Happy Friday! I am so happy the weekend is here… I am tired! With daylight savings starting and changing my eating (I started Whole 30 this week), I am tapped out. Today I have a date with my guest room wall… it’s gonna go to the dark side. Yeah baby. Then the rest of the weekend, can you believe I don’t have any major plans! Just wine with my neighbor and a friend, and flea market! I am sure I will find some things to get into though. And maybe we will build a fire and cozy up one night- that sounds lovely! Charlie loves to sit near the fire. 😉
Anyhow, it’s insta-Friday, so time to share all of my instashennanigrams from the week! (You can find me at cassie8978).
Last week I bought a little red velvet settee from a lady at a storage unit… I got there and she also had these goodies which I took home!
I did a little Thanksgiving decorating and purchased this teeny little milk bottle from a local shop- how cute!
I started participating in the Joy Filled Home Challenge with Michaela and this image was “something in your home that means the most to you besides the people in it”. My kids art:
Now that the mornings are a little lighter after setting clocks back, I was able to enjoy this view from my porch at 6:20 am as I headed out for a walk.
And Jake and I have been loving he cool mornings and beautiful surroundings.
I picked up a swanky vintage couch for the barn…. In my small Ford escape. He he.
I missed my friend, so I hung a wreath she made me so I could think of her.
I used some West Elm dollars to randomly order a clearance shower curtain for upstairs. You had to spend 75 to get 25 off. I needed bowls that totaled $50, so clearly, I needed to add on some “fun” items.
I brought the foliage inside…
A little while ago I won a giveaway through Restoration House for an awesome wooden reclaimed arrow from The Charming Farmer. Well, Meagan from the Charming Farmer happened to be in my neck of the woods and made a personal delivery! We chatted for a while while Sawyer played and Charlie peed on the floor. Good times. 😉 She is adorable and funny and sweet!!!!
And here is my AMAZING arrow. I am still deciding where I want to hang it.
Antlers and hot glue one night…. I made an antler wreath and hung over my bed!
I finished up this table….
I went for another walk and this is always one of my favorite places in the Fall….
Sarah and I worked on setting up an “Earthy Bohemian Christmas” at Sweet Clover’s cottage. See where that swanky couch went?
Sarah and I often have the same thoughts and finish each other’s sentences. (You can even read her post about it here). We also show up matching. Sisters from another mother.
Because I am doing Whole 30 and eating clean and healthy, I am eating more squash and sweet potatoes than normal. I was baking my spaghetti squash last night when I heard a crash. My pyrex pan exploded! And dinner was ruined. 🙁 And yes, that is the price tag on there, but I wasn’t going to eat the skin!
Chris stopped to pick up a new pan on the way home, and I cleaned the oven. Now we have a shiny oven and a new pan! Let the good times roll! I will laugh in the face of exploded pyrex and eat my squash!
Off to paint…. I hope to have some progress to share next week. Have a wonderful weekend! Oh, and you may have noticed I have been pinning my bangs back…. trying to decide if I should recut them or grow them out. Discuss amongst yourselves and let me know.
