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.
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 have a thing for white windows. In fact, I have been buying them for quite some time. The only problem is, I haven’t been good about finding a way to use them in my house.
Every once in awhile I will see something on Instagram or Pinterest that just stops me in my tracks. When I saw the ladder chandelier that @lizmariegalvin put above her dining room table I was blown away. It was brilliant.
A few months ago I was asked if I wanted to participate in a Summer Home Blog Tour. There are so many bloggers that I admire participating in the tour and I can’t believe they asked me to join them. Needless to say, I am very excited and just so you know, the tour goes live on July 24th.
There is something about old school lockers that I love. Technically I don’t collect them. I only have three sets of them and I think to collect something you must have, say, five or more. So I just like them. I don’t collect them.
We actually have four sets of lockers in our house. When we did the big remodel in 2000, I wanted a set of lockers for the boys for all of their “stuff” that typically sat in our entryway. This included backpacks, sports equipment, and shoes. Tons of shoes. So we had these lockers built in the mud room. (And their names are cut out for ventilation. Which was a very good idea… boys!)
