After 21 years of living in a very small farming community, hubby and I found ourselves empty nesters and in a house (and yard) that were too big to keep up. We sold it, downsized and are now living in a much smaller and more manageable mid century home in a nearby town. All of our furnishings looked great in the big old farmhouse but out of place in this 1951 brick ranch. I will be posting tidbits (and photos) of this work-in-progress as we slowly change the decor, update the rooms and revamp the yard as time and finances allow. We are aiming for mid century modern (although I still have a fondness for pretty things) with a little Kitsch thrown in.
