Fire Pit Goals

Hello everyone!

My backyard is slowly becoming a better place to relax and entertain in.  We most likely will replace our back deck with a larger one if it's not SUPER expensive and possibly add a roof over some of it (if it's possible). Those are grand wishes for now.  Time will tell if that ever happens.  However, one thing that did happen was getting a fire pit area established.  We still have more work to do with it but at least it's a start.  

I ordered four wooden adirondack (folding) chairs and a copper kettle fire pit from Wayfair.  We set it up in the woods that border our back yard.

(We need to have that ugly pine tree cut down.)

Let's Go Shopping!

Hello everyone!

I hope you've had a good week.  It has been a busy one for me with doctor appointments and visiting my mom in the rehab center.  She is recovering from a broken pelvis sustained from a bad fall.  It has been nice and sunny all week though. So that has helped a lot!  

Last week, I went to a cute shop about 30 minutes from my home.  I took some pics to share with you because I know how fun it is to tour a cute store.  So, we'll just go virtual shopping together!  

It's located in a cute town with country roads (but a lot of traffic). The store is inside a historic home. It's called Urban Farmhouse.  Even the name is cute!

I will just let you look at the photos.

Sprucing up the Front Porch for Spring

Hello everyone!

This week we have had some amazingly beautiful weather!  It has been sunny in the 70's all week with no humidity.  I wish I could bottle it up and save it forever!  I've tried to go outside everyday and enjoy it while it lasts.  Because, you know it won't!  

One way I've done that is by sprucing up my front porch.  I bought some ferns to go beside the front door and hung my magnolia wreath on the door. A new larger door mat was placed front and center too.

Warming Up a White Kitchen

Hello everyone!

I love the color white.  That's no secret.  But, besides texture, the warmth of natural wood is a great way to warm up the space when you have a lot of white in a room. I wanted to share some examples of that in my kitchen. 

 Kitchens can seem cold if you don't have a lot of color so bringing in something to soften the space is a welcome addition. Besides draperies, using upholstered or slip covered furniture is a great way to do that. I have a pine farmhouse table with wooden cross back chairs that I love.  But, I recently added these white slip covered chairs to the ends that are soft and have adorable ties on the back.
