Hello everyone! Lately I have been doing a little “island dreaming” as our kitchen renovation is in progress. We recently removed the 5 foot island with traditional cabinet base and repositioned it in a new spot in the kitchen. While it was nice having such a huge island, it ate up the entire center of the kitchen and made it hard to get in and out of the oven and dishwasher. I knew I wanted a smaller island of some kind, so I started doing some Pinterest searching for inspiration. It wasn’t long before I realized that an old world, European style work table or farmhouse pastry table would be perfect for our kitchen, not only for size and function, but for style as well. Here are some of the gorgeous examples of Euro-inspired farmhouse work tables and pastry tables that I found on Pinterest. Enjoy! *This post contains affiliate links.

I don’t know about you, but I just don’t think summer would be complete without some sunshiny-lemony goodness! Lemons are certainly a quintessential summer fruit! Most everyone loves sipping on old-fashioned lemonade, enjoying a lemon-flavored dessert, or brightening a spot in their home with a simple bowl of lemons.
Today I am excited to be joining my friend Cindy of County Road 407 and several blogging friends for our monthly Pinterest Challenge! As you have probably guessed, the theme is lemons. More specifially, we have been challenged to create our own lemons and flowers arrangement using the beautiful Pinterest inspiration photo below by Mary of Home is Where the Boat Is. We all just loved her “All Abuzz: Lemons and Bees Vase Arrangement and Tablescape.”
Hey there my friends! Today I am posting some kitchen makeover news that I have sort of been dreading. This past week during our kitchen renovation we had to make a very difficult decision to take out the corner “breakfast nook” window seat area. Yes, beloved readers and closest bloggy friends—-the adorable, cozy corner nook as seen below, no longer exists…

Hello and welcome back for another post in my Interior Decor and Design series. Over the years I have discovered that one of the most difficult decisions in interior design is choosing the best perfect window treatments for your home. More specifically, the dilemma is commonly between curtains and blinds (or sometimes wondering if it’s okay to use both). If you are struggling with this issue, there are several factors to consider that can help ou along in the decision making process. Here are some tips on how to choose the best window treatments for your home. *This post contains affiliate links/sponsored.
Welcome back to my Pin Away Wednesday series! In just a few days our family will be at the beach for our annual vacation and I can hardly contain my excitement! I thought today would be a perfect time to share highlights from my Coastal Style and Beach Cottage Decor Pinterest Board. Because I am a beach lover and dreamer of coastal dreams, (one day we plan to retire near the beach) this is one of my favorite boards. If you love beautiful beach decor and vintage coastal treasures too, get ready to pin away!
…For the love of the Sea and all things beachy!
One of my favorite decorating styles is French vintage coastal, or at least that is what I call it. Bascially it’s a combination of coastal treasures and vintage shabby chic, brocante and vintage French found objects. There is something so romantic and magical about this style!
