Rust & Honey

Hi Friends!
Are you all staying cool this summer?  Yesterday our temperature was 109 degrees! That is Hot!
On hot days like that I enjoy staying indoors, sipping on a large glass of lemonade, with a fan blowing in my face, while enjoying some online shopping.
How about you? 
I have discovered a cool new store called,


 Rust & Honey specializes in farmhouse, vintage, and shabby chic home decor.   
I seriously want one of everything that they sell, but my most favorite item in their store is this Hippie Tote. I had to have it the moment I laid eyes on it.


I've been needing a new bag for a while now, but I'm pretty picky about my bags. I like to have outside pockets for my phone and keys so I don't have to go digging for them. So this bag was so perfect for me; not only does it have those outside pockets, but how adorable is the Peace sign on the front? 

And check out the inside lining....  you know how much I love a blue and white stripe.
I love toting around this bag everywhere I go now.

But enough about my bag, here are a few of my other favorites from Rust & Honey:
 As well as this gold feather necklace with a leather cord. I think it would be so fun to wear, and it's currently on sale for a great price.


 Great stuff, right?

Head on over to Rust & Honey to see more!
You can also follow Rust & Honey on Facebook & Instagram.

Thanks for stopping by,

Gallery Wall Picture Ledges

A few months back I shared my gallery wall picture ledges over at City Farmhouse.
Today, I thought I'd re-share it here on my own blog for anyone who may have missed it.
These ledges were super easy to build, and they made such a statement in my living room.
The picture ledges allow me to freely switch around my pictures without creating any nail holes, or worrying about messing up a whole wall arrangement

Father's Day Campout

I just wanted to pop in real quick today and share a few pictures of our Father's day camping trip.
I know I haven't shared any decorating projects in a while, it's just because I have been off spending quality time with my family. We have had such an amazing summer so far.

But don't give up on me just yet, I do have some projects in the making.  They'll be coming soon!
I hope you are having a great summer too!

Depoe Bay, Oregon

Last week we were in Depoe Bay, Oregon, one of my most favorite places in the whole entire world.
We love the Oregon coast so much that we head there every year. 
I have so many wonderful memories of our times spent there.
It's our Happy Place for sure :)
So hopefully without boring you too bad, I thought I'd share pictures of our trip....
 and there just happens to be a lot!
We rented this sweet little beach house, which I like to call, "our beach house" since we have stayed here before. It's named, Driftwood.
This is another beach house rental in the neighborhood that I totally fell in love with. It's beautiful and has an ocean front view. It's quite large so it would be perfect to rent if you had a large group of people.
 The views from where we stayed were amazing!

Easy Macrame Bead Curtain Using Yarn

I don't know if you have noticed, but macrame has become super trendy lately.
I've been seeing it pop up in interiors more and more.
For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, macrame is a technique of trying knots to create art. You will mostly see it used for plant hangers and wall hangings.
I think it is super cool! And so I wanted to try it out for myself.
I decided to make a macrame bead curtain. This is a great project for beginners like me.
 Here is how it turned out:
I used yarn for my curtain because basically it was all I had on hand. 
I also added wood beads, not only because I like the look of it, but also to give it some weight to allow the yarn to hang better.
