Welcome to the group.  I currently don't have any pictures to share.  I will see what I can get thrown onto a disk once I get finished moving.  My "old fashioned" living - as far as the building I live in, has been put on a bit of a hold.  I am moving into an apartment in a small ranching town.

In the summers though, I spend most of my time at a cabin in the mountains.  We have no running water, no bathroom, out house only, no formal heat as we have no electric or gas run to it.  Stricktly wood stove.  We had some renters that put on an addition and had all the ammenties - running water from the house next door, connected the electric service, connected the gas fuel.  I don't want all those things, they cost to darn much. Therefore, this summer, I will be changing everything back to the way it was.  A full redo, I am thinking. 

It will be a few months, but eventually I will do a post with all the pictures and the work as it gets done.  We still can't drive to the cabin.  To much snow still.  The place is at 9200 ft elevation.  In the mountains of Wyoming. 

I hope this post takes off and I too, get to see other's old fashioned living lifestyle.

I do a lot of the stuff they list, garden, can, make stuff from scratch, shop in bulk, but one thing I love that is finally catching back on is sewing.

I love the brown and cream dress!!!!!! Now I have to go and sew something thanks for the inspiration!
