A Pretty Corner in the Front Room

Do you guys remember a few weeks ago when I majorly simplified the dining room? I cleared out lots of the extra stuff, hung up new botanical artwork and basically de-cluttered the entire area. Well during that process I ended up moving my antique pie safe into our front room, which was pretty much the only place I could put it in the entire house. Well, other than the basement but who wants to carry a huge cabinet downstairs? Not this girl. No thank you. Anyway, it’s been in a corner of our front room now for a few weeks and I’ve been meaning to share it with you guys because it looks pretty darn cute. I styled it with a few new little things, but I kept it super simple for the most part!

Ok, first off can we talk about this super cute, vintage-y periodic table? I found it at Target and I just fell in love with it. Plus I think this will come in handy if I ever need to know the atomic number of something like magnesium or nitrogen. Because you know, those things are very important in my day to day life. Obviously.

I found those vintage Bingo cards on our little trip to the mountains last weekend. Aren’t those so cool?! I got a whole stack of them for eight bucks, which I thought was pretty darn good. I always love adding small finds like that to my antique collection.

This is a simple little corner, but that antique pie safe is a special piece to me because it actually belonged to my mom for many, many years. Now she’s letting me “borrow” it. And by borrow it I mean keep it at my house until she makes me give it back to her. But I’ve had it over a year now, so we’re going strong. (Thanks mom!) Anyway, it’s fun to style this cabinet with pretty little things and I’m actually glad we moved it in the front room. It was a way too large for our small dining room, so this feels like a much better fit. Plus that corner was just sitting empty, so I think it was meant to be.

Thank you SO much for dropping in and hanging out with me here on the blog today. I ALWAYS appreciate it!!

    You really have a knack for styling, Sarah! For some, that is the hardest part.
    You may know what to get, but putting it together so well is not as easy as it looks for some of us.
    So pretty, really draws the eye!

  • Sometimes I wonder what my kids will think when they look back on these little squares I share here everyday.

And even on the hard days & the days I feel like I can’t do it all, I love this life & I’m so grateful to God for every minute of it. 💛🙏

  • Happy Friday!! 🙋‍♀️ I’m talking about one of my favorite things on the blog today: SKINCARE!! You guys, for the first time ever this week I got on stories with NO makeup. Not one drop of foundation or concealer on my face & no filter. I know that may not sound like a big deal to some of you, but as someone who’s seriously struggled with skin issues throughout her entire life, it’s a HUGE step for me. I’ve always felt SO self-conscious of my skin & it’s been a struggle since I was in high school. But my skin has improved so much & I owe that to @tula. I’ve been religiously using their products for close to two years now & I’ve seen major improvements through that time. 🙏🙏 I shared all about their holiday gift kits on the blog today, so hop over there if you want to check it out. They’re offering some amazing kits, so now is a great time to stock up on your favorites & of course they make great gifts too. AND the kind folks at @tula gave me a new coupon code for you guys—you can use SARAHJOY for 20% off your order 🎉🎉 #partner #tula
