Wildflower Bouquets

Back roads and summer time just go together for me. Given a choice of a back road or the main highway and I will always say the back roads. I feel at peace in the country with nothing but fields, flowers, animals and the occasional tractor or horse and buggy in our area. Driving back roads means slowing down and enjoying life.

We have our first teen driver in the house and yesterday we jumped in the truck to run a few errands. After a trip to the thrift store, the library and then the coffee shop we headed home on the back roads.

The wildflowers are just incredible this year with the large amounts of rain that we have gotten. So we stopped several times in various places to gather a few flowers to add a little beauty to the home in a natural way.

When I clip wildflowers I always clip them longer than I will want. When I get home I clip them to the desired length and then put them in water right away. They will normally last for several days. I love putting bouquets in mason jars. It just adds that farmhouse charm to the home.

Farmhouse Dining Room Wildflower Bouquet

We did some furniture swapping around here and now I have another project to work on. I just moved this cabinet into the dining room and will be working to make it over. A little paint and some bead board where hopefully my vision comes to life.

Stay tuned....

Simple Spring Farmhouse Bedroom

The birds are chirping. The flowers are beginning to grow. The sun is shining. The windows are open.
We are gladly welcoming Spring weather to our home.
When the weather starts to warm up, I start getting anxious to add Spring touches to our home.

I love using natural elements in our decor and so these blooming Spring branches were the perfect touch in an old sap bucket.


Adding green to our space inside reflected what mother nature was busy doing outside.

White Linen Bedding | SPRING | Light and Fresh

Linen is my choice of fabric for our bed all year long. In the warmer months I remove the duvet insert and we just use the duvet cover. I love to use light and white bedding pieces in the spring and summer to add an airy, bright feel to our room.


Our white linen pillow covers are from Oscar and French.
The gray linen duvet cover is from The Foxes Den.

Our bedroom is kept simple with neutral colors that I find calming and peaceful. To much clutter makes me feel like I need to dust and clean a lot so I enjoy the simplicity of this space. I keep the night stands simple with a few vintage items that I love.

I recently found this vintage lamp at The Vintage Peddler in Springfield Missouri. I didn't like the original color and so a little bit of spray paint sure helped to transform the lamp into a piece that I really love.
I like these smaller lamps. Not only the vintage aspect but it doesn't take up much space.


I love keeping live plants in the home. They help purify the air and the pop of green makes me happy. This ivy was placed inside of an old small drawer and then stacked on top of some old books.


A straw hat hanging on an old small camp chair reminds of warm summer days and needing to grab a hat before heading out to work in the garden.
