I took a break this weekend from photographing & projects and it felt GOOOD, but don't worry have some fun things coming soon for you guys!!

{ Our Cottage Style Rustic & Thrifty Fall Dining Room }

Another week down almost & another weekend upon us..Is it just me or does it seem like time these days is just flying by?! I've mentioned this before, but "time" for me is such an issue! I hate looking back & thinking "wow that was so long ago"..With that being said lately my anxiety has been crazy & on top of all that I haven't been feeling the best health wise, & that leads me into this post!! So the blog is not only my business, passion & baby but also my place to release anxiety with being creative & hopefully inspiring you with practical home decor, projects & tips!! Fall is that start to the year that makes me feel so much better not only physically, but mentally too. It's everything cozy, calming & beautiful, and that leads us into the holidays which you guys know is my happy time! So today I'm sharing our fall kitchen with some super simple touches..I usually go crazy with the fall decor, but this year I chose to go really simple & if we're being honest it's my favorite! Come take a closer peek below..



So I moved this cubby up from downstairs a few days ago & loved it!! At first I thought it might compete with the corner cabinet, but it didn't & it also hides the numerous holes in this poor wall hahaha..The tiny neutral pumpkins fit perfectly & I love how the cubby picks up from the wood tones in the picnic basket, centerpiece basket & the huge DIY sign over the patio door { Post coming soon }!!


I picked up this runner from the Target "dollar spot" & I don't think it could be any more perfect for this space!!! I usually don't have much luck at the Target dollar spot, but this was a definite score for $3!! 

Side Note: All sources at end of post!



You will see in some of the photos the black & white sign isn't pictured..That's because at the last minute of photographing I added it from outside & it just finished the space off!! It was a junkin find & fit perfectly with the cozy neutral farmhouse fall style I was going for...& because I'm sign CRAZYYY hahaha!





These plates fit perfectly with my theme I was going with this fall, so I kept them int he cabinet! You can read more about these plates I've been collecting HERE


 

I may have a black & white sign addiction haha..



One of these days I'll replace the shades on our vintage chandy..Ahh some things never change haha, but hey it's real life right?! So, what do you guys think about this super simple fall table??

{ Cottage & Farmhouse Decor..What you should Buy at Flea Markets! }

Hey guys & welcome back to TQS!! I hope you all had a lovely weekend enjoying something fall-ish & doing something that made you happy! So a few days ago while running errands with my sister she spotted a Flea Market coming to one of our local parks/historical communities & of course we made plans to attend since these don't pop up around us very much! Well, today { Sunday } was the day & we threw some hats on, henleys & headed out to go pickin or junkin..It then dawned on me while visiting each booth, drinking the yummy lemonades & touring the historical homes that I've NEVER done a post on what to look for/ buy while out flea marketing etc.. For some people flea markets can be a bit overwhelming with all the goods & I can totally see why! I come from a long line of pickers, thrifters, DIY'ers & cottage goods, so why not share with you all some of the things I look for while "junkin". With the popularity of farmhouse & cottage decor at its peak it's time I share what to scope out & buy while marketing.. Come virtual junkin with me & read more below!!






There's something about the fall air that always has be loving junkin just that much more in the fall season..The crisp air, cozy drinks & of course you know my historical loving heart loves these homes hehe. This was just part of the market & food/ drink trucks etc.. I loves that the historical homes were open for touring as well..


Cottage & Farmhouse Finds to Look for:

  • Wood Crates
  • Glass Milk Bottles
  • Handmade Pillows
  • Dough Bowls
  •  Vintage Signs
  • Antique mini Clocks
  • Trunks
  • Milk Cans
  • Lanterns
  • Mason Jars
  • Windmills
  • Olive Buckets
  • Galvanized buckets/cans
  • Old Glass Window panes
  • Vintage Scales
  • Tobacco Baskets
  • Vintage Cabinets
  • Old Wood Stools
  • Wood Toolboxes
  • Feed Bags
  • Wood Barrels










What do you guys think about all these lovely vintage & antique goods being sold at the market this weekend? What do you like to look for while out pickin/junkin? I think my most favorite thing I spotted was this old plate cabinet from France!! I hope this was informative in some way..& as always HAPPY JUNKIN :) !!

