~Rusty Birdcage Chandelier~

Hello everyone.  I have been very absent lately due to life and family.  My oldest daughter finished her volleyball season yesterday which has kept us hopping, so I'm going to be optimistic and hope I will have a little nore time on my hands.  No winter sports, just my youngest daughter's dance classes two days a week.  I've also been busy getting things ready  for the window space at Monticello's where I will be for the month of November.  It's going to be beginning to look a lot like Christmas:-)  All these things in my life have kept me away from blogging as much or leaving comments, but I'm still here and still looking at all your wonderful blogs and hope to have more time in the future.

I know I already showed you a little bit of this area in my bedroom when I shared my lovely new bedspread, but I just added this wonderful rusty iron birdcage and stand and wanted to share it with you.  I got this years ago from my friends Mom and it is amazing!!!  I've always had it outside and in recent years  I used them seperately.  I looked out my window the other morning, saw it and a lightbulb went off.  So I hosed it down brought it inside and added this little chandelier.

What do you think?  Doesn't it look great?  I love when things come together like this.  Now hopefully the rest of the room can actually come together also.  Just the right amount of rustic charm.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

~White Wednesday # 123~

Well the weather here has gotten very chilly and was only 32 degrees when I took the kids to school this morning....bbrrr.  I thought today would be a perfect day to share some photos of  my snowberries.  (Sorry for the poor quality of these pics...I'm still in desperate need of a new camera.)

I placed them in an old oil can and have them sitting in my laundry room next to a really cool old chalkboard that I picked up last month.  Our laundry room is where my family comes in and out of our house most of the time, so it's a great place for notes.  Still working on this room, but am really liking how it's coming along and can't wait to share. Enjoy!  xoxo K.


Michelle over at Petite Michelle Louise is my featured blog today.  I'm sure most of you are familiar with her blog and Etsy store, but if not, you are in for a real treat.  She was recently featured in Somerset Life magazine for her inspiration holders.

I love her style and she is so creative.  If you are in need of a white fix, you have to check out her Pinterest board.  I could get lost for hours in all her inspiration:-)

~Fall Harvest~

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  We had dry weather and it seems the leaves are changing color all at once.  I picked up this pumpkin at the produce stand by my kids' school on Friday.  Don't you just love the color and shape?
  
It's hard to believe October is already coming to an end and time to put my garden and flower beds to rest until next Spring.  Enjoy Fall!  xoxo K.

~White Wednesday # 122~

I picked up this great old clock this weekend with the perfect amount of rust and chippy white paint.  It reminds me of how fast time flies by.  It's already the middle of the month and I've only had time for three posts.  I have lots of ideas, but life and my family seem to take up most of my time lately.

I hope you enjoy the few photos I was able to take today with some beautiful white roses in a tote next to my new clock.  xoxo K.

I recently came across Dru's lovely blog A Fine Farmhouse.  I love how she mixes primitives with whites for a great rustic look.  She also sells her primitives so you'll have to stop and check out her blog and see what she's been up to:-)

~White Wednesday # 121~

Just a quick post today before I head out.  Fall is definetley here in the PNW, so I decided I should be prepared even though I'm still waiting for the Summer that we never had.

I love to add white mums and baby pumpkins to my porch every year.  All you really need to get an instant Fall look.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

Today I'm featuring Sandi at Wayside Treasures.  She is a die hard WW participant and I always enjoy her photos.  She's been doing some Fall decorating of her own....love these hydrangeas.

She also has an Etsy store that is stocked with some amazing stockings.

And if you like bottles, you can check out some that she has altered in her bottle shop.  Hop on over to her blog and get ready to be inspired:-)

~White Wednesday # 120~

We've been hit with some blustery weather lately which makes me want to stay inside and decorate.  So this morning I started some soup in the crockpot and got busy changing a few things in my bedroom.  This room has been so neglected with piles everywhere even though I've envisioned how I'd like it for a while now.

My goal today was to share with you the lovely ruffled prairie style bedspread and pillows that I purchased way back at the beginning of the Summer....sorry it took so long Shellagh.  This has got me started on this room and am now excited to keep working on it.  I will share more photos as things are completed.

I can't tell you enough how much I love them:-)  I think they are a perfect fit for all my other bedroom decor.  The perfect amount of ruffles in a creamy soft fabric......yum!  This is a white rosary I just found sitting on a couple french bibles.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

I think it is fitting to feature Shellagh's blog and linen shoppe today...Ticking and Toile.  Some of you may already be familiar with her, but if you are not, I'd advise you to get on over there and check it out:-)  She is a talented seamstress and has  some great stuff for sale.

We met a couple years ago and have stayed in contact and try to get together when time allows.  She has made some great pillows, tablecloth etc... for me and I couldn't be happier with all of them.  Here are a couple pics of her bedroom....love it!
