I took a lot of pictures the day
that all of my company arrived.
Hey, house was clean
and fancied up
what better time to take a few photos?
I haven't shown you the updates
in the Kitchen and Hearth Room.
Plus, I am sure that you are wondering
where all of my
Estate Sale Goodies have landed.
I know that you are lying awake
at night awaiting the updates...
Well, even if you aren't
it will be fun for you to take a look.
See, there are even things
that you haven't seen yet!
Like this adorable little cow
made out of wood.
I found him in the kitchen
of a lovely French style home for $7.00.
See his tag that says "moo".
I would turn him around,
but he is missing an ear!
But I thought that maybe,
just maybe if I rescued him
I could fashion an ear out of something.
Or maybe, he is just the cute cow with the missing ear...
I also placed my copper pot
in the dish cupboard
with a cow painting
and a boxwood wreath.
Are you sensing a theme here?
I was thinking Farmhouse,
red and white,
lots of white dishes
and of course Cows!
That is one of the things I like about living in Kansas.
One could drive about five minutes
out of the city
and be in a completely rural area
with cows and horses and farmland.
This pitcher is usually turned around...
But with Farmhouse being the theme,
it fits right in!
The burlap is still attached to the back
of the dish cupboard.
I like it for now...
Gives a rustic feel to everything.
More of my copper collection
and another cow print.
All Estate Sale Finds.
This is Prime Estate Sale season!
When the weather is nice there seem to be a ton!
Makes it hard to sit at my desk everyday!
I didn't need to change out the dishes,
I just added a few things
like the cows, the linens,
and a runner with a red
hand stitched border on the middle shelf.
I left the green pottery
and the lavender pot on the top
and added more lavender
and a copper watering can.
A basket on the table holds a few treasures
that kind of said "Breakfast on the Farm" to me.
A silver butter dish, a honey pot,
napkins with red and white checked trim,
the tiered dish from Decor Steals,
and daisies in little tiny pitchers
from Nell Hill's a long time ago.
I folded up a sweet red and white tablecloth
so that it looks like a grain sack
and put the basket on top.
In preparation for my guests,
I put the extra leaves in the table on each side.
I have two sets of leaves
that extend the table to 10 Feet!
Too big for us on a daily basis
but it sure comes in handy for a crowd!
I'll show you the Hearth Room tomorrow
and the fun changes that I made.
Until Next Time,