Happy Monday!

{ Early Fall Cottage Style Porch }

Happy almost Wednesday y'all!! I can't believe that it's already almost the middle of the week...I'm not complaining because I'm so excited the temps are dropping to the low 60's & that means cider mills galore this weekend right haha?! So If you've been following the blog for sometime now you would know I always ease into fall with our "early styled" porch decor..This basically is me frantically grabbing stuff from our junkin treasure pile which I can't really say pile anymore as Markie organized & made our garage like a mini antique shop for me..Anwayssss see I'm already getting off track in this post because I'm so excited for fall you guys lol! Last Saturday I decided to pull some pumpkins out from the garage,an old chippy table & a cute vintage fishing seat..I always go with color outside & that's because I like the vibrant look of the pumpkins /fall decor against our neutral little brick cottage..Also because I used up all the neutral pumpkins inside for our fall mantel HERE & our dining room HERE. Come see this space I popped together in 20 minutes... 


Although we are in the suburbs for right now, I love that these tall wheat like grasses are outside our front door!! They make it SOO cozy for fall & they're great fillers! I started decorating this area while I was being ungrateful..You guys know we've been looking for a little semi city farm for 2.5 years with no luck..I got to thinking & thought how ungrateful my thoughts were when we have this adorable little brick cottage..I mean I say ALL the time I wish we could pick it up & move it haha #wishfulthinking. The moral of the story is though that I DO love this home & I should enjoy it instead of being mad we can't find another property right?!


I kept these vintage ammo boxes from our summer porches this year HERE & HERE just added some fall flowers, bright orange pumpkins & this cute little "Harvest Blessings" sign. I didn't spend one penny YET on this space, but don't hold your breath haha..Big changes coming & something I've never done for fall coming to the blog SOON! Can you guess what I'll be doing to this space hahaha..



**SEE LAST YEAR'S FALL PORCH: HERE





I think this is pretty comical..If you look very closely you'll see that all these of these pumpkins are different sizes & shades/ finishes of orange...Yes, they're all faux & bought at different times haha it adds the authenticity I'm trying to pass-off right??? :)



This emerald green { heavy } pot is from my grams & is super old..Something about it is so charming & rustic/fall-ish! What do you guys think about this space? Have you started decorating??

{ Dusty Farmhouse Style Fall Mantel }

Hey everyone & happy Friday!!! Whoa this weeks been a long for us..not that anything bad happened { knock on wood }, but it's just been super busy with work, life & everything in between! Latley we've been taking country car rides on Sundays to see future properties that might work for what we're looking for in a small farm & then getting Chinese takeout after..Last weekend was no exception & when we got home I got super inspired to decorate our upper level living room { lower level family room update coming soon } fireplace mantel with some simple dusty flowers & neutral pumpkins that I picked up at Michaels on sale for under $3 a piece! I've been really into simplifying spaces & also loving that "muted dusty look" if that's a thing even hahah! Of all the mantels I've styled I think this one was the more simple & you know what? I loveeee it!  Come take a closer peek down below..


I love these dusty neutral pumpkins from Michaels!! They are the perfect color & still give that cozy fall feeling without being dramatic orange or just boring white.. The larger white pumpkins are also from Michaels for $10 & I loved the light distressing on them for that cottagey/farmhouse look!




There are a few things I want to change about this space, like adding new  fall greenery instead of the topiaries, painting the wood crates & adding a vintage style sign etc..but for now I'm loving the quaintness!


The barn painting is a DIY I did one night when I was bored..I was going to blog it, but honestly I'm so artist { that's my BFA sister }. I tried to incorporate what she has taught me..not sure I nailed it haha. I love it on the mantel though.. It adds simple charm right?!
