Hello Sweet Friends and happy Monday. I can’t believe I almost let these little beauties bloom and go without sharing. Aren’t they spectacular this year? All of our early blooming azaleas are out doing themselves. I think it could be because we were spared those bud-damaging hard freezes and had a boatload of rain. Thanks Mother Nature! ❤️❤️ P.S. This variety is called Pink Ruffles. Anybody want to share their spring bloomers? #azelea#azelealove
Guess what??❤️ We’re getting a pup! See the plant on the table? Well, This bromeliad came to live with us last fall when I needed a live dining room table centerpiece that wouldn’t die —-like fresh flowers. 😳😳Fast forward to today and the fact that this little lady is now growing a huge “pup” that needs replanting. 😱😱I know, right? .
Here’s the thing about bromeliads. If you have low light and/or a black thumb, they are great plants! Not kidding.They require so little attention, they’re practically artificial. 😂😂😂
So one day this week, I’m going to deliver the pup and set it in its own pot as a child. ..
Yes. I’ll have to use a sterile knife and everything. And yes. I’ll try to catch all the pup maternity adventures on IG stories. ❤️❤️❤️
Happy Tuesday! And so it begins... all the excitement that is 2018🎉🎉🎉 I rang in the new year with out of control sinuses and coughing. But just know there are no worries .. this too shall pass.

Oh my stars! You won’t believe! On a trip to the thrift store for vintage ornaments, I ran across these pieces of China. And I almost left them behind beeeeee cauze..... I already have piles of China🙈🙈... but that’s another story 💁🏻♀️ ... Ok .. so ladies.. I did take them home ... bee cauzzzze.... I could not leave them there. 😩😩 Orphaned. 😭
Anyhoo, here’s why I’m sharing this sorted tale with you now. The stack costs $7 and when I looked them up on a vintage China website, they are valued around $600. 😱😱🎉🎉🎉🎉 Yes! Just the platter and 8 salad plates.
So when thrifting, always flip and look for the markings. And if you need help finding some websites to verify the product ... lemme know.
And no... I didn’t find any vintage ornaments.😭😭😭😭😭😭
Happy Tuesday Friends! And a special hello to new followers!

Hello Friends! I’m having a #theowbackmonday moment. This was the first Christmas project I ever made and posted to the blog. I know!! Right?? 😳😳 I built this little tree to fit the wagon and used it as a centerpiece on the coffee table in the sunroom. ❤️❤️ Still one of my all-time favs! 🌲🌲🌲 Anybody else have a fav?? I’d love to visit your blog and see some projects I missed! ❤️❤️🌲🌲🌲
Kinda forgot to share the great room. 🙈🙈I really kept the Christmas decor super simple in here. The focal pieces are two 6- foot trees, one on either side of the big wall unit. No ornaments. Just lights. And it works just fine. On the mantel are stockings topped with over-sized sprays. It was quick and easy. I didn’t have to dismantle the mantel. Wondering why I didn’t think of this sooner? #livingsimple#simpleChristmas#tisagifttobesimple
Oh my goodness! I was going to share some peanut butter cookies for the #farmhousegoodies tag by sweet Lynne @myfamilythyme ... Then I ran across this totally delish chocolate cake in my photo album. What makes it so farmhousey? Well it’s a potato cake! I know! Right? There’s leftover mashed potatoes in this chocolate delight cuz .. well.... you know in the country, we don’t waste anything. 💁🏻♀️💁🏻♀️ The topping is a homemade Ultra-fudgey ganache. And I tell you, it’s the kind of topping that will make you stick your face right in the bowl so you can lick up every single drop. ❤️❤️ If you’d like to try the recipe, just hop over to the blog and check out “cake”. 🎉 Tagging some friends to share their farmhouse goodies, too.
Good Tuesday morning! It’s Day 2 of the Christmas Home Tour hosted by @theeverydayhome and my entire dining room is finally on the blog. ❤️❤️ Taggjng some fab ladies so you can check out their homes, too! 🌲🌲❤️❤️❤️
So I added a hot spot to my Christmas tree to feature the star on top. 💕💕 Playing along with @sagelantern and the ladies with the hashtag #faithondisplay .. I wanted to remind us that God sent a star to mark the location of Jesus after His birth. The wise men saw the star and came looking for Him saying “we have seen the star in the East’ Matt 2:2.
Leaving you sweet friends with this message.
Wise men still seek Him.
Let us be wise in 2018 🙏🏻🙏🏻💕💕
