Spring Farmhouse Pillow Covers

Spring is almost here, so today I’m sharing my top picks for Spring farmhouse pillow covers to brighten up your home.

I am so done with winter at this time of year, but here in New Hampshire, it still lingers. In fact, we’re supposed to get a big snow storm tomorrow! Ugh. I’m so looking forward to warmer weather, sunshine, and being outside.

Even thought the weather outside is still freezing cold and snowy, I’m thinking Spring and adding some cheerful Spring touches to my home. I love changing my home decor with the seasons, and Spring is one of my favorites. Adding fresh, bright colors to the inside of my house in March keeps me sane at the end of a cold, gray New Hampshire winter!

One of my favorite ways to update my decor each season is changing up my throw pillows. I prefer throw pillow covers over throw pillows for a few reasons. They are easier to store and take up less space in the off-season, they are washable, and they are cheap!

All of the pillows below are super affordable, so you can freshen up your decor for Spring without breaking the bank. I love them all, but my favorite two are the blue bike and the bunny in glasses. So cute!

Farmhouse Wreath Printables

Hi friends! Today I’m sharing a new set of farmhouse wreath printables I made over our February vacation.

There are four sayings, each in a simple farmhouse wreath. I kept them black and white so they could go with any decor, or you could use a fun colored frame.

Farmhouse Pillow Covers

Happy Valentine’s Day friends!

My mother in law gave me an Amazon gift card for my birthday last month, and I’ve been browsing for a bit thinking about what I’m going to buy with it. I’ve been thinking about sprucing up our living room for a while now, so I thought some neutral farmhouse pillow covers were a good place to start!

Switching out your throw pillows is a great way to decorate for different seasons and holidays, but it’s also nice to have some neutral pillows that can be used any time of year. I’ve written about my love of throw pillow covers over throw pillows before, but I’ll say it again: throw pillow covers are so much better than throw pillows! They can be taken off and washed easily (hello, 3 year old twins over here!) and they take up almost no space when you’re storing them. Pillow covers are a no brainer, in my book!

I’m still brainstorming some ideas for the living room, and I hope to share my plan with you soon. Still, I’m sure some of these pillow covers will make their way into the new design. You’ll have to come back and see which ones I choose!

Since I’ve been browsing through Amazon’s stock of farmhouse pillow covers, I thought I’d share a roundup with you, my lovely readers. I found some really cute ones! I included some stripes, checks, polka dots, and some text designs, so I hope you find something you love. I love all the cute sayings, but nothing says farmhouse to me like the cute checkered patterns.

If you’re looking for some adorable farmhouse pillow covers that can be used all year long, look no further, I have the ultimate farmhouse pillow cover roundup for you!

Easy DIY Valentine’s Day Wreath

 

Make this easy DIY Valentine's Day felt wreath!

Valentine’s Day is coming in just a week and a half, so I put together this cute little rag wreath to hang above my hutch. It’s so easy (and cheap!) you could put it together during nap time!

Affiliate links are included for your convenience.  Read my full disclosure here.

Materials:

Easy DIY Valentine's Day felt rag wreath from Sweet Maple Lane.

Wreath form (I used this straw one, because I already had it, but a foam one would probably be easier)

Felt (I used 2 sheets of pink, 4 sheets of light pink, and 8 sheets of white)

Push pins

Scissors

Directions:

Cut the felt into squares or rectangles. You don’t have to be exact. I just cut each sheet in half, then in half again, and kept going until I had rectangles that were about one inch by two inches.

Fold each piece in half, then in half again, and place the pin through the folded corner and into the wreath form.

Keep putting the folded felt onto the wreath, alternating colors. I wasn’t careful about which direction the folded side was facing, so they were pointing in all directions.

Keep going until the wreath looks full, fluffing as you go.

That’s it!

I put the wreath above my hutch (I need to move the nail from my other wreath, that’s why it’s just leaning against the wall) and added some other Valentine’s Day decor to make it a little more festive. I painted a mason jar a dusty pink and put some faux baby’s breath in it, added the metal ‘love’ sign, and made this super easy burlap banner.

This method is super easy, super cheap, and easily customized with different fabrics or colors. I have another, more neutral wreath that I made with drop cloth scraps, that usually hangs above the hutch. See it here.

Rustic Neutral Farmhouse Kitchen Decor

The ultimate list of rustic neutral farmhouse kitchen decor!

Hi friends!

How was your long weekend? I always try to get stuff done and relax a little on the weekends, which is a lot easier when we have an extra day!

I had a super fun birthday surprise: my farmhouse bins and baskets post went crazy on Pinterest! I’ve gotten a lot of new folks here at my blog over the weekend, so if that’s you, welcome! Since that post was so popular (and fun to write!) I thought I’d do another farmhouse roundup.  This time I’m focusing on rustic farmhouse kitchen decor.

I have big dreams for my kitchen: white cabinets, dark counters, open shelving, new floors, rustic lighting, and of course, farmhouse style! I’m not quite ready to tackle any of these things at the moment, but virtual shopping for when it is done is a super fun way to get inspiration!

