Country Sampler, Let the Nesting Begin!

Good morning blogging friends! Can I just say that just when the sun was shining again we got a big of bad news yesterday with the groundhog Phil.  Why oh why?? Anyway, I'm staying inside with the thought of spring weather to come and enjoying my time at home while I still can.  We are supposed to get another 3-6 inches Friday. Here's what I've been reading:

 I love the first house the article is titled SunnySide Up .   I love the way Dee combines the primitive look in her home with so much light and cheerfulness.  She has some great pieces with original paint and I love the yellow ware bowl collection.  I love how she uses the yellow, red and blue colors here.  I guess your art teacher was right primary colors are very cool.

Look at that kitchen! I love the butcher block with the rabbit molds and that old grocery store sign.

Another house I just loved was Michelle's house she does a great job of weaving natural elements that give a lighter feel to her home, very welcoming and cozy.  Can I tell you I just love her kitchen?  I love the white cabinets with those handles and the tin backsplash with black accents.  That island is so cool too.  My DH has been trying to convince me when we redo the kitchen we should add the element shown hear with the glass fronts for beans, or seeds. Very neat indeed!

Sorry, this is sideways I couldn't get this to cooperate at all! Try here instead.

I love the little white table and cabinet mixed with prim things!  If you'd like to pick up a copy or subscribe check it out here.  Country Sampler is my favorite magazine.  I can't wait to get the home tour edition.

Have a blessed day,



  1. Love those kitchens! I too am pining for Spring.

  2. I want spring to come so that I can work on redos...loved the CS too.
