Our Farmhouse

"A place belongs forever to whoever claims it hardest...wrenches it from itself, shapes it, renders it, loves it so radically that he remakes it in his own image."
 -Joan Didion

I have finally put together a tour of my home...a work in progress. I wanted to provide this because when I peruse other blogs I always check out their Home Tour.

We moved into our home August 2005. We had just moved back to Maine after spending 20 years away (Hubby retired from the Air Force). This was the only house we looked at...we new immediately this was our home. 

I love the look of an old house, but I didn't want to spend a lot of time on renovation...I'd rather have a new house and work on making it look old.

That's where the name "Vintage Farmhouse" comes from. Our home is a new farmhouse style and the interiors are full of vintage items.
















































We have painted every wall at least once, moved every piece of furniture, and carefully hung every picture. I love color, collections, and an eclectic assortment of things.

Our home is always a work in progress, sometimes the changes happen daily. I'll update these images often and I thank you for visiting!
