Aww, this Everything Is Better in a Mason Jar Tea Towelย is too cute! ๐Ÿ˜ It screams farmhouse style!

My Colorful Ottoman

Yes, if you’ve seen a picture of my nearly all neutral living room, you know it has a loud color in the very center. I love white but I also love the unexpected. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I get many messages about myย ottomanย and I’m going to answer the number one question – Where did it come from? It’s actually from World Market!!

I bought it from World Market about two years ago and although it’s a statement color in my white/wood tone home, I haven’t grown tired of this piece! โ˜บ๏ธ The color and velvety texture gives a nice pop.

The style of this piece is timeless. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป I would consider it classy/glamorous style yet it fits well in our french country style farmhouse.

Also, like I said we’ve had it around two years and it looks the same as the day we got it! ๐Ÿ˜ This ottomanย has totally held up!


So, there’s a little about the ottoman many of you have asked about! If you think this beautiful piece can find a spot in your home, it’s your lucky day because World Market is running a sale on this ottomanย online!!

Friday Favorites!

Happy Friday, Friends!! Can you believe the weekend is here? ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป Our weekend will consist of picking junk, eating good food, working on the chicken coop and beginning the layout of my booth expansion! (I’m sure you’ll be seeing post about the chicken coop and booth expansion soon.) ๐Ÿ˜‰

Since it’s Friday, it’s time for me to share a few of my favorite things! ๐Ÿค— Let’s talk about a book, olives and a bread box. Friday Favorite combos are always so random!!

I’m intensely missing the beach right now. ๐ŸŠ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธย Truly, Madly, Guilty by Liane Moriarty ย was my beach read last year. It was GREAT! I literally read the entire book by the water! ๐ŸŒŠ I highly recommend it as an easy Summer vacation read! Also, Liane Moriarty is the author of many other incredible books such asย The Husband’s Secret.

Don’t laugh. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I know it’s random but these Blue Cheese Stuffed Olivesย are no doubt my favorite food right now. They make the perfect appetizer and you can order them on Amazon! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

I love myย Black and White Enamel Bread Box.๐Ÿ˜ It’s sorta an investmentย but I’ve seen it look awesome in several different kitchens. It’s probably my favorite kitchen piece. Yes, an entire loaf of bread fits in this box. Also, thisย Canister Setย matches and it’s very reasonably priced. I absolutely love it all!!

Alright, Friends! There you have it! That’s my Friday Favorites for this week. Hope your weekend is amazing! ๐Ÿ˜˜

Father’s Day Gift Ideas!

Hi Friends! We’re one week from Father’s Day. It’s nearly time to tell dad how special he is. Here’s some gift ideas for you!! โ˜บ๏ธ

Yes, it’s the Father’s Day Distance Mug!!ย I posted one very similar for Mother’s Day Gift Ideas ย and many of you seemed to love it!! My daddy raised three girls, so he has a very soft side. Trust me – if he received this mug in the mail, it would totally make his day. (Even though he’s not a fan of coffee, he’d save it for his hot chocolate ๐Ÿ˜‚)

Confession – the distance mug is more of my big sister’s style.. However, this adorable mugย is totally me. I could have this anonymously delivered to daddy and he would immediately know who it came from! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Also, this item is eligible for Amazon Prime so you can have it shipped directly to his home – not that I’m trying to be cheap when it comes to dad.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’d like to call this Dad’s Saturday shirt.ย My dad wears soft tees every Saturday so he’d love this shirt!! It’s adorable and also eligible for Amazon Prime!!

Again, maybe it’s because dad spent nearly his entire adult life in a house full of girls, my dad loves candles. ๐Ÿ˜ Here’s a masculineย Set of Soy Candles each one sounds amazing!!
Himalayan Salt-Plate: Pink by World Market

Shhh.. Here’s what my puppies, Rhett and Ellen, are giving their daddy. The puppies just want to thank their daddy for all the kisses, food and water he gives them throughout the year. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Sometimes Aaron gets in the mood to cook and he’s all about trying news things in the kitchen. I really think he’ll enjoy a Salt Plateย from World Market.

