Flea Market Decor Feature- Celebrating an Exciting Moment!
Today I wanted to pop in real quick to share an exciting moment with you guys because our home was recently featured in the holiday edition of Flea Market Decor magazine!! It’s actually a seven page spread and an interview, which is pretty darn exciting for this small town girl. I wasn’t really planning on even mentioning it here, because it honestly feels awkward to talk about things like this, but I wanted to celebrate this moment with all of you who have supported me for so long.
Flea Market Decor Feature
Things like this always make me reflect on my journey. And I’m actually coming up on the three year blogging anniversary. It was Black Friday three years when I finally took the plunge and decided to start blogging. I published my first posts in December of 2015. And even though I had absolutely no idea what I was doing, I was so excited to start something new and share my passion for home in my little corner of the internet.
Since then this blog has grown beyond anything I ever could have imagined. It’s been a labor of love and I’ve poured my heart, energy, and soul into this space in more ways than I could ever explain. And through it all, God has been so good to me. He’s blessed me beyond measure and I’ll always give Him the glory for any success or good fortune that comes my way.
I can’t describe how much it means to me when a magazine finds my work worthy of being in print. It’s a lot to put yourself out there on a daily basis–your home, your ideas, your projects, etc. It’s scary at times and to be completely honest, I’ve wondered on many occasions over this past year if it’s all worth it. I’ve had moments of burn out, times of struggle, and times of just feeling spread way too thin. So much time and effort goes into this space and I always pray for God to show me His purpose in all of this. And just when my heart really needs a boost, or a sign to show me that I’m doing good work, He always delivers. This Flea Market Decor magazine feature is an example of that and I am SO grateful.
Thank you for your support!
I want you all to know how much I appreciate your support and kindness. I know I say it a lot, but it’s true. Know that I never, ever take that support for granted because I know there are a lot of amazing blogs out there and a lot of other ways you could spend your time. So the fact that you drop by here each day, if even only for a few minutes to see what I’m up to, really means the world to me. And it makes it all worth it. Truly, if it weren’t for you being here every day, commenting, sharing, and encouraging, this blog would not exist. I would have given up a long time ago! So thank you from the bottom of my heart!! xoxo
PS: the holiday edition of Flea Market Decor is on stands now. You can find it anywhere magazines are sold!

Congratulations. How proud you must be to see the fruits of your labor and love reach this achievement.

Sarah, I have recently discovered you and just am blessed every time I read your thoughts. I don’t usually pick up the Flea Market magazine but I will be this month for sure! And will be “gifting a few” to clients and friends because of your presence in it. But as I read your blog today, this verse came to mind and I felt nudged to share it with you – “Call to me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and unimaginable things.” Jeremiah 33:3. The Message says, “…marvelous and wondrous things.” Sarah, you simply keep calling on Him, and He made you this promise — to answer. And when He does, He is promised to allow (in that answer) for you to experience such mind blowing things from Him, that you have yet to experience! Keep pushing back those ministry sleeves in your obedience to blog because THAT is what it truly is! Your new follower and fan, lisa
Sarah> lisa rippy
Oh my goodness Lisa, you have touched my heart with your comment. Thank you so much for sharing that verse, I absolutely LOVE it. What a powerful message! I’m so grateful you took the time to share that. I am writing that verse down!!

We love your ideas for re-purposing things we already have and links to those new things that we can’t live without. Over the Thanksgiving holiday I painted 4 pieces of furniture I wasn’t that crazy about anymore….now I love them and they have just the look I wanted! Keep up the good work!
Oh that’s so awesome Teresa!! I love painting furniture, it’s like a whole new piece of furniture for very little money. So glad you like how yours turned out and just in time for the holidays too!
Congratulations!!!!! I’m not familiar with the mag but I’ll be checking it out now!!!! You were chosen because you put “Yourself” in everything you do. You share all your knowledge about decorating/life with all of us and we appreciate that so much.
Thank you so much Jean, I truly appreciate that!! xo
Praise God what a beautiful Blessing!

Congratulations Sarah, it’s well deserved! Just being a mom if 3 can fill your time, so being a mom and a successful blogger shows good time management skills and ambitiousness, and that’s something to be proud of and yes, God has richly blessed your success…He loves delighting His children! Sometimes He often has bigger plans for us then we have for ourselves!!! His ways are always best! Excited to watch what else He’s up to in your life!!! ❤️
It’s a lot to balance some days, but God always gives me the strength to do what needs to be done. Thank you for all the encouragement and kindness Faith, you always put a smile on my face!! xo

Congratulations on being featured in the Flea Market magazine! It’s obvious that you work very hard at making your home comfortable and inviting (and so stinking cute).
