Log Cabin Home Tour: Kitchen & Dining Room

As I mentioned last week, I have been preparing a full log cabin home tour from our recent stay in the Adirondacks. Today, I am so excited to get it started with the kitchen and dining room! If you missed the personal side of the trip, you can check that out here. I will have follow up posts with tours of the living room, master bedroom and more, in the coming weeks so stay tuned. For now, come on in and enjoy a virtual tour of this dreamy log home's kitchen and dining room...
My mom was actually the one who found this rental cabin listed on vacationrentals.com. I have a thing for log cabins and was so excited when my mom showed me this one. The reviews were great and it looked amazing in the pictures. It was honestly even better in person!

Trip to the Adirondacks

Last week, we had the pleasure of going to the Adirondacks for a few days. It was the first time my husband and I had been there. We went with my mom, step-dad and uncle who had all been before. When my mom and uncle were little, my grandparents would take them up there since it was where my grandmother grew up. That made it even more special since both of my grandparents passed away earlier this year. It almost felt as if they were with us. Their memory definitely was.
We stayed in a beautiful log cabin, which I will be sharing a full home tour of...in installments over the next few weeks, so as not to overwhelm you in one post! I took just shy of a bazillion photos, I think. Today, I wanted to share the personal side of our trip and the sights we saw. Still might be picture overload, but I hope you enjoy...

Hey Friends! I am popping in today to share an amazing course that is coming this September, from Jeanne Oliver, called The Art of Home. As a contributor for Jennifer Rizzo (who is one of the talented instructors), I am able to offer one lucky reader a FREE spot to the class! I will be taking the course as well, and if you have ever taken one of Jeanne's courses, you know they are phenomenal. After taking Creatively Made Home, a couple of years ago, I can't wait to find out what is in store this time around!

Balancing Motherhood & DIY Blogging

The two most time consuming jobs I have ever had are as a mother and a blogger. And both pay the least. Go figure. But somehow I still love both roles enough to keep doing them. Okay, okay...well the first one is a full on heart commitment, right? Even on the roughest of days.
The other, I could let go by the wayside if I wanted to, and yet somehow I don't. I keep trucking on as a mother and a blogger and try to strike a balance between the two. It's tough though...I'm not gonna lie.

Today, I am sharing how I manage to make it work...

New Rug for the Bedroom {sneak peek}

This post contains affiliate links. I may receive a small commission from any sales made through them, but the cost to you does not change. Thanks for the support! Full Disclosure.

Today, I am so excited to give you a sneak peek of the new rug I recently purchased for our in-the-works bedroom makeover! I will actually be on a little getaway to Lake Placid when this post goes live, but I wanted to get it ready to show you before I left. Because I am seriously that in love with it. No joke. If you follow me on Instagram you may have already seen it, but if not, here it is...drum roll...
Finding affordable and awesome rugs can be tricky. I see so many rugs that I would love to own, but they are often way out of our budget. Even the vintage ones with wear and tear. I saw one recently at an antique store that had seen better days and it was still $175. A smaller one in better condition was $250. {Insert my sad face here as I walked away empty handed}.

25+ Ways to Decorate with Affordable Vintage Finds

I love decorating with vintage finds, mostly because they have charm and character but also because I am super thrifty. I love to find a bargain. Always have and likely always will. I scour thrift stores, flea markets, antique malls, garage sales and even the side of the road to find unique and affordable (or free!) pieces. Today, I am sharing a round-up of ways that I have decorated with and repurposed some of these vintage finds in my own home.
