Welcome! I’m Teresa . . . the hen in Hen in a Farmhouse Nest.
I’m a Canadian living in the United States who wishes she lived in England. 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 decorating, 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; with recipes and projects, and thrift store finds.
So, come on up on my front porch and make yourself comfortable as I offer you a cup of tea and some of Brian’s homemade chocolate chip cookies and let’s chat for awhile.

I made it out alive! I know I’m being overly dramatic, but to say I dislike our old farmhouse basement would be an understatement. Because I dislike it so much, whenever I have to go down to put something away … 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
