Hi Peeps! I’m in the mad dash of the final prep for Hobnob Market NEXT WEEK! EEEEKKK! So exciting and so much final prep to do! I thought I was going to have to let this months Project Challenge slide but at the very last minute I threw a burlap seat on a chair. A […]
A Morning Table – The term conjures up visions of morning coffee (or tea if you are truly English) overlooking an English garden, with the morning sun just creeping over the horizon and sending shafts of warm, soft light to caress the face of the person sitting at the Morning Table.
Good Morning! I hope your weekend was amazing and that your week will be awesome. It’s springtime folks, even if the weather hasn’t quite figured that out yet around here. My pansies that I planted inside for my Spring Living Room Tour are now outside on the porch and have been covered overnight a time […]
Chalkboard paint. You know, that amazing stuff that gives you a chalkboard surface on whatever you choose to put it on! That is the category choice for this month’s Project Challenge. What is more classic than a chalkboard, right? I wanted to think outside the box … er… chalkboard … and come up with something a […]
Spring is here! The calendar says so, the weather says so some days, and I am definitely more than ready to see winter go packing and not come back!
Today is Farmhouse Friday and this month I’m sharing with you my Farmhouse Spring Living Room. I love it when the main room we hang out in is clean and tidy, and all decorated with fresh, fun decor.
Spring has sprung early in Ohio! So thankful! Yes, we will most likely have some cold days yet, but at this point it won’t last long cause we are midway through March 🙂 I’m thankful for every day that is warmer than ‘normal’. (whatever ‘normal’ is) (cracks me up every time the news tells us it’s above or below ‘normal’ for this time of year)
Easter is early this year, not as early as it can be, but it’s in March instead of April so that makes it early in my book. I’m hoping we have sunny, warm weather. March came in rather not-nice this year so hopefully it will go out nice.
Today I have some Easter Egg Decor to share with you. My friends and I decided on Easter Eggs for our Dose of DIY this month and when I saw a pack of paper mache Easter Eggs half price recently I nabbed them.
Welcome to another Farmhouse Friday where we are all sharing how we use florals in our homes. I’m going to show you how I went about adding Farmhouse Appeal with (mostly) Faux Floral.
Time out – WHY does spellcheck insist on saying ‘faux’ is misspelled?!
Seriously? I use the word fairly often and it drives me batty the way spellcheck doesn’t recognize it. Maybe I need to find a faux spellchecker to use instead of the real one! 😯
Ok, on to adding Farmhouse Appeal (or charm) with Faux Floral. (mostly faux for me this year)
A Cuckoo clock makeover.
I PAINTED IT!
WHITE. I painted it white. So there. 😀
I know. You can’t believe it. (I’m being very sarcastic here)
But I did. I painted a vintage cuckoo clock white.
Hello friends. It’s been awhile! I’ve been a bit overwhelmed with juggling a wholesale biz, an online shop, a brick and mortar store, life in general, kids, homeschooling, all while living through another winter 😀 Granted we’ve had a pretty great winter, as far as winter in Ohio goes. Not a lot of snow, not any huge long stretches of bitter cold. But still. 28° is cold. Wind chills in the single digits is cold. No matter how long it lasts it’s still cold! And it settles in my bones and makes me want to do nothing more than curl up in a warm fuzzy blanket and hibernate till the weather is 70°+ 😀
When you live in an old house that was built over 100 years ago – you have no storage. Therefore you have to woman up and invent your own ideas when it comes to the task of creating storage and organization.
Folks in the late 1800’s were more concerned with having a living space, a kitchen, maybe a bedroom or two, and then their concerns turned towards keeping the place warm in the winter and making ends meet than creating storage areas for ‘stuff’. I’m assuming with the tasks of cooking and laundry taking the time they did in those days, women didn’t have time for a lot of crafting or designing. So the need for storage wasn’t even an idea. And the amount of clothing they owned was just a bit less than what I have accumulated today, so they just made do with a few hooks on the wall. No need for a closet 🙂
January flew right by and here we are 3 days into February. The month that hosts Valentine’s Day! While I don’t go all out with Valentine’s Decor, and I don’t throw a hissy fit if I don’t get roses, I do like a bit of fun Valentine’s Decor and I will create a Valentine’s Pillow made of Old Jeans and detail it up with some genuine leather hearts! Call it a Hallmark holiday if you want but I kinda like it 🙂 It’s a good excuse to get all frilly and foofy if you want to 🙂
Old spindles just don’t belong on the burn pile! I didn’t know what I was going to do with them but I knew for certain they were NOT going to stay on my Uncle’s discard pile. I hauled them home along with a bunch of other cool stuff my uncle didn’t want. As my Project […]
