GETTING CRAFTY FOR THE 4TH OF JULY

When I saw these flags on Jennifer's blog Town & Country Living,
I thought they were just so adorable!


I also thought they looked fairly easy to make and I knew 
I had some fabric scraps and goodness knows we have
plenty of sticks.

So I got busy and this is what I came up with.


It was fun coming up with the combination of fabrics 
 and I even added buttons to one of them.


When my daughter was little she hated to wear anything with buttons on it.
She would throw a little fit and really didn't even like it if I wore clothing with buttons.
I have never really figured that one out.
So when she saw these flags, she said the only one she didn't like
 was of course the one with the buttons!!
She was just kidding . . . I think.



I ended up kind of scattering them around our dining area.







Quick, easy and cute - gotta love it!

I hope everyone has a fun and safe 4th of July!

  3. I just love your soft approach to the red, white and blue color palette! Your fabric choices are perfect and take a theme that could be harsh and make it really beautiful. It fits so well into your surrounding romantic decor. Really really lovely.

  8. Hi JoAnne, The flags are so adorable and I love your light blue wall drawer chest. I plan to paint a cat bed stand in such a shade of blue. Your furry boss is such a cutie!!!

  9. Oh if I had seen this post earlier, I would have made a few of these darling flags. I guess I should actually make some today while they are in my mind and then bring them out again for Labor Day.

    My husband too has a hatred of buttons - just on pillows though.

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…
