Flowers on the Porch and French Market Baskets...


Hi Friends ~ I hope you're enjoying the week and had a nice Valentine's Day. 

Valentines Day is always a happy morning for me, decorating the breakfast table and putting out little surprises for our three sons to remind them how much they are loved. This year though, had a slightly different feel as the boys literally hobbled down to the table. Two boys have (small) broken bones - one has to wear a big boot on his foot, and the other has a splint. The third son was on day three of a fever. 

Mama said there'd be days like this...

This Weather is for the Birds... {Keeping Chickens and Ducks}


We'd just gotten home on Sunday, and our youngest (8) could hardly ditch his church clothes, for a pair of shorts, fast enough. You see, it was February and sunny in Seattle... something to be celebrated! Never mind it was 44 degrees (and a winter coat would soon round off his "snow day on top, beach day on bottom" look).

And then to add to the seasonal confusion, all the leaves on the ground may lead you to believe it is fall. We're a little behind on fall clean-up. Truthfully, it always takes us until spring with our little-by-little approach.

Still, the sun was shining and we felt so alive and free...

Sundays at Home {Link Up Party}



Thank you for joining us for Sundays at Home! Today we spotted some green buds on the vines, and our daffodils are several inches tall... spring is on its way!

We hope you enjoy the weekend and have a happy Valentine's Day this coming week!

What Does This Windmill, Rolling Cart, and Olive Bucket Have In Common?


Did you guess what the windmill, rolling cart, and olive bucket have in common? 

They are all old, with obvious signs of wear. 

Are you drawn to timeworn treasures like I am? If you are, you probably agree that there's something comforting about these one-of-a-kind, imperfect finds from the past. They've got character and soul, and inspire creative backdrops for living. Use them as intended, or repurpose them in an unexpected way. Make them pop against more modern finishes, or blend them with other vintage decor.

We're glad you've joined us, and hope all the inspiration in this link-up party will brighten your February day.

They Inherited a 1905 Farmhouse, All Its Contents, and 125 Acres (Part Three)

It's been almost a year since we've checked in on Katie, whose family inherited a 1905 Texas farmhouse, all its contents, and 125 acres of countryside. If you missed the first two posts, you're going to want to get caught up first! 

(Find Part One here and Part Two here.)

And now let's hear the latest from Katie...

The farmhouse currently in the renovation process.

Unique Vintage Farmhouse Finds {What Stays and What Goes to the Shop}

Hi friends ~ Thank you for your encouragement these last several months as we started our shop space inside of M&M Antiques in Monroe, WA. Many of you who are local have even come in and shopped. That means so much to me!

Today I thought I'd share some recent farmhouse finds and talk about the challenge of determining what we keep in our home vs. what goes into the shop. That's a question I get asked a lot... How do you know what to keep and what to sell?

First, let me say that I try to offer items in the shop that I would use in our own home. That helps me when considering purchases for the shop space. (But it can also cause me to second-guess keeping things because they would usually work so well in our home! See what I mean?! ;)


This 1920's hutch was a tough decision. One hundred year-old patina like this is hard to find. But, it is in our shop where it is holding a lot, and will hopefully make someone very happy!
