Finally got around to sharing some pictures of our new place.
The place that – to me – is so ridiculously dreamy, it has inspired some moments of feeling not-quite-worthy.
I mean, we prayed to find the right house when we moved here. But I didn’t even dare to dream this big.
Sometimes it honestly takes my breath away… I just love it here so much. It is a daily reminder of God’s goodness.
The house is very old, and has all the trimmings: hardwoods, crown molding. Stunning workmanship everywhere.
And window after window. After window.
The kitchen has beautiful old brick floors. A farmhouse sink.
And, possibly even more wonderful, a laundry room. Dreamy, indeed.
There’s a snuggly room off the kitchen for the kids to play.
A back porch for everyone to get their fill of fresh air.
And a total of six fireplaces, even in the bedrooms.
Only Vivenne’s room and the master bedroom are participating in Sunday Snapshot today – the other bedrooms just weren’t up to having their picture taken.
But they do send their regards.
Honestly, we could have never afforded to buy a place like this.
But God worked it out that we didn’t have to.
We are able to rent this house for just a few hundred dollars more per month than the amount we get for rent on our house in New England.
Even though this house was on the market for three times the amount ours was.
Not quite sure how the math works on that one.
But I guess I really don’t need to understand it.
So for now until the time we have to leave,
We are going to enjoy it – and thank God for it – every single day.
If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! – Matthew 7:11

It’s way too difficult to pick a favourite room from these shots – how glorious is this house (and your pictures of it). Thank you for hosting this link up.

Now, I’m off to remind myself of all I have to be thankful for this morning too 🙂
Dreamy indeed! Looks like a bed and breakfast……..are you accepting guests?

Oh God is Good all the Time 🙂 Praise him indeed. It still catches me to think how our Lord will just say I know what you need just have faith and you shall see we just have to remember he is the one in control. 🙂 Such a beautiful home LOVE it. All that light is AMAZING.. love it!

Lee Ann says
Absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!! SO happy for you all……and the pony on top of it all! Could it get any better 🙂
What a lovely place you are lucky to get to call home! I love old houses and their architecture. The light is just beautiful. Thank you for sharing!
Beautiful home…I love it. God is good!
What a beautiful house!!!
What an absolutely beautiful home! It’s so wonderful when God blesses us in such a neat way!
Absolutely stunning, Stefanie! So glad you were blessed with this safe haven!
What a beautiful blessing from the Lord for you and your family! Thanks for sharing it!
I love the details. Beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing. How old is the house? We found a gorgeous Dutch Colonial house in Seattle built in 1916 that rents for a fraction of what I’m sure it would cost to buy. There’s little hope it’ll still be available in 8 months when we move, but who knows?
Very beautiful! Love the windows and the tubs. Praise God!
OK, obviously your home is absolutely gorgeous and completely charming ~love love love it!! But, I must know, where did you get the beautiful pictures hanging above Poppy’s bed?? I need these for my future *figment of my imagination?* daughter to be’s room!!
Thanks, Kristi 🙂 We got them in China! Bought them as a set of watercolors (very inexpensively, I might add ;)) when we were there for Isabelle and finally had them framed a few years ago. They are of the “Four Beauties”, each representing a different season… we love them too!
Welcome Home! God is good … all the time!
Absolutely stunning — and clearly a beautiful backdrop for loads of photos and simply life. Can’t wait to see more!
Love the house! You deserve it! Do you know the name of the paint color in V’s room? I must have it 🙂
With Grateful Hearts says
Stefanie…it’s gorgeous!! Enjoy it!! Unless I missed it somewhere, I haven’t read what state you are in now.
What state are you in now? Seems like you’re covering the map pretty well..haha.
Oh wow! What an amazing place! You must pinch yourself several times daily. God is so amazingly gracious to us, isn’t He?
You are worthy. That is all!
marianne zeun says
The house is truly gorgeous! I love all of the beautiful light shining in through all of the windows.

No wonder I never saw this post! I was in Africa bringing Ruby home. I LOVE your home. It is stunning and I am so thankful the Lord provided ‘above and beyond all you could think or dream of’….He loves your heart, He loves your home and He loves to bless those who advocate for His treasures! You are a prize jewel to Him, my sweet friend. xo
