Yes, I do realize that it's two days before Halloween and I'm just getting around to putting anything even vaguely related to Halloween on my mantel. Remember my last Halloween Mantel? (More Here)

The real estate listing sheet for the French Farmhouse said that the "Laundry Room" was in the basement.
I thought, sure, no problem.
After all, it's probably got a window well or two to let in some sunlight.... right?

Just a quick hello to let you know that I'm still alive and that I continue to be amazed (and sometimes disgusted) by the things that I uncover here at the French Farmhouse.
Take for example, my dishwasher. Specifically, the inside of my dishwasher. How in the name of heaven does the inside of a dishwasher get this dirty?!

I did some decorating on the front porch of the French Farmhouse last week. To be completely transparent, I did it so that the neighbors can tell that someone actually lives here now and that it's safe for children to come to the door to sell things. Take for example, things like Girl Scout Cookies...

The first room on my long list of rooms that needed painting at the French Farmhouse was the kitchen. When we took possession of the house, the walls of the kitchen and the adjacent hall which leads to the back door and basement were painted a very dark red which reminded me of tomato paste....dark red and a little shiny.

Fall decorating continues this week at The French Farmhouse. I used a few more faux mushrooms (left over from my rustic fall grapevine mushroom wreath HERE to fill my vintage wood dough trough along with natural elements like moss and pine cones that I gathered from beneath one of the trees in my front yard.

Fall has arrived in Illinois. The days are sunny, the skies clear and blue and the leaves are just beginning to change. Last weekend was one of those perfect fall weekends....the temperatures were in the 70's and I was alone at the French Farm House....it was a perfect day for a road trip.
