For Easter this year we spent the weekend on the farm where my daughter lives ...
It felt great to get out in nature and shut out the rest of the world. My daughter shares a communal kitchen that is old and rustic and just perfect. It is one huge room with a farmhouse table and open shelving filled with old jars that they use for drinking glasses. One of the first things I did was go out and pick some flowers to fill up a few of those jars to use for our Easter centerpiece.
I loved the old table in the middle of the kitchen - worn and inviting.
There is nothing that says Spring like baby animals. They had week old piglets, a few day old chicks and a cow that I wanted to bring home with me.
And of course, what would Easter be with out the lambs. The poor guy (gal?) in the foreground was sheared the week before. He contributed to this gift I brought home (a future project!!!):
We rented a gorgeous home on the farm to use for the day - it had an another old farmhouse kitchen for us to cook our Easter meal and a large lawn out in front that we used to play soccer and have our egg hunt.
We ate outside under a covered patio with Wisteria blooms all around. So lovely!
The weekend was also just what I needed to help inspire my next project - a rustic, industrial farmhouse kitchen in Wyoming.

This is our inspiration for the project ... my client fell in love with these George Smith sofas.
I hope your week is off to a good start. Is there anything you are dreaming about doing to your house?
