Printables Party!

I hope you all had a very Happy Thanksgiving!
 Our family traveled to beautiful Lake Geneva WI for a few days.
 We had a lovely time and we truly have a lot to be thankful for!

 I hope to have a little Christmas decorating completed by the end of this week to show you, in the meantime I wanted to let you know about a printables party my friend Kristen is having.

There's going to be free printables, giveaways, and linky.

Rustic Farmhouse

I am working really hard to finish up the long over due makeover on my cane back chairs.
 I hope to be able to show them to you next week.
 So in the meantime, please enjoy a tour of this charming rustic farmhouse.
I think the giant blackboards framed in barn wood are so cool!

They only show a bit, but I am loving the rug in this picture!

It is starting to get cold here in Illinois and a wood burning stove sure would be cozy.
We had a wood burning stove in my home when I was growing up and I loved it.

The bed is a little spartan for my taste, but the twiggy lamp is great.
The walls and floors are wonderful too.

A nice little nook for blogging. :)

A wee bit of Christmas.
I couldn't wait any longer!
I've already started listening to Christmas music. Have you?

A Very Neutral Home

This home from Renovation Style magazine is void of color and I love it!
I find the neutral palette very peaceful and lovely.
All the wonderful texture from stone, tile, woodwork, and fabrics keeps things interesting.
But if I actually lived in this house I have a feeling color would start showing up in the rooms little by little.
What about you?
Would you leave this home as is or would you need to add some color?

For you.....

A little something I whipped up on picnik from a photo I took last fall.
Feel free to take it, print it, pin it, share it.
