Sunny Day


The sun was shining in so brightly the other day that I just couldn't resist snapping some pictures. I also have some new goodies that I wanted to share with you guys.













This late 1800's gathering basket is one of them. I bought it at a little shop that is right on the main street of our town only minutes from our house. Every time I go there I find some really great things, like the awesome rustic trunk that I keep on our porch.







The basket is perfect for some of my vintage linens, most of these are from thrift stores and I just love each and every one of them.





Another new goodie is the shutter hanging in the corner. I bought it at my favorite shop Romantique Boutique in Erie, PA. The shop owner Mickey is so amazing and every time I go to her shop I am blown away by her talent and creativity. I always leave there inspired and with a renewed fire in my belly to one day have my own shop.











And my last new goodie that I am going to share with you today is this pretty table runner that I found at TJMaxx. I had been looking for something just like this but didn't want it to be vintage because with my kids around it's likely to get crayon or something on it.










I am almost finished painting the living room. It has never taken me this long to paint a room before but my reason is totally worth it...




And we finally have the beautiful antique cupboard repaired and moved into Eli's room and I can't wait to tell you guys more about it so stay tuned! Thanks for being such awesome followers, you guys make my day:)

  1. You have countless touches in your home that I could mention. Your coffee table is so perfect with the basket filled with your linens and pine cones---a little of the outdoors and some textiles. That little cutie had me at hello!

    I love everything! :)

  14. Hi! Love your home, always wait for you to post! I have a basket just like yours, I found mine at the Braddock Antique Fair for $20.00, the seller said it was a bread basket. Love all your new touches! Sweet baby Millie!

  18. Wonderful pictures of your home as always. The shutter in the corner is really nice. Makes one wonder what it was attached to years ago? The basket looks great on that table also.
