Inside an Amish Home

This is a home for sale in Christiana, PA (Lancaster County) that currently belongs to an Old Order Amish family.  (If you've got about $275,000 you don't know what to do with, you can snatch it up!)  There are several photographs of the interior of the house, and it's interesting to see the quilts they have on the beds, the kitchen, and the lighting in the kitchen and bathroom.  I'm also tickled by the "Papa, Mama, and Baby" rocking chairs at the far end of the living room.  Here's the link:  http://www.homesandland.com/Real_Estate/PA/City/CHRISTIANA/ListingId/15279283.html?RefererId=Yahoo

And, while you're "in the neighborhood," check out this absolutely wonderful (and very reasonably priced) bed & breakfast called "Gabriel's Hill."  It's on the same road as this Amish house.  If you plan to visit Lancaster County, I highly recommend this B&B:  it's far from the tourist traps and traffic but is still convenient to everything and overlooks a peaceful valley of Amish dairy farms:  www.gabrielshill.com

I love the feel of that house. Peaceful looking.

Re: Inside an Amish Home

My grandparents were Amish and this brings back memories. However, there were no motorised equipment in thier yard, and no gas run refigerator. I'm  71 so that was years ago. Even the Amish have moved forward.

Re: Inside an Amish Home

Thanks for that link!  The house looked very homey without all the clutter that most of us (including me) have accumulated.  Makes you kinda think about paring down, doesn't it?   I mean...how many TVs do I really NEED??? Maybe a few more books instead, and a lamp to read them by.

Re: Inside an Amish Home

I am in the processs of decluttering down-sizing or whatever one cares to call it and I swear someone is adding more than i am sending away. How can this be???

Re: Inside an Amish Home

I hear ya, Brendalynne!  I've been doing the same thing, and no matter how many boxes I get packed up of stuff to donate, it seems like I haven't even made a dent in it!  I swear it just seems to multiply like bunny rabbits when my back's turned!  Wink   ~ Janice

Re: Inside an Amish Home

We've been clearing out things too. We donated two large bags of clothing and another of household items. I know the attic's full of unused items too, but hubby has to get up there and go through that. We've collected a lot of "stuff" in our 26 years in this house!

Re: Inside an Amish Home

well at least i am not losing  my mind or having hallucinations if someone else is in the same situation. At the same time I am trying to do the same to the business office. Just get to look at a different bunch of stuff between home and business hrs.

I cannot for the life of me recall when the moving stuff out as stuff comes in rule got changed.  Thank goodness I have stuck to the rule in the clothes closet.

Re: Inside an Amish Home

Thank you for the look inside an Amish home, Kevin.  About time I went home and cleaned mine.
