  1. We have moved to the mountains of Tn. this year. Had a fantastic little garden. Froze 2 bushels of green beans,corn,chopped green peppers,tomatoes and the winter squash looks beautiful. I sent a letter of thanks to the lady that owned the mini farm before us. She amended the soil so well we needed very little fertilizer. Best thing we ever did was to move here.

  3. Hi, love your blog! Here's how to protect your chickens: Around your fence, using a sledge hammer, put down green, metal fence posts. (They won't rust.) Around this, along the sides of the fence, & up over the top of the fence anchor (with wire twists), enough chicken wire or hardware cloth (it's a stronger, finer woven wire), to make a protective cage, or raptor cover, over your entire chicken yard. Your chickens can come & go out into their yard, safe from owls, raccoons, bob cats, coyotes, and chicken hawks. This is the only safe & sure way to protect chickens. Also, chicken snakes will eat chicken's eggs. You can buy online 'wooden eggs' & set them around. The chicken snake will swallow these & die. Good luck. We happily raised chickens for years. I love your little farm. Bev

  5. Hi! I stumbled on to your site recently and love it! Your style is so sweet and I especially enjoy it since we've recently purchased a little farmhouse and barn on a few acres in North Idaho. Looking forward to enjoying more fun things here on your site. Keep it up, girl! :o)

  12. Hi! I'm so inspired by your posts! I keep going back to the picture of your front porch. Would you mind sharing the front door color? Thanks!

  13. I am about to take the plunge and paint my kitchen countertops white and I was wondering how yours have been holding up since you painted them. Also, did you sand the countertops between each coat of paint? I hope mine turn as good as yours did. Thank you for the inspiration!

    1. That's exciting because it can make such a big difference in the feel of your kitchen. So, our kitchen gets a TON of use... we have three growing boys who are almost always hungry. :) Our counters are getting pretty chipped up after a year and and four months. I keep thinking I should sand them again and put a fresh coat of paint on. So, what I would say is yes - I would definitely do it again. Going from dark green counters to white lightened that whole area of our home. But also yes, you will see some scratches and chips. Just try to think of it as you would painted furniture. Light sanding between coats helps...

    2. Thank you so much! I see that you have trims over your countertops. I also have the same thing in my kitchen and there is some caulk or silicone in between the trims and the countertops. I was wondering if this is the case in your kitchen and if you painted over it...

  14. Hi Julie! I've been linking to Share Your Style for a long time and just read that Des will not be hosting anymore. I'd love to be considered as one of your hostesses if you're going to fill that spot. My blog is French Country Style from the Foot of the Rockies at bringingfrenchcountryhome.blogspot.com. Thanks so much!

  15. Hello. I love your post about the galvanized buckets and planters. I especially love the plant with the purple flowers. What kind of plant is that? I would love to put that plant in a bucket I recently purchased. Thank you.

  16. Hi Julie!

    I discovered your blog a few weeks ago via Pinterest and I love your style. Once I saw your posts about Farmhouse Style Storage and that beautiful picture of those galvanized tubs on the porch, it got the wheels turning, because your aesthetic fits perfectly with ours.

    I work for a quickly growing decor company called Craft House Designs (a daughter company of CWI Gifts) that specializes in modern farmhouse decor, and I would just love to work with you. I would love to partner with you for a product review, a giveaway, a discount promotion, or anything else that might spark your inspiration.

    Please feel free to explore our website and ask any questions you may have if you're interested in diving into the details! (www.crafthousedesigns.com)

    Thank you!

  17. Hello!

    I discovered your page by pinterest and LOVE your ideas! I have a curve ball for you...what would you do if you were moving to the desert? I plan to move to AZ in the next year and if all things go as I will own my first house. I love farmhouse styles, but wondering how I can make the landscape feel more like...me.

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Lauren ~ Thanks for your kind words. That's so exciting about you having your first home in Arizona. Some of my best friends live there! :) You can definitely incorporate your style inside your home, as far as outside... you may want some hardscape. I love pea gravel and have always dreamed of doing a pea gravel courtyard. You could take some inspiration from Southern France, where it is also warm. I'm not sure what types of plants and greenery grows in the desert and am wondering about lavender? Keep me posted! ~julie

  19. Hi there! I was wondering what paint color your front door is? I recently bought a very old house that needs a great deal of love and elbow grease. The siding is a dark gray and I want to bring more light and color to the front porch. Maybe a color like your front door would be the answer I'm looking for? Thanks... and beautiful blog!
