My Small Covered Porch That Finally Got a Makeover

Do you have a space in your house or yard that is just plain ugly? So ugly, you don’t want a single soul to lay eyes on it? But I’m going to show it to you today because we decided to turn that ugly spot into a space we we love now!

Spring Garden Decorating in the Farmhouse Guest Room

It’s less than a week until the first day of spring, so I removed all traces of winter from my guest house and decorated with a fresh spring garden theme. I loved my woodland winter theme, but I’m so over winter!

Walking On Sunshine Spring Cleaning

My oldest son’s fiance is coming to visit this weekend, so I needed to dig in and get started on my spring cleaning. I don’t deep clean often enough, but company is a great motivator!

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. 🙂

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.”

Weekending | Room Reset and a Rusty Pitchfork

This week has been a Longgggg one. Seriously. My teenage son got his first real job, which is a huge “hip hurray,” but he doesn’t have his driver’s license yet.  So you know what that means?

Actually, I freak out a lot. I know they come to see us, and not our house, but I want our guests to feel welcome, be comfortable, and not wish they had booked a hotel room instead of staying with us. 🙂 My oldest son’s girlfriend is arriving for a visit {Read More}

Decorating on a Budget for Fall in the Farmhouse Entryway

House Numbers Sign Hanging Planter

When you live in the country, giving someone directions to your house can be tricky. There aren’t many landmarks to look for, unless you count fields of corn or barns.

Cafe Lights in the Guest Room

When your kids are babies, life is all about cute little outfits, decorating the nursery, and getting photos to mark their 3rd, 6th, 9th, and 12th month moments, and nobody really warns you about what may be coming in the days ahead, do they?
