Welcome and come on in! The threshold of the front door to the main house is a large marble slab, beautifully worn for 200+ years. A threshold like this was not common in the 1800s but reserved for a person of great status or importance. John Walton, the owner of the property and builder of most of the structure we now call home was from a prominent family at the time. Another feature that shows Mr. Walton’s status is the arced doorway (pic to come, must clean the cobwebs away first 🕸). This wide planked wood floors are original to the home and creaky does not adequately describe their noise. There is no sneaking up on anyone in this house. .

Originally a farm house on 210 acres at the foot of the Dandenong Ranges, then a private residence and now (since 1977) home to the Knox Historical Society.  This pre-federation Victorian era home dates from 1899 and was the original residence of Swedish immigrant, Ephraim Hansen.

It has been 3 years since my husband and I purchased this beautiful property. What a journey it was to move here from the Pacific Northwest. 
At the time we had 2 children, ages 3 and 4. Both kiddos and I (plus 1 very old pup) drove across the country in 6 days! My husband was stationed in Virginia at the time and was unable to take the trip with us. 
After that cross country trip I realized I could accomplish most anything. 
My only memory of Montana was the little one crying until she got sick. 🤮 Then somehow we entered and exited Iowa twice. During those times of stress I kept thinking of the beautiful home we were driving to and the life we could build there. 
The look on the girl’s faces when they saw their new home is a memory I will never forget.
This picture was taken 3 years ago today... that is my little girl at the time (who is now the middle child) standing on the front steps of the home she will grow up in. 😍 .

The beauty of brick! This brick floor is located in Grandma’s 👵🏼 cottage living room. 
The main house also has a brick floor identical to this one in the family room. 
I suspect they were installed in the early 1900s when the property was the Huntingdon Valley Hunt as it would be durable for the hounds and riders. 
Our neighbor who lives in an original cottage that was also a part of the property has wide planked pegged wood floors 😍 (next time I am over there I will snap a pic for you all). #brickfloor #brickfloors #brickflooring #stonehouse #stonefarmhouse #stonehouserevival #farmhouse #farmhousehome #historicfarmhouse #historichomes #americanhistorichomes #woodpeckerhillhideaway #woodpeckerhillhideawayhomestead

I love pretty baskets for fall decorating! All shapes and sizes and colors! Now to start pulling mine out and filling them with pretty pumpkins! Oh yeah, and bring on the fall weather.
Summer heat... I’m so done with you! 🥵

Doesn’t this look like a painting by van Gogh??? This is what is left of my sunflower 🌻 crop after the darn squirrels 🐿 had their way. 
Into a paper bag they go and with any luck we will have seeds-a-plenty. .

Hay cut and raking @lanternfarmstn ... baling is next. A beautiful sight on the farm.

Hay cut and raking @lanternfarmstn ... baling is next. A beautiful sight on the farm.

Can you smell the phlox??? They are in full bloom here at the homestead. 
These are blooming in Grandma’s 👵🏼 cottage garden. 
Just last month we gave this space a makeover and made it more accessible for Grandma by taking out the grass and haggard brick pathway. With the help of our landscaper extraordinaire the sod was removed and ground leveled off. Then in the same manner we finished off the kitchen garden; we used fill rock then landscaping fabric and finished it off with my favorite PEA GRAVEL ❤️ Seriously, it’s a love affair. The boarder stones we used are seen throughout the property. As for the pea gravel my landscaper mixes two color varieties; per my request because the light is too light and the dark is too dark. Now that I type this he must think I am a real pill 🤦🏻‍♀️. But he keeps coming back so I guess I can not be all that bad. 
Grandma added the archway and for her birthday this year we are buying her a metal garden gazebo she can grow wisteria on. I can picture her there now sitting under the wisteria drinking her coffee and sketching. 🥰 .

