Little things mean a lot ….

Greetings from the Farmhouse !

 I just thought I'd share a few shots from around my home today.  I love little things !
                                                              Simple, Old Things...
                             Layered hangings - I absolutely love this look on my bedroom wall !
 These are all actually for sale in my Etsy Shop today, I must make more..just for myself !  I am thrilled with how they all turned out !
               A vintage gun oil can turned into a vase for sprigs of herbs.   I personalized this one :)
                I am in love with my life !  As messy as it is sometimes…. I cherish every minute of it.
                                                                 Happy Day !
                                   A collection of more , favorite,  little things on shelves over my desk.
                 One of my favorite possessions… this old dress.   I wish I 'd known the lady who wore it.


Thank you so much for visiting.   I must post more often. Seems I can't find the time for everything I want to do these days.    Wishing you a very happy and blessed week !

Happy, Happy, Etsy, Etsy !



Greetings from Cold and Snowy Kentucky !

I've been enjoying the day in the kitchen, nestled up to my little table by the wood stove while working on the computer all day !  My gosh, I feel so blessed to be able to work from home ! 
 I have a special announcement ,although, many of you on my mailing list know already…. …...


 a Farmhouse is now on ETSY !!!   Yeah !   I just got started over the weekend and I must say, I'm very happy with it.   It's such a great venue to show and sell my goods. AND So much easier than setting up and selling on my website that I just started last year.   I have been having a lot of trouble on
that website, especially hard to make it attractive for mobile viewers/shoppers.  I figured that this ETSY idea might just be the thing for me!  I've enjoyed shopping there for many years. Don't know why I've waited until now to give it a whirl . Silly me !
 So, hop on over if you so wish and check out what I have to offer.  I truly feel that I'll be able to keep it stocked ALMOST all the time, with my fresh vintage finds and handmades.   

 You just never know what you'll find from one day to the next.  If you like what I do, please add me to your Etsy favorites so that you'll know whenever I post new things.
Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit me !    I hope you are having a good winter and just think….  It's not much longer until SPRING !  Happy, Happy ! 
                                                                                                          Dru Ann

New Sellin' Space for Fine Farmhouse !

Hello My Friends ! 
Just thought I'd pop in and share a few pics of our little booth at the Vette City Antique Mall in Bowling Green, KY.  We just opened it a few weeks ago and are having a fun time with it !  I was thinking about the show we did at Highland Stables last month, and how we enjoyed chatting with so many local folks that didn't know about us.  Hey…if you ARE one of those local friends visiting this blog right now, I'd love to hear from you !  ( Since we handed out SO many cards with with this blogsite on them )  You can now shop FINE FARMHOUSE anytime during business hours at this wonderful mall.  Stop by when you can… Many wonderful goods can be found and Jeffs' furniture is there !  Much more to be added soon.   I hope to do well enough over the next little while…. would love to have a bigger space if we get a good response  :)  














There is still much to do to make this space just right… I'm actually struggling to figure out how to make an amazing space in such a narrow spot. But, it's good for now….. I'll just keep plugging at it
as I can !   Have a wonderful day !……………………Dru Ann   -  ms.druann@gmail.com

A big time at the Barn Sale !

We had the opportunity over the past weekend to be a part of a new Barnsale in our town.  Actually, right down the road from where we live !   It was Gypsy Moon Marketplace at Highland Stables and let me tell you…. It was awesome !    I can't wait until the next one in the spring ! 

 A pic of our stall almost finished…we added more goodies the next morning before we got mobbed !
 Jeff is building some awesome furniture.  We're so pleased at the response we got. This farmhouse cupboard has sold -  He'll be working on some custom orders plus new pieces soon.  I'm so proud and excited !
This is our new zinc top table that we are making… I'll get better pictures in a few days and share more with you soon.  We'll be opening a new space at a local Antique Mall later this week, so , we have much to do.    It's nice to be back to blogging and actually have some fun things to blog about !   ( smiles )…… Have a wonderful day and I'll be back soon……………………Dru Ann

Time for a cool change ….

HELLO THERE !


Back in March, I spent about 3 weeks on the couch with a bad round of the flu. There was whole lot of daydreaming during that time - wishing and wanting to do something new with my work.   Well, I have bounced back and….. YES , Daydreams do come true !  
Although I've dabbled in bags and jewelry before - I took some time to learn some new ways and techniques, and I must say, I'm very pleased with my results !   

Last week, the first batch of my "DirtBags" was introduced on my picturetrail site.  A line of rugged ~ vintage style ~ aged ~ waxed canvas bags/purses/pouches  adorned with fun "found" accessories.  The "Trinket Necklaces" are fun as well .

 SO very thrilled with the response !    My head is spinning with more ideas and I'm creating up a storm on more designs ~ Both bags and jewelry.   I just love working with all this stuff !  It's a nice change of pace from the same old things that I've made for so many years.   I haven't felt this inspired in many, many years !    
 Perhaps you'll like what I'm doing too …..  I will continue to create bears and other fitting goods as I go along, but, all with a whole new attitude ~ a cool change  !    ~ A new website is in the works too ~   right now, you can still visit me on the Cinnamon Creek picturetrail.   I'll let you know when the new site is up.
                         
Wishing you all a FABULOUS Day!
Thanks for stopping by and visiting

Farmhouse Bedroom

Yes, it's been a long time !  I won't go into any excuses, I've just been busy and blogging has been the last thing on my mind.  Spring is here in Southern Kentucky and I'm just having a good  'ol time working on the house and making lots of plans for it.  

Today, I just wanted to share my little bedroom.  I do love the clean, yet rustic look of all of it.  It just makes me happy !  I'm actually just beginning to decorate it.  As, many of the items you see in these pictures will be for sale on this evenings' website update.   I just figured , since I had all of these fun things to offer , why not set up a room and show it all off , right ?  

I just love little aged, white dresses and hanging putting things where least expected.

Why, yes….. doesn't everybody have pitchforks in their bedroom ?   ( smiles )

I've made these for years.   I've got a few made up and ready to go.

I love my simple life !

The desk was my Mommas' ~  I've always enjoyed displaying my favorite things on it.

Sweet vintage bottles with fun prints and labels.



Jeff just made my bed using old whitewashed fenceposts for the legs.  He made the heart too !  The bed cover came from Target.  I love the ragged look of it !

An old fan that we just found on a recent outing, A doll I just finished made from vintage cloth, oh, and elephant too !

Yep !

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit me at the farmhouse !   Be sure to stop by Cinnamon Creek tonight at 6:00 ( central time) for many new handmade and vintage offerings .  

ENJOY YOUR DAY  !
