BEGINNING TRADITIONS ~ A COUNTRY FARMHOUSE

I was so thrilled to see the home of fellow blogger Trina Burke and husband Mike, and their two beautiful twins, a boy and a girl, published in the December issue of Country Living. I can remember when the Burke’s brought their two bundles of joy home last Christmas!

The Burkes’ Oregon home sits on seven acres of farmland, and the renovation of the century old farmhouse was five years in the making.  Amazingly enough the home was ready just in time for the birth of the Burke's tiny darlings. 

Trina decorates with a palette of white, adding minimum color here and there.  All of the furnishings are antiques, acquired by Trina after she graduated from college.  She has also collected beautiful antique accessories, including her grandmother’s silver plate flatware. 

Trish’s blog, A Country Farmhouse, is a favorite of mine.  I hope that you will visit, starting at the beginning, so that you can share the last year with this beautiful family.  The article in the December issue of Country Living is a must read.  There is just not enough room here to describe this lovely home and its family.  ENJOY!