Some details of the main staircase we use everyday.
I have spent significant time exploring the home and property’s history. 
The most notable is John Walton who purchased the home from the Boileau family in the early 1800s. He owned and operated a cider mill here and named it “Woodpecker Hill”. .
.
.
.
I am currently digging deeper into David Newport who also owned the property in the 1800s. He was a notable writer and encouraged equality during the Civil War. After the war he was appointed to be the tax collector for Montgomery and Lehigh counties by President Abraham Lincoln. 
To think that someone who lived here had such a close connection to President Lincoln amazes me. This house has seen and heard so many important times in our country’s history.

As the season is coming to an end for most of the plants in my kitchen garden I thought looking back at all of the hard work that went  into creating it would be fun! 
There are currently 10 raised beds, all but 1 measure 3x6 foot. They are spaced 2.5 foot apart (so glad I was talked into this by my landscaper; I originally thought 1.5 feet would have been enough🤷🏻‍♀️). The fence was a necessity because we have very prolific deer that live in the wooded area across our creek bed. They frequent our land often for tasty treats (which are usually provided by my husband 🍎). There are 2 gates adjacent to each other and the back door to the kitchen leads into the garden, which has to be my favorite part. When I am cooking I can send one of the girls out to pick whatever is needed. 
Our cat enjoys the freedom of being outside and we enjoy not having to chase her around the property like some sick game of Tom and Jerry. 
As far as the layering of materials to prep the garden we used fill rock to even the space out and then a layer of heavy breathable plastic (lets the water drain away but prevents weeds from growing up) and then pea gravel layered 4-5 inches thick. 
I LOVE pea gravel. It is so useful, looks amazing, easy maintenance, and has a nice crunch when walked upon. We have used it in several areas of outdoor space and I just can’t stop, I have endless plans for more pea gravel (there is even a pile on my driveway right now). The space prior to the kitchen garden was this handmade patio out of flat stone. Each and every stone was removed by my husband as I was conveniently heavily pregnant during the removal process 🤰🏻 (could not have planned that better). .
.
.
I had a rough day at the home improvements happening in the classroom. The painting is so close to being done but I am only able to work on it after the kiddos are in bed so it is a slow process. It is frustrating to being so close but crawling to get there. Plans are to start painting the floor this weekend when Grandma 👵🏼 can assist in the childcare.
I really needed this post because it reminds me of all of the amazing things we have accomplish since moving in 3 short years ago.

31, that’s 31 steps that my family and I climb and descend numerous times per day. This is the main staircase; we also have the “death trap” stairs that we do occasionally have to use but avoid when possible. Both sets of stair have original wood and wood railings. There is also handsome woodworking details including acorn finials. 🐿 Which is fitting because we have 3 pin oaks that are each over 100 years old. #stonehouse #stonehouserevival #stonefarmhouse #historicfarmhouse #historichomes #historicproperties #uppermorelandpa #montgomerycountypa #livinginpa #woodpeckerhillhideaway #woodpeckerhillhideawayhomestead

I’m out working in the yard and realized I never showed you my sons handiwork. My children were playing outside one day and one of the boys thought that their fort needed a door. Can you spot it? Swipe 👈 if you need help! We were so proud of him. 😬

Back road exploring this week in southeast Tennessee!

Back road exploring this week in southeast Tennessee!

I wish this post was declaring, “We’re the new owners of ‘Sunnyside’!” ... but, sadly, it’s not. I’ve ADORED this home for over 15 years and it was finally listed for sale. It’s never been for sale. Ever. It’s been in the same family for 7 generations. ❤️ It’s right up the street from us and tucked away from suburbia... If you didn’t know it was there, you wouldn’t know it was there. Just a magical piece of local history. 
My husband took me to look at it last week, in hopes that it could possibly be reality for us. Sadly, it’s in pretty bad shape inside and requires much more than we’re capable of giving it. I’m letting my personal dream go, but I’m still hoping someone can bring this beauty back to her full glory. I mean, she’s a STUNNER... right?! That porch 🥰
Swipe to see the adorable and amusing wallpaper that’s hanging in the master bath. If I can’t have the house, can I get this paper for my current home??? 🐬 
If you’re still reading this, you deserve an award 😂

@cheapoldhouses I nominate this one for “save this house!”

