Bloom where you are planted!

I absolutely LOVE flowers...this time of year is so sweet! My yard is in full bloom! I encourage everyone to take time and plant something beautiful in your garden! This year more than ever I have realized how blessed I truly am. We don't always understand where we are in life exactly, but trust that all things happen for a reason! And, no matter what the circumstance....bloom where you are planted!

A few of my favorite things....

These are a few of my favorite custom furniture pieces we've done....they are beautiful! We can do media cabinets, hutches, harvest tables, benches, hall trees, toy boxes, kids tables, jelly cabinets and much more. There are many options...door styles, colors, trim, etc! Pretty, pretty!

Summer Yard Stakes

Summer yard stakes (and more summer iron) coming soon...let me know your needs!

Westmoreland Flea Market-May 14th, 2011

Here are a few pictures from our booth at the Westmoreland Flea Market! We had a super cute booth. Furniture, iron, art by mary Ann Watson, hair accessories by Casey Dyer, photography by Cooper Photography, was very cute! Thanks for all the support and we look forward to seeing you all soon!

One crazy chicken...

After the weekend, I just had, I'm feeling like one crazy chicken! Busy, busy! I have decided to sell some things to make room for more things and try and get more organized too! That's the problem with loving design and funky can't stop! I'm always wanting to move things around. Looking forward to clearing out some things soon!

Lately, my creative juices have really been flowing and that makes me so happy! It never fails, when I seek God and design, I find inspiration! The picture above makes me feel this way too! One afternoon, Margaret (my dear friend and cousin) and I decided to shoot some of my iron pieces out in the little red house behind my house....this shot was so pretty! So simple and so sweet! I love moments like this!

Speaking of dreams...

Speaking of dreams...this is where I'd like to do mine....beautiful! Please note, this is not from my personal collection...only a reference. I think this is such a beautiful setting! Thought I'd share the look with you....

You've got to dream, right?

I am a big many ways! My dream is simple...I want to live a happy, healthy, long and peaceful life! I want simplicity...I want to raise my son on a farm like I was....I want to design....I want to raise sheep....I want to sell pretty things and make people smile...I want my home to be small and beautiful...I want to sit and drink coffee with my husband on our hill each morning....I want to live my DREAM! Dreams can come true!
