Other than furniture with the always stubborn "Dust Bunnies?" 
 Here's a bunch of pictures of what's on mine:

A real "Sap Bucket" beautifully painted.

A favorite corner

I actually use these for storage - wooden apples and pears!

My husband's chair, daughter's Raggedy Ann

Husband made a "Pouting" chair for each of our daughters one Christmas & I made them 
18" Teddy Bears.  I talked him into a chair for me!  :)

A real cutie for our sun-porch -- heat or just flames!

Shipped this chest from Providence, R. I. one vacation.
Sheep are my thing!

Here Kitty, Kitty, Kitty  

The best thing is the tag that says: "Someone in Iowa Loves you!"

My attempt at a "Bucket Bench" bought on-line.

Husband also built this Firewood for each of our girls and you don't think I would let him get away without one for me, do you???

One of those corners that I feel looks too busy but in 15 years I can't figure out what to do see those are place mats rolled up in the crock...why, you say?  Well, there is not a drawer in my kitchen that is wide enough for place mats!  AND, see the Dollar Store one curved in the back...well, it is hiding an electric outlet full of T.V. plugs etc.  Really UGLY!

This is my entire collection of YELLOW WARE which I dearly love.
Oh yes, I do have 3 plates!  Yippee!

And last but not least, this is the floor cloth I painted for the last Home Tour
 and the inspiration for the name of my blog!
It is the closest I will ever come to living in a real farmhouse!  (Sigh!)

Why don't you post about WHAT'S ON YOUR FLOOR and leave me a comment so I can check your blog out...I am really nosy!  :)

Now my apologies to you all:  I hurt my foot in September and then hurt my back so have been in pain since then...pain pills, physical therapy, etc.  but it still hurts.  An MRI and cortisone shots are on the horizon but I am toughing it out as best as I can.  But as you all know who "have been there" when you are in pain nothing much gets done, including "sitting at the computer" much at all.  So I hope you can all forgive me and I will try to do better as I get better!

Love to you all,


  1. Hi Joy...what a delightful post - it's different and I love it.
    I dont' have a lot of things on my floor...never thought about it but since you posted this I realize I have nothing.
    Love the yellow ware bowls! Lots of great collections.


  2. Hi Mom what a nice post! Everything looks really good. The only thing I see missing is dog fur, cat fur and crumbs which, as you know, I have at my house! Very nice!!! Can I have the gold, black and red boxes? Love, Kathy (the Someone in Iowa who loves You!)

  3. Hi Joy !I had to pop over to see your floorcloth you mentioned. What a great job you did. Those farmhouses are wonderful...I have the same willow tree stencil and love it. I use heavy floorcloth canvas for you?

  4. well it is certainly good to see you posting! I love your post and hope you are feeling better soon. Did you get to go on your Christmas trip to your girls? Again I wonder about you when you don't

  5. Lots of goodies you've shared - loved seeing everything! Especially your yellowware - can't get enough of that stuff!

  6. Dear Joy,
    I am "overjoyed" that you have posted again. I have missed you so much. I am sorry that you have been in so much pain. I do understand how hard it is to live with constant pain. I will add you to my prayers.

    I hope that you will find some relief soon. I would love to hear from you again. If you get a chance stop by my blog. My grandson is in need of prayers.
    Feel better soon dear Joy. Hugs, Lura
