The Current French Farmhouse Style Sun Room


Today I'm sharing the current French farmhouse style sun room since I have made a few changes.
The first change is a new matching leather chair that I purchased when it went on sale a few weeks ago. I bought the other one two years ago when it went on special for one day only at fifty percent off and I was hoping that would happen again, but it never has. I bought the second one at twenty five percent off so still a pretty good deal. Now I just need to wait for the sun to fade it a bit and for it to get some wear to it so it doesn't look so new. I didn't realize how much the first chair had faded over time, but I prefer that look. You can see the old chair in this post. It was a very cheap and extremely uncomfortable chair, but looked good. 

Favorite Things Friday.... herbier pressed botanicals


I love gallery walls, but I especially love a wall full of herbier pressed botanicals. I have seen the prices for them all over the place and I just keep on looking until I find just the right ones and at the right price. I love the thrill of the hunt. 
Below are some examples I found.

How I Am Sticking to My Goals


The first week of January I posted about my plans to take better care of myself this year and you can read that post here. I guess you could call it a resolution even though I just needed to make some changes in my life and I can say I have been sticking with my plan and I'm feeling so much better. Less stress and s l o w l y trimming down. I don't weigh myself, but go by how my clothes are fitting.

Today I thought I would share how I am sticking to my goals.

One of the first changes I had to make was eating out less, but I am not one who likes to stand over a hot stove. I bought an 8 quart Instant Pot on sale at Williams Sonoma when they had a one day sale on it. My daughter was with me and she said to get a bigger one so I did. Now, I may get a small one, too for smaller dishes and sides.

Favorite Things Friday.....Antiquing


While we have been enjoying a few days of spring like weather I was itching to do some antiquing and shopping. I texted my sister to see if she wanted to go and she did. It's always more fun going with someone else. We went to a cute shop in Roswell outside Atlanta where I didn't buy anything nor did I take pictures. Then we walked down the street since it was so nice out and stopped in Historic Roswell Antiques and Interiors. I have only been to this shop one other time several years ago, but I am going to go back soon.
Today I'm sharing some phone shots I took of some things I liked.

This was a booth filled with several things I like....bench, mirrors, sign, chandeliers, sconces, etc.

The Winter Farmhouse Style Bedroom


I hope y'all had a glorious weekend. We had spring temps that will continue this week. I'm sure those who came for the Super Bowl loved our weather. It's always a hit or miss this time of year and of course it will get cold again soon. This is just a spring teaser. 
Before spring does arrive I figured I'll show you how the farmhouse style bedroom has looked since the Christmas decor was put away. 

Can y'all believe it's already February?
