A PRETTY SNOWFALL AND A GIFT FOR MYSELF


This is what I could see from my 
front windows today.



~ so pretty ~

Don't you love a fresh coat of snow on the ground?


Do you ever buy yourself a Christmas present?
It seems I always find something for myself when
I am suppose to be shopping for others.




I saw this box with drawer thingie at Homegoods.
I didn't buy it at first but after I got home,
I just kept thinking about it.

So here it is.



The green worked fine for Christmas but I 
will probably paint it.

I thought this was the perfect spot for it on my kitchen counter.

Did you buy any presents for yourself?

  5. When you find something special like that box, you can't avoid it, it's calling you: "take me home". Happy New Year. Are you going to paint it in blue??

  6. Our view was also gorgeous. Had fog this a.m. so all the trees had this awesome extra coating on them, looked like winter wonder land. We've had a few inches in last 2 weeks so it's lovely and crunchy cold. Was so happy to have white Christmas.
    I bought myself new turqoise jeans and a multicolored stripe sweater at Sam's yesterday. Hubs got a fleece jacket. We didn't get our SS til day after Christmas so the day was a little sparse. Felt guilty for buying outfit for myself but I'll enjoy it just the same. Have to try it on tho. Happy New Year
    Love your drawer box for kitchen counter or wherever? Will look forward to seeing what you paint it.

  7. Hi JoAnne! I hope you had a nice Christmas. We are enjoying the snow too!

    Your new drawer box is a great find! I like the green but it would look awesome painted aqua!

    Happy New Year!

  8. I love your box. You were lucky that it was still there. I have learned to buy things when I see them because otherwise I miss out. I'll stop back to see what color you choose.

  9. Happy New Year, JoAnne!

    Love your box, but adore the turquoise blue bowl vignette, even more! Your kitchen looks mighty cozy with that snow falling outside.

    Hope you have a wonderful year,

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…
