Hey friends, Happy Friday!!! Who’s as excited as I am that it’s finally the weekend? (Raise your hand!).
Hey friends, the fab pins of the week is making a come back!! Some of you may have been around to see that we started up a weekly link party, but it just didn’t end up working out due to schedule conflicts and other priorities between the other bloggers and I. No hurt feelings here, but with that said, I’ve decided to bring back something I really love doing each week! Sharing my favorite finds with you and inspiring you just a bit!
This week I have been inspired by simple charm! I think each of these pictures speak for themselves, and I have no doubt you will leave here feeling (at least a little bit) inspired!
Thanks for stopping by and starting your weekend out with me!!
Go be inspiring!!
Hi friends! I can’t believe we are already three weeks into the new year. Time is flying and I feel like I haven’t gotten much done around the house. I did push myself to put away my Winter tablescape and start with something fresh! I opted for a sweet shabby, vintage-inspired centerpiece, which is what I’m sharing with you all today!
How important is a good nights sleep to you? It’s pretty darn important (and necessary) for me! Well today I have the pleasure of sharing with you 5 tips to creating a tranquil bedroom! You’ll be sleeping better in no time 😉
It’s a new year and many of us make new years resolutions to become more organized. I wanted to share a few stylish options for you to remain organized around your home for an affordable price! Becoming organized and staying that way doesn’t have to be difficult! Especially if you’re using items that fit your style and are easy to use!
Hello! I can hardly believe that this is the last few days of 2015! Wow, what a year it has been… In all honesty, one I’ve never experienced before. I wish that I could say it was all wonderful things, but I would be lying. This year, I experienced some things I never thought I would. And I hope that after all it’s said and done, that I’ve learned from them. I am eagerly looking forward to 2016! Without sounding like a negative Nancy, I would like to take a moment to mention some of the many things I AM blessed for this year… My husband, my children, my faith, my family, my friends, my home, my car, my blog and all of you! As the year comes to an end, I wanted to gather my 10 most popular posts of 2015.
Do tell me though, how was your year?
Hello friends! To some I may be known as the crazy sign lady… What? No, no one has ever called me that! 😉 But, I love signs… I love making signs. Can you ever have enough of them? When the opportunity came up to work with Wall Masque stencil company, they told me they had a customized stencil option. I hopped on that like a hot cake, that is right up my alley!
The process for submitting a custom design was rather simple. I created an image using PicMonkey and sent it to them. Within minutes, I had a response that my design had been accepted, and I received my stencil a couple of days later! I opted for “farmhouse chic hardware co.” because it’s so fitting to our household! Of course my blog is Farmhouse Chic, but my husband also builds custom farmhouse tables, so it was a no brainer!
To begin, my husband took three narrow pallet planks and screwed them to a small piece of plywood. I sanded the wood down for a smooth consistency. Next, grab your stencil and tape into place. Using a foam brush take your desired paint and blot over the stencil. I used folkArt home decor chalk paint in white adirondack. It’s my go-to for projects! Don’t get paint happy, use a small amount so it doesn’t create puddling, you can always go back over it if needed. Remove your stencil while the paint is still wet! I allowed my sign to dry completely, and I roughed it up very little using a sanding block. To finish, I sprayed with with a matte clear coat. We hung that pretty up and just love it <3
Wall Masque is one of my awesome sponsors in my current giveaway!! Don’t miss your opportunity to win a credit for anything you like from them! They have some beautiful stencils and, of course, the customized option! Click HERE to enter the giveaway! Giveaway ends midnight November 13th, 2015.

Hello there! It’s a pleasure to have you here today! As much as I am ready to bust out all of the Christmas decor and start decorating, I want to take a little time to reflect on just how thankful I am! I think it’s important that we don’t lose site of Thanksgiving and what it signifies! There is absolutely nothing wrong with decorating for Christmas early (and believe me, I will be!), but I also want to take some time to focus on the Holiday we celebrate this month first! Today I will be sharing with you my elegant Thanksgiving tablescape!
Hey you, thanks for stopping by today! I know, just last week I shared my Fall 2015 Home Tour, but just like that I’ve taken down my Fall mantel and decorated for Halloween! I normally don’t decorate for Halloween, but this year my little ones have convinced me to, and I’m very pleased with how my non-traditional chic Halloween mantel turned out!
Well hello there! I’m so happy you stopped by today! Today I’m sharing my Fall Home Tour 2015 with you all!! I have been so stinkin’ busy lately preparing for the Fall Barn Sale in a couple days, that I honestly haven’t even pulled out my usual seasonal decor. So, needless to say, so far this Fall I have decorated mildly, but I’m still loving it! Please come in, kick your feet up and get cozy for a bit!
Our little Corgi, Lola, is ready to welcome you with puppy kisses at the door! Did you get the chance to check out my Fall front porch I shared last week? You can check out that post here! As soon as you walk into our home, we have a very open concept and I wanted to try to capture that for you all, as best as possible! Immediately to your right you will see the Windsor bench I shared with you all a few weeks ago! You can view that post here! I had fun adding a tarnished champagne bucket and rolled book pages! It feels like such a cozy spot!
Our living room is a large open space with cathedral ceilings, that opens up to our formal dining room and kitchen. As you may well know, I decorate with a lot of neutrals, so this home tour is showcasing that style. We plan to remodel the kitchen this late Fall/Winter, so I didn’t share any pics of the kitchen. It’s the only part of my house that I feel doesn’t “fit”. We have maple cabinets and green countertops, yuck! We can’t wait to get started on that project!!
Here’s a peek at our eat-in kitchen too! This beautiful vintage birdcage and the adorable mini green urn will be for sale at the Fall Barn Sale this week!
Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to tour my home! I hope you have a wonderful week!
