My Ultimate Farmhouse





Bonjour et Bienvenue `a My Little Paris

I'm daydreaming..............about my farmhouse....it's big and old, something a bit "sprawlly" with an inviting front porch and veranda, a sun room (aka conservatory), a butler's pantry (sans the butler of course), a warm, welcoming kitchen and plenty of room for all my stuff and lots of guests. I know to some of my more practical readers that sounds like a bit much............but any of you that know me, know that I really don't have a practical bone in my body lol...........and I love to let my imagination just run wild.  

I am, as always, longing for the "feeling" I'll have when I'm in"my farmhouse". That good feeling, of warmth and comfort, that surety of shelter and security.........of family and friends and good food. Of quiet, and, when I want it, of not so quiet. I dream of experiencing the seasons there..........crisp winter days and cozy, warm evenings.........bright sweet scented spring days..........the sultry, still, long days of summer.........and the mellow, smoky afternoons of autumn...........my favorite. I think of being there during thunderstorms..........of bonfires, of cats in the barn, dogs in the yard, maybe even a few chickens...........fresh eggs..........a horse.....or two.........miniature goats.........really, anything's possible.


I think too, there should be lots of nooks and crannys in my farmhouse........hidey holes, window seats and bookshelves .  Both my grandboys and I would love to have little places to hide out, to read, to play...........and  fireplaces...... in the kitchen would be divine....I remember at the farm, the kitchen often had a couch in it, and if not, everyone just sat around the table and visited..........I'd love to have a china cupboard (obviously), a large cupboard or little room with glass doors so I can see my china, and so it's easy and convenient to use all the time. A sleeping porch, off the second floor hallway would be a nice touch.............imagine falling asleep in the fresh air, listening to the crickets, waking up with the sun, enjoying that first cup of coffee back under the covers ........and............

Now I'm thinking perhaps I should be getting a second/third/fourth job lol......but what's life without dreams.............

As always
