Our New Farmhouse Dining Room Chairs {and the gasp heard round the world!}

I haven't been doing many home projects this summer. Unless we can define "home projects" as laundry and dishes...? With three growing boys on summer vacation, we've been busy living. I know you can relate, top that, or at least imagine the full-of-life days. 

But, I did want to share with you what happened to me last week, that just might motivate you to visit that thrift shop you've given up on, or follow those hand-drawn yard sale signs the next time you see them...

Sundays at Home #168

Hello everyone and welcome to this week's "Sundays at Home Link Party." We are so glad you have stopped by! Our lavender is in full bloom, the sun is shining, and even our Pacific Northwest grass is looking more like hay (with 2+ acres, keeping green grass during the summer months is not really an option for us... I'm just thankful for this warm summer, which isn't always a guarantee in the Seattle area!).

This one's for all you junk-lovin' pickers out there... {A Summer Discovery!}

My husband and three boys had come across some place they couldn't wait to take me back to, just 20 minutes from our house. (My reaction when we got there didn't disappoint them! :)

We drove down a beautiful country road, passing farms and pastures along the way. We came to little red farmhouse with a long, single level shop behind it. To the right was a shed, and to the left several outbuildings including a barn. As we drove into the driveway I got a glimpse into the shed, overflowing with antiques. This is what I saw...

Welcome back to Sundays at Home! I hope you had a good week. 

Several people have asked about the cow pillow on our couch, and where they can find one. It's not always available, but it is now, so before we jump into the party, I wanted to share that you can find the rustic cow pillow here!

Farmhouse Finds: French Market Baskets and Linen Towels ...

Hi Friends ~ I hope your summer is going well. Today I'm sharing two accessories that have added more of that authentic farmhouse feel and function to our home, and why I love them...

French Market Baskets are beautiful and make me dream of collecting treasures at a provincial flea market... or fresh-baked baguettes from the bakery... or beautiful bouquets from a charming roadside stand. 

...Or pretty much any dreamy pastime! :)

But, French Market Baskets are not only dreamy, they are also very useful! Take them to the beach, to a farmer's market, on an overnight getaway, or use them around the house for a beautiful storage option. You'll be surprised just how often you use them!

Meet My Friend Jen of Where Sisters Gather... {Farmhouse Decor}

You know the old saying, "The Lord works in mysterious ways..." 
Well, I would like to add that the Lord works in all ways. Including Instagram.

I came to know Jen through Instagram, and let me tell you - she is the real deal. Not only could I (and you - trust me) get lost in her beautiful Instagram feed (for days), but she is genuinely kind, insightful, and has an amazing gift with words.  I have been blessed with her words of encouragement many, many times.
