Hello, friends! I know summer started a long time ago, however, I just got around to completing my summer foyer decorating. Some of the items from my spring foyer were used. For instance, the picture in my frame and the faux greenery. I wanted more summer vibes with a vintage feel so let’s get going to my summer farmhouse foyer!
For this summer display, I simply added the adorable birdhouse, vintage papers, and some fresh lilies. I also added some vintage books to the bottom of my table. I absolutely love the look of these old books! These were from my local antique shop. You can also find bundles of these on Etsy.
Just look at this cute birdhouse I found! It has such a nice farmhouse look to it. The little birdie was a perfect match. It says, “nurse” on it which is perfect because that is what I am!
This space is so much fun for me to decorate! We were actually without a table in this spot for a long time! It was so empty without it.
My bulletin board is also a great piece to decorate according to the season. I usually keep my little photo circles there along with an insert from a book and a bible verse. For this display, I added some vintage papers to it. The little paper all the way on top to the left is actually dated April 1946!
Are you having a very hot summer where you live? We sure are here in Florida! We are still blessed though because it is not far to the beach. I’m actually ready for fall! I just love seeing all of the decorations up at Hobby Lobby even though it is over 100 degrees outside.
How are you spending your summer?
Hello, friends! The Fourth of July is this week and I can’t believe it! Even though the days are longer, summer just seems to fly by.
A few weeks ago, I met a friend for lunch. I arrived thirty minutes early and I didn’t want to just wait in the car. I drove down the road and found a cute little antique shop. My little lady and I browsed around and I found some adorable mini vintage crates. Whenever I am antiquing, I always try to pick up little things like boxes or cubbies. They always come in handy when you want to add some vintage vibes to a small space.
Today, I am going to show you what I did with these tiny crates.
My antique scale made it into this little vignette. I can’t get enough of this thing! I am constantly moving this beauty around. Vintage scales are always on my wish list. You can’t have too many of them!
I purchased a variety pack of vintage papers from Etsy. I simply wrapped a few of the book pages with some twine and tucked them inside one of the crates. My jelly jar candle made its way inside the other crate along with a vintage flash card.
The candle comes out of the crate when I want to burn it. It just looks so cute inside of the crate when not in use!
That’s it! Just a simple and cute way to use small crates or boxes.
So I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. I usually find myself setting some personal goals this time of the year. Probably due to the slower pace and longer days. There certainly is more time to think even though it seems like time is quickly passing by. Do you do the same thing?
Have a safe Fourth of July!
Good morning! Wow, it feels like forever since I wrote a post! Summer is officially here so that means a relaxed pace, lots of time at the beach, and more time with family. I hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far. I don’t know about you, but I feel like I have a never-ending list of projects to do!
One of my projects was to refresh my living room. The living room before felt so empty to me. I quickly realized it was because my sectional is huge and it lacked throw pillows. Yes, throw pillows! They can make any couch look cozy and inviting.
My next challenge was to figure out how many to get. I went with the rule of threes. Three different sized pillows in each corner of the sectional. Oh, and one more extra because throw pillows are now my new obsession!
My curtains also needed an update. It was hard to let my previous curtains go because I did like the primitive look to them. However, they were dark-colored and I wanted something lighter since my couch is brown. After a lot of searching, I decided on a French ticking pattern.
My little ottoman vignette didn’t change much at all. I just switched out the candle for this cute vintage-looking chicken pull toy.
My little dogs spend a lot of time on the couch. I was a little hesitant in adding all of the pillows because I was afraid they would just get hair all over them. I’m glad that didn’t stop me because I really like how the living room turned out!
So back to that never-ending list of projects to do. Instead of focusing on getting everything done at once, take advantage of this relaxed summer pace and live one day at a time. I know I sometimes have a hard time doing that because it feels like everything has to be done immediately. I quickly realize that is not possible and it also would not be much fun.
