    Kitchen Island Inspiration: Euro-Inspired Farmhouse Work Tables and Pastry Tables

    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. Read more

    Mid-Summer Junkin’ Finds Round-Up

    thrifted treasures junkin' finds vintage thrift shop scores vintage decor

    Hey there junkers and thrifters! Today am sharing my mid-summer junkin’ finds round up! Despite a very strange time in our world with many shops being closed, few yard sales, and various other social distancing practices, I somehow still managed to safely score some finds amid the crisis. Some of these items were purchased when my favorite consignment shop reopened with social distancing measures in place back in late June. Others were from neighborhood yard sales, and a few were trades I made with fellow vintage junk-loving friends. Read more

    Summer Decorating with Beautiful Baskets

    Summer and baskets just go hand in hand! From picnic baskets, to bicycle baskets, to market baskets or simple baskets full of fresh picked produce, they are just so pretty and useful for the season. If you love baskets as much as I do (and crates too) then you have come to the right place! I have been collecting baskets and crates for years and I love using them in my home for decor and utilitarian purposes. Today I am sharing some ways I have used beautiful baskets in summer decorating and a few thrifted basket makeovers for inspiration. Read more

    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!
