We Found New Outdoor Patio Furniture!

We have wanted to replace our twenty-year-old patio furniture for years. We found new furniture at Arhaus and we now have the most gorgeous outdoor patio furniture ever!

We did it! We replaced our teak outdoor patio furniture on our back porch. And guess what? We replaced our 23-year-old teak furniture with new teak furniture from Arhaus! This Arhaus furniture is by far one of the nicest things we have ever done in our home. We have all spent so much time on our back porch these last few days and I couldn’t be any happier. You should also know that Arhaus is having a big outdoor sale right now!

A Week of Giveaways

Last week I celebrated my one year anniversary on Instagram. I wasn’t even going to mention it but I really wanted to thank all of you for your support and encouragement this past year. Then I came up with an idea to give away five of my favorite things during the week. And I was determined to make it happen.

So I made a list of my favorite things that I could afford to give away. Here is the list I came up with.

  1. My vintage black and white flowered dinner plates. (Winner was Debi @treasure.nest)

2. Fresh hydrangeas delivered by Flowers by Gallonei. (Winner was Nancy @whiteshabbycottage)

3. Pier 1 burlap placemats (Winner is Holly @clintonrivercottage.)

4. Galvanized vases by @saveoncrafts. (Winner is Traci @tracidburges)

5. Silhouette Cameo machine (Winner is Emily @belleofthefarm!!!) And thank you @silhouette for sponsoring this fabulous prize!

Thanks so much to all of you for participating in the giveaways. I hope to do this soon again.


GIVEAWAY CLOSED // Rae Dunn Coffee and Tea Canister

CONGRATS TO @SARAHKATEHOOD! Thanks to everyone who entered!


It’s been a while since I have been Rae Dunn hunting. So last week I made a few visits to Home Goods and TJ Maxx and I got lucky. I only bought a few items and left plenty on the shelves. Is it just me or does it seem that the inventory on the shelves is more plentiful? I have also noticed the after market prices are going down and that makes me very happy.
