Amazon Farmhouse Round Up

The other day I asked my husband, “are we too farmhouse? I mean…we live in a subdivision. I don’t want to get too crazy with the farmhouse. Just touches.”

His reply, “not too much. Well? Nah, we’re more industrial.” 

My interpretation? I NEED MORE FARMHOUSE.

Kind of like Christopher Walken needs more cowbell…and I definitely had a fever. (Thanks Amazon, for scratching that itch) ;-)

Operation: Dining Area

My house is open design. One little change seems to throw the whole room off. Well, I’ve made a few changes, and now my brain has been on “tilt” trying to tie a few loose ends together.

Earlier this summer I hung some pretty shutters in my dining area. While I loved them, they looked like they needed more of a purpose. Here is what I’m planning to work with…(affliate links are included under each picture so you can find these online and purchase them yourself. I get a slight commission for referring you).

Tablescapes get easier the more I do them, but sometimes I don’t have the right “stuff”. My dining room has no centerpiece. Isn’t this an atrocity? Well, I loved these placemats…so that I could throw a little “French” in my “farmhouse”. Now…need to grab a few fall items and complete my tablescape…

I seem to have an abundance of three-tiered things. So I’m adding to my collection, and now I can show off my Bombay Co. mugs that I’ve had hidden away for a long time. Or maybe my grandma’s old spongeware for a pop of blue?

Arrows are still cool. I know eventually this fad, too, shall fade. Throw pillows always do the trick when trying to keep up with fads without going overboard.   71VroVzCqyL._SL1200_
