Back to working on furniture. My favorite part of the restoration process (other than the finished product) is the destruction. Removing layer upon layer of junk to marvel at the bones for a moment before the project rises like a phoenix from the ashes. ❤️ #restorationproject#furniturerestoration#antiquefurniture

🎀 Did you know nearly 250,000 people will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year? 😢 That could be your mother, sister, daughter, your wife, your friend, or even you. 👧🏽👩🏼👵🏼👱🏻♀️
💕 In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a portion of our sales from @foreverpinkvintage will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This donation helps to provide educational resources for those diagnosed with breast cancer and their loved ones, free mammograms and other services to those who can’t afford them, and more awareness to the community to help prevent this disease.

Tea time. ☕️ That’s my favorite time of day (or all day). I have to say I do drink at least 5 cups of tea a day 🤭❤️🙌🏼. I don’t drink coffee (to stimulating). For a long time, I didn’t know it was a stimulant and could jack you up to high heaven. (Well, some of us). And I couldn’t handle being jacked up that high. 😂🤪 But tea with a little almond creamer and sitting on the porch is my jam. Do you drink tea?? ☕️. On another note, thank you for all the messages to see where I have been and what’s been going on. I appreciate those ladies who messaged (you all are the best). I mostly have not posted because I am having flair ups with several of the chronic autoimmune conditions I have .. or deal with. Way to much to explain here. But it robs me of my energy and so much more. Plus, their is an emotional element to it and the continued fight to get these conditions under control. I’m sure many here can relate... if you have some type of chronic illness. And if you do just know I’m here praying for you and your recovery. I will continue to post (so I hope you don’t run away)😂and hopefully share some insight into what it’s like to have chronic illness and what I am doing to manage these issues. Our next step as a family, is to travel to St. Louis for surgery on Halloween (no, I have no idea how I got that surgery date)👻 If you have read this far... well, your awesome! ❤️😘 Hope you all have a blessed day! “Hope is not pretending that troubles don’t exist. It is the hope that they won’t last forever. That hurts will be healed and difficulties overcome. That we will be led out of the darkness and into the sunshine” 🌈🙏🏼. #farmhouse#chippy#vintage#whitedecor#woodandwhite#whiteinteriors#romantichomes#romantichomesmagazine#bellagracemagazine#thefarmhousemovement#antiquedecor#antiquefurniture#ironstone#igvintage#oldhouse#oldhomelove#onlylovetoday#pursuepretty#primitivedecor#pocketsofmyhome#americanfarmhousestyle#simplefarmhousestyle#fixerupper#homedecor#howivintage#livesimply#lightandbright
@wilmaweller captured our beautiful Tiffany lamp in a late afternoon sunbeam. The lamp was commissioned in 1901 as a memorial for Lord & Lady Leith’s son, Percy, who died of typhoid during the Boer War. Around 10% of the British soldiers who served in South Africa contracted typhoid. Overall the deaths through typhoid outnumbered those lost to combat. I know it’s rather random to get onto enteric fever in regards to a beautiful, unique lamp. But that’s the story behind it!
