A farm house

With the sun shining outside, the light was beautiful inside this farm home.  We visited it the day last week, we went to the homeschooler’s day at Philip Foster Farm in Eagle Creek, in Oregon.

I love the house.  We usually end up coming in through the kitchen.  The stove is always with a fire, and there’s a lady cooking.  She’s making apple fritters.

She’s a beautiful lady.

The dining room area, with another stove on has been on too, to warm up the house.  At this time of the year I think it needs it.  Someone always tending it too.

Then we go to the bedroom on the first floor.  I think this is the first time they’ve had it open.

This quilt.  A handmade quilt of course.  The names of people who made it, embroidered.  It reminded me of the one great-grandma received for her wedding.

Then we headed up, in narrows stairs.

I think I could live here.  As it is.  It’s a little bigger than our house, but what I like the most is the feeling of the old house, the wood stove, to cook and to keep the house warm. And the view.  Oh yes, the view of all that space.

For now we’ll enjoy when we go visit.  And it’s great for that too.
