Make Me Smile Monday-Charming Country Finds

There is always something to smile about even if it's on a day that you might not feel like smiling...right?

Several friends and I gathered at one our friends homes recently and though I didn't have the opportunity to snap as many pictures as I'd like I did want to share a few with you.

LOVE her style....Isn't this the cutest? The girl is just one little crafty gal.


This was one side of her mantle above her fireplace.Check out the old metal fan.


This was the other side of mantel above her fireplace. Not sure what I like best, the sunflower or the red lantern!


This was in the center wall above her fireplace. SPEAKS SUMMER don't ya think?


In full view...just so cute! Isn't the boat paddle too cute?


One of my favorite pieces. A cornered hutch and so rustic and vintage.


I love everything about this. The simplicity but yet attention to detail. Check those lampshades out!


And I am going to be totally honest....the kitchen is where I spend most of my time so I was IN LOVE with her beautiful kitchen. Looked like something out of a magazine.






Just lovely....Look real closely and tell me what significant vintage piece you see.



I really liked these plates. I am not sure if she had any missing when I left or not! LOL!


Just too cute.



Her guest bathroom was so pretty. I feel in love with her ladder laying on her shower curtain with a burlap bow and grapevine coming down the side.


Darling corner decor.

My favorite piece in the guest bathroom was this and I am making one now for my youngest daughter's class room at school. She has an opened space close to where the children wash and dry their hands and I needed some little something to go there. THIS WOULD BE PERFECT!


Meet my friend Lauren. She loves buying things and refurbish them. She hunts for and finds some of the neatest things ever. Has an eye for finding a needle in a haystack so to say. She works out of her home and is on Facebook, listed as Charming Country Finds. Go visit her if you are on FB. Just say hi.



Sharing some of Lauren's great finds has truly made me smile! Hope it brought a smile to you today my friend.


Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  16. I loved going on the tour with you! That is a sweet home. The significant piece on the cornered hutch? The old photo in a vintage frame. Loved it all. What an inspiration. Time to head to the garage and dig through my stuff and make some changes in my home!
