Christmas Day at the Farm

Hello everyone and Happy Boxing Day!  Yesterday we hosted a small family dinner at the farm and while I have finally got my camera back I havent had much time to play with it.  I do have some quick photos to share with you.

We have been experiencing unseasonably warm temperatures for this time of year.  HIgh winds and rains have been the order of business for this past week with yesterday starting out as very stormy indeed.

A view over the barn at breakfast time.

By early afternoon the sheep were out and about, grazing in the field.

I have previously mentioned that last year we undertook a major renovation of our 1850s stone farmhouse.  We are still working on finishing the interior.  This is part of our new dining room.  The stone wall was the exterior of our old house and we are so excited to have been able to incorporate it into the new construction.  The lamp was a vintage find at a thrift store. 

The picket fence is supposed to prevent the dogs and cats from taking the ornaments out of the tree!  Last weekend "someone" removed a beautiful felt snowman and destuffed him.  We are pretty sure that Lucy was the culprit.  Holly however is being very well behaved on her dog bed by the tree.

An evening shot of our front veranda.  I do need to experiment more with the settings for night photos.

From the outside looking into the dining room.

The little sideboard at our rear entrance decorated for Christmas.

A new Tiffany lamp!  I have been keeping my eyes open for a Tiffany lamp for the breakfast room and found this fabulous lamp at a small shop in Caledon village.  

~Thank you for visiting~
