MY BIG SECRETS REVEALED AT MUST LOVE JUNK AND A GUEST COTTAGE

Good Morning Everyone,
Today I'm over at Must Love Junk as Susan's Saturday Spotlight.
I just love Susan and her blog ~ you can just tell she is the sweetest person!
I hope you can pop on over and read about my big secrets . . . well, maybe not
big, but there are a couple things you probably don't know about me and may
just surprise you a bit.
If you click HERE, it will get you there!  ; )

I also want to show you the most darling little guest cottage
I think I have ever seen. 


When you see the inside, you won't believe it was originally a grain shed!


Adorable, right?
I think this would be a dream come true for anyone who loves
 cozy cottage retro style.


There are so many cute details like the exposed rafters, chippy furniture, 
and of course the blue vintage stove.


Such a sweet little bed with its pretty quilt.
Notice the little window up in the rafters.


Wouldn't this be a fun place to spend a couple nights?
I sure think so.
I hope you enjoyed seeing it.

HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND!

    1. Thank you, Lori! I always love when bloggers share more of their personal life. For some reason, I'm a little bit out of my comfort zone when it comes to the personal stuff but I think I just need to get over that! Happy Sunday!

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!
JoAnne

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…
