What do you think?

Do you see the wall behind the couch? 
 I think it needs more then just a canvas.
I also want to add some tables to the room, one day!

I am thinking about putting some shiplap on that wall??  
 Maybe paint it a darker grey, like this wall below??

We would use 1x8's  instead of thin plywood.

I believe it will look great.   
Please let me know what you think!

Blessings from the Farmhouse.

Bringing Home the Bacon

 Our  daughter killed 3 wild hogs tonight while hunting for deer.  
She is quite the hunter, her hubby loves to hunt as well.  I believed she had a blast tonight.

Wild hogs and boar hogs in her area are a nuisance to their crops.
Boar hogs are very dangerous and can be mean.

She shot two of them as they were running,
You go girl!

She said "these three little piggies won't be saying
 wee wee wee all the way home anymore".  😃

She is a hoot!

O Christmas Tree

We have never been one who Black Friday shops.  We keep Christmas spending low and focus on the reason for the season.  Instead of shopping, we have made it our family tradition over the years to go to a Christmas Farm and cut down a tree.

Afterwards, we enjoy a nice lunch togetherthen upon returning to home, we decorate the tree; while
playing Christmas music and drinking hot chocolate. 

The girls decorated the tree , O it may not be magazine worthy...but to me it is perfect.
It's done by little hands, that have a very special place in my heart.  It's perfect!

The white roping was made by myself and the girls, we took white yard and crochet long chains in the place of ribbons.  We will be crocheting more this afternoon to finish the tree.  A little homemade touch to added to our tree.

I love these kinds of slow days in the middle of a busy Christmas season.  We keep Christmas simple and make it special with family time and traditions that will stay with our little girls forever.

It's about Jesus, it's about giving.

Act 20:35 I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.

Have a wonderful weekend with your family.

From our little farmhouse.

as we gather around the table; 
let us be thankful to the Lord 
for all our wonderful blessings.

I am so thankful to the Lord, how He has blessed us with wonderful health, keeping us safe , our home, my daughters and son (in-laws), our sweet grand children, my husband  job, food on our table and our wonderful church, that preaches us the truth.  There are so many more things I am so thankful for.

I am so thankful for you blog friends;  I have met so many wonderful ladies on here.   Your blog's have inspired me and encouraged my heart. Thank you for that.

We started a new family tradition early this year, each time we gather around our table. We have to tell 3 or 4 different things we are thankful for.  We can't repeat the ones we have said before. Not just at Thanksgiving, but every day all year long. We want our  family to have a thankful heart, a heart that loves others, and a heart to give.

O Give Thanks unto the Lord:
Call upon his name:
Make known his deeds among the people.
Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him:
Talk ye of all His wondrous works.
Glory ye in His Holy Name:
Let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord.
Seek the Lord, and his strength:
 Seek His face evermore.
Remember His marvellous work that he hath done; 
Psalm 105:1-5

From my Farmhouse to your homes have a Blessed and Wonderful Thanksgiving.
