P.S. I’m totally planning on winning the $500 spree as outlined here.  I’ve been shopping in my dreams already!


  1. I would LOVE to come to a garden party that you host!! What beautiful pictures, I really love the farmhouse table and chairs, maybe that's because I have the same exact ones in my kitchen:)Martina

  2. I'm SO there! My current home has hardly any yard so I'm constantly daydreaming about these landscapes.

  3. Such great inspiration! I will be sure to check here when I start decorating my apartment!
