Week End Treasure Hunt

I normally share the treasures I found over the week end on the kitchen island where the lighting is so good to take my photo;s .......but today  I am taking  it outside!     The lighting outside  is perfect for getting great photo's and plus......the treasures are all rusty and crusty and I didn't want them on the kitchen counter.

It's All in the Details and the Tweeking

I have been posting some changes I made in the family room over the last few days......and now I want to share the details and tweeking I did later. 
   I nearly always see changes I want to make in the room when I'm editing the photo's  and writing up the post..    I usually don't take time to photograph the changes,   but I had some extra time today and thought it would be fun to show you what I changed.

Decorating with Tobacco Baskets

I took advantage of Hobby Lobby's 80% sale on all the remaining spring and summer decor to pick up some tobacco baskets.

Farmhouse Style Vignette

When I changed the fireplace mantel in the family room last week,    I just moved everything that was on it to the top of the piano. 
    The last time I decorated the piano was for Valentines.      When I put the Valentine decor away,     I did a very simple vignette on the piano top       There was plenty of room to stash my fireplace decor there until I had a chance to put it away.     Do you every just  set decor "somewhere" until you get a chance to put it away?
