 Worthing Court: House tour at Stone GablePin

I’m Yvonne from StoneGable
I’m so happy to be here with my dear friend Suzy! I had the pleasure of meeting Suzy face-to-face this summer and she is just like her blog… warm and delightful!!!
Come on in… let’s do some StoneGable house SNOOPING!
We built StoneGable 18 years ago in the the bucolic farmlands of Lancaster Pa.
I love living in the heart of Amish country!
StoneGable, a farmhouse inspired home, reflects the countryside around it. 
 It really has a life of it’s own and  a way of wrapping it’s arms around your heart!
We have been in the process of freshening up StoneGable one room at a time!
Our dining room is a work in progress… and getting close to being done.
But, I always say… “is a room ever really done”?
My husband and I are real DIY’ers! And the dining room is a good example of this!  We ripped out carpet, laid hardwood floors, painted the walls and trim, refinished the furniture, installed the chandy and made the curtains.
 I have had the Ethan Allen Mahogany table and 18th century chairs for 27 years. They were looking a little dated so I decided to paint the chairs and reupholster them too.  
What a job!!!! But they are much fresher and go well with the rest of the decor!
The living room is another ongoing, almost done project…
Here’s a peek of the living room from the family room!
And now for my favorite room… my farmhouse kitchen! It’s the hub of my home and all activity seems to flow from here!
This is a working kitchen!!!! So nothing fussy here!  It’s very very functional. 
Because I love to cook, this room earns it’s keep!
My breakfast room is just off the kitchen… it’s a high traffic area! My farmhouse table gets lots and lots of use!!!!

The family room is cozy and warm and is where we settle in each evening after dinner…I am always changing up this room!!!! Right after Christmas we are installing hardwood floors. YEA!


We have redone 2 bedrooms upstairs and are now finishing the third! Bedroom are my favorite rooms to freshen up! I adore bedding and PILLOWS… it’s kind of an addiction!

Here is a couple of pictures of the J & J guest bedroom… decorated with touches for Christmas…


The Gable Room is a small jewel-of-a-guest room! It has a vaulted ceiling and is furnished with antiques and vintage pieces!l It’s soft creamy, peach walls just make everyone feel good!  My guests love this room… especially the girls!

Our master bedroom is on our schedule for a spring makeover…

Our latest project is the foyer!We have been ripping down yellow marbleized wall paper for a month. Bobby promises me it will be done right before Thanksgiving!

This is the room I am most excited to decorate this Christmas! There will be boxwood wreaths and black plaid ribbon and lots of paperwhites!
The stairs were once covered in a floral runner (no judging, after all it WAS the 90’s) and was a mass of stained oak.

We did all the work ourselves, again we are S-L-O-W diy’ers!


I still have a couple of small pictures to hang … but I have not found the perfect one’s yet.

Suzy, thanks so much for bringing your readers along for some StoneGable HOUSE SNOOPING!
Make sure to stop in and  visit StoneGable during the Christmas season…


Thanks so much for stopping by…

My front door is always open to friends… old and new!
