  1. Wow! I LOVE EVERYTHING about this wonderful, charming farmhome! Kudos to Kate – her taste is spot on!

  2. This is such a cute and amazing home. I want to visit it and see all that wonderfulness in person. Lol!

  3. I have followed Farm and Foundry for some time. If you see the before pictures, the transformation is incredible. They did such a great job gutting this home and yard and redoing them. Beautiful, fun house!

  4. Just found this blog and I absolutely love it. This home is perfection. Although that african grey cage is borderline animal abuse.

  5. What fun to putter through your home and garden. Adore the mop scare crow. I’m wondering how long the wood scrap garden path would last? I would love to try it, but not if it has to be replaced very often.
