Friday Favorites!

It’s Friday! So, you know what that means?? 🤔 Duh, it’s time for another round of Friday Favorites. 🤗

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

My favorite mixing bowl 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. 😛 😉 JK!!

It’s a great size for all your favorite recipes. I use this bowl 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 😬) 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. 😱 😳 😭

Ha, this mistake meant this girl got some bath bombs. 🙋🏼 😂 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 –  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.😍

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. 😉 I have my eyes on several different pillows from this sweet shop!

Here’s the link to check it out! 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! ☺️ 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?!?!😍 I bought several at the beginning of Spring and they’ve added a great splash of color to my open shelving in the kitchen. 🤗

The size of these bowls are perfect for a little late night serving of ice cream or cobbler. 🍨

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? 😉 (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) 😍 Liz Marie has a large stack of these in one of her primitive cabinets and it looks GREAT!!👌🏻 👍🏻

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. 😍 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.😍 Also, it has been extremely durable for us!! 👍🏻 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

We can’t talk about the ottoman without talking about my favorite runner. Favorite. Runner. Ever. 😍 😍 😍

First off, layering is an important key to styling a home.☝🏻 This macrame runner adds layer and texture to any space. Also, the color is perfect.😍 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! 😉

Friday Favorites!

It’s Friday!! One of the best days of the week. Here’s a few products I’ve recently used that I love. If you’re like me you love recommendations!! Have a great weekend, peeps!
Mod About You by OPI

Mod About You is my go to color! It’s the perfect pink. 😍 This creamy pink color looks good no matter the skin color. I use the gel on my fingers and regular on my toes. 🤔 I despise picking nail color but I know I can never go wrong with this selection. It’s the best!!!👍🏻

The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney

You think your family has drama? 😳 You have nothing on the Plumb family! 😉 The Nest is a wonderful spring read!
Wine Bottle Filled Candle - Merlot by World Market MerlotThese are the best candles!! 😍 You can find them at World Market. Each one I’ve tried as a rich scent and fragrance fills the room!! The fragrance is not overwhelming but really good!!

Friday Favorites!

 

It’s Friday again!! Our plans for this weekend consist of picking, coffee and a DIY project.. this is pretty much my ideal weekend. 😁 😉 

It’s time for Friday Favorites! I so enjoy sharing products I’ve recently enjoyed. So, let’s talk about a pillow, book and wall art! Yes, of course a book made the list.. I ALWAYS have a good book to recommend. 🤓
Isn’t this pillow adorable?!?! I have one on my couch and love it! I was pleasantly surprised by the size and quality. It’s perfect for any home. Also, this makes an awesome wedding gift for newlyweds.  Oh, and it’s only $23.50.. What a great Friday splurge for some happy mail next week!! 😉 🤗

This. Book. Is. Amazing. I love everything I’ve read by Mary Kubica. It’s another psychology thriller like Girl on the Train. If you’re needing a good Spring read, order The Good Girl  right now off Amazon. 😉 After you read it, be sure to tell me what you think!!

Springbok Paper Mache Animal Bust by World Market

I’ve had many people ask about the paper mache animal head in the center of my tobacco basket. Well, I got it from World Market. I bought this wall art last year and I had no idea the statement it would make. The coolest part – the paper looks like pages out of a phone book. (I’m a sucker for detail 😍)

 

Happy Friday, peeps!! I’ll try to keep you posted on our weekend adventures.

 

 

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day is in a few weeks!! It’s time to order a gift, and have it shipped directly to Momma!! I’m also going to include my sister in the gift giving this year because she’s expecting her first child mid October.😁🤗 (Btw- Its a GIRL!!🎀) On Sunday May 14th, be sure to celebrate a special mom, grandmother or expecting mother in your life!

Here’s some gifts I found online to have shipped to that special mom!!

This mug is hilarious!! It’s definitely on my “to order list” for mom. 😂 For only $10.49 maybe add a Starbucks gift card and you’re set! Oh, and you’ll get to see mom laugh!!
Yes, it’s a coloring book. I’ve heard many people say coloring relieves stress. Give mom this coloring book and she’ll be sure to think of you while she destressing! Also, this would be an adorable gift to a mommy from a child. 😉

White Frosted Glass Pedestal Stand - 12.5In by World Market 12.5In

Growing up, my mom always loved milk glass. This white cake plate is like a classy modern day milk glass. In fact, I have one of my own displayed on my open shelves . I know my mom would love it and use it for every occasion. Also, white dishes are very stylish right now!!

