Farmhouse Life

 

There is something so sweet, lovely and uncomplicated about 
farm house life.



Yes there are lots of chores, yet they seem like a pleasure when they
are done in a less hectic atmosphere.  A more gentle and pure way
of living.



So even if we live in the city or the suburbs, we can bring that quality of 
living into our own homes by striving to make our lives simple and 
less complicated.

I am linking up to these Friday Parties

Bentley ~ I see you peeking through the fence to see the neighbor's chickens.
Are you absolutely sure you would not like some of your own???

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  9. I loved being on the farm at Granny and Grandpa's. Such a wonderful simple time. I loved it when Granny and I would pack a picnic lunch to take to Grandpa and his partner, Cash, to the fields and we would all eat under a big shade tree. Such a great memory for me.
    Love and hugs, sister...
    Bentley, definitely think you should have a chickie friend!

  14. Yes, I agree! Many of my summers growing up were spent with my grandparents on their farm! I really learned how to work and so many other things I loved about the farm! Very lovely photographs! Thank you for visiting my blog! I'm a new followed.
