I have been collecting vintage cake stands for years. I honestly thought I was the only person that collected these. Then last year I opened my Magnolia Magazine and sure enough, I found another wise person who collects cake stands … Joanna Gaines.
As I sit here and realize our house is finally decorated for the holidays, I can catch my breath for a minute. As much as I loved decorating every room in our house, decorating the kitchen for Christmas was a special experience.
Now that my husband and I are empty nesters, I find it harder to do the grocery shopping. The days of having three athletic boys to feed (all. day. long) are less frequent and the cupboards are a lot more bare. Oddly enough though, it seems like we run out of things more frequently. I know it doesn’t make sense but it’s true. The extra food that used to fill our cupboards is non-existent.
I love finding a great bargain (who doesn’t?!). In fact, I always use google to look for lower prices whenever I want to buy something. And I always take it a few steps further to make sure I’m getting the best price. As a result, I rarely pay full price! It’s almost become a game to me… and I’m sure I’m not alone in that!
A lot of us love the look of farmhouse decor. It’s simple. It’s relaxed. And a lot of it is about finding items that were once found in older homes or treasured by others before us. And the best part? You don’t have to live on a farm to style your home in this style. Farmhouse style is relaxed, focuses on the land and is based on you doing a lot of the things yourself! Which is one of the reasons why styling your house in farmhouse decor isn’t crazy expensive!
