Hello and welcome to my corner of Georgia at Red Roof Farm. My blog is about the things that make me the most happy...family, home, church, collecting primitive antiques, junk ( I mean treasure) hunting, decorating, getting my hands dirty outside, an assortment of crafts and making stuff. Whew!!! As if I need more to do with a full time job of teaching. I grew up on an 85 acre farm where we raised cows, hay and an occasional ruckus. Now, we raise horses, flowers, vegetables and kids. I hope to someday make a living from home, but I can't quit my day job just yet. Thanks for stopping by!!

Christmas Home Tour

When we first looked at this house almost six years ago, the double sided fireplace was one feature we were really drawn to. The stacked stone goes 20 feet up to the top of the ceiling with plenty of display area all the way around to the kitchen. Sorry...no crackling fire today. It puts out a lot of heat.

The kitchen side of the fireplace

The old cupboard was a Christmas present from my parents 23 years ago.

A tiny half bath off the foyer. The dry sink belonged to my grandparents as did the oil lamp. The oil lamp was given to them as a wedding gift.

I found this old school desk at an antique store in Madison, Georgia. If you ever have a chance to go to this wonderful old historic town, you will not be disappointed. The spectacles and Bible on which they rest belonged to my great great grandmother.

My son loves this wooden sampler. He is really into saying his ABC's.


  1. What a beautiful home you have.
    Wow, that fireplace is impressive!!!

  2. Hey Becky, I lived in Madison, GA for about 5 years, back in the 1970's. Beautiful town , huh? Hope you and yours have a Merry Christmas!!
