Quaint Quaker Blue

I’m kind of a consistent and predictable kinda gal. I like to plan out my days, know what’s coming up next, and without my multiple spreadsheets I am certain I would never rest easy. I honestly don’t know how my Farmer hubby does it — most days he doesn’t know what he’ll be doing in… Continue reading Quaint Quaker Blue

Simply Bliss Washstand

I simply adore antique washstands. They are such enjoyable transformations, and oh-so versatile. Small in size, they can fit anywhere from a small apartment bedroom to a large foyer in a full size home. I was delighted to find this lil’ gal and elated that she had her original hardware… albeit so dull and dingy… Continue reading Simply Bliss Washstand

Sweet Heirloom Awakening

Memories. Isn’t it neat how some of them you hold so vividly? Although I only have a single one of my Great Grandma Phyllis… it’s a very strong one, and neatly so this antique dresser that once belonged to her is very much a part of that recollection I hold. It was summertime. I was… Continue reading Sweet Heirloom Awakening

Simple n’ Sweet Tallboy

Open the windows, put away your snow shovel, and switch your hot coffee to iced folks… because spring is definitely here! And with spring comes… lots of dog poop to pick up in the yard?! Well… yes, but also the urge for spring cleaning! Spring cleaning can be sooooo much more enjoyable if you tie… Continue reading Simple n’ Sweet Tallboy

Wondering Wanderess Chest

Hmmm… I wonder what the proper name is for this type of furniture? Is it a Lingerie Chest, a Tallboy Dresser, a Highboy Dresser, a Chifferobe, a Gentleman’s Chest? I am certainly left wondering, and curious to know. Whatever type it is, I think it’s adorable. Of all the charming features, the little cupboard alone… Continue reading Wondering Wanderess Chest

Take Me Back Buffet

Although buffets were traditionally used in the dining room for serving food and displaying dishes, they are a timeless furnishing that can be used for so many additional purposes! While scrolling a local buy n’ sell site, this solid Jacobean buffet stopped me in my tracks! Aside from ‘her’ unfashionable orange tone, this ‘gals’ striking… Continue reading Take Me Back Buffet

A Breath of New Life

Even timeless pieces can lose their luster. Time dulls them, use wears them, age can weaken them. Some mending if needed, and a fresh coat of paint can be all you need to breathe new life into a tired piece. Although standing tall and beautiful when I found ‘her’ — I knew this charming tiger… Continue reading A Breath of New Life

DIY Rustic Farmhouse Wood Flooring

Carpet.  Why did we ever?!  Cozy yes… but oh-so very dirty, and oh-so not a good idea for a farmhouse with fur babies! 😳 In Spring 2018 we decided that we’d like to replace the flooring in all rooms within our home that have carpet… room-by-room, year-by-year.  We were dreaming of hardwoods… realizing very quickly that… Continue reading DIY Rustic Farmhouse Wood Flooring

Corner Shelf Farmhouse Charm

Creaking hardwood floors, distressed furniture finishes, chickenwire accents, mason jar decors, caster wheels, enamel pitchers, Grandma’s apron, potato/onion bins, crystal glass door knobs, breadboxes, hard-working dirty Farmer hands, screen porch doorways, antique nail bins, rusty milk cans, and chippy doors with crackled paint… … are a just a FEW of my favourite farmhouse things!  BUT… Continue reading Corner Shelf Farmhouse Charm

A Dresser for YOU Jennifer

Neighbours. I have the best kind. The kind that will drop everything when you’re in a pinch and need a hand.  The kind that will stop whatever they’re doing to tell you that you have some cattle outside the fence — and will also head on over to help you get them back in.  The… Continue reading A Dresser for YOU Jennifer
