Growing up an Iowa Farm Girl

Case Steam Engine which has been in our Family since 1915
My father Raleigh Woltmann on his 80th birthday June 20th, 2005 which was also Father's Day. For his birthday we had a big picnic and he fired up his steam engine and invited many friends and neighbors.
Nathan and Nolan Faselt hanging on to the giant cast iron wheels. It was a great day for a family. We all had matching shirts and my father had "buttons" made for the event. This is typical for Steam Engine Shows that he's attended over the years.
I'm a Christian mother of 4 who married my best friend 25 years ago. We live in rural Iowa near Iowa City in a turn of the century Victorian home with a beautiful wrap around porch and a high point view of Johnson county. In 1993 we turned a grain shed into our first little "Rug Cottage" where I sold area rugs and gifts. Since then the little cottage has grown as well as our family. We now have Barntiques Antique Mall in our historic barn.
