Last month I had the pleasure of visiting Bolthouse Farms® in San Joaquin Valley, CA. They have been growing carrots since 1915, which coincidentally is the same year my 100 year old home was built. I have to be honest, I knew nothing about carrots prior to this visit. Although I do remember learning in third grade that carrots were good for your eyes (and given my eyesight, I probably should have remembered that important carrot fact).
Two years ago I attended the Haven Conference. If you have no idea what the Haven Conference is, it’s a design and DIY blogging conference for home decor bloggers and influencers. It is usually held in July and most years it has been in Atlanta, Ga. I attended my first Haven Conference four months after I started my @my100yearoldhome Instagram and blog. I walked in the door on the first day and knew no one. Not a single person.
Can you believe it is July already? The weather has been wonderful in Southern California and we are really enjoying our outdoor living rooms. Today I am thrilled to team up with some of my blogging friends to share our outdoor living rooms. In the summertime, we love spending time outdoors and today I am sharing five tips to enjoy your outdoor living space.
There are always challenges living in a one hundred year old home. The lighting still blinks when the A/C comes on. We have one outlet in the dining room and it’s in the middle of the floor (underneath my rug). And until now, we haven’t been able to leave our french doors open because we have no screen doors. But that has all changed, thanks to my partnership with Phantom Screens.
I love creating spring tablescapes! I am always setting table year round. But I truly enjoy setting spring tablescapes the most. I love pulling out my china and finding fun ways to bring color to a table. This year I have been busy creating lots of tablescapes. I just set this one in a blush color palette which was enhanced with homemade floral placemats!