I’m excited to share my latest farmhouse roundup with you! I kept the accents neutral with a lot of white, metal, and wood.  Adding any of these pieces will instantly give your current kitchen some farmhouse style!

Some of my favorites are the ‘I drink coffee for your protection’ sign, the coffee + tea + sugar canisters, and the adorable printed tea towels.

Rustic Winter Hutch and FREE Winter Decor Idea!

Winter hutch decor and free winter decor ideas!

Hi friends! Today I’m sharing my newly decorated rustic winter hutch AND a free winter decor idea!

If you follow me on Instagram (you don’t? you should!) you saw my sparse and sad hutch last week after all the Christmas decorations came down.  I got sick of looking at it, so I shopped around my house and redecorated with a natural winter theme.

I also came up with a genius idea for FREE winter decor!  Ok, maybe it’s not genius, but I’m pretty proud of myself for thinking of it!

Here is how the hutch looked right after I cleared all the Christmas stuff away.

Winter hutch before

And here is how it looks now.

Winter hutch decor after

I just love how it came out.  Did you see my genius FREE decor idea? No? Look again at the greenery.

Winter hutch with greenery

Yep.  I chopped up my Christmas tree!  You may have seen on Instagram (have you followed me yet?) that my husband dragged our tree into the yard and left it there, stand and all. We have no neighbors, so no one can see it and think we’re wackos.  It’s been out there for a week and a half, and when I came home one day and saw it all twinkling in the sunlight and covered in snow, I had the idea to chop off its branches and use them to decorate my house. Ha!

I tried using kitchen scissors, but that didn’t really work, so I just broke off a bunch of branches.

Winter greenery from Christmas tree clippings

I put some in the white enamel pitchers, and a few sprigs in the ceramic pitcher.  Then I shopped around my house for other woodsy-green-brown items and arranged them on the shelves.  It reminds me of winter in the woods.  Which is good, because it’s winter, and we live in the woods!

Winter hutch decor ideas

Even my mail baskets tie in with the rustic winter theme! (Check out more cute farmhouse baskets here.)

I had some greenery leftover, so I tied it up with a tan and gold ribbon and hung it on the front door.

Rustic Farmhouse Baskets and Bins for Organizing

The ultimate list of rustic farmhouse baskets and bins, perfect for organizing every room in your house and adding a touch of farmhouse style to your decor.

I’m so excited to share these amazing rustic farmhouse baskets and bins with you!  They are perfect for organizing any room in your house AND will add a touch of farmhouse style to your decor.  And these roundups are so super fun to make, too!

There is just something about the new year that makes me want to ORGANIZE ALL THE THINGS. The new year gives me such a mental boost!  I feel like I have a fresh opportunity to do things better.  Streamline, organize, and kick 2017’s butt!!

As I’ve been organizing areas of my house this past week, I’ve noticed how much I use baskets, bins, and other containers to store items.  I use different sizes and materials in different areas of the house, but they really are useful in any room!

I use them in the kitchen:

  • to organize pantry items like granola bars, crackers, baking items, etc.
  • to store flour and sugar
  • on the counter for fruit
  • in the fridge for cheeses sticks and Baby Bell cheeses

I use them in the living room:

  • for throw blankets
  •  for toys
  • for kids’ books

I use them in our dining room hutch:

  • to organize mail
  • for kids’ art supplies
  • in drawers for pens, stamps, and other office supplies

I use them in the bathroom:

  • to store washcloths and towels
  • to organize toiletries and medicine
  • to organize jewelry, hair ties, and bobby pins

I use them in the bedrooms:

  • in the kids’ room for toys
  • in drawers for socks and underwear
  • in the closet for out of season items

Of course not all of the containers I use are farmhouse cute, but some of the baskets and bins below are definitely on my list!  My favorites are the wire and burlap baskets (#6), the galvanized metal pail trio (#20), and the farm animal bins (#21). I think the metal pail trio would be adorable on a desk for pens and pencils or in a kids’ space to organize crayons and art supplies.  I also love the chicken wire wall bins (#18).  They would be great in a mudroom for mittens and hats or even in the kitchen for fruit.

What are your favorites?  How do you use baskets and bins to organize in your home?

Winter Pillow Cover Roundup

Hi friends!

I hope you had a lovely Christmas, and if you have time off this week like me (#teacherperks), you’re probably cleaning up, organizing all your new stuff, and packing up all your Christmas decorations.

The period after Christmas has always been the hardest for me to decorate.  The house seems a little sad without all the cheerful red and green, and I’m severely lacking any winter decor to take it’s place.  I’ve been scouring Amazon looking for cute winter decor to brighten up these dark winter days, and I wanted to share some super cute pillow covers!

If you saw my fall or Christmas pillow cover roundup, you know that I prefer pillow covers over throw pillows.  They’re cheaper, easier to store, and easier to keep clean — just throw them in the wash!  You can buy the pillow inserts once, and then change out your covers all year to suit the season or your mood!

Below are my picks for winter pillow covers to decorate with after Christmas.  I was going for a cozy, neutral, icy vibe with the burlap and ice blue.
