A PRETTY ENAMEL MILK CAN

I needed a therapy session the other day so I headed to Homegoods.
I had not been there in a long time so it was a miracle that I walked out
with only one item ~ this pretty enamel milk can.


I had to have it the minute I saw it.


It has the perfect touch of blue around the rim and the cutest wooden handle.


The only thing that could make it better is some peonies.
This is about the last of our peonies and they're looking a little
bedraggled but I still think they're beautiful.


Yep, I definitely benefited from that therapy session!

Life has been especially crazy lately with the end of the school year and getting
ready for our trip so I haven't been able to respond to comments like I want to.
  Just want you to know that I so appreciate every comment and visit!

As always, thank you!

  6. JoAnne,
    What a pretty purchase. I chuckled how you referred to going to Home Goods as therapy, I refer to shopping at TJ Max and Marshalls as flea marketing! loving the touch of blue in the rim and that sweet wooden handle.

  9. Love your new milk can!! We have a HomeGoods about 30 minutes from where I live, but I haven't been there in a long time. Might have to go see if I can find me a milk can for my farmhouse kitchen.

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…
