Ikea Ranarp Lamps in the Guest Room

When I shared the farmhouse style guest room Decorated For Christmas did you notice anything new? I had just bought a pair of lamps from Ikea. I think they have more of the farmhouse look than the others I was using.


French Country Styled Shelves

Can you believe it is the last Sunday of January already? That means it's time for another addition of our monthly French Country Style series. This month it's all about bookshelves.

One thing that I do not like to do and have the hardest time with is styling the bookcases in the great room. They have been styled many different ways over the nineteen years of living here. Since my main style is French Country I will show you what I have on my shelves for this style.


Adding Farmhouse Style in the Kitchen

Years ago if you told me that I would become a fan of farmhouse style I would have looked at you as if you had two heads. I went through a country decorating phase in the early years of our marriage, but then I became mainly a traditional style gal. Now I love things that look like they came from an old farm with the wide planked floors and a squeaking screen door. Of course I love French style, too so a mix of both is perfect to me.


French Country Style Mantel

I didn't purposely set out to create a French Country styled mantel it just sort of happened and it came together over time.


Wow Us Wednesdays #205

Welcome to Wow! I hope your week is going well. Not to rub it in any of my friend's faces who are living with cold and snow, but our weather has been quite spring like for the last few days. Don't worry we have cold rain coming back the end of the week.

In the last week I shared:

Lots of inspiration last week and here are a few features.

I love when someone uses an old item in a new way like this wash tub turned kitchen island by Magazine Your Home.


One Thing Leads to Another

I am thrilled to say the garage doors are finished! After three coats of the Devonshire Green and one coat of white they are shiny and new again.


The Powder Room Makeover

On January 23, 2012 I revealed the new Powder Room. Seems I like to start painting like a crazy person in January. I had also painted the Sun Room at the same time that year. Sure am glad I keep updating it because the way it looked then is not me at all now. Change is good. This year I'm blaming the gray, cloudy and cold weather for staying in and painting.



How is your weekend going? We are finally having beautiful sunny weather and I was finally able to get outside to paint the garage doors and the front door. I'm not through yet, but hopefully I will finish today. Here are some progress shots.


Ten Minute Decorating

I'm thrilled to be a part of a new series called 10 Minute Decorating where four of us will show you some simple decorating ideas that can be done in ten minutes or less. We will be sharing with you once a month.


Wow Us Wednesdays #204

Welcome to Wow Us Wednesdays where you can share your projects, crafts, recipes, room reveals and more. I hope your week is going well. Mine will be much better when all this gray gloomy weather moves out so I can finish my first major project.

Soups On and Shutters Are Too

There was lots of inspiration last week and here are a few features.

A play room was transformed into this art room by Art Is Beauty. You must see the before and how that faux brick wall was created.


Soup's On and Shutters Are Too

Happy Tuesday. I hope your week is off to a good start. I want to just share a couple of things from the weekend. 

I made a big pot of this White Chicken Chili that I found on pinterest. This is so darn good and so good for you. We love beef chili, too, but we actually prefer this one. I didn't think Mr. Savvy would like this one as much as the beef chili, but he loves this. This is full of veggies like zucchini, muchrooms, chiles, tomatoes and of course beans. You can find the recipe here.
