The Farm Table

I am a very visual person.

I love visually appealing things to surround me in my everyday life and everyday activities.  If you have been around my blog long enough, then you know that fancy and sophisticated does not mean much to me.  Give me neutral and simple anytime, and I am happy.

When it comes to the area where my youngest and I do our school, simple suits us both just fine.  So glad that she likes her mama’s style.

This beautiful old farm table makes a great school desk for she and I both to sit at when we need to do things together.


Speaking of homeschooling…
We have homeschooled all three of our children.   Hard to believe we have already graduated two and are now on our last one.
What a gift to have been able to teach all of our kiddos at home.


I know, I know, it looks dirty, but it’s really not. 

That’s character, mom, I promise…



This 1898 diploma hangs as a focal point and reminds us of our goal at hand.  Graduation will come before we know it.




A great old crate holds our school books and this crate is pretty special to me.

Quick story…A friend of mine and myself were on the endless yardsale this past summer when I spotted this crate with my maiden name of Montgomery on it.  It actually had Montgomery Dairy on it.  My family had a dairy farm many years ago.  Now, it wasn’t named Montgomery Dairy but that didn’t matter.  I loved it and wanted it.  I have to say it was pricier than most things I buy like this, but under the circumstance of what it said and that my dad at that time was very sick and in the hospital, I knew I couldn’t pass it up.  So thankful I bought it as my dad passed away a few months later. 

What a special reminder.



The seat I sit on was a gift from my precious friend Linsey at Brave Hearted Beauty for helping her with a barn sale several years ago.


And, Faith’s seat is filled with a great pillow from my sweet, funny friend Beth at Olde Tyme Marketplace.


A visually appealing spot to do our school work every day makes this teacher a happy teacher.

I hope you are all doing great.

Are you as ready for spring as I am?  I usually don’t like rushing the seasons, but this year, I’m ready for winter to be over.

Blessings to you all and thanks for stopping by.

I homeschool my son and we "have school" in the dining room. How I would LOVE to redecorate but it's not in the budget:) Your space is lovely and serene, a great place for peaceful concentration. I also stash his books in a few bins on the floor. Like yours better though:)