Just remember next Sunday is about celebrating all the wonderful dads in our lives. Be sure to let your dad, grandfather and maybe husband know how much they mean to you!

Thanks for reading my blog! ๐Ÿ˜˜

Friday Favorites

Yay, for another weekend!! ๐Ÿค— I’ve got some really exciting products I’ve been loving recently! A total random combo but let’s talk a little about boxwood, nail color and meat choppers.. Like I said completely random combo! ๐Ÿ˜‚

In the decor world of 2017, anything green is well loved! ๐Ÿ˜ In fact, you’ll notice a lot of white, wood and (fake or real) plants. It’s very trendy yet timeless. Growing up my mother always said, “Every room needs something green” and she was right. ๐ŸŒฟ Green represents life. ย ย 

So, I want to bring this adorable boxwood initial to your attention! I ordered one off Amazon and absolutely love it. (Helpful Hint – Amazon has great prices on boxwood.) ย I’ve found several places for this “B” boxwood throughout my home. Honestly, it looks good anywhere.

I love using boxwood in my home for Summer!! Btw – ย You can order other letters. ๐Ÿ˜‰ B is for Bowman.

So, before writing this blog I literally just got back from the nail salon and I must say I’ve found a new BFF. ๐Ÿ’…๐Ÿผ

Me and this OPI Nail Colorย are going to be BEST Friends all Summer long!! ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ It’s calledย Funny Bunny by OPIย and I’m obsessed.

Okay, now we’re getting real random, my friend! I just can’t go one more day without telling you how amazing this Kitchen Utensilย is.. I feel I owe it to you. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐ŸปIt’s a utensil used for ground meat.

This. Will. Make. Your. Life. Better.

Again, thanks for reading my blog! Have a wonderful weekend!! ๐Ÿ˜˜

My Favorite Rugs

Rugs. Seem simple, huh? Well, they actually make the room! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป When I look for a rug I have one goal in mindโ˜๐Ÿป- texture! Yes, rugs can cozy up a room but they can also add much needed texture.

I get Direct Messages all the time about my rugs. Here’s my favorite rugs and where I found them!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Friday Favorites

Happy Memorial Day weekend! I’ve got my American flag hanging off our porch and several red, white and blue around the porch swing. I hope your weekend is safe and fun! Here’s a few of my favorites on this wonderful Friday evening!

Speaking of Memorial Day, I love putting out a fresh American Flagย this time of year. It’s great way for showing your support for our country and troops. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Also, it adds a bit of curb appeal too! ๐Ÿ˜Š Here’s an American Flagย on Amazon that comes with the pole and attachment pieces.


Theseย Reef Slip on Shoesย are AHHHHMAZING!! ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ I bought these in February and have worn them several times a week since. Nearly each time I wear these Reefsย I get compliments.๐Ÿ˜Š Believe it or not, they’re awesome gym shoes because they’re lightweight and comfortable. ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ Perfect for killing that cardio!
Black Villa Stripe Kitchen Towel - Cotton by World MarketI’m 24 years old.. It’s sad to say nothing gets me as excited as a fresh new kitchen towel!! ย I love a nice crisp towel in the kitchen. ๐Ÿ™„ We eat at home all the time and our kitchen towels are well used so I replace them often. When it’s time to replace, I head to World Market and grab something similar this
Black Villa Stripe Cotton Kitchen Towel
! ๐Ÿ˜ Theses pretties are only $3.99. That’s cheap enough to buy them in bundles!!

Alrighty, these are a few of my favorite items right now! I hope explore them and if it’s right for you, TREAT YOURSELF!! You deserve it, my dear! ๐Ÿค— ๐Ÿ˜˜

Friday Favorites!

It’s Friday! So, you know what that means?? ๐Ÿค” Duh, it’s time for another round of Friday Favorites. ๐Ÿค—

Let’s talk a little about an adorable mixing bowl, relaxing bath bombs and a beautiful farmhouse cottage style pillow!

