Making a Pig Fence

Making a Pig Fence

Ahhhh the piglets are seriously the cutest things ever and I love them and I have definitely spent way more time watching them than I should have/ imagined I would!  I wanted to take a minute and backtrack to share how David and I put in their pig fence. First of all we had to...

KuneKune Piglets!

I can’t believe I’m actually able to write a blog post on this because it doesn’t seem real… we just got piglets!  2 piglets!  2 Kune Kune piglets, to be exact! Welcome to the family, Tinkerbell and Mr. Smee! On Saturday, David and the kids and I drove to a Kune Kune pig breeder farm...

Hi! & Decorated Master Bedroom

Hi friends!  Goodness has it been a while since this blog saw any action.  I hope everyone’s enjoyed having winter in the springtime… I know we haven’t… we are soooooo ready for warmer weather and being able to be outside.  Hopefully today’s snow was the last for the year!  In the meantime we’ve been pretty...

Forest Style Playroom

I hope everyone is having a lovely start to their 2018! It’s –as always in our house– a work in progress, but I thought I’d share how our playroom is looking these days! First of all, above is what the room looked like when we bought the house.  It appears to have wood paneling but...

TGI2018!

Dear A Farmhouse Reborn Readers, Thank you for bearing with me as I made it through one heck of a year.  As I’m sure many of you are, I am excited about the idea of the fresh start that comes with the beginning of a new year.  2017 was without a doubt the hardest year...
Making Garlands Out of Greenery

Making Garlands Out of Greenery

Well, our little Wilson turned one this past weekend!  He was also dedicated at our church (kind of the equivalent to a baby’s baptism).  We had a lovely party for him with family coming from allllll over the place and I really felt the love for this little guy.  I drew upon that love today...
Finished Circular Driveway!!!

Finished Circular Driveway!!!

Well it certainly has been a while since I last wrote a blog post!  I hope everyone had a LOVELY Thanksgiving.  We were blessed with lots of family coming to Charlottesville and it was one of the best Thanksgivings I can remember.  Wilson is soooo happy and while we still have some hurdles we’re working...
Moving Boxwoods + Gravel Down!

Moving Boxwoods + Gravel Down!

Oh my goodness y’all look at this– the boxwoods have been moved, and now there is an EXIT to the circular driveway! Just to recap: here is the before layout and the after:   SO COOL!  The shape is actually taking place!  We weren’t home when the crew actually picked up and moved the boxwoods...
Mud Pit-- I Mean-- Driveway Update

Mud Pit– I Mean– Driveway Update

CHECK THIS OUT.  It’s our new mud pit!  (If you squint your eyes and use your imagination, you can see that it’s actually a new driveway in disguise.) It loops through the brick columns same as the old driveway did, but it instantly goes uphill.  We didn’t remove any of the old asphalt from the...
The Driveway It Is A Changin

The Driveway It Is A Changin

Progress report on the driveway! First thing first was to take up the brick walkway from the front porch to David’s office. Then after that the bricks were up, the heavy duty equipment moved in. And then… Something like 13 huge dumptruck loads of dirt got delivered to our driveway as you can start to...
Starting the New Driveway

Starting the New Driveway

So apparently the very first step to redoing a driveway is to come up with plans for a new driveway. TA DA!  I know you’re dying to see… so without further ado, here are the new plans: We decided we’re going to keep the entrance between the two brick columns but create a separate exit...
2 New Chickens!

2 New Chickens!

Hello!  Hope everyone is having a lovely Indian summer– we were all outside barefoot after dinner tonight, so amazing.  I’ve been having a hard time lately because yesterday we found out Wilson’s tongue has partially reattached, which explains why he doesn’t have the tongue mobility necessary to eat solid foods (they get stuck on the...
