We have been dreaming of our house in the country for some time now and it would seem that having your house for sale makes time go markedly slower. Our real estate agent described the process perfectly in a word: unnerving. The constant cleaning and waiting mixed with the February blahs is making us edgy to say the least.
We popped into view the house we have been fantasizing about for weeks now and were not disappointed by its character, history, and charm. Not to mention its surprising functionality as a family home!
Some of our favourite things include the 3.5 acres and free use of the surrounding 75 wooded acres with 20 acre pond, the 134 year old log cabin section with redone floors and foundation, the berries and fruit trees planted on the property. I also love that there is a site on the property upon which there were First Nations healing ceremonies preformed, three tame wolves were buried by a previous owner with a bison skull to protect them, and a trail called “Poppy’s Trail” on the adjoining acreage.

Sea Pottery from Rome, a chunk of amethyst + the Geode Dada couldn’t crack open despite his best efforts.

We made her birthday necklace together
|I found a handmade wooden barn at the local thrift store for $8.00 which inspired the gift of all these detailed and realistic farm animals which she ADORES.|
