Silver summer buffet

Well hello everyone! We are experiencing the heat of August here in the NC mountains, and I cannot wait for that to end. Inside,  though, it's cool, and I'm always changing things around here and there. 

I always enjoy different vignettes on my buffet, because I have lots of things to rotate, and I get tired of the same thing, so I decided to take away the brass and add some old silver.

Pink summer bedroom

It was about seven years ago when I started to use that peachy/pink shade after I found paint drips that color on the backs of some boards from the old house. It was a favorite of my grandmother's.

There were very few using that shade then, but a couple years ago the "blush" trend came out in full force. 

You're welcome😉

In any case, I wanted to add some of that to my reds and grays, so the addition of a pink chenille bedspread my mother let me borrow was the perfect opportunity to do so.

Reclaiming vintage trim

If you have followed here very long at all, you'll know exactly how passionate I am about saving every piece of my heritage I can. My mantra has been, "reclaiming the past -- one board at a time," and that has been literally what I've been doing. I love the challenge of restoring something, and the satisfaction of saving something that would have been thrown away.

I wanted to use the fluted door trim in the little house for a while and finally got around to doing it.

Adding a light over the table...

If you were here last week, or follow on Instagram and facebook, you will know that we took out the island in the kitchen, moved the dining table there, added two walls to make a home office/studio and reoriented the living room.😀 Yes, all that. 
So I needed to move the current fixture, which was not centered anyway, to where the center of the room is, and centered on the table. Not, I need to add, centered on the kitchen sink/window.

The new living room -- and why

Yes. My new living room. If you don't follow on instagram, you'll have no idea what I'm referring to, so I'll try to explain it.

Magnolia in the winter living room

Happy New Year -- ok I'm a bit late but it's still a new year and a great time for a fresh start. First, I LOVE winter, the cold, dark nights, and the coziness our home has this time of year. You won't see me rushing ahead to spring.

Farmhouse Christmas Porch

Hello everyone! I meant to have this post up sooner, but the winter storm last weekend knocked out power from Saturday night until Tuesday night and took out many trees and shrubs around the house -- not to mention the destruction all over the community here. In fact, there were tree limbs coming through the rails on the porch so we had to cut them back until we can take care of the debris, but I went ahead and shot a few photos to share.

**The** most unique candle idea I've seen...

Y'all know how much I love the right candle, and I'm super picky about them, so you will understand how excited I was to find one of my childhood friends selling some very unique candles at Illuminations Vintage.
When I saw that she pours them into vintage containers, I *had* to try one, and picked up my first one over the weekend.
