A few weeks ago Charles and I visited the State Farmer’s Market in Raleigh. My goal was to find some pumpkins, gourds and mums for our outdoor fall décor. We had lunch at the Farmer’s Market restaurant and after eating a delicious meal we made our way to the market area. As soon as I walked into the market my attention was drawn to these beautiful magnolia wreaths and bunches.
Welcome Wednesday! The halfway point in our work week. I have been off schedule over the past two weeks with posting the Why I Love It Wednesday series. I traveled to West Virginia for a funeral two weeks ago and had my family in town for a short visit that same weekend. Although I love blogging and sharing inspiration and encouragement with you, my family is first.
Hi Everyone! We hope that you had a great start to a new week. Over the past weekend, Charles and I traveled to Washington, NC or Little Washington as it is know around here. Charles had visited there many years ago growing up in eastern part of North Carolina. I, on the other hand, had never been. Washington is a small historic town located on the Pamlico River. Well, anytime there is water around I am all set to go. Charles and I both want to visit more local towns. Many small towns in this area are rich in NC history and full of character and charm.
I shared earlier in the week our outdoor space transformation. Overall, the entire project cost about $500 with the majority of the cost going towards the stone. Considering, the amount of work that needed to be done, we didn’t think that was a lot of money. I had mentioned that Charles and I had not used this space in over 2 years. We were really too busy with life to enjoy the space. In addition to being busy, it was hard for us to sit and relax in the space when it needed so much work.
Good Evening! This will be a short post about our outdoor updates. I will let the before and after pictures do the talking. This is our fire pit area that is behind our house. We have spent the past several weekends updating this space with fresh paint, mulch, stone and the addition of the panels. I am sad to say that we have not used this area in 2 years. However, when you see the before pic you will understand why. I will share more details in a later post on how we got to the after. But for now, enjoy the before and after transformation.
Happy Friday! Today I am co-hosting the Faith and Fellowship Blog Hop. I am very passionate about my faith and understand the importance of encouraging one another. The Faith and Fellowship Blog Hop is a wonderful opportunity to meet new bloggers and find encouragement through their faith and their stories. Please link up your post below and visit a few blogs while you are here. I hope that you leave inspired and encouraged. Have a blessed day.
Happy Tuesday! Sunday night I made my very first pillow. I have wanted to learn to sew for quite a while and have been hoarding fabric for our home in the mean time. To me, learning to sew would provide me with endless possibilities for our home. Pillows, curtains, table runners, and so much more can be made with fabric and thread.
Good morning! As I have been shopping around lately and I am seeing more and more copper showing up in home decor. Copper is not a metallic that I would normally use in my home. I tend to like the look of copper when it has some age and patina on it. The orange color of copper does work well with the colors of fall and can easily be added to your fall decor. I have curated a collection of copper elements that would look great in any home despite the season while adding another metallic to the mix.
Happy Wednesday! It has been a rainy, wet, and cold day here in North Carolina. This is the kind of weather that makes me want to put my PJ's on as soon as I get home and I just might do that. Today is our second post in our Why I Love IT Wednesday series. This week I have seen more and more fall tours with a few of them that featured outdoor decor. After seeing all the pumpkins, mums and wreaths, I was inspired to feature URNS. Aren't they a great!!! Here are a few reasons why I love them.
Charles and I visited the Farmer's Market yesterday after church. We had lunch at the Farmer's Market restaurant. OH. MY. WORD. It was delicious. This was our first time eating there and we will definitely go back again. We wandered around look at all the fresh veggies, pumpkins and mums. It was beautiful to see all of the colors of fall.