If I can’t have the house, can I get this paper for my current home??? 🐬 If you’re still reading this, you deserve an award 😂 . @cheapoldhouses I nominate this one for “save this house!” . . #farmhouse #savethishouse #historicfarmhouse #sunnyside #fairfaxcounty #historicvirginia #historicfairfaxcounty #centrevilleva #iwantitsobad #farmhousegoals #vintagewallpaper

Celebrating five years of owning our dream home today! Walnut Grove Farmette was everything we were wanting and more. This place has become the best creative outlet for me and I love pouring my heart and soul into making it whole again. Here's to (at least) 55 more years here!!

Vintage art find: An original watercolour painting signed M. Drain and dated '89. 
The subject is an attractive whitewashed Northern Irish farmhouse and barns standing proud on rugged farmland and set against an atmospheric sky. There are some streaks of rain beginning to fall and an old wooden turf cart is centrally placed in the composition, symbolising the history of the land.

The picture was framed in Holywood, County Down so this old family farm may be located in the nearby countryside or even be one of the historic properties preserved at the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum at Cultra. ...........................................

... I’ve been asked by a few, ‘how’s the kitchen Reno going?’, well Rome was not built in a day!! As they say 😀
.

Where am I up to? 
Well there’s still green walls, so no painting yet... but they’ve been washed, this slab wall hasn’t, it’s next up for the wipe down. On the other side of those slabs was a mess, because the sand & water blasted through any small space present, but it’s now looking pearly white around there 😃... the ceiling needs a good scrub and so to inside one more pantry cupboard.. but I’m happy how it’s cleaning up, just wish I could work faster 🤨

I’m working my way through catching this page up to current day. Back in this monsoon of a spring, we lost a few pieces of steel off the barn roof. Oh yeah, have I mentioned the barn that was built in 1873 and faces the house?😍 Like everything else around here, it was in need of some love. Replacing the roof may have temporarily paused the inside progress but it gave us some awesome photo ops...I’m just glad Zane won’t have to climb up there ever again (hopefully). Here comes another Victoria vision: (I might make this a thing) if you notice, almost all modern steel roofs are standing seam (modern industrial) or R-panel (supposedly replacing old style) where the design is rib, flat, rib, flat, etc., (to be technical😂) and are also typically painted. Old galvanized corrugated roofing (rippled) is not preferred any more and I’m not quite sure why. Could be the price, could be it is more susceptible to rust, don’t know. I, however, prefer the old fashioned look. It took some time but we found a company that deals with thicker “galvalume” (for preservation) corrugated but I’m so glad we searched and that Zane puts up with my visions. Let there be rust🙌🏻

The last treasure from gutting our future dining room was being introduced to Jay N. Steele. We found his name on the back of a piece of baseboard. He built our house in 1900 and was the coolest dude ever, well at least in my mind. (You’ll find out why in future posts)

I learned from @farmhousevernacular that around the turn of the 20th century, machines to mass produce detailed wood pieces could be transported to small lumber yards, making these pieces available to rural America. This explains the tall gorgeous baseboards and detailed Victorian staircases mixed in to otherwise traditional farmhouses. I also support her theory that Jay’s name was written on the back of a baseboard along with the town for use as a shipping address. Pretty cool.

