BEAUTIFUL LIGHTING


    ~ I have seen some beautiful lamps and chandeliers in blogland this week ~

~ finding a wonderful lamp or chandy can really make a difference in a room ~ 

Look how pretty this one looks especially with the 
ruffled shade ~ Martina @ Northern Nesting 
found the perfect spot for it in this sitting area!




Kate @ Kate's Place found this sweet and delicate alabaster lamp at a garage sale.
It did have a broken piece but after a quick fix you would never know!



I'm loving this country french lamp that Kim @ Savvy Southern Style
found at an antique mall ~ so many pretty details!

Kim also shared with us her gorgeous
 new chandelier in her dining room ~
isn't it just beautiful?


Here is my favorite light in our house ~ it hangs over our kitchen 
table.  We've had it for about 2 years and I still really love it!




So many choices for lighting out there and yet it can still be difficult to find 
the one that is just right . . . but when you do, it can make all the difference!

HAVE A WONDERFUL, FUN, AND SAFE LABOR DAY WEEKEND!!

  1. All of the lamps are just beautiful, Jo Anne and I really love yours with the shades. You're right...they do make all the difference. I love lamps so much more than recessed or track lighting...they are just warmer and cozier!!

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…
