Hello, friends! I hope everyone is having a great start to a new week! Today, I am going to share with you some of my favorite farmhouse finds from Amazon. We all know Amazon is a great place to get just about anything. Did you know you can find a lot of cute and vintage-looking farmhouse items as well?
Here are some of the things from Amazon I actually own and use.
On to the living room. I recently found out I have a little obsession with throw pillows. I’m actually waiting for a few more to come in the mail! For now, here is an adorable little pillow cover:
In the kitchen, I have a vintage-looking bread box. I’m sure you have seen this bread box before! It just has a nice vintage look to it and makes any kitchen look great.
I also like to use barn star decorations in my kitchen.
Lastly, I will show you a cute little vintage-looking soap bowl I previously wrote about in my post, Adding Vintage Charm to your Dresser. I relocated the little soap bowl in my little lady’s bathroom, but kept the toiletries bowl in mine.
I have a vintage wish list and I decorate with items from antique stores whenever I can. However, sometimes you have to wait to find some of these treasures. That makes it much more exciting when you do find what you are looking for at an antique shop!
I’m so glad I am still able to incorporate the vintage look into my decor by purchasing some of these great items online!
Happy shopping and have a great day!

Hello! Today, I am going to show you a cute little project I worked on over the weekend. It is for my little lady and I call it a shabby chic play area!
Some of my favorite projects are the ones for my little girl. I love making creative spaces for her! She plays so well by herself. I can hear her in there just singing away in her cute little voice!
I only needed to buy one thing for this project. It is a big plus when you want to change something up and realize you already have most of what you need. So I just needed a small rug.
I showed you in my previous post, sweet little girl’s room, how I had her room set up. She had a canopy over her bed instead of a headboard. I decided to move her bed and use the canopy as a little nook for her to play or read in. That is why I needed the small rug. I found a pretty pink shag rug from Target. It is very comfortable to sit on.
I also placed a pretty pillow, some toys, and a book in there.
We also had this cute pink poodle nightlight. It looks great at night!
A lot of pink going on here! I’m glad we went with the two-toned walls in her room. When we first moved into our house, my older girls shared this room. We had cotton candy pink everywhere! After that it was purple because the girls got older and had their own rooms. My middle daughter took this room. She loves purple so that’s the color she wanted for her walls. So many paint color changes happened throughout the years!
I am constantly changing things up. It forces me to be creative. My job can be very stressful at times so using my creativity is very therapeutic for me.
While I was out this past weekend, I also spotted this darling vintage jewelry box. I bought it at an antique store and gave it to my little girl. It’s perfect for storing all of those tiny little toys she has.
I hope you enjoyed this little area I creating for my daughter. Let me know what you think!
Leilani certainly loves it!
Good morning! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! We’ve been having some nice sunny weather here in Florida so I was able to soak up some Vitamin D.
Today, I’ll be showing you how to make beautiful wine cork flower bouquets. These make great gifts for Mother’s Day!
I absolutely love these little bouquets! The bouquets are simply adorable and they look great just about anywhere. Plus, they are super easy to make!
I really need to give credit to my middle daughter for this idea. She made me something similar last year. I just revised them a bit. Let’s get started!
These are all of the supplies I used for this project:
Most of the project supplies came from my local Micheal’s craft store. The only thing I needed to buy online were the wine corks. These are great because they come in a variety of sizes. Or maybe you happen to have some around!
The first step is to boil your selection of corks for about 15 minutes. This will avoid crumbling of the cork when you try to make a hole in it. Make sure you allow them to cool completely.
The second step is to make a hole in the middle of the cork just big enough to fit a small flower stem.
Cut up the flower stems to your desired length. You want to make sure they are not too big. Insert the stem into the wine cork.
Repeat with all of the corks you are using. I went with batches of three. Two tall corks in the back and one short cork in the front.
Simply tie your ribbon around all three corks. That’s it! You can also add these cute little tags I have shown here in case you want to add a gift message to them.
You can be as creative as you want with this project. Mix and match colors or types of flowers.
Like I mentioned before, these are just the most adorable little gifts! I’m confident your gift recipient will agree!
I hope you enjoy making these little wine cork bouquets as much as I did!
