Our Brick House


We thought we would share pictures of our home. Our home was built in 1860. We bought our home September 2004. We moved in the weekend of our 25th wedding anniversary. What a weekend it was..we drove with a caravan from NY to PA on Friday, arriving just as a hurricane decided to visit Central PA! Saturday morning family members arrived to help us unpack. Sunday Tim and I left for our anniversary trip to Williamsburg, VA for a WEEK...I wanted to go but then again I didn't. I wanted to stay home and unpack, but I am so happy we decided to stick with our plans. Tim and I had a wonderful time and we are hoping to go back again.

Check out the porches! We love them. This is the east side and the sunrises are beautiful especially from the upper porch! Oh I wish it was summer, the grass, trees and gardens look so drab. I will have to take pictures another time and show you how nice it looks when things are blooming.

I love the star! We have 4 of these on our home. I remember as a young girl driving by this home and seeing the stars, thinking how cool those stars were and now I am living in the house with the stars!

This is picture of the porch of the craft shop looking towards our home. When Tim and I have our Porch Sitting Time this is the porch we sit on.

This is our view from the porch. The famous tire swing...our nieces and nephews love this swing. In the field across the road we can watch deer, red-tailed hawks, and peaceful and you should see the mountain in the nice!

Hope you enjoyed the little tour of our home.
