Ever So Thankful

It has been much too long since my last post.
And with Thanksgiving right around the corner, I thought I would write a quick little post to offer you all a thanksgiving printable!

I printed mine out on card stock and put it in a pretty frame behind some glass.  Everyday I write on the glass with a dry erase marker what I am thankful for that day. Not only is it a wonderful reminder, but it adds a little bit of festive flair to my home!

You Are My Sunshine

Hey guess what?

There’s a new collection available in my shop.

8×10 Print

4×5.5″ Greeting Card

Basically, I wanted to have a yellow print in my kitchen and then I decided it’d make a great card too.
So there you have it – inspiring right?

But the reason I wanted a yellow print is
1) I’ve always wanted a yellow kitchen and it’s lacking some yellow,
and 2) I just created the Burlap Bulletin Board I mentioned here.
It’s hanging above our kitchen table right now, and is a little bare at the moment but I’m hoping to pin up some more yellow stuff to bring in the color, and also hopefully some cute seasonal stuff. (That’s why I have a picture of my husband and I and our last jack-o-lantern).
I’m quite happy with it, I’m not gonna lie. I just need to add stuff to it. If anyone has any ideas on what I could add, please  leave a comment & let me know!

(please excuse my bad iPhone photography)

I’m in the process of decorating our kitchen. It’s a slow process, I try to add things here and there when I can. But I would just really love to have the yellow kitchen I’ve always dreamed of – I just love the sunshine-y look of them. But so far, here are a few little touches I’ve added to our little apartment kitchen.

A dry-erase message board. I drew a cute little breakfast drawing this morning which my husband decided to turn into a modern day telling of Shadrack, Meshack, and Abendigo (the spelling of which I probably just butchered).

My Anthro zinc letter knock offs hanging above the sink

A couple yellow spatulas to add a pop of color. (I also love my bird can opener, Antrho milk jug measuring cups, and “made with love” heart wooden spoon)

More pops of yellow appear around the kitchen in my dishes. (canisters are from Williams and Sonoma)

Someday, it will be some much more grande. In the meantime, here are some yellow kitchens that I love:

So lovely…

What do you all think? Do you also dream of a sweet yellow kitchen? Or what does your dream kitchen look like?

Autumn Inspirations

I absolutely love fall.
You just need to know that about me. I just think its so wonderful. I love the trees changing colors. I love the weather. I love the clothes – scarves, boots, sweaters, all of it. And to top it off, my birthday is in October. It’s just great.
And since fall is quickly approaching, I have felt extra inspired lately and just thought I would share with you a couple of the things I’m hoping to make or acquire this season.