My grandmother would also love this cake plate. Yum, I imagine her chocolate cake displayed on it right before I dig in and stuff my face!! 😍

Ps- This product is from World Market, and they are offering free shipping right now as a Mother’s Day special. Have it delivered right to mom’s door!!

Like I mentioned earlier, my sister is due to be a new mommy in October. She stays insanely busy, so I seriously doubt she’ll journal but I know if she had this little book she would totally write one line a day.

A few months ago I saw this little book in a bookstore, and I was totally blown away. The goal is to write one line a day for the first five years of your little’s life. This is a beautiful way to preserve special memories. No doubt, I’ll be getting this for my big sister’s first Mother’s Day and I know she’ll love it.

I saved my favorite for last. If you’re like me, mom is in another state and you won’t be seeing her for Mother’s Day.  Something about this little mug makes me feel like Texas isn’t so far away. If you’re struggling being away from your mom, maybe you should order one for yourself too!! This mug would mean so much to my mom.

Mother’s Day can be hard/complicated for some people. Find a way to celebrate your mom, grandmother, daughter or any mom figure in your life. Life is too short to not celebrate each other. Okay, now I’m in tears!!

My Find of the Week / Helpful Hint!!


I’ve gotten soooo many questions about my vintage metal laundry basket. If you watch my Instagram stories, you know I found another one today at an antique store. 😍 Of course I fell in love and had to buy it. I’ve only seen two for sale in my life and I bought both of them. 😳 Here’s the one I bought today along with a few other treasures. 

There is so much you can do with these babies..

1- Blankets and pillows. (This is how I use mine)

2- An actual laundry basket. (Who said laundry baskets had to be plastic and boring?)

3- Plant stand.

4- Porch “catch all” holder. (Yeah, that place where the shoes and junk go)

I always feel so bad when I get messages/questions about mine because I can’t recommend where you can buy one. Well, my amazing husband has come to the rescue! 😏 He found a Metal Basket very similar to mine on Amazon. Click the highlighted link to check it out! 

Each day I pass my metal basket, I’m thankful I bought it. In fact, I could buy three more. Can you tell I’m in love??

Hope this post helps!! 😘

Friday Favorites!

Yep, it’s Friday, so that means time for Friday favorites!! 🤗 Here’s three items I’ve really been digging recently. Remember for more details on these favorites you can always click the underlined name and it’ll take you straight to Amazon.. 😜Which just so happens to be my favorite store.

Ps- I’m a true book lover nerd, so you can almost guarantee there’ll be a good book on here almost weekly. 🤓 No worries, I’ll only highlight my favorites. 😊😉

Mrs. Myer’s Cleaning Products

Cleaning is certainly NOT my favorite job, but Mrs. Myer’s makes it much better. No lie, her all purpose cleaner makes counters sparkle like none other. I feel like this product is well concentrated so a little goes a long way.

Not to mention the scent! Oh, the scent is lovely. ☺️ Basil is my very favorite. It’s a farmhouse must!The Couple Next Door

Totally as good as it sounds! Like Girl on the Train, you won’t be able to put this psychological thriller down.😮🤓 In fact, I began and finished it all on one road trip. Okay, I’m going to stop talking about it now so I won’t end up ruining the story.

Momma Bear Shirt

This would make an awesome Mother’s Day gift for your mom or any special moms in your life!☺️ It’s super adorable and looks extra comfy. This is definitely on the list to get my own mom. Heck, I might even get my expecting sister one too.. (Btw- I’m going to be an Auntie in October!!!!!!)🤰

For sure, this would also be a great gift for any expecting Mommies out there!!

Good Friday Favorites!

Happy Easter weekend, dear friends! (Yep, I consider you friend by this point 😉) It’s Good Friday, so let’s talk about Friday Favorites! One can never go wrong with a moisturizer, book and canister set.

Hempz Body Moisturizer

This non decor related item is on point! I’ve been lathering it on my skin for three years now because it’s the perfect moisturizer. Each scent is amazing. 😍  Triple Moisture  and Age Defying are my favs!

 

Small Great Things
Months ago I read Small Great Things Small GreatThings by Jodi Picoult. Let me just say, my ol heart is still in knots from this deep story. Warning – it’s not a little hearted storyline but it’s a wonderful read. 😭 Friend, you won’t be able to put it down.

Enamel Canister Set

Woah, can you say $18.49 on Amazon. 🙄😂 I spend more than that on a toilet paper run to target.

Seriously, I ordered this Enamel Canister Set a few months ago as some fun happy mail for myself and I’m still in love. This set is perfect for a coffee station or really anywhere in the kitchen.
