Happy Halloween!

It's hard to believe I took these photos three years ago! The time goes by so fast! I'll be posting new items on Wednesday this week, instead of tomorrow. See you then! And Happy Halloween!       ... [Continue Reading]

Apricots and peonies

  Just dropping in to let you know new items will be available for purchase tomorrow morning. I also wanted to share a few photos I took back in late spring. One of the flip homes we did in May had some pink peony bushes, so I just helped myself to a pretty bouquet. I planted peonies this summer at our home and I'm crossing my fingers that by ...

House Tour: Christmas Edition

Good morning, my dears! I'm so excited to share a Christmas house tour with you this morning. It usually takes me forever in a day to get things the way I want them. I'll be fiddling around until Christmas and then it will be time to take it all down! Yesterday, Mr. Keller took the boys for a few hours so I could take some photos. Those of you who ...

Autumn tour for Flourish, new items up tomorrow!

I just thought I'd drop in and share some recent photos of our living room and entry way. I'm a regular contributor for Idaho State Journal's Flourish magazine and my assignment this month was to cozy up my living space for autumn. Autumn's pretty much my favorite time of year to decorate. I often skip over "spooky" decor until just a few days ... [Continue Reading]

Our kitchen, and a few other photos.

    Happy Friday afternoon! I posted a few reduced items on our Facebook page, as well as a stack sale! Head over to Facebook to check those out! In the mean time, here are a few other photos from our most recent house tour.     I often miss having an entryway table, but this hall tree is too cute for me to ... [Continue Reading]

Our family room

Hey there! Tomorrow morning, I'll be posting new items, but for today, here are some recent shots of our family room. We spend most of our day in this room, so it's rare to find it without toys strewn all over the floor, in addition to crumbs, spilled sippy cups, clothes and whatever else our children find to play with.I haven't changed a whole ...

Photos of our living room

  Good morning, my dears. I wanted to take the next few days to post some recent photos of our home, starting with our front room. I 're-did' our living room a few months ago and I like it much better now. I took away several pieces that just weren't working for me and I added a few other pieces of furniture, including a farmhouse hutch I ... [Continue Reading]

My favorite recent finds

    First and foremost, my darlings: Happy Valentine's Day! Mr. Keller and I usually go out on a date the weekend before and then have a little family party on the day of, where we exchange little presents and the boys each get a heart balloon. We have sparkling cider and a candle-lit dinner, and I make Mr. Keller's favorite ... [Continue Reading]

More of our Christmas Tour

I took these photos last Monday with full intention of posting them days ago, but somehow it just didn't get done. Are the days flying for anyone else, too? I swear! Anyway, here are a few more pictures from the rest of our house. You all know I'm a no-color type of gal for 11 months out of the year, but I sure do love pulling out everything red ...

Living Room Christmas Tour

Good morning, my dears! Today, I thought I'd share with you some photos of our living room all decked out for Christmas. I'm still working on adding  a few touches throughout the rest of the house, but I'm planning on sharing some more photos next week. I, along with most of you, really love this time of year! It's so magical with children around ... [Continue Reading]

Spooky Halloween Decor

Good morning! I wanted to share with you some photos I took of our living room all decked out for Halloween. I had a lot of fun with 'theme: spooky' this year and as it turns out, this room was the perfect backdrop. I'm still recovering from the flea market a few weeks ago and will be taking it easy for a few more days. New items will be posted on ... [Continue Reading]

Tour Our House: Autumn Edition

  Good morning! Since I'm taking a break from regular posting as I prepare for the Vintage Flea this weekend, I thought it would be fun to take a few photos of our house now that I have it decorated for autumn. Remember, we will be hosting a booth at the WildHare Vintage Flea *THIS WEEKEND* in Pocatello at the Bannock County ... [Continue Reading]

Hi, I’m Hollie.

  The first home Mr. Keller and I bought together was on the south side of town in the university area. I remember falling head over heels for the original wood floors, the arch doorways and the brick fireplace that was married to a very shabby mantel. I was so young back then and had very little idea of what my personal style was, but oh, ... [Continue Reading]

The Art of Fiddling

  When staging pieces or decorating my own home, I really only have one expectation, and that is that things will be fiddled with. Very rarely does a decor item get perfectly spaced and placed the very first time I set it down. I never realized how compulsively I arrange and rearrange things until I had my first baby. One day, I was ... [Continue Reading]

Keeping it real.

Yesterday, I touched a little on my cleaning routine, and since I posted new items this morning, I’m kind of on a time crunch, so this post will be fairly brief! One of the other frequent comments I get is semi-related to yesterday’s topic and it's how my house always looks “so clean”.  The funny (almost hysterical) thing about staging and ...

The color white: how I manage it.

  Good morning, my dears! I'm planning on doing a series of daily posts this week dedicated to answering some of the questions I'm frequently asked regarding decorating, the colors in my house and how Vintage Farm is ran. Towards the end of the week, I have a giveaway planned, as well, so please keep an eye out for ... [Continue Reading]

Summer mantel and other photos from around our house

Good morning, my dears! This week, I've been busy sprucing up the house for summertime. I have a few things I pull out of storage each year that make our home less winter-ish, as if we don't experience winter for at least eight months out of the year. I don't know about you, but I'm in major celebration mode when the sunshine is high and hot in the ... [Continue Reading]

Some sweet recent finds

Good morning, my darlings. It's been several months since I've shared a few of my own finds. I must admit, my treasure hunting is done with Vintage Farm in mind, but from time to time, I find things I can't seem to part with. Here are a few of those things.... I recently went to an estate sale where the lady collected kitchen items. She had dozens ... [Continue Reading]

Happy Easter Weekend

Hello my dears. I just wanted to stop in and share a few pictures I snapped this morning. I picked up a fresh bouquet of tulips last night and we're getting excited for the weekend. I'll be making my grandma's scalloped potato recipe and some carrot cake, too. I'm also looking forward to pulling out all my vintage linens. Four years ago, I bought ... [Continue Reading]

Our Family Room

Today, I'm excited to share with you my favorite room in our house. Our family room! This was the room that gave me the vision when we first walked through the house! I immediately fell in love with the wood beams and the arched fireplace. Those two things kept me going when things were so overwhelming I wanted to cry (and sometimes did!). There ...

‘Before & After’ of a New Chair and CSW Designs

I picked up this fabulous vintage sitting chair at an antique shop in Logan, Utah at the end of December. My in-laws moved there a few months ago and whenever we visit, we always take the truck because the visit isn't complete without loading up at the fun stores along Main Street. I fell in love with the wood frame of this chair and knew right ... [Continue Reading]

Kitchen Details and Buying Sources

  After I posted pictures of our new kitchen, I had quite a few emails and comments requesting more information about the transformation. I've also had a lot of emails about the paint color we used throughout the house. I'm planning on doing another post later this week about that, so for now, here's the details on our kitchen ...

Our Kitchen

Let's chat about our kitchen today. This is, by far, the room I lost the most sleep over. I knew exactly what I wanted, but was lovingly told a few million times that this would not be my dream kitchen. When we build in a few years, maybe then will I get exactly what I want....(marble countertops, farmhouse sink, cupboard-front appliances...etc.) ...