I don’t let many people into my space (aka my home.) Partially because I’m not home often, but mostly because I live in a constant construction zone. Fixer-uppers are fun until you actually live in them!🙈 We really have made a ton of progress and I think I wind up stressing about things that other people don’t even see. 🤷‍♀️ I definitely need to let more people in and hopefully if I commit to sharing more photos/videos then it will light a new fire under our booties to complete this beautiful historic farmhouse of ours!! ❤️🏡 #fixerupper #diy #pinitco #farmhousestyle #southernhomesandgardens #sharemore #homegirlslovehomedecor #historicfarmhouse

The vanishing cellar door... in November 2016 we did a huge renovation to the 3rd floor in the main house. Along with that I snuck in a facelift to our dining room. On the top of my list was removing an old door that lead to nowhere. It was originally the entrance to our cellar but after plumbing was installed and a bathroom was created on the other side of said door and under our main staircase it no longer had a function and out it had to come. Swipe to time travel back to when the cellar door existed. The contractors we used for this project had to recreate the chair rail and baseboard trims by combining different pieces as the originals are no longer in production, you can see where they are joined but I am pretty happy with how they match up. #farmhouse #farmhousehome #farmhouserenovation #historichomes #historicfarmhouse #diningroom #diningroomredo #woodpeckerhillhideaway #woodpeckerhillhideawayhomestead #seriousgraypaint

I have a dream...that involves an old historic white farmhouse, a rope swing on an oak tree, freshly picked wildflowers on the kitchen table, a house filled with the smell of apple pies baking in the oven, and ball jars filled with lightening bugs caught from the night before. 🌾
Last week I had the extreme pleasure of exploring this old beauty.  The Cox house is the first and oldest house built in Orland Park from 1880!! Named after is owner and builder, Harry A. Cox, a farmer, carpenter, and the town's third mayor. He and his wife raised six children here.  The inside of this house is absolutely gorgeous and extensively renovated complete with hidden passageways and nooks for endless hide-and-seek games, and the garage is what used to be the old barn. I walked through every room with my heart eyes sparkling! 😍 Good news, it's for sale.  Bad news, this is not my new farmhouse, but good news for my kids because they weren't too keen on having to tell people they live in the Harry Cox house. 🤷😂 #agirlcandream #neverstopdreaming #historichomes #historicfarmhouse #oldwhitehouse #perservinghistory #midwesternfarms #orlandparkillinois #historicalsociety #oldfashionedgirl #harrycoxhouse

The harsh winter killed the beautiful pink roses that used to be at the base of the pillars for many years. The petunias are standing in this summer while I decide what I want to plant as permanent replacements.

I’m sure y’all know by now that have a bit of an obsession with butlers pantry’s. Especially when it’s a rustic butlers pantry in an 1890s townhome featuring the zio and sons x clé tile collection! My heart is melting just a tad 😍 Make sure you head to cletile.com to check out this collection in the Moroccan sea salt and weathered white color! It will fulfill all your rustic farmhouse dreams! Who else has pantry envy right now?🙋🏻‍♀️

Goal this week... finish painting the doors and work on the trim around the door. If this shot makes all the angles in here look wonky, it’s because they actually are 😜 #crookedoldhouses

Can you smell them? Fabulous lilac smell at @lanternfarmstn !

Can you smell them? Fabulous lilac smell at @lanternfarmstn !

It’s here! The new issue of @edibleboston has my piece on @ufiboston and the Fowler Clark Epstein Farm in Mattapan. I first learned about this incredibly unique property years ago when I worked for @historicbostoninc - though it was a very different place then. Overgrown and vacant, there was a real danger of losing Mattapan’s oldest building to development. Now, thanks to HBI, UFI, @trustforpublicland, and @nbssboston, it’s a thriving working farm, serving as a hub for urban farming, education, and community. They also hold a great farm stand on Friday afternoons. Thank you @sarahblackburn for the opportunity and @adamdetour for taking such stunning photos.

It’s here! The new issue of @edibleboston has my piece on @ufiboston and the Fowler Clark Epstein Farm in Mattapan. I first learned about this incredibly unique property years ago when I worked for @historicbostoninc - though it was a very different place then. Overgrown and vacant, there was a real danger of losing Mattapan’s oldest building to development. Now, thanks to HBI, UFI, @trustforpublicland, and @nbssboston, it’s a thriving working farm, serving as a hub for urban farming, education, and community. They also hold a great farm stand on Friday afternoons. Thank you @sarahblackburn for the opportunity and @adamdetour for taking such stunning photos.
