~On the Porch~

It's already time for Farmhouse Friday again and this month's theme is Porches.  I think of mine as an extension of my home in the Summer.  Enjoy! xoxo K. 

This area to the right of the front door is where an old primitive cupboard and some white and rusty iron pieces hold many pots filled with flowers. 

I was late in planting all my pots this year so many of these will look better later in the season when they are filled in and have more blooms.

The rest of the porch is home to an iron set of two chairs and a bench where you can find me on most  warm evenings relaxing with a good book or magazine. 

This end has a bench filled with statuary a couple birdhouses my husband made me and more blooms along with this large galvanized box for extra storage.

I've had this girl statue for many years and she is my favorite with her great patina and sweet face♥

I hope you take some time to be inspired by all the other porches as well.

It's that time of Summer that I wait for all year long.....when my peonies are blooming!  They are the most beautiful and delicate blooms in the perfect shades of pink. They never last long enough and especially this year with the warmer weather we've been having, so I cut most of them to bring inside and added them around the house.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

One place they ended up is in my bathroom where I can enjoy them and their aroma.

I moved that ladder I had on this wall to the opposite side at the end of the clawfoot tub so I could add this wonderfully chippy board with hooks for hanging towels and bath necessities.  This Turkish towel was a Home Goods find. 

I'm still loving these open shelves especially with these beautiful blooms in an enamel pitcher sitting among many of my French finds.♥♥

As I get older I realize that the most precious things are worth waiting for....until next year!

Have a lovely weekend.

~The Farm Chicks Show 2015~

Another Farm Chicks Show has come and gone and as always it didn't disappoint.  I had a great show and came home with very few items you see in these photos. I want to thank Serena for letting me a part of such a wonderful event.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.  

I wish I had time to get photos of all the wonderful booth displays because everyone really outdid themselves, but I barely had time to take these ones of my space, so I'll let take a tour around♥

I want to thank everyone who bought from me and I enjoyed meeting some new people this year.  This show is a lot of work, but it pays off with all the helpful vendors and the many friendly shoppers.  Also, thanks to everyone who was so patient on Saturday when it was so crowded.  Hope to see you next year!

~Fresh Herbs in the Kitchen~

In Spring before we have our garden planted, I like to keep a few fresh herbs in the kitchen for easy access while cooking.  They will soon be taken outside to be added with many more different varieties to some raised beds.  Enjoy! xoxo K.

Thyme and basil are a couple favorites!

The sun is shining through these kitchen windows and is always a happy sight to wake up to in the morning.  Another thing I like to add to my windowsill this time of year is wheat grass for a pop of green in the kitchen.  I've recently seen a couple recipes where you can add it to smoothies which I'd like to try♥
