We signed papers today. We are proud owners of 4.5 acres in East Texas. It has a 1680ft ranch house, pole barn, green house and lots and lots of trees. The kitchen is twice the size of our old kitchen. 3 bd, 2 bath. The stove is electric but doesn't have the smooth cook,top which I prefer. I love my cast iron.

I didn't mention it before because there were contingency issues with the first buyer. Lucky for us they backed out.

I will post pictures when I can. So Excited. Now moving our stuff for the second time this year. Arph!

Missouri is quite magical, isn't it? I'm from a very small town in central Missouri, and I grew up playing in the woods, and surrounded by beautiful farms. When I was a teen, I couldn't wait to move to the "big city". Now, I just want to go back to the country! I'm still in Missouri, so that's good enough for now.

Thanks everyone. I love vintage and second hand things. I don't feel as bad when new puppies chew them up. I lost two couches and a few pair of shoes. But rest assured the puppies never lost their homes or our love.

Stephanie, I love So. Missouri. My tias (aunties) lived there. I loved catching lightening bugs with my cousins in the summertime when we visited back when I was a youngin. I hope too you find a lovely place.

What a lovely place! I'm so very excited for you! I love the woods around your home. Makes it feel very secluded and cozy, doesn't it? Right now I live in the suburbs of Kansas City, but we are working on finding a place more towards southern Missouri, and I hope it's as lovely as yours!

This dining set is beautiful! How wonderful to have such nice in-laws. And thanks for the holler visit invite---and as Emmy Lou says---if wishes were fast trains to Texas---I'd ride--I'd ride--oh how I'd ride---LOL> Been through Texas in the 70's. I thought it was beautiful. And if you are near WV---as we hillbillies say--Come on down.

Hi Barbara,
We have been spending time with family. First December birthdays then Christmas and now New Years. I am tired.

But look what my pop in law and Momma Kathy bought for us for Christmas!






My FIL and his wife (not Hubby's mom) sends us money every year. Because of the new house they sent a bit more. We bought this on Offer Up. It is vintage but I love the shabby chic. It is strong and fits perfectly in our dining room. Six chairs and a leaf. So, if any of my farmgirl sisters in East Texas or from the Holler and anywhere else ever stop by I have a big table to share. I don't have a couch or sofa yet but I have this big beautiful table.

I love the chuck wagon dinner bell and the rockers are great. You are going to enjoy them while you are out enjoying the view and nature.

I love Halloween humor Nancy---anyway I think I was Lizzie Borden in a past life---almost sure of it---or have I been watching too many scary movies lately. Plus this is sure a scary, dark holler. LOL. Have great fun in your new house.

Ahhh!!!

I am so blessed. Spent the first night in our new home. Didn't realize how dark it gets in the country. When we got back to my MILs home today there was a package waiting for me from my bestie in Minnesota.

I opened it and found all kinds of goodies. At the bottom was something totally awesome. My BFF bought a chuck wagon dinner bell for me to put outside my hobby farm kitchen door. I wouldn't trade her in for the world. Besides, as my partner in crime she knows where I buried all the bodies. Can't have her blabbing that all over Facebook. Just kiddin' with some Halloween Humor.

Nancy what a wonderful gift. Happy rocking! Can't have too many rocking chairs on your beautiful front porch.

I had a neighbor who was a WWII war bride from England. She said "she would never understand Texans and their love of rocking chairs".

My sister in law and her husband surprised us yesterday with these rockers for a home warming gift. They came in a kit and my BIL built them. I was so touched I welled up but I bit my lip and gotta grip. I did give them both a huge big bear hug. I had to tease him though there was no bored out hole for my long neck beer bottle and no rack in the back for my Browning. I think I am going to stencil in gold my nick name "Tumbleweed".
