Linen Closet

Remember this rose paper? This is the cupboard it is in. See the surrounding wall? Looks like those walls had the same paper plus many other layers, too! The previous renter was in the process of re-doing this wall but now it gets to be my job- some day!

Old houses are so fun! I counted 7 different layers of wall papers in my bedroom closet! Ha! This house has enough projects to last a life time!
I'm blogging from the library parking lot again! I plan on having a good long Internet sesion sometime between Monday and Wed. and then I'll get by to see all of you! I've so apreciated your comments since I feel a bit isolated without Interent! I'm still glad to be on the farm but checking email has been a part of my life for the past 20 plus years!
Our landlord is paying big bucks to get high speed internet to the farm! What a Godsend! We don't have a time estimate yet. They have to put up poles, towers, and all sorts of gizmos to make it work! I'll keep you posted.

Goodness gracious, what a precious blog! I love all your vintage pictures and that wonderful old farm house! You are very blessed! Don't you just love redoing old things and bringing new life to them?
I'm now following you on GFC and will be back to visit! Please stop by the farm and say hello when you get a chance! I'll look for your button and grab it. Would be honored if you grabbed mine!

What fun, but hard work you have ahead of you. I'm so glad you're getting internet service soon. I know how isolated you can feel without it. Come by and visit me when you can, I've got home projects going too. I repainted my fireplace this week and posted pictures yesterday.

Wow I'm impressed the landlord is going to all that expense for his rental. You lucked out there didn't you. Well I bet you'll end up having some fun with fixing up things in the house that don't cost too much as it is a rental or maybe the landlord would pay for them too? I know back when we rented we would try and get him to pay if possible.

It sounds like you have a really great landlord! I think most wouldn't care one bit whether you had internet or not. Thankfully it sounds like this guy realizes the importance of it!
There may be alot of projects in this house, but I think you're going to have fun with them, and really put your own stamp on this house, making it your home!
Happy Weekend!

I love old farm house. As a child growing up on several farms I lived in many big houses with lots of wall paper.. That was the in things then. Your landlord is very kind to see that you get high speed internet. I know I would miss mine.
