one of my favorite finds has been this old trunk. i use it to stow guest linens in and place my beachy collections on top of.

the very beginnings of my sewing nook- the rest of it has a long way to go still. ;)

  • WOW I LOVE all these photos and your house is beautiful! it look so fresh and clean. Seems like a very relaxing place! LOVE IT!!!!!

  • oh so beautiful!

  • You have a beautiful start! I’m so jealous of your sunshine and flowers! Can’t wait to see more!

  • gorgeous bonnie!
    in your sewing nook there is a curtainish piece of fabric hanging on the wall…what exactly is it? it’s so lovely!

    • hey jes! thank you, love! yes, we have a couple of unsightly heaters that stick out of the walls so i hung panels on both sides to cover them up. i’m not sure why i can’t find the specific ones, but they are from ikea and i layered it over a straw panel. here’s the same one in a different print: :)

  • Beautiful! I so enjoy seeing how you put things together. It makes me see random things in my world in a whole new light! Thanks for sharing.
