~Vintage Farmhouse Style~

I started doing Shows years ago because I had accumulated too much for my own home.  I buy what I love for the home and garden in a vintage farmhouse style and have a few different venues that I will be selling at in 2017. 

These photos are from a a fun Pop-up Shop I participated in April at a beautiful vineyard in West Linn called Tumwater Barrel House Tasting Room.  It was the perfect venue where you could order a glass of wine and shop the many different vendors wares.

I will be keeping you posted on upcoming Shows as they approach here on my blog as well as my Instagram account and Facebook page.  My booths are always filled with vintage farmhouse furniture, chippy architectural pieces, lots of garden elements and of course ....ironstone.

The next event is at the Oregon State Fairgrounds in Salem, OR in Columbia Hall this Saturday May 20th 10-4 with an early buying option starting at 9 am.  You can go to Linda's site HERE for more info. 

If you are local I'd love to see you.  My booth is straight down the aisle from the main entrance along the back wall #78

I know I've been MIA from this Blog lately and have some changes to share that we've been working on around our home and you can always keep in touch with me on my Instagram account where I post daily.

Have a great week!

It's hard to believe the first week of February is almost over, although with all the snow, cold temps and abundance of rain we've been having, Winter can't end soon enough for me.  I miss the sun and am ready for flowers blooming in my garden. 

 I have to admit any time I am at the florist section of the grocery store or at a nursery this time of year the flowers like these tulips seem to actually jump into my cart.... they seem to help get me through the dreary days of Winter.

Also trying to add bits of color around the house like these French glass bottles on my bottle rack.

 And items from nature as in antlers seem to find their way into bowls and arrangements.

I was going through some of my vintage items recently and decided to stack this trio of chippy white benches in the dining room.  My favorite being this little guy on top from France.  You can't go wrong with all this chippiness and beautiful blooms any time of year. 

I'm hoping Spring comes quickly and that you have a wonderful weekend!

~Merry Christmas~

It's hard for me to believe it's already Christmas Day as this year went by very quickly. I chose to let go of some stress this year for the Holidays and decorated minimally and as I had time.  I did finally get a few photos of some areas as in my front porch all decked out this year. 

Once again we got a Charlie Brown tree for the living room.  

Not too much in this area but a boxwood wreath, cedar greens and pinecones along with paper whites. 

The same types of simple natural items on these shelves in the kitchen.

Another tree in a basket for the dining room which I hung only stars.

And a rosemary tree and some greens in an ironstone tureen complete this space.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

~Winter Wonderland~

We've  already had quite the Winter weather in the PNW even though today is officially the first day of Winter.

It looked quite magical around our property with all the snow and ice on the trees, not so much fun having icy roads to drive on though!

Our white farmhouse blended in nicely with all the snow and this stuck around for five days as the temperatures just got above freezing here yesterday.

This is a view of our frozen pond down below our back patio.

Looking through the courtyard into the garden area and if you look closely you can see our dog Barley on the driveway.

Another area inside the fence of the garden.

And an apple tree.

The potting shed looks extra festive surrounded by snow this Holiday season.

Most of this snow is gone now, but looks like we might get some more toward the end of the week.  Who knows, it might be a white Christmas after all.
