one more post on the farm

Some people have expressed curiosity about the inside of the farmhouse. They wanted to see some of the old-timey details. So here are a few.

There's a nice old footed tub.

There is a whole upstairs with lots of potential. The stairs are a little steep.

Here's one of the bedrooms. Notice the interesting shape of the ceiling.

Here's a wonderful old stool. I wish I knew its history.

This darling little cabinet is hiding in the back of a pantry room, off the living room and near the kitchen. Nearby was another cabinet full of old recipes. So many things to explore... I am so mad at myself for forgetting to photograph the beautiful little antique crib. It was a gift from Jack's mother for the new baby, and it's just wonderful.

On a different note, here's a hole where the woodchucks live, high in the pasture area.

There are recently formed bales of hay in the pasture. The heifers were due to arrive any day to graze the pasture, to get good and fat for milking. They must be there by now. It was sad to say goodbye to the farm, but we will be back before too long.
