It was almost a year ago when I realized for the first time there was a National Coffee Day. Believe it or not, that was the day I decided to get rid of the coffee station in my Butler’s Pantry. Why?
I just finished a fun room renovation project in our home and I am jumping up and down because I love it. I added new paint colors in our boy’s bedroom and cannot believe the impact it has made in the room. I reached outside of my comfort zone and went more bold than usual and I am so happy I did!
Last week I realized summer was over and it was time for a new project. The double bedded boys room upstairs needed the most attention and really needed some help. If you are trying to figure out which room it is in our home, don’t worry. You have never seen it before. It was that bad.
When people ask me “What style decor is your home?”, I always answer “Vintage flea market decor”. It’s true. I am sure the majority of the items in my home were bought at a flea market. I have been shopping at vintage flea markets for about thirty years and today I am going to share with you some of my insider tips to flea market shopping.
If you look at the photo of our back porch, there are twenty-two items in this photo that I bought at a flea market. So trust me, I know how to shop a flea market.
Hydrangeas are my favorite flower. Now don’t get me wrong, I love peonies and tulips. And roses. But there is something about hydrangea flowers that just make me happy. Arranging hydrangeas is not hard. What I like to do is use different containers to arrange my hydrangea flowers. Often I use containers that aren’t even vases. I think this makes the appearance more interesting and fun to arrange!
The weather has cooled off a bit and my home smells fabulous from my Pumpkin Spice candle from Antique Candleworks. This feeling of fall has arrived at our home and I am motivated to cook! I am thrilled that today I have teamed up with six bloggers to share fifteen fabulous pumpkin recipes. I cannot wait to try them all myself.
Yum. I love Pumpkin Ravioli with Sage Brown Butter Sauce. Especially when the pasta is homemade. So today I got out my Kitchen Aid mixer and made some fresh ravioli. And I didn’t even use a recipe.
