Texas Tulip Farm

Hi friends.  Are y'all as thrilled as I am that it's Spring?  I absolutely love Spring! The days get longer, the grass gets green, my favorite plants & trees bloom and it's time for my favorite holiday.

On Good Friday we visited the Texas Tulip Farm.  Check out their story here.  My photos really don't do it justice - it was gorgeous!

I also have some pretty blooms of my own in the back yard - Azaleas!

I can't wait for my Hydrangeas to start blooming!  Also excited about season 2 for my Hydrangea Tree!  Happy Spring & Happy Easter!

Shades, Snow & the Shop!

Just a few random updates...I recently ordered new shades for the chandelier in our eat-in kitchen area.  I was going for lighter/brighter.  Here is before & after:

I love red in a kitchen, but was ready for something lighter.

Still has some red, but overall lighter.

With the light on - a hint of gold.

Texas has had some winter weather this week, including a couple of inches of snow.  Here is our sweet Riley in the snow.  She will be 11 in May but acts like a puppy in the snow!

And finally, a few recent pics from the Shop!

2015 is off to a great start at the Shop, and we simply love what we do!

Farmhouse style in the kitchen!

Are you picking up on a theme here?  I love Farmhouse style!  I wish I could paint our kitchen cabinets and install a farmhouse sink...but, for now I'll just be excited about some new farmhouse accessories.  I found an awesome "farmhouse" sign which was the last piece needed to re-style the space above our kitchen cabinets!

We have been in our home for 13 years and it's always refreshing to make a change!

Farmhouse style in the laundry room!

Hi friends!  Back in October of 2011, I shared photos of our updated laundry room - see that post here.  I went from kind of a garden theme to more of a clean, farmhouse feel.  If you look back at the photos you will notice that I avoided taking a photo of the door that leads to the garage.  I hated the door - it was solid and very plain.  I've been searching for an antique door with more character for quite some time.  I finally found the PERFECT door and couldn't be happier!

I love being able to see out the windows.  I love entering our home by turning an antique glass door knob.  I love the farmhouse feel of the door.   

We don't know if this will be our forever home or not, but I'm pretty sure this door is going with us if we move!

Gallery Walls

I love gallery walls!  I love pretty much every gallery wall I've ever seen.  The options are endless - there are no real rules - and you can definitely "color outside the lines" when it comes to gallery walls. We recently completed two different gallery walls in the shop:

You can see in the second photo that we used lots of different items and mixed several styles.  When you hang the first few things you may doubt it, but just keep going - gallery walls turn out great!

Christmas comes early for shop keepers!

Hi friends!  It's November, the time change has occurred, and Texas is experiencing a cool down - that's a recipe for burning Fall-scented candles and decorating mantles!  I know it also makes many of you giddy just thinking about the upcoming Holidays and that decking the halls is on your mind!  I'll be honest...I wasn't quite ready to say goodbye to summer, I hate the time change and I'm pretty sure my tan isn't going to last thru November.  Can I get an "Amen" from any other summer girls out there?!

Despite my concerns about mild seasonal depression and reduction in Vitamin D (ha!), we cheerfully decorated the shop for Christmas!  Yes, we are fully stocked with Christmas items for every style from whimsical to traditional.  We are your source for gifts too - don't forget your hair stylist and teachers!  And let's not just skip over Thanksgiving - we have gorgeous serving pieces and other decor items for that little gem of a holiday too. 

For your gift list - we carry:
LUX & Candleberry candles (both made in the USA)
ABC Scripture Cards 
MudPie for baby and home
The Home T shirts featuring Texas (amazing!)
Wickman candle accessories
plus antiques & vintage - something new every weekend!
