My sister, Sheri, has the most amazing home. She lives on a farm that is registered as a landmark with the Oklahoma Historical Society’s Centennial Farm and Ranch Program. Her husband’s family has owned and farmed this land for over 100 years. I think this is pretty amazing considering Oklahoma has only been a state since 1907.
In addition to farming, this property was also once an operating dairy farm. They now raise Black Angus beef cattle, alfalfa, wheat and sod grass.
Wouldn’t you just love to look out your kitchen window and see this kind of view? I would! Without a doubt!
A cast iron tub in the downstairs bath. Old, definitely, but probably not original to the house.
Notice how she used an outdoor urn to hold her towels. I love this idea!
The staircase is also original to the house. This staircase is only 28.5″ wide and turns as you reach the upstairs landing. This is quite narrow and can be a dilemma when choosing furniture for upstairs! Building code for stairs in a residential home today is 36″ wide. The staircase in my house is closer to 48″ wide.
Whether actual family heirlooms or found heirlooms, a space becomes so much more warm and inviting when we are able to use pieces with a history!
What are your favorite old pieces? Are they found items or passed down through your family?
