One Stop Shopping - Farmhouse Style

Hello everyone!

I'm so glad to finally be posting again! It turns out that the online photo editing website, PicMonkey, decided to begin charging for anyone who uses their site.  So, I needed to do a little homework and find another free site.  I didn't feel like I should pay for something that someone else can offer for free and I get the same thing in return!  So, for those of you who are looking for a free online imaging website that does virtually the same thing as PicMonkey (in my mind), try using Ribbet instead.  Thank you to  Lisa at Fern Creek Cottage for your recommendation! 

What I wanted to share with you was my trip to Kirklands and all their great farmhouse style goodies for sale!  My friend Kris at Junk Chic Cottage did a blog post back in early August about Kirklands.  I was so impressed, that I decided to go back and see what all my store had too.  You can see her post HERE.  I am not being compensated either.  These are items that caught my eye and were on sale during Labor Day. 

They have loads of farmhouse style goodies for serving in your kitchen.

My Favorite Faux Plants for Farmhouse Style

Hello everyone!

Can you believe it's September now?  This is the month that starts making me ready for Fall.  This is also the month when I think kids should go back to school.  I can't believe mine went back a month ago.  That's like summer school!  I think the way it was when I was growing up was the best.  It wouldn't surprise me if we eventually go to year round school.  Kind of sad! But.......that's not what I want to talk about today.  I want to talk about some of my favorite plants and their sources for a casual farmhouse style.  That includes modern and French style as well.  I love a mix of both actually.  
I love a few plants scattered around the house for that homey feeling.  I am not a live plant purist.  So, if you don't like faux, then you can just move along.  

The first plant is one that EVERYONE has been after lately.  It's the quint essential fiddle leaf fig.

Farmhouse "Black"

Hello everyone!

First of all, if you are in the path of Hurricane Harvey, I hope you will be safe and have minimal property damage!  I can only imagine how challenging it would be to deal with that while living on the coast.  The coast is both beautiful and treacherous at the same time!

I am starting to feel just a tinge of Fall in the air these days.  It's been cooler in the mornings and evenings and the humidity isn't very high today.  Maybe that will explain the need to change up a few things around my home.  Not too much, but just a little.  

I've introduced more black in my home to contrast with the creams and whites that I have throughout.  I'm liking the depth it gives the rooms.  

First, are these pillows and rug I placed in my foyer.
