SMALL PURCHASES UNDER $10

Over the past couple of months, I have picked up
a few little things for the house.
I'm really trying to be more careful about what I buy
so I'm not wasting money on things I'm tired of in a short time.

These small things passed the test!
All under $10 too!


~ found this lovely old bowl at a local antique mall ~


~ sweet little picture, only about 4x6, from a garden center ~


~ light blue mini mixing bowls from Crate and Barrel ~

I love lighting this candle on a gloomy day.

Have you made any little purchases lately?

  2. JoAnne-What sweet finds for under $10. Those are the best kinds of things, aren't they? I bought 2 candles at Walmart- Better Home & Garden and I was surprised at how strong the scent is and how clean they burn.

    LOVE your little blue & white saucer. xo Diana

  7. Wonderful finds! It's so funny because little finds are often my very favorites and most enduring. Cup towels, candles, a pretty old book, those things can make me super happy each time I look at them.

  8. JoAnne, I was just looking at your blog link list and wanted to mention that you have some of the nicest bloggers around on your list. The kind that visit and talk back and forth. That's what I enjoy about blogging.

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…
