Harvest [harv-vist] : verb - to gather; to reap; to gain.
Welcome to our Harvest House;
Named after a coffee can I found at a flea market a few months ago.
Today is moving day and we couldn't be more excited.
Three bedrooms, two baths, a clawfoot tub, front porch, root cellar, third floor studio, two fireplaces, pocket doors, gas stove, and hardwoods that creak. Sheesh.
We. Are. Blessed.
Happy Spring, brave ones!

Nina said...

Your home looks so wonderful! I grew up in a house very much like that in a historical town in North Carolina. It was built by a fireman in the early 1900's. It had a red tin roof. The floors creaked in a wonderful sort of way (but not so wonderful if you were trying to be sneaky) and my brother said all the doorknobs made a different sound - and he knew them all. Seeing the picture of the doorknob made me remember those wonderful old doorknobs in our house. Congratulations to both of you! I hope you create many happy memories there! :)
