Each year, the Bowmans host an open house to share the history of one of the oldest homes in the area.
The style is Plantation Plain, with two verandas on the front and a porch on the back.
There are so many neat details in this four room log home...
...huge stone steps flanked by hydrangeas on either side...
... I love the simple decoration above the picture...oops, sorry you can see my reflection.
You can see the owners have loving decorated the rooms in the primitive style of the 1800s.
This large multipurpose room is used as a kitchen, dining area, and a place for the spinning wheel.
The tables are so charming, with green chippy paint...I apologize for the quality of the photos. I kept hurriedly snapping pics, trying not to get the visitors in the shots.
I like this white china display over the kitchen fireplace...
...there are two upstairs bedrooms... this one is decorated as a child's room with a little table, chair and tea set, to the left of the bed.
In the bedroom across the hall, is a beautiful cradle, with a hand made coverlet and little rag rug beside it...
...the back porch is set up with a small table and chair for visitors to sign the guest book...
...if you need a cool drink of water, the well bucket and dipper are handy. Actually, the Bowmans had a table under a huge, old oak tree, with refreshments for visitors.
Afterwards, you might like to visit...
I hope you enjoyed the tour, and are having a great weekend.
Prayers for all who are in the paths of the fires in Colorado, and those with storms and power outages on the east coast.
Hugs and stay cool,
The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays
