Farmhouse Decorating for the 4th of July!

Ah, summer! Those lazy, what-should-we-do-today, sun-drenched days. Time at the lake, get togethers with friends outdoors, picking berries, going to the fair, family vacations... there's just so much to love about summer!

Sundays at Home {Link Party}



Welcome back to Sundays at Home! It's been a really busy stretch at our home... within five days time, we celebrate our youngest son's birthday, Father's Day and my husband's birthday. We are also prepping for a last-minute trip across the pond (I can't wait to share more with you soon!). We were early (so unlike us) for our appointment at the passport agency a few days ago, so we headed over to The London Plane for coffee and a snack. If you are ever visiting Seattle, you'll want to put this restaurant/flower shop on your list of places to go. Just look at these peonies!

A New Barn Light!

Some product was received in exchange for promotion. All opinions are my own.

I'm excited to share our new barn light with you! Barn lights are now popular to use in the interior or on the exterior of homes. However, this barn light is actually for our barn (though it would look great almost anywhere!). We selected the Hollywood Bowl light from Steel Lighting Co. because of its large size and unique look. Our barn is really well constructed and I'm so grateful for it. However, I've been wanting to add a little personality to the outside of it for awhile. The new light helps add character and is a great upgrade from the previous flood lights!

Sundays at Home {Link Party}



Welcome back to Sundays at Home! So happy to have you here to either browse through the inspiring home decor posts below and/or link up your recent posts.

Our kids just finished up their last week of school so we are officially on summer break! Now if only we can get the weather to cooperate. It turned cool here again in Seattle and is raining as I type... so it kind of feels like we should be heading to the pumpkin patch, not the pool. So if you're in a warmer climate, please send us some of your sunshine!

A Farmhouse Blog Post Round-Up: Part One

I can't be the only one who feels like 2018 just started? And here we are in June

I want to take a moment to thank you for reading my blog. It's been five years since we moved here to our little farmstead, and four years since I started blogging. Sharing with you here has made this journey even sweeter. I've been blessed to connect with many of you over a shared love of farmhouse style decorating, mini farm living, animals and gardening. I always love hearing what you're up to, so please feel free to comment and I'll do my best to get back to you.


Today I thought I'd begin a round-up of posts this year to date, in case you missed them the first time around. Just click on the image or the link beneath to read the full post...

Sundays at Home {Link Party}



Thank you for joining us here again for Sundays at Home. We hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! 

To all of those who have served our country, or who have family members who have served, thank you so very much. We know there is a great cost for freedom. You have our deepest gratitude...
“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God such men lived.” George S. Patton

Lilacs in the Family Room...


Despite the forecast, live like it's spring. - Lily Pulitzer

I love that quote but thankfully, it does feel like spring in the Pacific Northwest! As I write, it's a sunny, blue-sky, 75-degree day. The kind we could only dream of a month or two ago! I hope you are enjoying spring weather too, and looking forward to summer. I think we're down to 13 days left of school, as we limp towards the finish line...

Sundays at Home {Link Party}



We're so happy you've joined us for Sundays at Home, and hope you're enjoying the spring season! 

It's been wonderful seeing all of nature come back to life here at our little farmstead. We have a few different varieties of lilacs, including the white ones with pink undertones on the table above. I wish we had a scratch 'n sniff feature so you could enjoy their fragrant scent! 

Maybe you have your own lilacs to enjoy. (I hope so!) One of our features this week provides helpful tips for pruning and enjoying lilacs... So let's get this week's party started!
