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.

I’m feeling extremely grateful this morning that I have the opportunity to live my life on a farm. This farm is a dream come true for us. We don’t take it for granted. Yes, sometimes it’s hard to get out … Continue reading
Have you sprung your clocks ahead? Today we set our clocks one hour ahead to presumably save on daylight hours. I’ve never understood this concept. I think we should follow Florida’s lead and just leave time alone. Nature doesn’t follow … Continue reading

I was getting ready to head outside to do chores this morning when I noticed the sun streaming in through the windows. I love this time of day. When everything is new and the day is full of possibility. I … Continue reading
