LAVENDAR AND BLUE IN THE KITCHEN

Our lilac bushes didn't do very well this year but I did manage
to make a small bouquet for the kitchen.
I thought the color looked really pretty with the light blue
of the ceramic colander.


So when I noticed some lavender colored wildflowers along the creek
in our backyard, I cut some of those and brought them in.


I played around with some different arrangements.
There were a few yellow flowers which I cut as well.



I'm just really loving the lavender and blue combination.




Some of the yellow flowers replaced the lilacs here.


On the table, I grouped some flowers in a basket that I got
 for a couple bucks at a thrift store recently.
I added a sprig of the lavender flowers in my little blue and white cream pitcher.


The tiny white flowers in the white pitcher look more like weeds
but they'll do for now.  : }


All in all, not too bad for free flowers.

Thanks so much to everyone who read my Saturday Spotlight post
at Junk Chic Cottage.  It was so fun to be featured and I really
appreciate all of your super sweet comments!

{And yes, Stacey, peanut butter and mayo - you should try it!}

As always, thank you for visiting!

  10. Your flowers are beautiful, JoA - my lilacs are just beginning to bud.....we have the latest bloomers, so when they do bloom come on over for a cuppa and a visit before your travels, perhaps? I should very much love that. Hugs.

  12. As I read this post I kept 'singing' the old song 'Lavender blue, Dilly dilly - Lavender blue'! Your flowers are so sweet and the way you put them together is wonderful. I think I should go outside and get some flowers to bring inside!

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…
