Thistlewood Farm

1.21.2012

 Good morning. I hope you have your cup of coffee or tea or whatever else you start the day with because I just have to share this wonderful blog with you. I discovered it a few weeks ago while blog hopping. After picking my lower lip up off my keyboard I just had to keep going back through each of her posts. Karianne is living my dream. She is living in an old farm house that they have lovingly restored. I would love to live in an old farm house, but that isn't going to happen so I will live vicariously through her.

 Just look at her kitchen!

Her home is filled with beautiful painted furniture such as this hutch.

Love this red armoire. This is in her boys' area upstairs.

Shoot, this space is cute enough for adults, too. Love these chairs.

Her twin girls' room.

LOVE the living room. This was taken with her Christmas decorations up.

Cute colorful craft room.

There are lots of wonderful Christmas decor pictures because she just started this blog in December.

Don't you just love the warmth of this room?


There is so much more. I hope you will go over and visit Karianne at Thistlewood Farm
Take a minute to read her "about" page. I love what she wrote about the farm.

 I hope you will leave a comment at her blog that you came by. Her comments are at the top of the post.

Thanks, Karianne, for allowing me to share your blog and home.


Last day to get in on my giveaway here.

  31. Karianne has a lovely home and great sense of style. I am sure that the renovations were mega. A dear friend's sister just moved into an 1860 farmhouse, and well, let's just say it needs "work", so far they have been picking up after animals that have taken up home on their property from a neighbor's farm and digging their car out of mud......otherwise they are enjoying it, I guess! xo

  34. Kim,

    I am one of Kari's biggest fans! But you forgot to mention her AMAZING sense of humor! How you must read each and every word ... because they are crafted so beautifully.

    I like to say she's a 12-letter-deserving "laugh out loud" blog ...

    So glad you've shared my blog BFF here!

  47. Hi Kim,
    What a lovely home Karianne has and it is so beautiful. I love her kitchen & her pantry. I have been following her and each room reveal is beautiful! Leila looked right at home in the new made over sun room. Just so cute she uses that little stool at the table...

    All the Best,

  61. She has been a favorite since way back when she and her cute sis, Kijsa (is that spelled right?) had their adorable blog and etsy shop...I have a pillow and a tea towel with their art...oh, and a beutiful napkin holder from their shop...I well remember when Kari bought this beautiful house. I fell in love with it and watched as she did her magic....:)
