Are you looking for warmth lately? Our weather has actually been very nice for January. I have heard that will end soon. We shall see. We don’t get to control the weather do we? Anyway…I just wanted to share a little warmth with you today, farmhouse style.
I happened upon a beautiful wooden tray at Kirkland’s last weekend. It just said “farmhousey” to me. It was over on the clearance side…which was a huge plus to me. The Mr. gave his okay…and that always makes me feel good about a purchase. The Mr. and I are a team, in every way, so I like for us to be on the same page, especially with purchases. Lands sakes….how did I get off on a Dave Ramseyish rabbit trail? Any….way……..I loved the wooden tray.
Yesterday was a hard day. Several things came up and I decided while I was in the grocery store…to buy myself some flowers. I thought that a bit of cheer at the Farmhouse was definitely in order. I love yellow all year, but especially in the middle of winter. Sometimes you just have to make your own sunshine and create your own warmth.
I also picked up a couple of new candles at TJ Maxx last weekend. If you don’t already know this….that is an amazing place to find candles. I wound up with two of these Paddywax candles for the price that you would normally just pay for one. They are soy….which I adore…and they smell amazing. As you already know, candles are a great way to add warmth to your home. I love the ambiance that they bring.
The light was so good in the dining room this morning. ( I am such a newbie in the photography department…but it’s on my list for this year.) I tried to not doctor these up too much…so that you could feel what I felt. The warmth was incredible.
I hope that wherever you are today, sweet Dirt Roaders, that you feel warmth. Warmth…especially in the times of winter, is a very good thing.
Love from the dirt road,
