Lilacs in the Family Room...

Despite the forecast, live like it's spring. - Lily Pulitzer

I love that quote but thankfully, it does feel like spring in the Pacific Northwest! As I write, it's a sunny, blue-sky, 75-degree day. The kind we could only dream of a month or two ago! I hope you are enjoying spring weather too, and looking forward to summer. I think we're down to 13 days left of school, as we limp towards the finish line...

Sundays at Home {Link Party}

We're so happy you've joined us for Sundays at Home, and hope you're enjoying the spring season! 

It's been wonderful seeing all of nature come back to life here at our little farmstead. We have a few different varieties of lilacs, including the white ones with pink undertones on the table above. I wish we had a scratch 'n sniff feature so you could enjoy their fragrant scent! 

Maybe you have your own lilacs to enjoy. (I hope so!) One of our features this week provides helpful tips for pruning and enjoying lilacs... So let's get this week's party started!

Our New (Old, Actually) Farmhouse Hutch...

Hi Friends ~ I hope it's been a great week for you and that you're looking forward to the weekend! I wanted to share with you a new (old) piece of furniture that has really changed the feel of our dining room. This vintage hutch was purchased from Anthropologie by a lady I met through Facebook Marketplace. She was downsizing homes and sold it to us for 20 percent of what she paid! I could tell she really loved the piece and I assured her I did as well. ;)

Introducing Our Babydoll Southdown Sheep...

I'm happy to introduce you to George, Winston, and Teddy, our new Babydoll Southdown Sheep! (If you follow along with me on Instagram or Facebook you have already been lamb-spammed by me. Sorry, but they're just sooo cute!)

Lilacs In Bloom...

I hope everyone has had a good week and is looking forward to the weekend! I just wanted to stop in and share our lilacs, which are about a month behind when they typically bloom here in the Pacific Northwest. 

Good things come to those who wait. (We really had no choice but to wait, did we?) Ironically, this sentiment could be applied to other areas in our life right now too... I've heard it said, "God is never late, but He's rarely early." His timing is perfect, we remind ourselves. 

I'm rarely early either, but I can't claim I'm never late. And after this year, neither can our lilacs... ;)

Tween Boy's Bedroom Makeover {Noah's Room}

Hi Friends ~ I hope your day is going well! I'm excited to be sharing our middle son Noah's bedroom makeover with you today. The tradition at our house, is that when our boys turn 12, they get a new, bigger (full size) bed and bedroom makeover. While I have a lot of weaknesses (old doors, chairs, pillows, etc.), bedding is not one of them. I tend to find something I really like, and may pay a little more for it, but I stick with it. Prior to this room update, Noah had had the same bedding for about seven years. It was time!

Heritage Breed Chickens {And Which Chicks We Chose...}

Since moving here to our little farmstead almost five years ago, there are three sounds that will forever remind me of spring: 1. The sound of our boys playing outside as the days grow longer 2. The sound of frogs croaking at night (usually noticed the first evening it's warm enough to open the windows!) 3. The sound of baby chicks happily chirping...

When thinking about the breeds of chickens we would add this year to grow our little flock, there were two things I wanted... A beautiful chicken breed, and a breed that would lay colored eggs.

Welcome to Sundays at Home!

We hope you're enjoying the weekend and ready for all the inspiration shared below by the many bloggers who join us here each week. Whether you're sharing your recent projects, browsing for ideas, or doing both - thank you for joining us! 

Here at our little farmstead, we've had a big week. We just brought home three adorable Southdown Babydoll lambs, and also added a new batch of heritage breed chicks. I'll be sharing more about them this coming week here on the blog, along with more farmhouse spring decorating.

And now, on to the party!
