Little Glimpses of my Home

Sometimes it's the little areas or things you love the most about your home.  I love my little reading area where I read my bible in the morning, the way the light travels in my kitchen on my table top.  I just love the little hallway nook that I have a table nestled with my sheep things.  I just love my new little coffee sign, I consider myself Queen of Coffee, LOL...not really! I just love flavored coffee creamers.  I'm enjoying french vanilla right now but I can't wait for the fall ones. 

I found this at Hobby Lobby, 1/2 off of signs.

My newest tabletop, I have some old kitchen tools, my grandmother's rolling pin.  The large ball jar and new cake plate (found at Home Goods)  you can change out the ribbon.  Then I got a little rooster at Cracker Barrel 1/2 off.  I finally gave in to the Roosters and chickens.  This is my first one.  I think I'm enjoying them because of my recent farm experience.  I've recently been inspired by some Rooster Blog parties too.   What do you guys think?  Do you love them or hate them?

I'll be back soon, I've been tweaking and have some more pictures and signs to share with you.  My children go back to school tomorrow and they are excited, and I'm ready! Whew...I am looking forward to a little more quiet time. The only problem is mom is going back too!

Have a Blessed Day!



  1. I love Roosters Carrie and when I get my kitchen re-done it will showcase several rooster decorations I have acquired along the way. I like the more rustic looking ones myself. I have towels with machine stitched roosters on them, a clock, 2 large pictures, a towel apron made from rooster material and several other actual rooster pieces that will sit on top of my cupboards. Someday but I don't know when.
    ps. love the old kitchen gadgets!

  2. Very pretty! I saw your comment on 50's Gal's wonderful blog. I, too, am the wife of a retired military spouse. Looking for other spouses of retired military to blog with. Miss military wife, but we are now, after many years, quite civilianized, in a small midwestern town.

  3. I am not into the roosters, but I do love how you have the middle of your table - it is so cute! I also really like your last pic. Your house is too cute!

  4. Hey Carey,
    I have fallen into the rooster craze myself! I am trying hard not to go overboard with them, but it's hard! I love all the glimpses you've shared of your home. Very nice. My son goes back to school on Thursday of this week. I am excited about that because he is eating me out of house and home! Enjoy your week!

  5. Beautiful! I love that country home style. My house is like that too. I know what you mean about favorite parts of your home. I have those too.

  6. Oh I love roosters, and I have several around my kitchen. I love seeing bits and pieces of your home. Very homey in deed!
