White, Wicker and Quilts

I love the way this part of our living room looks when the sunshine comes streaming in so today I thought why not share it with you guys!

All of the white mixed with the wicker and wood looks so pretty with the bright sunshine on it.

I was so excited to find an antique linen pillow case on Etsy with a tan colored monogram on it. It is a long and skinny pillow case so I can use it folded over this way or long ways on a rectangular pillow. The chair slipcover and white quilt are both ebay finds.

Quilts in a basket are one of my favorite things and a staple in every room of our farmhouse. I am quite obsessed with my newest quilt that I bought at the Springfield Antique Show, it just begs to be photographed.

As far as what's been going on with house...Last weekend we got two walls of plaster and lathe down from the dining room in preparation to put the new windows in. And this week at night after the kids are in bed I have been removing the plaster and lathe from the ceiling. This is the area where the pellet stove was just to give you a frame of reference.

I can't even begin to tell you the amount of mouse, chipmunk and squirrel "droppings" that are up there and fall on me while I am doing it. It is all worth it though because the ceiling is going to look amazing once I am done! This weekend we are going to put the new windows in along the wall behind me in the picture above...can't wait.

I will leave you with some prettier images....

All my best till next time!


  1. Oh, just look at you. You are the hardest worker and your beautiful home is the result of all that! Your corner of the living room looks so cozy.

  2. It is perfect with the sunlight and all the different shades of white, cream, and textures of the wood and wicker. I enjoyed decorating with white pumpkins as well this year. Your living room looks calm and inviting! Happy Autumn

  3. Capturing the light is not just beautiful, it's a talent. My heart softened with your photos. I love the basket with the white (Casper) pumpkins---I think I'll try that if you don't mind!

    I feel for you in the work you're's disgusting but you have a goal in mind. Kudos to you! :)

  4. Your new quilt is gorgeous...what a great find! Cannot wait to see your dining room when you're finished. I know it will be beautiful.

  5. Dear Megan, what a project!!! I am very nosey to see the After, now I have seen the mighty before... oiii
    Your cosy corner, the pumpkins, the beautiful setting - all speaks to me :) BUT what I like most, is to see things changing. Soon it will look here a bit like this too.
    So, let´s do it - happy greetings from Méa

  6. Been there, done that! It makes you wonder how many of those little animals have passed through the insides of the house. Hopefully the weather will be nice for your window replacement this weekend - I was not ready for that cold spell we had last week (I'd like that northern PA winter to hold off as long as possible!) Everything looks great, I especially love that beautiful quilt!

  7. Love seeing the calm in the sunshine before the chaos of the plaster removal. I've seen the frightening piles of nests and poop that come out of an old ceiling. It will all be worth it. Many years ago I exposed the beams in my dining room ceiling and I've always loved it!

  8. Thank you for the lovely photos. (and the working one lol) It looks so dreamy there.

  9. Your design is so inviting. Made me feel relaxed as I looked at the photos. Congratulations on your hard work. Can't wait to see the finished project. I bet those windows will look amazing!

  10. I have been in love with your house and blog for a while and am glad i joined,what you have done is wonderful,thanks for sharing.
