Happy Pumpkin Season!

It’s here! Are we excited?  You bet your pumpkin muffins we are! Today, my mom bought us a cozy throw and some Pumpkin Spice Celestial Seasonings tea. I am armed for pumpkin season.

On a farm it’s always exciting to spend time outside when it cools off.  I can’t wait for a bit of cooler weather for fresh pumpkins on our porch. I actually bought some discounted throw pillows for the porch swing today. A gray and white Moroccan print. Supah cute for fall and winter. Eeeeeeep!

I hope that you are as excited as we are!

A Visit from the Farmhouse

Tags

, , ,

Hey all! How are we doing on this Thursday morning? I am toodling along. Laundry is going, plans for supper are made, and now I’m sitting down with you. Just a visit from the farmhouse today.


I posted the above shot to my IG feed this morning. Those jars always delight my eyes. It could be the turquoise color…or maybe the old lids. Probably both.


It’s supposed to rain in SoMo today. We all voted for a big ol’ Crock Pot of chili, for supper tonight. Can you tell that we are anxious for fall weather? Our pastures can use the rain. I am thankful for the forecast today. 


I hope that you guys have a wonderful day! I hope to post my cloth napkin turned curtains…if I can ever get them to meet my standards. Lol! I am a bit picky with window treatments. (They make me crazy!)

Happy Mon…er…Tuesday!

Hey everyone! Are we runnin’ full steam ahead after the long weekend? I have things going around here…pretty much. It does feel like a Monday though. 

Did everyone have a good holiday? We did. We decided at the last minute to have a little weekend get-away. It was fun! Yesterday though…we just kicked back a bit. That is always nice too.

I hit a couple of different Targets while I was in a town or two that actually had one. I had seen some things on Instagram that I was interested in picking up. They were fresh out of the checked throw pillows that I was after…but I picked up some cloth napkins…and may actually make them into window treatments. Fun…fun!



Are you guys starting to decorate for fall? I’m not just yet…but maybe soon!

Have a great evening!

Rugs Galore

, , ,

You guys!!! How have you been? Has your August been as busy as ours? Ca.Ray.Zee. Today I’m gonna talk a bit about rugs galore okay? Okay!


I am totally in love with this new rug in our entry. Sometimes I buy new things and they have to grow on me. They have to woo my standoffish heart. Not so in this case. It’s crazy…this is the first braided farmhouse rug that we have had at the Farmhouse. What is the dealeo?😉 Anyway…we are all loving this one. It came from a local shop and was a great deal!!!


(I just threw a little mantle love in there for fun.) 


Theeeeeen…on my birthday…I finally got my cowhide that I have been dreaming of. We love it!!! It smells so good too. Leather is my favorite scent. (Sorry bovine population.) I  also love the bit of flair that it adds to our dining room. This is probably my favorite flea market find…ever. (Thank you Mister of mine and parents!!!)

Well…that is my rug rambling! Leave me a comment and tell me all about your summer finds!!! I loooooove to read your comments.

Cozy Is On It’s Way

Hey Guys! Come on in for a bit. I thought that we would just chat a little today about Cozy Is On It’s Way.  Here in Southern Missouri we are feeling thankful for that fact.  Yes…it’s the first of August…but hopefully by the end of next month…the humidity will have let up a bit. By the way…I already have this wreath hanging on the front door of The Farmhouse. I loved it the minute I laid eyes on it. Cozy to the core.

Do you guys have a Rae Dunn collection going?  I am a sucker for pottery of any shape or form…so I love hunting for these mugs. This summer I stashed them in an old locker basket. So fun.  I am actually having a cup of hot tea now.  It’s a blend of organic rose, lavender, and chamomile. It’s very good.  I know…you probably think I’m crazy…but it’s cold in here with the a/c.  I’m telling ya…around this time of year, thoughts of fall are very exciting.  I need to round up the few little things that I put out for the kids when it’s Back to School time. I have also been using Mulled Cider wax in the warmer. Our whole family loves it.

If you follow along on Instagram…you have probably noticed a nod toward the cozy part of the year.  The new black and white plaid curtains in our red room (It used to be red. lol!) are wonderfully cozy.  We also have a new braided rug in our entry. I really do love summer and all of it’s fun…but as a homemaker…the cozy time of year just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Kind of like this hot cup of tea.

Weekend Woo Hoo!

Tags

You made it guys! The weekend is here. Sleeping in on your agenda for tomorrow? Are you feeling it yet? Weekend…woo hoo! 


We pretty much live in a state of “unwind” around here in the summer. During the school year though, which is right around the corner, the weekends are for celebrating.


I hope that whatever you do this weekend, that you feel the mercy and grace of the Almighty. I hope that you find time to count your blessings…more than once.

Monday Musings

Tags

, ,

So here we are. I hope that you guys had a wonderful weekend. Mine was chalked full of sinus crud…but things are a bit brighter today. Thankful for that! Just a few Monday musings for you. You know…stuff to ponder.


Isn’t that the cutest dish brush? I know!!! And those little utility shears? Those came from The Freckled Hen Farmhouse. Sweet Natalie can totally hook you up right here: 

https://freckledhenfarmhouse.com

You can also find them on Insta!!!


Our zinnias are blooming. They are so fun! Maybe…possibly my favorite flower. I’m just not sure…because I love peonies too. I love roses also…in pale pink and cream. So many choices.


It has been hotter than a firecracker here in southern Missouri. Our poor little ladies and one gentleman (rooster) will be glad when it cools off a little…I’m sure. 

A bunch of random Monday musings just for you. From me. The end.

Seventeen Years Ago

Tags

Seventeen years ago today…I was finishing up three weeks of bed rest. I was also heading to the hospital to deliver our child. She was our first for me to deliver, I had miscarried before her.  Wow…seventeen years ago. Time flies when you are having fun!  She is a treasure…not only to her daddy and I…but to the other blessings that followed her.

Seventeen years ago today…we were living in a little trailer park on the outskirts of town in a tiny little mobile home.  We had no idea how to be parents…but we had (and have) a strong faith in God, and we trusted that He would help us.  He has.  He is good like that.

Seventeen years ago…I learned what pain was, and joy…in the same moment.  I watched as they worked on a tiny little girl, giving her oxygen, and making sure that she was going to be okay.  I was a mother.  The highest calling, second only to already being a wife. I was beginning my life’s greatest work.  Something that I will do all my days…even when my children are grown. My life was no longer about just me, just my husband and I, but about making sure that this tiny infant could navigate in this crazy world.  Seventeen years later I see that so much more clearly than I did then.

I have always wanted to be a mother.  Actually…that was all that I ever wanted to be, a wife and mother.  I feel that for over twenty years now…I have been living the dream and I look forward to many more of those years. Being a wife and mother has made me a better person. I am so thankful for that. It has taught me that we are truly happy when we don’t make life about ourselves…but about others.

Happy Birthday Angel Baby,

 Love,

Momma

I hope that your evenin’ is cozy and relaxing. I hope that you feel content and full of blessings. I also hope that the God of Heaven and Earth wraps you in His blessed peace. That would be a great start to the week!
