Waco. It’s a town I love and one I look forward to getting to know better. This past week I was very blessed to be the guest of @gatheringoaksretreat. They have a variety of accommodations from a four bedroom house to two bedroom casitas to tiny houses (pictured here) and others!
What I love most about @gatheringoaksretreat is that it is relaxing, has wide open spaces and country charm. They have a wonderful outdoor area with fire pits, a pool and some awesome areas to relax outside and talk. It’s perfect for a retreat, a girl’s weekend or just a quick stay. Plus, they have a very fun neighbor that lives across the street (and I am not telling who that is 🙈). So head on over to @gatheringoaksretreat and give them a follow. If you are heading to Waco, it’s a fun place to stay!
I am back home after spending a week in Waco and Round Top, Tx. What a trip!
It seems ages ages ago that I walked into our new fixer upper home for the first time. Experiencing the amazing Round Top Antique Flea Market for the first time was incredible. (Stories are saved on my highlights!) Thanks again to my friend @debrahalllifestyle for taking me along on your journey!
This fabulous sconce is from @antiquefarmhouse. I love that you can have it hard wired or just plug it in. I used one of their cord covers and I love it! Head on over to @antiquefarmhouse to check it out!
Just sitting here admiring this beautiful mantel I got recently as a surprise from my love. It’s from our local flea market @yankee_flea_market. If you’re in the MA or CT area, you’ve gotta go check them out! I’ve pretty much decorated my entire house by shopping there! 🍃
Anyways, even though the lighting is never great in our living room, I had to snap a pic of this view. Do you have a spot in your house that makes you feel so happy when you look at it? I got some great suggestions from you all for insert ideas and I can’t wait to work on them this weekend. Have a great day, buddies!
“One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just doesn’t belong” Who remembers that song?☺️ I brought two pumpkins home from the pumpkin patch today! The third one is plastic and doesn’t belong.😆 And Yes, that’s a real life, great big dent in the wall and it’s been there for a long time!😂 #itspumpkinseason
I love finding new accounts, especially when they are from all the across the Atlantic Ocean! Trude from @my_vintage_h_o_m_e has a gorgeous home in Sweden. I love her style and that she is a mum to five (I am one of five!)
I have to be honest and tell you I can’t read her posts (I only know English and a bit of spanish🙈) but I love her feed so much it doesn’t matter.
Swipe left to see more of her amazing photos and then head on over to @my_vintage_h_o_m_e. You won’t believe what you see.
Sneeeeak PEAK!!! I’ve been keeping a little secret... some of you know cuz you’ve been watching my stories 😏 But amid all the other crazy happening around here, we are also redoing our downstairs bathroom! I went to @homegoods on a shopping spree for my birthday (thanks Mom!) and here is a tiny sneak peak of some of the goodies I got. If you want to see the rest, check out my YouTube vid- Homegoods Haul! 😍
Aaaand another little surprise, i have had so many of you message me or comment on my posts and ask for help with decorating different areas of your home, so I am going to start making videos, bringing you along my thought process- and letting you into that crazy part of my brain. 🤪😂 so make sure you watch them - so I don’t feel like dork. Kidding!! Sort of. 😆
Okay so Ive decided since you guys loved my post sharing sweet Kristi @thepickledrose so much, and there isn’t a single room in our house currently that is photogenic due to never ending projects, I’ll share all the things I love and wish to be!!! All while repeating these words that I wrote last April when I first joined Instagram and instantly thought to myself, my home is not good enough...I hope they make you feel as optimistic as they do me. .
“Don’t be discouraged by the things you don’t have, BE INSPIRED” . 🍂Inspired-a feeling I never felt so strongly until now.
🍂Motivated- what you guys do to me every.single.day!!!
Thank you for sharing your best and making me strive for greatness!
Ellen @featherglass has such incredible taste, I’d say her home is in my 5!!! 🍂😍😱🤤😱🙋🏼♀️I LOVE IT! Swipe to see more!.
Today I am sharing one of my all time favorite gals on Instagram. I have shared her before and I will keep sharing her because I like her so much!
Karan, pronounced Kar(n), @designsbykaran, is a master at everything she does. She is a fabulous designer, inspiring writer, and has helped me so much. Karan is one of those people who always amazes me with her kindness and generosity. Not to mention her talent!

Karan is definitely #onetofollow .
Good morning!! Coffee, anyone?! 😄 I am a coffee addict, so I was especially excited about the coffee bar in the new house! 🤗 It is still a work in progress (would like to add some vintage coffee pieces) but I thoroughly enjoy this area 😍 ☕️ http://liketk.it/2xp2o #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKhome @liketoknow.it.home
What a day! I didn’t really know what to expect @roundtop but it was even better than what I expected. We have been driving around all day in Warrenton in two uhaul trucks and shopping like crazy. I owe a huge thank you to @debrahalllifestyle and @thepinkporchventura and @sticksnstonesantiques. They have been amazing hosts and I have learned so much.
And I guess I bought a few things too. For Waco of course. 🙈🙈
I promise to catch up on your comments. And you can head to my stories if you want to enjoy Round Top with me!