My favorite mixing bowlย is from World Market and it’s only $12.99. This bowl always makes me laugh and makes me feel less guilty about licking the bowl. ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜‰ JK!!

It’s a great size for all your favorite recipes. I use this bowlย all the time. In fact, I used it last night to make fresh black berry cobbler.

Random thought – have I mentioned we have thousands of black berries in our yard?!?! Yum! Gotta love that country life!

Okay, funny story! Aaron order this set of bath bombs to be sent to his mom for Mother’s Day. Well, two days later. There’s an Amazon box on our counter top. He thought it was my box and I thought it was his.

A few days later, I asked him to open his Amazon box and get it off the counter top. (Please ๐Ÿ˜ฌ) He replied, “Babe, that’s not my box.”

So, I opened it.

It was his Mother’s Day gift to his mom and he accidentally had it shipped to our house instead of Virginia. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ ๐Ÿ˜ณ ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Ha, this mistake meant this girl got some bath bombs. ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผ ๐Ÿ˜‚ Within a week I have already used some and they are amazing!! I’m a fan of relaxing in a tub after a long day and these bombs are perfect for just that!

Best part – ย they are Amazon prime so it’s ultra fast shipping if you’re a prime member.


This next highlight is probably my favorite “HAPPY MAIL” I’ve ordered all year! It’s from an adorable online shop called Jolie Marche. This shop creates the most beautiful pillows.๐Ÿ˜

I ordered one called Farmhouse Sheep out of her Farmhouse Collection. It’s stunningly beautiful and the quality is great!

Although it was my first time to order from Jolie Marche, it will certainly not be my last. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I have my eyes on several different pillows from this sweet shop!

Here’s the link to check it out!ย Farmhouse Sheep

Alright, so you’ve heard from me about my Friday Favorites! This weekend we’ll be picking treasures and hanging around the farmhouse! โ˜บ๏ธ Happy Weekend from us!!

PS – Aaron reorder bath bombs for his mother and she received them last Sunday.

Jade Green Glass Footed Bowls Set of 6 by World Market
Jade Green Glass Footed Bowls Set of 6 by World Market

Aren’t these jadeite bowls precious?!?!๐Ÿ˜ I bought several at the beginning of Spring and they’ve added a great splash of color to my open shelving in the kitchen. ๐Ÿค—

The size of these bowls are perfect for a little late night serving of ice cream or cobbler. ๐Ÿจ

One thing about jade color dishes – they’re versatile for many season! Adorable for Spring and Summer but would also be darling mixed with a little red at during Christmas. Can you imagine this color and size bowl styled with a mini pumpkin for October? ๐Ÿ˜‰ (Yep, just figured out what I’ll do with these in Autumn)

One very important note – (Well, at least important in the home decor/blogging world) ๐Ÿ˜ Liz Marie has a large stack of these in one of her primitive cabinets and it looks GREAT!!๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
Beryl Green Marcelle Tufted Ottoman: Blue - Fabric by World Market
Beryl Tufted Ottoman: Blue – Fabric by World Market

Since I’ve began sharing my home on Istagram, I’ve got so many Direct Messages about this plush ottoman in my living room.

Yes, It has color. Yes, I love white. ๐Ÿ˜ However, as much as I love white one of my secrets to styling is adding a splash of color in an unexpected way and this ottoman certainly does adds pop!

I love the style and color of my ottoman.๐Ÿ˜ Also, it has been extremely durable for us!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป During my early days of homemaking this piece was a major purchase for me and I’m as pleased now as the day I bought it!

Natural Macrame Table Runner: White - Cotton by World Market

Natural Macrame Table Runner: White – Cotton by World Market

We can’t talk about the ottoman without talking about my favorite runner. Favorite. Runner. Ever. ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜

First off, layering is an important key to styling a home.โ˜๐Ÿป This macrame runner adds layer and texture to any space. Also, the color is perfect.๐Ÿ˜ Keep in mind, you can use this runner on a dresser, coffee table, dining room/kitchen table, buffet among many other spaces. Again, this is a versatile piece!

You’ll be thanking me after you order this beautiful runner! ๐Ÿ˜‰
