I have never hidden that we live in a double wide mobile home. It’s part of our life story that I am more than happy to share about. I believe that everyone should make the most of whatever home that they live in, and I am on a mission to make the interior of our home look like the farmhouse simple style that I love.Read More
This Independence Day looks so different for our family. In the 19 years that I have been with my husband, we have always done the same thing. Pack up, head to the creek and spend the afternoon with all of our extended family. The children swim in the creek, and the adults lounge in their chairs, chatting, making multiple trips to the table to snack on foods. The sound of fireworks, kids splashing, and the endless chatter has made for some wonderful memories.Read More
Old farmhouse style furniture has a way of luring me in. I love the simple straight lines of old shaker style pieces and I recently was browsing the a local for sale site when this beautiful farmhouse cupboard showed up.Read More
The voice of autumn is ringing loudly through the hills and hollers of home. The world is still filled with greens but there is the occasional yellow and rusty gold of the falling leaves. It is the undeniable beauty of September.Read More
It will be celebrated with pomp and parade.....
bonfires and illuminations from one end of the continent to the other.
Welcome! My favorite part of summer is celebrating Independence Day! I love the festivities of eating delicious food, swimming at the creek, being with family and ending the night with lots of color in the sky!
This year I have teamed up with some amazingly talented bloggers who are opening up there homes to share table setting ideas for this 4th of July. I have put together a simple table setting that I would love to share with you.
I wanted to keep a simple traditional theme of Red, White and Blue on the table this year and I also wanted to work with items that I already had around the home.
I started with my centerpiece that I made and shared a tutorial for and then I added a few small crocks with some plants.
I collect white ironstone dishes and they are perfect to use in table settings because they always coordinate with everything. The striped napkins are made from fabric that I had in my stash from Hobby Lobby. Mason jars serve as casual glassware and are our choice of drinking glasses around here.
Wishing you all a safe and happy 4th of July!

There are often a lot of questions about what type of flooring you can lay in a manufactured home. Most times when a manufactured home is purchased it will have carpet and linoleum. We wanted to upgrade our home and after talking with a hardwood flooring company, we chose to go with hardwood floors.
