$2.50 Cute little nest display, I have plans for that!
We harvested our first peach today! Much more to come, and I will fill the freezer and can some. It's been hot and smoky, but we ventured out today! We hit two thrift stores while we were out. First I found two cute books for the grand babies-
69 cents, like new!!!
Each animal face has a flap that says "goodnight" underneath
This one from my fave author, Jan Brett-
I have been looking for one of these for years!!! Just a very small wall rack for my little bathroom, to clear the counter of daily use things, like-new $3.00, fits my beachy theme-
Dave mounted it on the wall with a few small nails, looks great!
When I spot something vintage looking I stop and look! A little French here, translated to a grocery store list, $1.99. I'll hang it on my kitchen wall-
Keeping with some French country, $3.00-
French Country/Shabby Chic Ideas-
Speaking of French country decor.... I borrowed several books from my local public library, only five minutes from my house. One I checked out was Romantic Prairie Style by Fifi O'Neill, and it gave me some great ideas-
While I'm not into the chandeliers, lace, etc. I've always loved old pieces. Worn by time and well-loved. Here are a few of my favorite shots-
Kitchen, great use of faux stone wallpaper
Kitchen, love the textures
Note the tin roof section over the desk, brilliant!!!
Porch, what's not to love?
Love the light and wire fruit rack
Cheap couch rehabbed by simply stapling fabric over seat, smart!
LOVE this bedroom! More inspiration for my paint job next month! Maybe light blue???
Smoky view down our neighborhood street today
Fire season and smoke has hit the West. The triple digit heat is bad enough, but I'm thankful for the A/C. It has been smoky the last few days, but today was the worst-
We decided to drive up to Idaho City for lunch hoping it would be more clear-
A bit better!
We stopped at our favorite little spot Trudy's, with her vintage collections on the walls-
The whole place was full of these kinds of things! Love it and GREAT Food!
Bedroom view, morning chickens out
A Different View-
So many photos I post show the back and front yard, but from similar angles. I realized this morning I never showed a different view from our master bedroom window, see above and below-
Bird food I put out on the fence top
Hummingbird near the center, it LOVES that plant!!!
