"Happieness is An Old House"

                             .... And the BLESSINGS of FRIENDS... 

 Don't you just LOVE artwork that reveals something NEW
 each time you look at it?

That's how it is when you look at the art of Jeri Landers
 an  ARTIST, Author Illustrator, Scherenschnitt  extraordinaire!
What an honor to receive a wonderful
House Warming gift from Dear Jeri
of  Hopalong Hollow

(I just love how it fits in this perfect spot)
Thank You Sweet Jeri!!


I thought you would like to see how nice many of the antiques and furnishings
that we moved over here fit in our new "OLD" Home

The dinningset fits nicely
on a hand braided rug made by my Grandma
Omi (my Mommy's Mother)
(Just for me back when I was only a little girl for "someday" when I was to marry)

Some pieces from (my late Daddy's English Grandma)
and some from my German Grandma "Omi"
and my Dear late Mother in Law
 fit so nicely together on this built in cupboard

                  A China set that came over with my Mom from Berlin on the
                                              " Queen Mary" after WWII

A handmade table made by my Daddy's Father

A cradle made for my first Baby by my Daddy

Books on the built in bookshelf

...the Mousiekin Family are busy arranging these books!!!

A favorite drop-leaf table from my Daddy's Grandmother

and upstairs,

A corner cabinet Flea Market find with odds and ends,

 "Omi's" quilt

A braided rug that Mommy made

We are working on Mommy's guest room
(it took three coats to cover the dark navy blue ceiling)

The upstairs bathroom entrance

Some favorite spinning antiques

It was quite a job moving the Loom in!

An Amish made Cupboard

The favorite Crossstitch made by my Auntie Karin

My favorite pots

(still painting)

Thank you so much for sharing my joy
and delight!
Many many Blessings to you!
 Hugs and Love, Linnie
Hubby Bear and I have been spending much time lately
at the house that we are moving from,
bringing still more things and
getting it ready to sell.
We do not have Internet there
so I haven't been able to visit you much lately,
but I shall be catching up with you soon!!!
Beloved, I wish above all things 
                                                                                                               and be in health, even as thy soul prosper
 that thou mayest prosper
Do You Know JESUS?

The Old House
by Virginia (Ginny) Ellis 
"The old house awoke one morn,
And stretched from eave to eave,
He looked about his neighborhood,
And did not like what he perceived.
Up and down and cross the street,
All his old friends were gone,
Through the years, they'd disappeared,
Demolished and torn down.
He shook his chimney slightly,
With dismay and in despair,
It broke his heart to see
The newer houses rising there.
First one was built, and then another,
Soon a whole group that looked like clones,
Identical in style and size,
A row of postage stamp, small homes.
He was amazed at their construction,
Each built of steel, concrete,  and glass,
His aging shutters shuddered,
To see them go up so fast.
For the foundation of each house,
Cold, grey cement was poured,
Which was topped by sheets of plywood,
Unlike his handsome hardwood floors.".....

Meet the Neighbors!!

                                                        Hello! "Woolcome"!!

I thought you may want to grab a pair of Mud boots
(or your "wellies")
and come on outside and meet the neighbors
around our House! 

Sylvie can show the way

along with Ivy and Pixie


Charman will GUARD the

Oh, but first take a look at the lovely
House warming surprise I received!
 A Bee skep ornament from my Dear Friend Mary
at "An Historical Lady Blog"
(she and her Husband Adam would love to meet you)!

Let's go out and see what's past the back yard...

If we can walk for a bit, then turn around,
 you may be able to see the neighbor whom owns the
Corn Fields, and the eight hundred acres of Apple Orchards
and Forests.
 can you see the little speck?
Here let me zoom in with my camera

The Jamaican Corn-folk approves your visit!

 A Naughty Raccoon has stolen and eaten
some corn, but he is not interested in meeting any of us!!
The fallen Apples wish to be noticed though!
Walking for a while longer, the fragrance
of apples becomes enjoyably apparent

There are so many apples upon these trees that
 the branches are tired and can barely hold them!
The apple trees are looking forward to when the pickers will arrive!!

These little Queen Anne's lace are just so pretty all alone out in the orchard! 
 They are pleased that you have come to meet them!

At the end of the Orchard is the
Entrance to a Forest!

Come step into a forgotten place!

The Grape Vines are creating their own
 Garden Trellis for the Forestfolk!

 Many of the Treefolk are adorned in their best vine apparel!

"Madame Tree" adorned in her fury stole is standing very proper to greet you!

There seem to be places of residence on the
Forgotten  Forest Floor!

The Mousiekin Family are anxious to introduce themselves to
 to the residents of the of the Forgotten Forest
 They are directed to a place that they are invited to stay for a vacation.

They are looking quite forward to staying!!

But Missy is still curious if there are
 Fairies living in the
Stump Castle!

These Fungi prefer ONE
fallen tree.....
 maybe they heard it "fall"!

Mr Turkle the Turtle proudly shows off his tattoos before
he's off inviting you for a swim!!!
In the neighboring stream to the left of the house!

Well... I hope you enjoyed meeting my "new Neighbors"
 I certainly did!!
 Love and Hugs, Linnie
 And Go Outside and PLAY!!!

Sneak Peak:
Will the sink meant for the old Home front
work in the NEW HOME FRONT??

Hubby Bear said it's OK
 to order this Wallpaper for the
"Pepto Bismol pink" Room!!! 


  Beloved, I wish above all things 
and be in health, even as thy soul prosper
 that thou mayest prosper
Do You Know JESUS?
