Youngest Daughter's June Wedding in Colorado


Happy Monday, Friends! It's with great joy today that I'm sharing photos from the recent wedding celebration of Youngest Daughter and Sweet Son-In-Law. You'll notice from the credits that the photography was a collaborative endeavor as they are blessed to have several friends that are talented photographers as well as a couple of videographers, too!

MacKenzie-Childs Enamelware: Friday's Find #253


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! If you popped over to check out today's find expecting to see the popular black and white MacKenzie-Childs Courtly Check, you're in for a surprise. I've admired charming black and white collections on some of my favorite blogs and Instagram accounts, but who knew MacK-C also creates romantic floral enamelware? Not me! I scored this lovely set of 6 featuring my favorite colors with the pattern I'm always drawn to--floral--at an estate sale.

15 Minute No Sew Target Tote Bag Pillow


Happy Monday, Friends! It's been awhile since I've shared a 15 Minute Fix and today I'm  sharing my latest, repurposed from a Target tote bag I found in their bargain dollar spot. It was the perfect solution to recover a faded outdoor pillow and I really love the crisp blue and white ticking for the summer months. Plus, there's absolutely no sewing needed...

Reclaimed Space in the Laundry Room for Drying Herbs


Happy Monday, Friends! Lately, I've been on a mission to make the most of different rooms in my home. A few weeks ago, I rearranged and reorganized to create an office nook in my bedroom that is both beautiful and functional. My latest reclaimed work space is a corner for herb drying in my small laundry room...

Rae Dunn Cookie Jar: Friday's Find #246


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! I have to say finding a Rae Dunn cookie jar at one of the thrift stores I frequent weekly, came as a surprise. To be honest, because my Instagram feed is daily bombarded with collections from the popular designer, I have not been one to jump on the RD bandwagon. However, I do love scoring the unexpected during my thrifting jaunts...

Thrifty Vintage Vanity Floral Inspired Bedroom Office Nook


Happy Monday, Friends! My home will be 19 years old this June and since the master bedroom is the only room I haven't repainted, I decided it was long overdue! As is often the case with my decor projects, one thing led to another so this will be the first of two blog posts featuring my thrifty floral inspired bedroom refresh. I spent less than $50--including the paint! I'm starting with one of the few pieces of furniture I haven't shared on the blog before, my vintage vanity...

Jadeite Batter Bowl: Friday's Find #243


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! A few months ago, I shared my first thrifted batter bowl find. Determined to stay true to my task of selling more than I keep, I listed the pretty milk glass bowl in my Etsy shop. You can only imagine how thrilled I was when I found this small jadeite batter bowl that matches the larger mixing bowl that came with my vintage 1940s stand mixer. Since the bottoms of these bowls aren't marked except for the occasional small number 6, you'll often see them identified as Fire-King. However, the slightly different shade of green is consistent with my marked pieces of McKee, manufactured in the 30s and 40s. Also, the glass is thicker and heavier than the Fire-King bowls I've collected. Regardless, this sweet little bowl is a keeper!
