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.

IMG_2822

  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

IMG_5366

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

IMG_3244r

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.) ...

Patterned Curtain Panels

 {Just a reminder: We'll be at the WILDHARE FLEA MARKET on MARCH 22nd AND 23rd! Bannock County Fairgrounds in Pocatello!} When I was in Boise a few weekends ago, I found this killer fabric at Home Fabrics. It's this huge warehouse full of discount designed fabrics and rugs. This was only $8.99 a yard, if you can believe that, and it's ... [Continue Reading]

WildHare Flea Market Reminder! Two weeks to go!

I've had a lot of people ask when the WildHare Flea Market is. Soooooo......here we go. It's actually in just two weeks (which makes my head spin!). The dates and times are Friday, March 22nd  from 10am-7pm and Saturday, March 23rd from 9am-5pm. Be sure to mark your calendars! It will be held at the Bannock County Fairgrounds and there will be ... [Continue Reading]

Our bedroom

IMG_3626

I'd like to share a few photos of our bedroom with you guys this morning. The room isn't very big and since we have a king bed, I feel like 'bed' is all there is room for. I shouldn't be complaining though, because the double closets are a huge upgrade from our last house. I'm still looking for a little bench to go at the foot of the bed and ... [Continue Reading]

Happy March!

My dears, I, for one, am celebrating that today is the first of March. Winters are loooong for me (and for lots of people, I know) and I always breathe a sigh of relief when this day rolls around each year. I'll be back next week with more pictures of our house, but for now, have a wonderful weekend and here are some springy photos I shot for ... [Continue Reading]

Our Dining Room

IMG_3876

So, today I'd like to share some pictures of our dining room. Ideally, I wish this little room was a tad bigger, but I'm coming to enjoy how cozy it is. The biggest drawback for me is that there isn't enough room for a hutch. When I let my beloved black hutch go to a new home last fall, I consoled myself, knowing that I had no plans for black ...

Our Living Room

I have to admit, I was feeling a bit discouraged for the first two months of living in our new house. Exhausted from moving and from the holiday rush, I was feeling in such a decorative rut. I had spent the last few months buying things I thought would work perfectly in the house and had a folder full of inspiration pins on Pinterest, and in the ... [Continue Reading]

A hello and some ‘before’ pictures

Good morning, my dears. Hope you all had a great weekend. We're officially signed up to participate in the march WildHare Flea Market here in Pocatello at the Bannock County Fairgrounds March 22nd and 23rd (go mark your calendars now!). I'm so excited and already have some really great pieces that will be up for grabs. I may be posting an item or ... [Continue Reading]

We’re still here!

  My darlings, it feels like it's been forever! How are you all? I've missed you so! At long last, we're happy to say we're finally in our new home. We've been here for a few weeks and between trying to finish up the remodel and unpacking, it's about done us in. We're happy to say, though, we feel we're at the tail-end of this big adventure ...
