FARMHOUSE TOUR ~ An Inspired Nest

 

gorgeous farmhouse style bedroom:

I love Farmhouses and am always on the lookout for home tours and DIY projects.  I love white and gray so it’s no surprise that I fell in love with this bedroom.

Of course, I had to find the website that this bedroom belonged to and that is how I discovered The Inspired Nest. I know after you see the pictures below that you will want to hop on over and check out her site.

At the end of the day all that matters is love and memories. So make sure you give it and make sure you make some. - Trent Shelton It dawned on me this morning that Halloween is next week. How did it arrive so fast?! I feel like summer just ended... suddenly the days seem like they are zipping by and I simply can't keep up. I'm sitting here writing this and wondering if I've been present enough in my life lately. The answer is no. The truth is I've been focused too much on what is happening tomorrow or next month or even next year rather than soaking in the moment I am in. I'm making a promise commitment to myself and my family to slow down. To take a breath. To enjoy the precious moments. To savor the time we spend around this kitchen island. To live for now. Wishing you a day filled with memories and love friends! #aninspirednest #mykitchen:

 

 

 

Cashews & Poison Ivy and what they have in common.

 

I think somewhere in my life, I have read about how we get cashews.  The thing that puzzles me is why I didn’t remember this information.  Seriously, this weird nut grows on the bottom of a “cashew apple.”  How can you forget something so bizarre?

The apple portion is actually an accessory fruit and the nut hangs beneath the apple. Even weirder, the nut isn’t actually a nut in a botanical sense, it’s actually a seed.

The red and yellow apples can be eaten but they are very delicate and do not ship well. They are made into juices, jams and liqueur.

I love this house!  I’m especially in love with the little boy’s bedroom since I have a young grandson.

She also has some great DIY projects for the home that you won’t want to miss.

Spring Flowers from the Yard


 

Spring is here and the first flowers have come and gone.  Now the second round of flowers are blooming including these roses in the rose garden.

RED & TURQUOISE ♥ FOR YOUR KITCHEN

I love turquoise and red!  I have loved these color combinations as far back as I can remember.  Maybe because it reminds me of my grandmothers and my younger days when life was simple and carefree.

Clicking on the photos below will carry you to the source of the photo.

This kitchen combines two of our favorite colors: yellow and turquoise. #kitchendecor by cindyleewood1
