Barn House 2012

Where does a girl even begin? Trying to find words to describe the beauty, serenity, and love surrounding a Pacific Northwest farm...After three years I've come to realize that maybe the magic cannot be captured with mere words. . A soul must experience it for themselves to fully understand, to feel the gentle touch of grace against your cheek as you step upon the lush soil. To smell the life of the pines and wildwood; the small whispers coming in almost inaudible sighs. You must {still} yourself, letting your heart guide you to a {meant to be} treasure.

There is truly nowhere else...there is simply...

You cannot believe the line!! It snaked it's way along the fence line and didn't end...

{Farm and Frills}

{Barn House} again.. :0)

I'm sorry, I'm not sure who's booth this was but the colors of pure nature where unbelievably stunning!

{Sparrow} love this girl with all my heart!!

So blessed to have finally met this girl and her husband!

{Camas Antiques}??? not sure....

The one item that just stopped me in my tracks...

yep, a calf bottle!! The kids just giggled over this...we still use ours and can't begin to tell you how much of a chore it is to mix these things up morning and night for the little dogie calves. :0)

Flying in for the show and not having the truck put a serious damper on my shopping...sigh. My mom had some serious faith that her vintage veggie bin would fit into her suitcase. I can't begin to tell you the sweat, blood and some not to appropriate words where shed to make it happen! ;0) It made it home safely and looks amazing upon her wall...definitely meant to be.

It was SO good to see my PNW family...I miss you all so much already! Thank you dear Joe and Jermonne for hosting such a beautiful event. I cannot begin to tell you the peace that this little trip brought to my soul, it was also very bittersweet. To be there with you all but to not be. It was definitely different being a shopper and not a vendor! :0)

I just want you two to know...You are truly heaven sent....

Creatively Made Home E-course Giveaway!!

With the changing of the seasons upon us I find myself turning {towards home}. It becomes time for me to leave the harvest fields earlier to prepare for my little family returning home. It is time to settle in and cozy up.

This will be the first season that our house is truly our home. I long for our remodel to be finished so our home reflects who we are; where you leave feeling the essence of our lives. While I am thrilled for opportunity of filling new negative space it is a little overwhelming. Where to begin, how much to add, and to how to create the perfect backdrop to our living.

You can imagine how blessed I felt to find Jeanne offering a new e-course:

Here is a little of the {why} Jeanne created such a unique e-course:

"I wanted to create a course that celebrated what really matters in your and your family. I also wanted to celebrate making life beautiful in the everyday. I know so many that want to make their home beautiful but feel overwhelmed and don't know where to they do nothing.
It is time to open your doors because of what is inside of you.....not what is inside your home.
It is our desire that this five week online course will change how you see yourself, your home and your family."

Jeanne is bringing together four of the most inspiring woman I know to help us see and live the beauty everyday. Tracey Leber, Sara Duckett, Kimberly Taylor and Jennifer Rizzo will all be sharing how they truly live joyful lives and how their homes are reflections of themselves.

This course will packed full of tips and suggestions for gardening, cooking, decorating and entertaining! I simply cannot wait!!

Jeanne puts SO much heart and soul into her courses, they really are life altering!
