We live in an old farmhouse, and are lucky that the home has not been subject to countless renovations. The original family that owned this home, was a frugal farm family.
Farmhouse style is comfortable and does not have to cost a small fortune to acheive. The braided rug is an old rejected and forgotten treasure from my attic.
The shelf is an old board from the shed. The milk glass was picked up at yard sales. The old cruet now holds bath oil. The petunias are volunteers that were growing in the back yard. Petunias are a fragrant flower, and are often found in the yards of older homes, volunteering their fragrance and beauty to anyone willing to stop and smell, and admire their beauty..
The birds are yard sale finds as well.
An old enamel pan olds extra rolls of this bathroom neccesity.
Farmhouse style recycles things that once had a different purpose than the current purpose.
The lace shower curtain is another yard sale find.
My so called treasures are a mixture of odd things.
This old shelf has served several purposes. I don't know what the original purpose was, but it now holds towels and other bathroom items.
My style breaks the rules, an old aluminum bowl holds wash cloths. An old perfume tray now holds cotton ball, q-tips and other decorative items.
My style is imperfect by some standards, but perfectly comfortable to us.
My style is affordable too, creativity is the most important ingredient used.
Petunias remind me of my childhood. When I smelled these flowers, the petals covered my nose, and I giggled. As an adult, they still make me smile!
