~Signs of Spring~

It was rainy here today…but I heard signs of Spring outside my window.


The bird’s were singing…


and my purple crocuses are peaking out of the ground in the front flower beds.


I saw a bunny rabbit or two in our backyard…


and a bird or two looking for a place to make their nest.


Yes…there were definitely signs of Spring at my house today.

Blessings from me to you….      ~Cindy


~More Farmhouse Touches~

Since it has been so cold with wind chills below zero…I’ve been staying home and doing some rearranging in the living room and adding some more farmhouse touches in there.

Old oil can…old tin scoop…and a little mason jar with tiny white flowers.


Added some berries in an old basket on a shelf with my Ohio sign. Can’t decide if the birds are staying there or not.


Also got some new lamps to give me the look I’m wanting…and this one just says Farmhouse to me.


These next two lamps came from Pottery Barn…one on either side of our sofa. Decorated this side with a small dress form, a pear made out of twine, and a spool of thread. One side more feminine…


And decorated this side with vintage binoculars, an old glass piece, a candle warmer and our weather monitor. One side more masculine…


We are planning on getting a new sofa in the Spring…can’t wait to see what is out there that will give me more of a farmhouse style with the sofa.

Until next time…..         Blessings from me to you, ~Cindy


~A Few Changes~

I’ve been wanting more of a farmhouse style to my home. So I did a little change on this wall in my living room…


Took out the two floral pitchers in the photo above and replace them with white pitchers. They look much better and I also put softer colored little heart pillows in the candle box with the white bird…but not sure if it is staying like that.


I’ve been going thru things and trying to decide what I really want to keep and what to let go of. I took a huge bag and a box full of stuff to the Goodwill…and I’m sure that more will be going there soon.

I’ll have lots of time to do some redecorating this weekend. We got a little snow yesterday…but the big storm is heading our way for Sunday into Monday with 4 to 7 inches of snow and some areas might get even more than that.

I’ll be back soon to share more changes as I work on getting the farmhouse style that I want in my home.


Until next time….

~A Love For Blue Ball Mason Jars~

Thought I would share with you today my love of Blue Ball Mason jars that I have displayed in my home.


I have some displayed in my kitchen on the counters…

K-3 (3)

Yep…the little lights are tiny mason jars.


Also…have a sign in my kitchen with blue mason jars that light up. I love how it looks lite up at night.


Now…we are off to the dining room. I have a mason jar chandelier that I got from Lowes. It came with clear mason jars…

D-1 (2)

…and I changed them out for blue mason jars.


Also have a small blue mason jar on a shelf in the dining room.


Now…we are into the living room and I have another small blue mason jar picture that lights up.


Also have a little mason jar with a spool of lace inside of it…out on display.


Then across the living room on our corner fireplace…I have a mason jar with an old rusty funnel on it and a tiny mason jar with little white flowers in it.


And lastly…you might remember that I made mason jar necklaces to sell at my shows.


They were a hit and I still have a few left over for this year’s shows.


Hope you enjoyed seeing my collection of Blue Ball Mason jars.

Until next time……

~Been Mostly Staying At Home~

Winter is here for sure…we got 6 inches of snow last week.


We took a quick trip up to my in-laws this past Sunday, since the roads were finally cleared of the snow and before the freezing rain came in.

The snow was great for the skiers at Mad River Mountain…even thou the wind chill was -25 degrees…we could see some skiers coming down the mountain!!


This was our back yard one night with the moon peaking thru the trees and all the snow on the ground.


Since all the snow and freezing rain made me stay at home…I did a little jewelry making and I love my new bracelet.


Working on a few other things that I will share on my next post.

Until next time…..

~Christmas Vignettes~


We woke up this morning to a little snow on the ground…


…which makes is seem a little more like Christmas time.


It was a good morning to look at some Christmas magazines and catalogs.


The light was so bright this morning coming thru the front window that the lace curtains were not showing up in the pictures that I took.


All the gifts are wrapped and under the tree…since I took this picture of the tree. The small picket fence is to keep the Yorkie pups from getting under the Christmas tree and to the gifts.


Here’s a peek of our corner fireplace…I love how the Christmas tree lights are showing up in the old glass window.


And a peek at a the little snowman and a snow-angel that is nestled in beside the Christmas tree.


This month has gone fast…hard to believe that there is only 7 days until Christmas Eve. Wishing all of you a great week.

Christmas Blessings from me to you…       ~Cindy
