The Mousiekin family are anxiously packing for their new adventure
in a home where Millie is certain her Great Great (times eight) Grandmousiekin
lived and wrote many great Romouse Novels!!

                 One Hundred and Fifty years of History...
                                      I want to learn EVERYTHING there is to know of it....

What an Awesome Honor to "Borrow and Pass"
this Blessed House through Time....


A Cobblestone Foundation...

Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD,                                                                                                                     
Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone,
a tried stone, a precious corner stone,
a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
                                                           Isaiah 28:16

The previous Owners used this Home to BLESS.....
And the Tenants have cared for and  LOVED this Home for 5 years...

Come take a walk through the Secret Magic places

A Secret Stream...

The Butterfly Nursery...

Black Walnuts for Dye...

An Old Wise Tree..

A Huckleberry Tree

The Barn/Garage
The Barn..

The Butt'ry

Closing Day!
 Be kindly affectionate to one another
with brotherly love, in honor giving
preference to one another
                               Romans 12:10

( Lovely Tenant, Former Owner's Sweet Parents, New owners,
and Dearest Former Owners= who all Love the Lord!)

September 1rst can not arrive fast enough

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


  1. *sigh* You've just closed on my dream house and property! Bless you - how delightful! Our town is celebrating 150 years this year and my birthday is September 1 - just sayin'! Your Mousekins are precious and I know they will find all the marvelous nooks and cranies full to the brim with history and mystery and stories of family life of bygone days! Congratulations!
    Miss Kathy


    The Mousekins will be perfectly at home, for look at the LAND and magical gardens they have to run around in! I can see they have all their affairs in order, as you do to...what fun this has been for YOU, for our dear Christie who is now in her cottage and for ME, being at HOME enjoying every wall and space for my musing!

    Come visit WHERE I MAKE MY LIFE....have FUN! BLESSINGS to you and yours, Anita

  3. Dear sweet Linnie,
    You have found your bliss...and what a blessing!!! We rejoice with those who rejoice!!
    Everything you said about it is true; and how excited are those sweet mousiekins?
    You will be in my thoughts and prayers, my dear kindred, as you prepare for this move. All the emotions are still fresh in my can't imagine it will ever get here..but this is the time to reflect as you pack...embracing the memories, cherishing them, and lovingly packing them away...readying for a wonderful future, a new chapter in the marvelous book of you and hubby's lives!
    Much much love..blessings and hugs,

  4. Ooh, Linnie, it's BEAUTIFUL! I'm so happy for you all, and know that the Lord will shine down His blessings upon you in your new home, and as you say a tearful goodbye to your old one.

    Thank you for sharing your sweet life with us, and may the Mousekins have many wonderful new adventures!



  5. This is beautiful! It is ment to be! The mousekins will have lots of adventures & stories, to be blogged for sure! love & Blessings your way...

  6. Your Moving???!!! How dare you! HeHe LOL
    No, I am very excited for you! I can not wait to come and stay with you for a while.

    I learned something about comments. Sometimes you have a hard time leaving a comment. Make sure when it takes you to the screen were you have to sign in again, you have the little box UNCHECKED, that says "stay signed in". I just tried it on another blog, and it worked!

    I love your new house and I LOVE you!! Talk soon :-)

  7. I am delighted for you, the house looks wonderful and I know you will have many happy years ahead of you - I have a feel for these things!
    Warm greeting from Wales and good luck for moving day!

  8. Linnie, This house will love you. You understand an old house, with its beauties and flaws, it's secrets and mysteries. You will surely contemplate the lives of those who walked those same floors. Just imagine all those distinct eras of this house's life span, the Civil War, the Victorians, the Edwardian's, the FLAPPERS and two World Wars! So many generations have filled the rooms, living lives so different from our own. And now it is your turn!
    I think it looks just marvelous. I love the woodland stream and the cobblestone foundation. May you and yours spend countless happy years in this new "olde" home!

  9. aghhhhh aghhhh I am screaming out of JOY lol!!! and jumping up and down ehehehe I am so super excited for you!! WOW that house is amazing!!! and I can't wait for September 1st either its my birthday hehehe I Will be praying that you have a wonderful move and transition into your new house where you will be blessed with new memories and much Joy ~Love Heather

  10. Could it be any more of a perfect place for you? Old homes have such stories ot tell, and now you will be able to add your own personal chapters.

    I look forward to seeing you personalize and decorate it.


  11. Dearest Linnie,
    It is just exquisite---perfection! I am so very happy for you! I can't wait to share 'move in day' with you!
    I am so excited you have been blessed with your dream house!
    All the very best good wishes and love,

  12. many congrats! Oh, what a dream home! I so pine for an old house. There will be so much to learn, you will be part of history. Just think of all who have dwelt in and loved that house :) how exciting!!

    I'm so sad you havent been able to post on the blogs! I'd tinkered with them and made them low level security-wise....Im wondering if perhaps you're running into that snag where blogger asks you to 'pick an ID" and you have to choose google, live journal, etc. Blogger is part of google, so you would choose google as your ID. try that next time and fingers crossed that it will work! I love visiting with you and dont want to miss any of your comments!~

  13. Linnie, congratulations on finding such a beautiful old home!!
    You will love it there, and I'm sure you can't wait for September to arrive lol!
    What a peaceful and pretty place to dream and create in :-)
    God is wonderfully good!!
    blessings to you..Trish

  14. Your new home looks very beautiful!All those undiscovered (new to you)places. I can see you sitting on that swing. Thanks for sharing all your lovely photos.

  15. Dear Linnie, Thank you so very much for the kind words you left on my blog. I am so glad to have found yours - I am now a follower! Your antique brick Greek Revival farmhouse is absolutely beautiful! Your furnishings remind me SO much of those at our farmhouse. What a blessing to have the assistance of your elderly mama to help with restoration! I have enjoyed researching a genealogy for all owners of our Schoharie County farmhouse - it was handed down through the same family from 1830 until 1958, when my husband's aunt and uncle purchased it! We inherited it 9 years ago; and it is still a work in progress since we only spend time there in the summer and fall. Be sure to click on the photo of the flag through the window on my blog's sidebar to see photos of the house. Blessings, Cassandra ♥♥♥
