Affordable Farmhouse Lighting for Every Room in the House

Last week, I went shopping with my husband for some affordable lights for our house. Shopping with my husband. Four words that should never be uttered together in the same sentence. 🙂

Farmhouse White Kitchen Wall Storage Shelves

You would never guess by looking at my white kitchen that there was a time when the last color I would have chosen to paint it was white. White walls reminded me of every apartment I’d ever lived in, where every single room was white, and I didn’t have any choice in the matter.

Bespoke Wooden Totes & American Farmhouse Style

My daughter has a word-of-the-day app on her phone.  Most of the words are ones that are seldom used and neither of us know what they mean, but the one she told me the other day was bespoke. It’s an old word that dates back to the 1500’s and is rarely used in normal conversation, but  it’s become a somewhat trendy word today. According to Merriam-Webster, bespoke refers to things that are ordered before they are made. My husband and {Read More}

Farm Fresh Eggs and a Terrifying Hen

Farm fresh eggs. Those three little words conjure up wholesome images of barns and chickens and kids running around barefoot through the grass to collect them, don’t they? But my mom has a different image when it comes to farm fresh eggs …

Evergreen & Antiques Free Christmas Decorating

Last year I bought a beautiful evergreen garland to hang in our entryway. I draped it around the doorway between the entryway and kitchen, and walking under it reminded me of walking through the field of pine trees my dad planted at my childhood home.  The garland had that amazing freshcut evergreen aroma; it looked beautiful and I absolutely loved it … … for about two days.

Black and White Farmhouse Kitchen Update

    I decided last week that we absolutely positively needed a new kitchen table. Not only did we need it, we needed it before Thanksgiving. My poor husband.  As soon as I said that, he knew any plans of relaxing over the weekend had just flown out the window. Let’s take a little walk down kitchen table memory lane, and you’ll see why he’s starting to hate the words “kitchen table.”

Grocery List DIY Paper Wall Dispenser

I think my family is under the impression that I walk around with a grocery list and pen in my pocket at all times. They are wrong. If I had a dollar for every time someone tells me we need milk, or we’re almost out of toilet paper, or we need something it would never occur to me we need, like popcorn seasoning … I could afford to hire a personal shopper. 🙂

Magnolia House Style Kitchen Sign

If you could go on a one-night getaway, where would it be?  I can answer that in two words … Magnolia House. I could happily just stand in front of it and stare at the front porch and gabled roof for days. Can you imagine hanging out in the living area surrounded by shiplap walls, or eating breakfast in the charming breakfast nook?  If you haven’t seen it, click here and you’ll see why I love it. At $700 a night, {Read More}

Table Setting for Fall in Non-Traditional Colors

Normally I love the earthy brown, orange, and yellow colors of fall, but this year I decided to break away from traditional fall colors, with a lighter fall farmhouse table setting. Before my mother-in-law passed away earlier this year, she and my father-in-law had started going to estate sales. She knew that I love old things and bought me a vintage tablecloth at one sale. I’ll never forget when she called to tell me she was sending it to me.  She said she {Read More}
