Road Trip to Round Top and Warrenton


Happy Wednesday, Friends! It's Texas Antique Week in the Round Top/Warrenton area. I went early with my friend Carly and I'll be sharing our adventures, finds and favorite stomping grounds from the trip in my next few posts. Exactly one week ago, we headed out bright and early...

The Art of Thrifting Guest Post at White Spray Paint


Happy Monday, Friends! One of the best perks of blogging is the lovely people I meet. Though I've only met most of you via email or comments, it's been a pleasure! I met Laura, the blogger behind White Spray Paint through the Thoughts of Home party she co-hosts. We began following each other on Instagram and soon discovered our common interest in hunting for hidden treasure in unlikely places. Be it a thrift store or flea market, we are drawn to the thrill of the hunt and the desire to create beauty for less.  When Laura asked if I would like to guest post for a series she is featuring about thrifting, I was intrigued. I absolutely love the title that she chose because I agree that there truly is an art to thrifting--one that is easily cultivated.  It just takes a little practice ;) I hope you'll follow me over and share your thoughts on thrifting in the comments!

Friday's Find #164 Plus a Farmhouse Fall Vignette!


TGITF Friends! When I spied this tall wooden bushel basket sitting outside Lemons & Lace, I had to turn the car around and go and check it out. It made me think of gathering apples in crisp fall weather, and was just begging to go home with me!  So of course I obliged...

Thyme to Be Grateful Fall Tablescape


Hi there, Friends! One of my biggest priorities is to consistently cultivate a heart of gratitude, which is especially meaningful during the fall season. Not only is there the anticipation of Thanksgiving, but the celebration of autumn harvest seems to encourage a grateful heart. Today I'm sharing my tablescape and embracing a thyme to be grateful...

How to Use Cake Stands to Create A Tiered Tray Display


Hi Friends! I have been inspired to participate with the lovely bloggers at the Thoughts of Home party for their Seasonal Tiered Tray Extravaganza. If this sounds like fun to you as well, drop by and visit Laura, Jemma, Stacey, or Laura and link up your tiered tray decor. If you would like to join the fun, but like me, are one of the few people who don't already have a tiered tray, why not create your own? Here's how I did it...

Vintage Milk Glass Fall Mantel


Hi there, Friends! Now that September is here, I've been adding a few fall accents, starting with my mantel. I'm a firm believer in shopping my home and finding new ways to arrange what I already have for seasonal displays.  It's been a few years since I styled the mantel with milk glass and I've been wanting to feature my vintage collection. As usual, I've added some natural elements, some traditional favorites and even...

Friday's Find #161


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! Today I'm sharing the rest of the treasures scored from the sisters' crafty yard sale I attended recently, plus a few thrift store finds too. When I arrived at the packed sale, there were only a few of these vintage quilt scrap bundles left and I grabbed both! I'm still debating whether to part with them or use them for crafts myself...
