{Saturday Shopping } 5/20/17




I am still on the hunt for unusual blue accents for the new living room area.
Amazon was quick to point out these pillow covers.
I love that they were a little different and will add some print to the area.
And they were cheap... less that $4 each... SOURCE.

{Simple Decorating Ideas} Adding A Touch Of Burlap



Welcome back dear sweet followers...
Today's idea is easy on the pocketbook and quick to do.
But these little touches are so fun and make a big impact.


Spring and Summer are my favorite seasons.
I love warm weather and the brighter colors we can add to our spaces.
So today I am taking a hum-drum little terra cotta pot and faux sedum and adding some country charm.

{Repurposed Furniture} Sweet Vintage Dresser


We've had much more spare time since selling our farmhouse...
And waiting on the new house to be done.
Spare time is not a good thing for me.
I think of too many things I want to be doing.
This is what I found last week.
This lovely vintage girl with a really bad paint job.
And she was CHEAP.... forty bucks cheap.
Do we have room for a project... no.
Do we have any room to store it... no.
But she came home with us.

{Saturday Shopping} May 13, 2017


Yes, I have been in a shopping mood.
I go in phases.
But with the new build I am in full on hunt mode.

So here are a few things I really took to this week.
Maybe it's just what you are looking for too.

{Sweet Tea Diary} May 12, 2017



Yep, she's gone off the deep end.
Gone from talking to herself--- to doing a online diary.
Hee... it was bound to happen.

But sometimes I have things to say that don't have a thing to do about design.
So here is my new thing...

Starting With A Firm Foundation

Yes, finally after all this wait....



They are starting on the house this week!
YEAH!!!

No, nothing really to show you.
Unless you like to see a porta-potty,
rebarb and concrete blocks.

But it is so great to see something happening at our lot!

So I wanted to share with you something I did at the Farmhouse.
And something I am doing this week for this home...

I am burying a Bible in the Foundation Of Our Home.

New Computer and My Vintage Desk

Yes... another new post from me!
I've been on a roll this week.
Part of it is I got a new computer.... after 7-8 years nursing my old desktop.
I know, it was a miracle it lasted that long.
But I now have upgraded... to a touch screen desktop.

{Color Inspirations} Denim Blues


 So yes, I am starting to find things for the new house.
Today I ordered these lovely drapes from Wayfair after looking online for quite a bit.
I had been inspired by another home's blue drapes
and how they drew so much attention in a neutral room.

The Perfect Floor Lamp....

Yes, I've been shopping.
Guilty.
But I will tell you... I needed it!
ya...ya... I know.
The little rental living room is so dark during the day.
I am missing all my natural light.
My last floor lamp broke in the move....
So I've been on the hunt for a few months.

When we moved down here and I thought I would be a die hard HomeGoods gal.
Don't get me wrong... you can get me in there any day and I will find something.

But Kirkland's has my heart...♥
And it's where I found my perfect floor lamp.

It has the prefect amount of distressing.
And it is HUGE!
68 inches tall... that's almost 6 ft!

Parting Ways With Favorite Things....

So I've been doing some thinking.
I know... dangerous right?

For this post I will be using some of the photos of my old blog,

I've been thinking about how I want the new house to feel.
More than ever before, it is a new slate.


That is a good thing, and a bad thing for me.
You see... I'm a creature of habit.

When I talk about the new build it seems so far off.
But in a few months I will be unpacking and deciding what  to use.

Which is why I think I need to start now.
Parting with a few of my things...
Okay, more than a few.
