BARN SALE AND GARAGE SALE TREASURES

Hi Everyone,
     I haven't posted for a bit.
 I've been busy going to all sorts of sales among other things.
 I'd like to show you some of the things I have found.

A pretty vintage tablecloth.

I couldn't resist this little cabinet.
It's kind of hard to tell, but it is actually a light pink so I will be painting it.

A simple stoneware bowl.


Love this plate with the perfect shade of blue.

Another vintage tablecloth - this one has my favorite blue.


I thought this steamer was kind of unique.



I really love this plate - the colors are so soft and pretty.

Okay, so you know how you change one thing in your house and it leads to a bunch of other changes?  Well, that's what happened when I brought these things home.  I've been changing some things around, especially in the family room.  Sometimes it takes a while to get it to where it seems just right.  I'll be sure to show it to you when I do.

Have a great weekend.  I hope you have beautiful weather where you are and at least a little bit of time for relaxation!

  7. Just an idea about the steamer - use it to store ribbons- hang from ceiling, fill with ribbons, thread ribbons through holes.

A HOUSE ON A LAKE

Many of us dream of having a beach house but when you don't live anywhere near the ocean, a house on a lake might be a more realistic possibility. Lake houses or cabins tend to be a little more rustic and cozy, I think, and there's something to be said for being surrounded by tall trees, the sounds of nature, and possibly a few critters. Here are a few lake houses I found on Houzz.   Some small, some bigger, some more rustic than others. Take a look and let me know what you think.

Home For The Holidays ~ Entry, Family Room and Kitchen

I have always loved the phrase "Home for the Holidays". Even though we are taking a short trip right before Christmas, we will be back in time to enjoy Christmas at home.

Of course, home can be wherever the people I love will be.
That's the most important thing and the most necessary ingredient.





But I don't mind if it also includes a cute little reindeer.





And a decorated mantel.





A Christmas tree, of course.



Pretty packages.






And a cozy kitchen with little bits of Christmas sprinkled around.







Christmas also includes our cute kitty with visions of sugarplums dancing
in his little head . . . or kitty treats, whichever.


Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by.
I know there are so many beautiful homes to visit right now.

Hope your Christmas is Merry and Bright!

Farmhouse Style In My Kitchen

Wow! 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 th…
