I’m super excited to share this post with you today. I know some of you follow me over on Instagram, and those who do probably know that this past winter we finally took the plunge and ripped out our downstairs carpet and installed hardwood floors. Because of that, I’ve been wanting to do a post sharing the floors for quite awhile now. However, I really wanted to have my rugs in place first, because, let’s face it, rugs can really make the room! And that’s where my problem began.[...]
Today’s Friday Favorites is all about baskets. I have always been a fan of baskets. In fact, when I was in 7th grade I was allowed to “decorate” my room all by myself for the first time and I chose to hang different sized and shaped baskets on the wall over my bed! I don’t quite know where I got the idea, but I do remember loving it! I still love baskets, though now I buy vintage baskets whenever I can. There is something so charming about them! They have an age and patina that the new ones don’t. And the ones with writing, or buckles or straps? Be still my heart![...]
Hi everyone and welcome to our Fall Blog Hop. If you’re coming here from Mysha at Remington Avenue, thank you so much and I’m glad to have you here! Today I’m part of a hop that has 15 bloggers sharing fall decor and inspiration with you![...]
An arrangement I did last spring with white hydrangeas and seeded eucalyptus in a vintage ironstone pitcher.And the best thing about them? They work year-round in decorating. Other flowers have a very seasonal association. Peonies in the spring, paper whites in the winter, or gladiolas in the summer. But hydrangeas really are around most of the year, so they look great at any time, for any occasion. They look spring-y and fresh in the spring and summer months (especially the Limelights that have a slightly green tinge), but they also look amazing in the winter. I love them mixed with eucalyptus in fall, or pine and berries at Christmas.
Seriously?! Does it get any lovelier than this? I adore the white hydrangeas against the old wooden box.

I don’t know about you, but I didn’t even know what a “dough bowl” was until about three years ago! I think I first saw them in my local antiques store, and then again on a blog. And then on another blog. And that’s when I became intrigued and had to find one. Maybe it’s because I’m a baker, but there is something so romantic about antique dough bowls! I love the thought that someone once made homemade bread in them, that they were used to feed their family and friends. And their patina! Now there are plenty of reproductions around these days, but the patina on the real ones is far superior. It’s taken years of work and use to make them look the way they do, and that’s a pretty hard thing to copy.[...]
