A Favorite Blog

Good day, everyone!  Today, I want to share with you an inspiring lady and show you her blog.  Tracey's ideas and creativity are amazing and her home is absolutely beautiful!  I can't wait to show you some of her pictures from her blog, French Larkspur!

She also loves to decorate with vintage grain sacks.  I think grain sacks are my favorite thing.  I have them everywhere and you can never have enough!

I LOVE her kitchen!  We have yet to update our little ol' country kitchen, but when we do someday, I hope it turns out looking like this!  Very cute, Tracey!

I have a bed very similar to this...I can't wait to set it up in one of our upstairs bedrooms!

So you see why I love and follow her blog?  These pictures that I shared with you don't even scratch the surface!  Make sure you go over and check out the rest!  Her home is also featured in one of my new favorite books, Romantic Prairie Style by Fifi O'Neill. 

My dream is to have my home featured in a book like this or decorating magazine, maybe someday!  Go pick up the book, trust me you will love it!  And oh how amazing are all the pictures... I could look at them all day!

Beautiful Hanging Baskets and a Giveaway

Good Afternoon, everyone!  I hope you are all having a wonderful day!  As you all know, I love flowers and one of my favorite things to do is to go flower shopping!  Every year, Mom and I go to our local greenhouse to pick out fabulous annual baskets and flats.  I always let her pick out a special basket for Mother's Day.  When I leave, my little car is stuffed to the brim with flowers...

I hope you don't mind that I also sneak in more pictures of some spring bloomers in my garden!
