I think I said the same thing last year at this time but Spring always makes me wish I had a clone. That way one of me could work outside and one of me could work inside. There is always so much to do this time of year and just not enough hours in the day. I LOVE working out in my yard and have spent the last week edging, weeding and mulching. What I don't love is coming in at 7 in the evening and having all the dirt that was tracked in stick to your feet because you haven't had time to wash the floor in the last couple of days and having the piles of stuff you bought at the flea market scattered all about. Needless to say I don't have much time for blogging in the Spring. And I wish I did because I have found so many great things over the past couple of weeks that I am dying to share with you guys. I have really lucked out at estate sales and the flea market, lots of stuff to sell and lots of stuff to keep:)
|Here is some the stuff I bought at the flea market yesterday.|
When I am not working outside I have been working on getting Eli's new room painted so that I can start the baby's room. In the meantime I have a huge pile of stuff accumulating outside the nursery and I can't wait to get started on it!
|Here is a sneak peek at some of the items I have for the baby's room.|
My viburnum is in full bloom so I made sure I found the time to take some pictures of the beautiful blossoms.
I am also making some finishing touches to my sewing/craft room so that I can share it with you sometime soon so stay tuned for that!
And MANY THANKS to Jennifer over at Town and Country Living
for featuring our home in her Charming Farmhouse Series! What an unbelievable honor!
your collection for the baby's room is adorable. looking forward to seeing the finished room.ReplyDelete
I agree you are so lucky to know what you want at such a young age! I'm looking forward to the nursery too!ReplyDelete
Beautiful post and pictures, Megan. I agree....it's always an internal battle...do I clean the house and then work outside...or work outside and come in all dirty and clean the house then...oh the joys of summer! I love your finds and your ironstone pitchers with all the grazing and discoloration...and the flowers are beautiful!ReplyDelete
I think I'm here because of Jennifer's post of your home!! I am a new follower and didn't recognize your blog! Sure glad I did because I hear ya on the clone. It's such a push/pull to be out in the dirt or in with the cleaning, cooking and organizing. I'm excited to see the nursery! You have a great sense of style girl!ReplyDelete
Love your decor and the white flowers....flowers in pitcher are one of my favorite country things! I too wish I could be cloned for inside and outside work!! Enjoy!!ReplyDelete
I love the summers here in Minneapolis. We live for them! I know the baby's room will be so sweet. Looking forward to seeing your sewing room too.ReplyDelete
Your blooms are beautiful and I feel the same way I also need a clone. I always say if I didn't have to sleep I could get so much more done.ReplyDelete
I love your home, Megan! I can't wait to see what new treasures you'll be listing (I'll be looking!). I know what you mean about this time of year. Rain helps ease the stress of feeling the need to be outside sometimes. Like you, tracking in from the yard is a bit of a pain in my house too. When I go to shower, removing my clothes always yields surprises from having been under brush and trees - sometimes crawly things! I hope you're feeling good in this early part of your pregnancy.ReplyDelete
ps - loved seeing your home over at Jennifer's!
Always L*O*V*E hopping over to your Blog!*!*!ReplyDelete
FaB Vignettes... AwEsoMe ViNtaGe!*!*! Y*O*U have such a great eye!!!
Love love love your blog and your feature with Jennifer was awesome. Megan you have the touch and your home rocks.ReplyDelete
If you ever figure out how to be inside and outside at the same time, let me know. I think I'm tracking as much dirt out as I'm bringing in at this point. Nice finds!ReplyDelete
love everything....your flowers are beautiful!!ReplyDelete
I feel the exact same way! We usually don't end up eating supper until like 8:30 in the summer! ...and cleaning the house, forget about it!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful post! Your flowers are so beautiful.. Love it! Hugs from Portugal, ManuelaReplyDelete
oooh. that baby basket!ReplyDelete
Oh goodie. . . so glad we have another awesome space done by YOU to look forward to. I'm so busy I haven't been blogging for a long time. . . I need to catch up. . .ReplyDelete
Hello, I'm here from Town & Country blog also. What a beautiful house! I've spent some time looking over all of your old posts, what an adventure for you and your husband. Just wondering if you would even think to share pictures of your parents' house, since a lot of their things have been given to you??Thanks for sharing your home with us.ReplyDelete
HI, I have been following your blog for a few weeks, and I must say I ab-so-lute-ly love your home! You have a great eye for fantastic finds and know exactly how to use them in your home. I don't know how you have such great luck in your finds, I can never find such beautiful treasures (for the price you do!) in my neck of the woods. Thank you so much for sharing your home and giving me inspiration!ReplyDelete
I love those flowers, too! I found you over on Must Love Junk and I'm your newest follower. I'm originally from PA and love anything farmhouse!ReplyDelete
