch.
But it also has a stove vent access port cut into wall.
Once upon a time it had lino over the floorboards.
It's directly off the kitchen.
Hints it was a summer kitchen.

I suppose the history & story are lost to time.
No matter what it was much TLC and rehab required! lol
The real fun is finding the right pieces of furniture, accessories etc
(can't wait to share those steps & images here with you)!

For now I'll leave you with my
the floorboards image
Yes, a lot of rehab! lol

Stars & Stripes a la Farm

Beautiful earth warming life growing sun the last few days....

Out strolling the land, camera in hand
I spied parts of our flag
(in green and yellow
of corn & stella)

Happy (farmhouse) 4th of July!
