HOW I REDECORATED MY KITCHEN SHELVES

After Christmas, I wanted to do something 
different with the set of shelves in our kitchen.


So I took everything off and went through my
cupboards and pulled out everything I thought I could use.
After a good dusting, I played around until I came up
with a look I was happy with.



I was trying to create a more casual arrangement
than what I would typically do.



It's more of a collected over time look, I think.



By stacking things, I was able to display a lot more of my dishes, bowls,
and pitchers that I love and at the same time, it doesn't look too cluttered.



A nice fresh change for after the holidays.


My boxwood branches still look good
so I guess they will stay a while longer.


Thank you for all of your visits and sweet comments ~ it means a lot.
I hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

  8. Blue and white together is always so clean and nice looking, and you've got a gorgeous collection of ceramic pieces that are perfect on your shelves! I recently repainted some bookcases in white with blue on the inside, and I love how it looks.

  9. Really pretty! I have one of those beautiful Myott plates I found in an antiques shop in TN. At another shop on that same trip I found a cup and saucer. I like the way you painted the backboard blue.

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…
