Trying to decide on a logo option. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Designs by @leighmaxim just to clarify the whole play on it is that we are trying to have a simple life but our life is anything but simple so I'm not looking necessarily for what is the most simple logo but what is the most eye-catching
#greatfind I just scooped up these chairs off of Letgo. The gentleman I purchased them from told me he thought they were from the 70s which was fine with me since I was planning on painting them as part of my modern Farmhouse kitchen that I'm working towards. However once I looked underneath looks like these lovelies are from the 1920s #homerenovation#socalledsimplelife#furniturerehab#letgo#treasures
Flip to see the treasures I found in the fireplace!
I was rewarded for not giving up on my old friend.
The first is a ring the was under heaps of powdery black ash I was removing from between the old plaster and the hearth. #antiquejewelry
The bottle is from Dr. Wayt in Staunton. He was an assistant surgeon during the civil war. After he opened a medical practice and Pharmacy in Staunton on Beverly street. Obviously the previous home owners were patients. #civilwardoctor#waytandbrothers
The third is some kind of wooden trinket.
I also found numerous buttons and small bones and a piece of cloth.
Graesen is convinced the bottle contained poison and these are "remains" from the victim.........I feel a book coming on. #murdermysterynovel#whodoneit
These last are my progress with Clarence. (I felt he deserved a name.) #restoreclarence#savehistory#poormanshistory#socalledsimplelife
My newest project. In our 1870s house under the plaster was this old friend. So many people tell is to tear it out and to get rid of it but in the mortar I see the finger grooves of the people who put this chimney up almost a hundred and fifty years ago it pains me to think of ripping it out especially since to them it is creation is from the hands of some of first free people after the American Civil War and I can just imagine what this project meant to them to have their first very own home. A home that no one else could force them to do anything out of. So my restoration project begins. I will keep updates along the way. #oldspeakeasy#potashbrick#1870cabin#freedslavehome#touchthepast#socalledsimplelife
sometimes the bittersweet Part of raising your children is watching them spread their wings and fly on their own. My son has recently embraced his musical talent and is opening up to others and playing music live. I couldn't be prouder because that tells me somewhere along the line I've helped instill the confidence in him to believe in himself that's the best payback as a parent ever.
He will be playing tonight at Barren Ridge Vineyards from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. #parentattachment#socalledsimplelife #childhood#teenagers
