Time for another Q & A!
This time it's with Laurie at Welcome to the Turner Farm.
She is one industrious, AMAZING lady! Read on to see what I mean:
Q- Favorite material to use in decorating:
A-We have been in the construction mode for what now seems like forever that I am thrilled with all materials related to decorating. I am drawn to items that tell a story. Items that have been shared from generation to generation. Some of our rooms have been designed around a family item that we had been given. Norms side of the family, writes the history of the piece and attaches it, I cherish those pieces!
Q- Describe your style in 3 words or less:
A- Farmhouse Chic
Q- Tell us, what brings you to blog land?
A-I spent hours in my teens and early twenties reading the diaries, cookbooks, stories of yesteryear farmers. I was so intrigued. I had big plans to journal our daily adventures building the farm. Our first year or so here was so difficult that we were literally in survival mode. Looking back it seems surreal. We moved from a beautiful home to a camper in the middle of 128 acres! WHAT?!?
Various friends mentioned that they had a blog. I never paid much attention, until I saw this movie. I started Welcome to the Turner Farm as a way to share our daily adventures around the farm. THERE HAVE BEEN MANY!
Q-Do you have a favorite room in the house?
A-My Kitchen. It is me through and through. It was designed and constructed around my stove. Seriously! My stove was purchased and delivered the same week we poured the slab for the kitchen wing. Norm and I got the framing for the walls up and my stove was delivered. A pitman truck, air lifted it over the walls and into the middle of the kitchen floor. Building Advise: Don't try this at home. It is no fun to build an entire wing of your house around a 7ft crate.
Our son-in-law found a board that his granddad had written a date on, it happened to be the same year I was born. They spent 2 months working on painting it and distressing it. It touches my heart, more than I can say.
Q-You are a__________by day and a ___________ by night
A-I am a Chef by day. I work for a Maine Winery and Brewery. I teach cooking classes on how to pair wine or ale with the meals we prepare.
I also cook for any special events; weddings, anniversaries, birthday parties, etc. that are held at the winery.
Two of my sisters, myself, along with our husbands have recently purchased our parents homestead and golf course. When I'm not at the winery or on the farm working, you'll find me there. Carrying on the legacy that many generations of Reynolds have created.
Isn't she amazing?!
