Our Approach

My Vision

As a teen, I loved taking pictures with a cheap camera.  Sometimes I would get a good photograph.

Fresh Pomegranate and Orange Salads

When I grew up, I worked full time in a basement of a hospital while putting myself through college.

When I picked up my college degree, I had totally paid off all my college debts without ever taking out a loan.

Then I married, left my family, friends, home, and job.

Little did I know I would meet my “farmhouse” in the most unlikely urban place.

Our Story

Carrots and Beets

I volunteered to give farmhouse tours and, before long, I knew I had found my true passion.

As a farmhouse docent, I also learned by trial and error how to make faux food for the museum displays.

I learned about history, antiques and preserving the past.

Well here’s the part that gets a little crazy, because I was never a computer person but . . .

I decided to learn to blog, write Farmhouse Magic Blog.com, and take all my photographs with my camera phone.

You’re not going to see a bunch of fancy, expensive craft projects or furniture on this blog.


Since I have an economic degree, I am going to talk a little about saving money.  I’m also going blog about gardening, cooking, local sites of interest, antiques, and awesome entertaining ideas using good old Farmhouse Magic Blog common money sense.
