WELCOME, to my serendipitous blog! I am an artist, a writer, a mother, a wife, a collector, a yard-saler, a flea-marketing, auction-going lover of all things vintage and antique. My husband and I have been married for five years, and we live in a 160+ year old home that is listed on the historic register. We are slowly working on this grand old house and filling it with art, furniture, antiques and things that we love. Sometimes the going is slow, but we do love making this place into the home of our dreams. And she's quite a pretty lady! We juggle the ups and downs of living in an old, old house with our every day, hectic lives filled with cats, dogs, full-time jobs, and, most importantly, our nine-month old son. No day is typical around the Little Young House! I hope you'll make yourself a nice cup of tea, put your feet up and stay awhile at my blog. I'd love to get to know you!
ANYWAY, on to the good stuff! I AM GIVING AWAY A SPECIAL PRIZE (see below for details)! This giveaway is open to all active bloggers worldwide. Just leave a comment and make sure I have a way of contacting you if you should win. I'd also love to visit your blog, so please be sure to tell me how I can do that. I'll announce a winner on February 17, 2011.
WHAT WILL YOU WIN? Oh, you artists out there will love this! How about a box of old stamps, old stickers, old clips of art work snagged from old magazines and books...a box full of goodies that will help you create up a storm! Just looking through these things gets my creative juices flowing! I can just imagine all the things I could do with these wonderful old treasures.
Leave me a comment...that's all you have to do to enter! And I hope you'll stop by and visit with me again soon!
I am fortunate to live in a piece of history: a circa 1869 house that my husband and I ran as a bed and breakfast for several years until the birth of our son in 2010. While we miss sharing our house with the many guests who frequented our B&B, we are thankful to have the extra space for our growing family. We continue to restore the house in between our family time and our full time jobs (me in higher education and he in aerial mapping). We share the house with our sweet critters: two dogs and two cats, who seem to enjoy it as much as we do. This blog chronicles our lives, our love, our laughter, and the ongoing attempt at restoring a home in the midst of living our busy lives.
