A Little Farmhouse Touch

Today, has been that perfect spring day here on the coast. Hope you are having some of this wonderful weather too. I did help Mr.CC with a new flower bed today, but most of my time was spent sanding furniture outside. Before I headed outside, I changed up a few things in my kitchen. First thing I did, I got out some chalk and changed my chalkboard. I then added a few things that remind me of the popular farmhouse style. So, let's see what I came up with.
                                                  Blessings,
                                                     Linda

                                       Farmhouse style here at
                                              Coastal Charm.

                                    I am always inspired by MMS...
                                               how about you?

                               Nothing screams FARMHOUSE more
                                      than a bucket of fresh eggs!


                                   I finally removed this rooster from
                                   my beach condo...it just never felt
                                                    right there.

                                Mr. CC found this wonderful old
                                apple basket...he sure catches on
                                          quick to my style!

YOur wonderful farmhouse vignette would fit so well in my farmhouse kitchen. Delightful!!! Love all your great elements!

Sarah Adams said...

I am loving the farmhouse style! My house is a mixture of different styles all blending but my kitchen is definitely farmy/country. I grew up with both sets of grandparents living on big farms! I just can't get away from those summer days on the farm and grandmas country kitchen.

linda!!!!! hey girl!!! I was just thinking of you today! I miss blogging and reading blogs. I have kinda put it on the back burner by accident. So sad. I hope to get back at it here soon. Yard sale season is coming up and I'm going to be out hunting good junk down!!! Oh, let's not forget the flea markets!

I'm in love with your farmhouse style!! Mr. CC did real good finding that gorgeous basket! Love your chunky chalk board, too! I can't wait to put my kitchen back together. Getting ready to paint. I'm ready to farm style it up!

I made a rooster wreath today. I should post it on my blog. That's kinda interesting.

You take care and I love ya!

As if one could single out a single item to "ohhh" and "ahhh" over but I did. The apple basket! I so love that! It looks so sturdy and the dark stain really is a fabulous contrast to a mostly white decor. Such a lovely piece of history to grace your home!

Emily said...

I love your farmhouse theme! Especially that rooster. Old milk bottles are a big favorite of mine, I don't care if they go with my d├ęcor or not!

Lovin your blog.

Everything is lovely, but the apple basket is the best.

My husband is a great guy and after 42 years of marriage, I am certainly going to keep him. But, I sure wish he would bring home great finds for me.

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

What a beautiful frame on your chalkboard, and I love what you wrote on it. You've created a perfect farmhouse vignette with all your treasures. Love that apple basket and the rooster is perfect on top of the old spool.
