Painted Coop

I had so much fun painting this coop this weekend! I imagine in the winter it will be a nice pop of color. I found this quote in How to Be a Wildflower by Katie Daisy. If you haven't discovered that book, I highly recommend it :) Since our farm's name is Starry Fields, all of the flowers are ...

Farmhouse Fireplace Renovation

DIY- Sea and Sand Throw Pillow

Happy Monday!  While browsing around on my new favorite place, Pintrest, I found this painting and fell in love. Isn't that lovely?  I want to be there, greeting the day.  Well, I don't really paint, but you know I love fabric and a challenge.  So I decided to create a pillow for my couch - a ...

Decorating for the Seasons

So....guess what decorations are still up in my house.  St. Patricks?  nope.  Valentine's Day?  nope. Snowy wintry snowman?  nope. Christmas. That's right.  Christmas.  I would like to tell you that I forgot to take it down because it was adorning some out-of-the-way corner - but it's not true.  ...
