15 Awesome Vintage Finds from Etsy

Well, I did it again. I’ve been antique shopping on Etsy. It’s an obsession you guys. But in my defense, Etsy is practically the best virtual flea market in the world. Really, it’s like all of the best antiques and unique vintage finds you could ever dream up and you get to shop while sitting…

Vintage Corbels in the Reading Nook

Well guys, my antique-loving heart is so full today because I finally found the perfect vintage corbels for our reading nook. I’ve literally been searching for corbels for at least a year now, maybe longer, but I just never found any that were the right size or shape for this little space. But I was…

DIY Coat Rack With Vintage Tin

Good morning buttercup and happy Monday to you!! I’m so excited for today’s post for two reasons. First, I haven’t shared a good ol’ fashioned DIY project in a while and this one is pretty fun. And second, this project involves vintage ceiling tin, which is basically the coolest thing ever. You guys, I have…

New Vintage Trunk Coffee Table

Gooooooood morning and happy Monday! It’s an especially happy Monday around here because yesterday was my daughter’s 4th birthday and today is my birthday! Yep, yours truly is another year older. And another year wiser. Or at least that’s what I’m telling myself. This past year has been the busiest and craziest year of my…

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…

  • I can’t believe it’s already been three weeks since our trip to the Silobration. 😍😍 I was so glad my husband could go along with me & I love this shot of us—standing in muddy puddles & soaking wet, but happy as can be. I am so blessed to do life with this guy by my side for over 16 years now. 🙏❤️
  • Rise & shine, it’s coffeeeeeee time! ☕️☕️Can you believe Thanksgiving is only two weeks from today? TWO WEEKS. Time to get yo stretchy pants ready!! 🙌🏻 I’d love to know what Thanksgiving traditions you have in your family. I’m looking for new things to do with the kids & I’m curious if you do anything special or unique to celebrate the day?! 🦃
  • You guys told me you love before & after shots, so here’s another one for you. Swipe right to see how I styled our breakfast nook when we first moved in three years ago. This was actually after I painted the walls, they were dark brown before, and I was pretty happy with how it looked. 😬Obviously we have since updated a few things in this space—I added faux shiplap (it was my first big project & I was so proud I did it all by myself!) and then I added a new light fixture, a different table, shelves, etc. .

The thing that strikes me the most with these two photos is the difference in my style. At the time I was struggling to figure out what I liked & how I could make that work with a tight budget. It didn’t happen over night, but slowly things have evolved in this space & it looks totally different today. And if you think about it, that’s kind of the cool thing about life. Nothing we do is ever perfect when we just start out. There are bumps in the road, struggles, growing pains, etc. But as time goes on we (hopefully) evolve to be better than when we began. And even though it’s nice to get to the pretty after photo, especially if you’re impatient like me, it’s also kind of nice to appreciate the journey. Yes, that’s cheesy as heck. But it’s TRUE. I love looking back at these photos of when we first started out because it reminds me of the journey & how hard we’ve worked on our home. It’s still a work in progress,  but I’m grateful for it all!
  • Today was crazy/surreal/awesome all at the same time. I spent the day working on a project that totally took me out of my comfort zone, but it went so well & I’m happy I decided to push myself & do it. (Watch my stories to see what I’ve been up to!) Then when I got home I had this smiling baby waiting for me at the front door. My husband snapped this picture of us & I just love the look on her little face. This girl is attached to my hip all day every day, so she was very happy to be back with mama. 😍😍 Now it’s time for pizza & cozy clothes!! 🙌🏻🙏
  • I’m still a little ways off from jumping into Christmas decor, but I did pick up a pair of these eucalyptus & pinecone wreaths from Target yesterday. I loooooooove them & now I’m getting a teeny tiny itch to add a few more pops of Christmas into this room. BUT I’m going to hold out a little longer. Anyone else still holding onto pumpkins or have you started to deck the halls?!
  • #flashbackfriday to one of my favorite snapshots with my girl. I can’t believe this was almost a year ago 😭😭 This sweet pea is my little BFF & I shared in stories today about how she teaches me to be brave. I hope you watch it if you’re facing something big in your life right now. It’s a simple, yet powerful reminder that fear is choice & you can face anything in life if you simply make the decision to be brave. #goforit #getthatcandygirl
