Our Wall Project

When we first built our home, we built a wall between the kitchen and the living room, because we felt that we needed a place for a fireplace one day. 

After a while when the built-in fireplace didn't happen, we wanted to open up these two rooms and we removed the wall.
After we removed the wall, we found out that the flooring
was discontinued, and the hole in the floor sat for 4 years.
We did save the left over flooring but, it wasn't enough. About
a 1/3 of the flooring would needed to be removed to keep the pattern.

  I really wanted to keep the open look and this is what we came up with.  

We put the wall back and added a large glass window with grids.  The lower wall is nickle-gap ship lap. It cost more than we first thought it would, but it was cheaper than replacing the entire flooring.

It allowed the two rooms to be open while adding character to our home and it allows nature lighting into each room.  We love how it turned out!!

  I can't wait to get new cabinets in the kitchen and windows across the entire back wall. I am not sure when it will happen, but it is on the list to change!


This single-pane glass was custom-made and so was the wood grids that are removable . I will not be removing them to clean because of how fragile they are.

 It wasn't an easy project to do, because of handling the large glass. So, thankful the project is finished.

Let me know what you think!

Winter may be traveling this way they say
with its bitter cold winds and threats of snow.

Come what may,
I will be snuggled in our farmhouse with
a cup of hot tea, good books,  warm blankets
and dreaming of Spring.

My Word For The Year

 I have chosen the word intentionally because that is what I want each day to be in my daily life.

Intentionally living life slow and keeping it simple
Intentionally living daily in JOY
Intentionally loving my family and others
Intentionally being thankful
Intentionally getting closer to my Lord
Intentionally making a our home a haven
Intentionally serving others
Intentionally giving
Intentionally embracing each day ~focus on one day at a time.


Intentionally live in today!

Matthew 6:34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.

Every moment in every day is a gift from God. Intentionally live it with a thankful heart, with much love, with much hope, with a giving heart, with joy by giving Him worship and praise for each day He has giving us.  Intentionally.

Do you have a new word?

Simple Fall Decor

 I have purged all my old fall decor, and my goal is to keep my fall decor simple, light, and inexpensive. The pumpkin on the end table and the plaid blanket scarf came from Target dollar section.  I am in the process of collecting pillow covers  ~ all the pillows will stay in place and I just change the cover for a new look. No more storing pillows.  Living light and simple.

Wishing you the loveliest soon to be fall days🍁
