A First Post for a New Adventure

 
Here are two first photos,  of my "new" old home.
On this blog you will follow my progress,
 as I try to renovate a 1930's craftsman bungalow.
 
I've moved twice since I first sold the farm.
 
First I tried Das Kleine Haus...a beautiful 1880's folk Victorian.
It was a lovely house, but just didn't fit my lifestyle.
 
To tell you the truth,
I think I was grieving about the move from the farm.
 Even though I loved the farm, it became too much work for me.
 
Next, I tried living closer to family for a while.
You may remember Meggie's Cottage on the edge of a Forest.
 But again, it just didn't feel right. I was feeling very displaced.
This is why I chose to move back to the prairie.
 
Meggie on the Prairie blog will live on....
I will continue to post on it, showing you, my dear readers,
small glimpses of small town living, on the prairie.
 
 
This blog will be devoted to my bungalow.
I thought it deserved a separate blog.
 
I know this is where I belong.
I am happy...
Meggie Mac

    1. Thanks, Christina.....the photos won't always show a completed project. This house will take a lot of work. As you can see in the first photo, I caught in the mirror reflection, the place where I stopped painting.

    1. I have boxed and moved those lamps many times to a new home. The larger one is very old and heavy. It is loved by me, that it usually rides in the front seat when I move it. Thanks for your comment.

  6. I'm glad to read that you are feeling more settled.
    John and I love our bungalow; even though we hadn't set out to buy one, almost every property we viewed was one!
