New Look For My Small Entry

I always love when I walk into someone's home and their entryway is pretty and inviting.
Its just a good feeling and then of course, I want to see more.
Well I was ready for a new look in our entry but it's a bit narrow and difficult to find 
small pieces of furniture that will work without crowding the area too much.

I love cute little stools and benches and I actually have a small collection
 at this point so I decided to try one of them in the entry.

I liked it, but it didn't seem like enough and there was too much
 space between the bench and the mirror. 

 So then I tried stacking a smaller bench on top.
It was looking better and after adding a few accessories I think it did the trick.

Adding something large like this galvanized bucket full of faux lavendar makes a 
very pretty statement as you walk in the door.

This one little white pumpkin is a nice seasonal touch too.

Now I have a new look in the entry and also this is my view from our
kitchen doorway so it's nice to have a pretty view from there as well.

Don't you love quick, easy and inexpensive decorating?
Me too!

Farmhouse Kitchen In The UK

It's been a while since I have posted about an adorable kitchen so when
I saw this one, I knew I needed to remedy that.
This kitchen exudes farmhouse charm all over the place.
Isn't the cabinetry gorgeous?
And look at the checkerboard tile on the back splash - so cute!

I have always loved plate racks and this one on the far wall is no exception.
We can always use a place to display our pretty dishes, right?
You also get a glimpse of the gorgeous Aga stove here.

And here is a better view of it with its four ovens. 
It's an amazing focal point for this kitchen along with
 the tiles that show off a couple cute roosters.

The island with its wooden counter top is nice and big
 and it has a handy prep sink as well.

See the large armoire like cupboard in the photo below?
That is actually the refrigerator - love that!
You also get a view of the eating area here with a collection of 
paintings on the walls - perfect for a farmhouse kitchen.

I found this kitchen on House to Home UK.
If you like English style as much as I do, you would
love this website so take a look.

I hope you enjoyed this kitchen tour ~ I'm so glad you came by today!

Cracker Barrel - Some Sweet Finds

Sometimes you just never know where you will find something special for your home.
We stopped at a Cracker Barrel a couple weeks ago and of course I had to look
around in the Country Store part of the restaurant.
Do you ever see something and just instantly know that you love it and have to have it?
Well, that is how I felt about this wood cake stand.
There was no way I was leaving there without it.
Wood Cake Stand

Here it is on our table being used as a centerpiece.

I just love the warmth of the wood top and I can imagine using it
 for so many different things all around the house.

I paid $25 but I noticed that it's now on sale for $18.74.
You can also shop online.
Here are a few other goodies that I thought would be perfect
for cottage or farmhouse style and they are all on sale as well:

Striped Kitchen Towel

Love the little yellow ruffle on this kitchen towel.

Do you see anything you like?
You just never know where you will find the perfect thing for your home.
These would all make a nice gift too.

This is not a paid endorsement, just helping you spend your money  : ) !

Thanks a bunch for visiting!
