Talk of the Town #22

I can’t believe May is over and June is beginning, can you? Do you already have your plans for the summer in place, or are you still deciding what you’ll do? I’ve got some plans made, and am still working on more plans, and our swimming pool is almost ready, so lounging in it is high on my list, along with lots of projects I have planned. I know you all are busy already, because we have some wonderful features {Read More}

Wedding + More 1920’s Flower Printables

It’s been a wonderful and busy weekend for our family.  My daughter’s life-long best friend got married, and my daughter was her maid of honor. They’ve been friends since they  were about 6 years old, and have been by each other’s sides ever since, so it was such a joy for me to watch my daughter get to stand by her friend’s side for the most special day in her life. My middle son was able to come home with his {Read More}

Metal Pallet Repurposed into Wall Shelf

Whoever first said that patience is a virtue, clearly never had the coolest metal pallet sitting right in their own driveway, but they couldn’t use it! Let me back up a little… My husband brought it home months ago, but never mentioned it to me. It took awhile for me to even notice it was sitting there, because he had stacked a small mountain of wood pallets on it. Little by little, that mountain started getting smaller in size, as we used {Read More}

Antique Trunk Tray Makeover

Once upon a time (about 4 years ago), I went to the most ahhmazing farm country auction, and at that auction, I scored an antique trunk. Now, I really didn’t personally have any place to put that antique trunk, but it was so cool I couldn’t resist bidding on it, and to my surprise, I won. As I was getting ready to load it in my van, a young gal approached me and asked if she could buy it off {Read More}

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?

All Good Things

When you read the three words in this post’s title, “All good things“, I’d be willing to bet your mind automatically filled in the remainder of the proverb with, “must come to an end“, didn’t it? The funnest vacation you’ve ever taken eventually ends, Your brand new car eventually starts looking like a used car,      Downton Abbey ended, and there’s no season 7.  Sigh… So when I discovered one of my favorite good things was suddenly gone,

How to Make Farmhouse Picket Fence Wall Hooks

If you’ve got about an hour to spare, today I’m going to show you how to make farmhouse style picket fence wall hooks that can be used to display home decor, like hanging mason jars, or use as a coat, hat, or apron rack. After using pallet wood on the walls when we remodeled our entryway, my supply of pallet wood was pretty much depleted.  Getting more pallets isn’t a problem, but the axle on our hauling trailer broke, so getting the pallets {Read More}

Best of Farmhouse Friends + Rusty Bike Makeover

I’ve got a special treat for you today!  I’ve teamed up with some of my blogging buddies to bring you Best of Farmhouse Friends, and for our special event, I gave my super rusty old bike a makeover and dressed it up with a farmhouse style  flower basket! I bought my old bike four years ago at a yard sale  (see how it looked when I bought it HERE). It was already really rusty when I got it, but it’s been sitting out {Read More}
