19+ Kitchen Lighting Inspirations!

What's one room in your house that you and your family spend the most time in? Ours is the kitchen! We have a eat-in kitchen and it's pretty much the center of our house, so we're walking through it often. When we entertain or host family gathering's, the kitchen is the main hang out spot. With that being said, having some fabulous lighting is a must

I've partnered up with Hometalk to curate an inspiration board where you can clip, like and share all your favorite ideas for new kitchen lighting in your home! There are so many fantastic DIY options that won't break the bank! I think you're really going to be inspired these!!


What I love about the majority of these lights is the creativity used by repurposing old items! When it comes to kitchen lighting, what are some of your must-haves? For me, I want something that goes with the rest of my decor, but stands out and has a lot of character!

Thank you for stopping by today and please be sure to visit my Hometalk board by clicking directly on the photo, to gather and share your inspiration!

Autumn on the Porch

I love decorating my front porch to go with the seasons. Not only that, but I love pulling up to the house and seeing it in all of it's glory! I was so eager to begin decorating for Fall this year, so I wasted no time!


I had bought a floral wall pocket from Hobby Lobby. I knew immediately that I was going to spray paint it white since my front door was black. So, I did just that.. I spray painted it a flat white, giving it a good two coats. Once it was dry, I grabbed a low grit sand paper and began to rough it up throughout the piece. This gave it some depth and would likely blend in with the natural weathering it will get being on my porch. I had also bought some decorative wheat and potpourri arrangement at Marshall's. I combined the two arrangements and made it my own! It smells heavenly, and I'm hoping that scent will last a little while even though it's outside. I made a simple burlap bow using some burlap ribbon I already had and hot glued a clip onto the back. I love putting clips on my bows because I can easily remove them if needed, or move them to another spot of the arrangement if I want. 

I'm pretty happy with how this piece turned out! It's full, screams Fall and looks great on my door! So what do you think of it?

Fab Pins of the Week

Hello beautiful! How has your week been? I am so happy to have you here, and hope you stick around for a while! This week I'm sharing my love for "tufting". If you follow me on Instagram, you know I purchased an antique couch and have given tufting a-go! It gives instant glamour to any piece of furniture and is such a timeless design. With that being said, prepare to be inspired!!

Falling In Love ♥

Although Fall doesn't officially start until the 22nd of this month, I am in complete Fall mode! It is my favorite time of the year! I am absolutely in love with all of the the rich colors, warm tones and fragrant scents, just to name a few! I'm sure you know by now, I'm crazy for banners! So today, I'm sharing this year's version of my Fall banner!


To start, grab a book that you will never use, or snag one from Goodwill. I chose the phrase "fall in love" for this banner, so I ripped out 9 pages from the book. Before I cut the pages to size, I printed each letter onto them and moved onto the next step. I grabbed my paper cutter and simply trimmed off the sides of each and fishtailed the bottoms by eye. I use jute for the base of my banner and usually, also, eye the length according to the size of the letters. Simply fold the top of each page over and place a piece of double stick tape to the back and press into place. Hang your banner and voila! Such a timeless piece with a statement!

Fab Pins of the Week

Hello lovely and welcome! It's such a pleasure to have you here! Since we had Monday off for Labor Day, I feel like the week went by pretty quickly! Very happy it's the weekend though, yippee!!

At times I try to stray from it, but my love for whites and neutrals over powers all else. I say I try to stray away at times, because I will see inspiring pictures with bright colors and fun patterns and think "I'm going to do that"! But, at the end of the day, I find myself completely mesmerized by french rustic glamour and neutral tones! Here's what I fell in love with this week...
