welcome dear friends. allow me to introduce you to the person behind the red barn door. my name is tara and i am a farmer's wife, student, thrifter, diy'er, knitter, dog owner, and jesus follower, in no particular order. my husband and i moved into an old farmhouse in the beginning of 2011 and began personalizing it right away. as newlyweds, we were on a tight budget when it came to decorating. i started shopping for house decor and furniture at local garage sales, thrift stores, and flea markets and have been addicted ever since. my mind is always spinning with new projects for our humble little farmhouse. occasionally, i actually do one and share it right here. thanks for stopping by, i'm glad you are here.
