Welcome! I’m Teresa, the hen in a farmhouse nest. I was born in Canada and am now a US Citizen. I inhabit a wonky farmhouse with my husband, Brian, our dogs and parrots and a miniature pig. We also care for alpacas, ducks, chickens, a pair of geese, rabbits, goats, and a couple of barn cats.
Jane Austin once wrote, “There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort”. I have to agree. While I often daydream of visiting far off places, my heart longs to be at home. Whether I’m inside or outside, I can find plenty to keep me busy and content. I enjoy the French country decorating style, renovating (as time and budget allow), gardening, reading, creating, and blogging.
I hope to inspire you with simple farm living as we renovate and decorate our wonky farmhouse.

Some like it hot . . . not me. I prefer temperatures in the 70s and low 80s going into summer. Here where I live it’s been in the mid to high 90s for over a week. I just realized … Continue reading

We were privileged to host Prairie View Elementary School yesterday. It was a chilly, rainy day, but everyone enjoyed themselves anyway. We hosted two tours, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.
You may or may not have noticed that my blog is in a bit of a shambles. I’m at my wits end. I changed my hosting platform from one account to another (within the same company that shall not be … Continue reading
