FEATURE AT JUNK CHIC COTTAGE AND FRONT DOOR RESULTS

Kris at Junk Chic Cottage has been so sweet to feature me
as her Saturday Spotlight today.
Kris is one of the nicest bloggers around and I really appreciate
the opportunity to be her guest.
Thank you, Kris!


JUNK CHIC COTTAGE

Recently, I posted about choosing a new front door for our house
and I showed you four choices.
Well, the door that received the most votes by far was No. 4.
I have to say, I think it's a great choice and I loved getting
so much input from so many of you so thank you!
Here is No. 4 all proud and dressed up with a 
pretty spring wreath.


Now I just have to keep hinting around to hubby 
that this is the one I would like!

If you have a chance, click on over to Junk Chic Cottage to find
out a couple things about me that you may not even want to know - ha ha!
And if you're not familiar with Kris' blog, you will definitely want to stay awhile.


She has a beautiful home and a beautiful style.
I know you will love it!

HAPPY WEEKEND AND HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

  4. Hi JoAnne, great meeting you over at Junk Chic Cottage! I just wanted to pop on over to say hello and wish you a fabulous trip to Europe this summer. Three summers ago I accompanied my husband on a business trip to Germany (my first time in Europe) and fell in love. I promise you will be yearning to go back when you get home. Enjoy!

  9. Hey Jo - yes that door is awesome and I can't wait till he catches the hint (nudge nudge, wink wink)

    My kitty is still sick, haven't been able to do much in the way of blogging, gotta keep priorities.

    I have so much to share, I need two of me lately!

    Love Kris, going over there to catch your feature, congrats. Hugs.

  16. Hi JoAnne, I was already following your blog, but loved getting to know a little more about you through spotlight. Your journey coming up sounds so interesting in all aspects, from the planning choices you made to the undoubtedly interesting fuel you'll have for future blogging. I, for one, will really be looking forward to your tips for that kind of travel. Happy Mother's Day!

  18. Choosing a new front door can be such a challenge. I think people only realize when they are picking it out that it will actually make their home look very different. I have always been a fan of the historical ones that are heavier. But I do also like a more farmhouse look that has windows and is more welcoming.

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…
