Hi all, and happy Wednesday! Hope you’re all enjoying your week. I’ve been busy getting my youngest settled back in school, and we spent this past weekend bringing my daughter back to college for her sophomore year. I tell you, it doesn’t get any easier!
Today I’m (finally) sharing my new-to-me antique farmhouse table! It is now in it’s new home in our breakfast room/kitchen dining area and I couldn’t be happier! I received the table a few months back, but I was waiting until I had found chairs to do the final reveal.
So I’ve been looking for a dining room table for what seems like forever now! Not looking everyday, all-the-time mind you, but looking here and there and shopping around for at least two years. I’ve been looking on the internet, in catalogs, shops, and antique stores, as well as on sites such as Chairish and Ebay.
Hi all, and Happy First Day of Spring! I’m so excited to be sharing my first spring home tour of the season, and I’m joined by eleven of my favorite bloggers who are also sharing their very best spring decorating ideas! If you’re landing here from my friend Lory’s, thanks so much for stopping by. She always has the most beautiful flowers, and I have a feeling this tour will be no exception!
Happy Friday! It’s time for another week of French Country Fridays where we all share French design, decor, DIYs, and entertaining ideas each week.
This week I’ve been feeling so much better. I’ve finally been driving so, of course, one of my first outings was to the antique mall (shocker there)! Not only did it feel so good just to do some “normal” things again, but I found the most amazing French urn! I’ll be sharing it next week when my spring blog hop goes live on Tuesday. I have ten friends joining me so I hope you’ll tune in for that!
Happy Friday, and welcome to another French Country Fridays where we celebrate all things French-ish! I am so thrilled at the response we’ve had to this series! Looks like you all love French inspiration as much as we do 🙂
For me, my love of French Country or French Farmhouse style really lies in the casual spirit of it. It mixes old and new, elegant and casual, in an offhand way that I just love. This style values patina and age, so that things that are chipped or scratched are not only still used, but still loved. Good thing, since much of my furniture is pretty distressed from real life with three kids! My “casual chic” aesthetic really stems from this. The mix of a crystal chandelier with a rusted bucket. Or a chippy table holding a silver candlestick. That mix is what really makes my heart skip a beat!
