Farmhouse Vignette - On The Upstairs Landing!

Welcome! Come see me decorate a table and wall space on the upstairs landing! 

So typically before I place things on the wall, I will map out the look I'm going for on the floor, this allows me to get a visual before I nail things into the wall permanently.
Everything you see here is from Hobby Lobby, minus the wreath, which is from Homegoods.
I am loving the look of my shop light, I really think it adds to the farmhouse look I am aiming for.
So as you come up the stairs, this is the new look! I hate that ugly almond colored light switch, so excuse that....all of my outlet covers need to be changed out. Can you say...DATED? 
At night, this area looks so cozy! I am all about the ambiance. ;)
I hope you guys like this look, let me know what you think.
Thanks for visiting!
XOXO, ♥️ ~Liz

Hobby Lobby - Fox Den Antiques Haul!!

Happy Saturday!! Today, I am sharing a Hobby Lobby/Fox Den Antiques Haul!  This is a random video I threw together yesterday, so my apologies for the poor quality and sound. ;)  Can I just say how excited I am that they opened a Hobby Lobby in my area, finally!! 
I hope each of you have a wonderful weekend! Come back and see me next week, and I'll show you how I decorated with these items. I'm off to grab a cup of coffee and begin decorating before we head off to a cheer competition later this afternoon. 
XOXO, ❤️ ~Liz

Foyer Vignette With My New Shop-light

Welcome Friends! Today I will be sharing a new vignette in my foyer.  I shared about my new "shop light" yesterday in the video post below. Join me and I'll show you how I used this light.
(How I started this idea ~ start to finish!)
Let me begin by letting you know, I jump straight into my spring decor after Christmas. During the darker, cold, gloomy days of winter, I have to add a little "spring" to my decorating, it's a reminder of brighter, warmer days ahead!
Here is one of my new wreaths.
Here are some of the supplies I used. A wreath, shop light ($9.97 ~ at Lowes), extension cord, command hook, and a 60watt lightbulb.
I've had the two tall topiaries for forever, so I put one on either side of the chalkboard to add height.
 I love adding garden balls to my spring decor.
And Mr. Bunny is new, I found him at an Antique store last week.
I really - really like the shop light, it really makes the space look cozy. I don't know about you, but I am all about the cozy factor all through the year. :)
Thanks for stopping by!

Transitioning From Tuscan Style To Farmhouse Style Decorating

Hello, sweet friends! Is anyone still around? Please pardon my absence from blogging. I just don't have the time to blog and video like I once did, but when I do have something to share, I will.  I hope each and every one of you had a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year!
I really should re-title my blog and name it...
The Suburban Farmhouse,
because I am trying to transform my home from Tuscan to Farmhouse style. I know everyone has their own spin on "Farmhouse Style" so this is my version of it.
I ordered 2 pip berry garlands from Amazon and added 4 candle holders/4 LED Candles - on timers, and centered it all around my iron/wood gate and hung a spring wreath from it.  I do not decorate for Winter, I go straight to my spring decor, because it is cheerful and makes me happy. It reminds me of warmer/brighter days ahead. ;)
Guess what I did? I created this faux mantle. We have very tall windows and I wanted to add a focal point wall.  I moved my dining room to the living room, and my living room to the dining room, and I am LOVING it!
The little pops of yellow and blue are so soothing and cheerful. 
We don't use our dining room often, so I decided to accessorize and dress the room as if it were staged, ha! 
These are some accessories on the side buffet.
 I added some faux bread to this basket.  
At the other end of the table I added some faux artichokes in a white bowl. Remember, this is purely for looks...just something pretty to look at as we pass by this room. ;)
The brown 1980's hutch will be chalk painted white, soon!
I have more to show you in this room, but I am still working on a few things.
I am looking for a huge area rug to go under the table, but I haven't come across one I like yet. So I sit and I wait....
It's been so-so cold outside, so I had to bring some spring colors inside. :)
I just purchased the hutch you see in the background - with the market sign on top. I love this new piece.
What I think is missing and so desperately needed is a large area rug and some extra long curtains to add warmth to the space. 
I'm trying to add more pops of white with natural wood colored - rustic pieces.
I went to Hobby Lobby last week and found some great Farmhouse style accessories....oh boy!!
So that's it for today, ladies! I have so much to show you. 
I hope I can find some time to add some videos to the mix.
I have four daughters all in cheer, 3 are in school cheer, plus all four are in competitive cheer, and tumbling classes. Two are also in choir, so we are a busy family. I'm always taking pictures and video when I decorate, but just when I think I have time to post something, somebody has to go here, or there, so this mom never gets around to doing it. lol! ...Motherhood! 
I hope I haven't lost all of you, I miss you guys.
Sending Love and ((Hugs)) ~Liz
