The farmers wife – was going over her very long list of things to ask me about – mostly things like – do you want this or that. There is a LOOOONG list of things they are leaving – talk about being blessed coming and going!!! Furniture, lawn chairs, sports equipment, cabinets, garden stuff, clocks, pillows, bedding, carpets, curtains and on-and-on!
On our travels through the house to look at all the things she wanted to show me she stopped at a closet upstairs and I nearly stopped breathing. The inside of the closet is wallpapered in the most beautiful wallpaper I have ever seen – huge cabbage roses on a light yellow background. It was similar to but much nicer than the wallpaper I used in our master bedroom here in the city.
I coulda cried.
Number 11 on my list: One room with roses on the wallpaper.
Best part?? She bought enough to paper the whole upstairs and is leaving me the rolls. When we get the addition done I will paper one wall of our master bedroom in roses – again.

I am a mom to many and a wife to my best friend. We live on 10 acres of heaven on a small farm that needs lots of work and will keep us busy for years! We love people coming to visit, animals and the peace and quiet that you can only appreciate after living in the city for 20 years. I love to write about our adventures in homesteading, country living, food storage, canning and emergency preparedness.
