DIY Coffee Station

How this antique toolbox became a kitchen focal point


A couple weeks ago I discovered a beautiful new artisan co-op shop in my home town (read the full post about The Olde Mercantile here). I left with beautiful finds - some old and some new - but wasn't quite sure of what I would do with any of them, I just knew I had to have the items. Little did I know that an old wooden toolbox, some galvanized metal coasters and a painted mason jar would work perfectly in tandem to inspire a little DIY coffee station in my kitchen.

Charming Country Décor

Antique Finds from a new shop in my hometown

It's exciting enough when I discover a new store where I can scourer antique treasures and vintage finds, but to discover it in my own hometown of Cohoes, NY is REALLY exciting! The Olde Mercantile is a charming co-op country store with lots of amazing home decor. From candles and signage, to cloth napkins and antique tool boxes, you will find an amazing assortment.

Summertime Family Room Facelift

New pillows & rug brighten up this heavy traffic space


One of the quickest, easiest and cheapest ways to freshen up any space in your home is to accessorize seasonally. Keep the big pieces in place (sofas, coffee tables, etc.) and then everything else is fair game. To spruce up my family room for the summer months I started with some gorgeous nautical inspired pillows from Homegoods and a new rug from Rugs USA and super plush rug pad from Rug Pad USA.

$10 Drop Cloth Curtains

Cheap, Easy & Durable Outdoor Solution 

One of the greatest parts of our home is our amazing front porch. I always dreamt of having a large opening porch space to relax and unwind and I'm so blessed to have created that space in our current home. Yet, each day between around 4 o'clock in the afternoon the sun becomes so intense that it makes it difficult to sit out there. I didn't have the budget for large custom roll shades and it didn't want the maintenance or installation costs.

Country Living Fair (2014) -- A step back in time

Amazing finds at the Country Living Fair

Sharing a recap from the wonderful time I had visiting the Country Living Fair last June.  It was my first formal invite to attend an event in the capacity of a Hometalk Blogger and I was thrilled for the chance to share my finds with my favorite magazine  ~ Country Living.
I attended the Country Living Fair in Rhinebeck, NY with my amazing mother Sandie and my sweet sweet 8-year old daughter Evarista "Evey". They are my partners in crime and my best girls...it was a true girls day...
