Simple Summer Bedroom

I love the way the sun was streaming through our bedroom
window this morning.

Enjoying the beginning of the day before the house wakes up
and the temperatures rise.

Crisp white sheets . . .

a white wicker rocking chair . . .

and sweet pink flowers . . .

create a simple summer bedroom . . .

and a cool retreat at the end of the day.

Happy Monday Everyone!

Strawberries Are Not Just For Eating

I don't know about you, be we sure do eat a lot of strawberries this time of year.
I've also been noticing a lot of very cute strawberry inspired items
for the home and I thought I would share some of them with you.

Here are some faux strawberries that could be used in some fun summer decorating.
Don't they look real?
You might have to warn people not to eat them!

Here's a sweet little vintage shaker - perfect for shaking some powdered sugar
on those fresh strawberries.

Isn't this jam pot adorable?

So cute and unique for your spices.

I am sure tea must taste better when using a tea kettle decorated with strawberries.

I love this strainer with it's black and strawberry theme - so original!

Strawberry shortcake is a favorite of mine - so good!
You can keep the recipe hanging right on your wall.

You can have a pillow with strawberries on it.

Handmade items are always extra special.

There's even a tissue box cover with strawberries on it!

How about a strawberry scented candle?
Especially great when it comes in a cute tin or jar.

You can have your strawberries and eat them too!

Have a great Saturday everyone!

Farmhouse Style In My Kitchen

Farmhouse style has really taken off, hasn't it?
I love it just as much as many of you out there.
One of the great things about it is that it's fairly easy to add 
to your decor and it can be relatively inexpensive too.

Here are a few recent finds for my kitchen that I
think give it a little more of that farmhouse feeling. 

Now this one is pretty obvious considering it has the word "FARM" right on it  : )
This came from a little shop I went to while we were on vacation 
and it really inspired me to add a few more farmhouse style accessories.

I have admired these vintage scales forever and I finally found one on Ebay 
that I thought would look great in my kitchen and was also a reasonable price.
Boy, some of them are really pricey!

Any good farmhouse has to have a rooster, right?
A quick little project I did was add blue grain sack stripes to
this white wooden rooster.
I think he is pretty proud of them!

Of course mason jars and pretty little flowers bring on the farmhouse vibe.

And not just mason jars, but almost any kind of jar.
This old Radish jar was a gift and I just love it - it goes perfectly
in my kitchen.

This little lamb was also a vacation purchase.
It's actually a Christmas ornament but I want to see him everyday.
Isn't that little face adorable?

So don't throw away those jelly jars and pickle jars.
They are perfect for silverware or other kitchen utensils.

Even a crisp linen towel (wrinkles and all) is a 
simple way to add that farmhouse feeling.

Old bowls, bread boards, wire baskets and old cook books from
thrift stores are just a few more items that can bring farmhouse style
to your kitchen.

So what do you think?
It's a style that is charming, cozy, relaxing and easy to work with.
Yep, I think it's going to be around for awhile and that's just fine with me.

Thanks a bunch for visiting!

Hobby Lobby 50% Sale

This is for all of you Hobby Lobby fans out there.
Today I noticed they are having a 50% off sale on home decor.
I'm always looking for wall decor so I spent some time online looking
at all of their cute choices.

Here are a few I especially liked and the prices are amazing.

This style of graphic art seems to be really popular right now
and this one jumped out at me. 

For some reason, I have been drawn towards sheep lately.
Isn't this cute?

This is very pretty with a nice message as well.

Wouldn't this be adorable in a little boy's room?

I don't think we can ever get enough of chalkboards and chicken wire.

I love the simplicity of this one.

Another pretty love sign.

Click on the words below the picture if you would like more
information on that particular item.
Now the hard part is making a choice!
I'm not being compensated for this, I just felt
it was my duty to spread the word  : )
The sale runs through July 16th.

I hope you're having a great week so far!
