    How To Design A Timeless Bathroom

    Hello again dear readers! I am still working on my home project wish list for 2018, and updating/renovating our main bathroom is on the agenda! For as much as I love vintage style and adding lots of little treasures and collectibles all around my home, I really prefer a modern and clean look when it comes to the bathroom. A “modern” bathroom is actually very chic and timeless. Many modern styles are more reflective of the original bathrooms in older homes. Most of us with older properties usually want to design our bathrooms to remain in keeping with the character of the building.

    How To Create The Perfect Bedroom

    Bedroom design ideas

     

    Hello again! As January comes to a close I am making a home improvement and redecorating wish list for the year ahead. While it is not a priority, I hope to get around to creating a beautiful and comfortable bedroom sometime this year! We are starting our fourth year in our home, and we have done very little to decorate our current bedroom. We actually don’t even have a headboard! One of the main reasons we have not yet tackled our bedroom is simply indecision. 

    As I have been thinking about what I want to achieve when creating our “new” space, I have realized there are some basic elements to consider when designing the perfect bedroom—comfort, style, and restorative sleep. These are the essentials of a bedroom that do not require furniture changes or even repainting walls, but are necessary for creating a cozy and relaxing retreat. Today I will be discussing the basics in more detail. *This post contains affiliate links.

    How To Keep Your Home Looking Fresh And Stylish

    Home improvement ideas refresh your home

    Every home becomes a little outdated after a while. No matter how cozy and comfy our humble abodes may be, it’s likely that we’ve all probably let the appearance of our homes slip a little over the years. Giving a home a little TLC each year can go a long way as far as keeping it looking fresh and stylish, and spring is the perfect time to do just that. Of course, freshening things up a bit doesn’t have to be a huge time-consuming and budget breaking ordeal! Here are some easy ways to spruce up your home this spring. *This post contains affiliate links.

    How To Add Vintage Style To Your Home

    Hello everyone! As promised I am working on bringing my readers more posts on vintage decorating style. Vintage decor is more popular than ever, and it can be incorporated into your home in so many easy ways. Even if your house is modern, vintage elements can still be worked in to add some cozy charm. Vintage decor and collectibles are great for making your house have a unique feel, and for giving it lots of character. Many vintage items evoke the countryside, and the farmhouse or cottage look, which so many people love. There is just something so homey and welcoming when we are surrounded by the timeworn items of yesteryear. *This post contains affiliate links.

    Let's Go Junkin'!

    Let’s Go Junkin’! Vintage Market Turlock, California

    Hi friends! It’s time for some more great  virtual junkin’ as part of the”Let’s Go Junkin'” series here on my blog! Today’s guest is Becky, antiques vendor at Vintage Market in CA. I connected with Becky years ago when I first started blogging. We shared a love of Scottish Terriers and all things vintage! Last year I was so happy to reconnect with such a kindred spirit on Instagram, and I have enjoyed seeing all of her personal decorating photos as well as all of the amazing vintage eye candy in her booth that she shares on her account Sweet Cottage Dreams. I invited her to share a little more about herself and her spaces at Vintage Market In CA.  It is my pleasure to have Becky here today!

     

    Hello! I am honored to have been invited by Amber to be a guest host for “Let’s Go Junkin'” on her beautiful blog.  Let me introduce myself!  My name is Becky and I am a vintage and antique dealer in a beautiful shop located in Turlock, California.  The shop is called Vintage Market and I have been selling there for nearly 4 years.  I started selling vintage items on eBay in 2001 and then on Etsy a few years later.  Over the years I have sold in other shops, however I am down to one shop now, which is easier to manage than being in multiple stores.
