I’ve always been one to find beauty in odd unique things, and always leaning to light woods, blacks and soft whites. Never really buying something because it was “in style” or “trending” but because it made my heart happy and sparked interest in my design loving mind! My home is really my creative outlet. 
It makes no difference to me if it is a thrifted $2.00 goodwill find or $30.00 target gem! 🎯 
I just like what I like 🤷🏻‍♀️ whether it’s old or new! The most important thing to me is that I love the pieces in my home and environment it is creating. To me it’s all about creating a cozy space that brings you Joy and gives life to you! Does that even make sense? Lol 
Life this day and time is moving like a fast train everyone always going going. So when I’m home want it to be a space I love to come home to spending time with the people I love! 
I truly believe creating a space that YOU love is so important, not creating a space you think everyone else will love. Do YOU, be YOU, cause your home is a reflection of you and your personality!! Let it shine bright friends!! Love y’all BIG!!❤️🤗
Is it still considered acceptable to post a picture with your Christmas tree in it after Christmas?? 🤷🏻‍♀️ I mean technically it’s winter decor in my opinion? 🤔 Mine is not up in real life but I loved this pic and it has my couch in it that I was telling you guys about in stories today!!😉 One of the biggest questions I get asked is how in the world do you have white couches with kids and a dog in the house!  But y’all I have loved them! They are slipcovered IKEA couches and so far they have lasted me 4 YEARS!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 I spilled the beans today in stories on why I love them so much and the benefits to having white and slipcovers instead of regular couches! If your interested in my opinion at all run 🏃🏻‍♀️ over to stories and check it out! 😜 
Are you super skeptical about white couches too or more like ehhhh it will all come out in the wash! 🤪🤣 #cottagestyle #mysouthernliving #farmhouseinspired #modernfarmhouse #designtwinslove #hgtv #cottagefarmhouse #mycottagefarmhouse #thriftedfinds  #mysouthernliving #targetstyle #lmbpresets #thedesigntwinslove #nuetraldecor
If Monday were shoes it would be crocs! Do you agree? 🤣🤣 Y’all I typed up this really long vulnerable post tonight telling you a tid bit of my story and pouff out of nowhere it disappeared. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤯 Holy Heck people how does that happen?? Me and technology don’t always get along! It’s quite the love hate relationship! 🤪 
This is all I got y’all! My brain exploded when the chaos happened so this is all your getting! 😂😂 Hang with me till tomorrow night friends I promise to give ya some inspiration! 😉✌🏻
Y'all! It’s that time again!!😆 We are in full force over here planning our VP events for next year! I am so stinking excited I can hardly stand it!! It gives me so much JOY to have all of you shoppers and our vendor family here on the farm! ❤️🤗 First up is our spring show May 3-4 here at White Oaks Farm! It’s going to be a blast! Tickets will be on sale by February 1st!! Also our vendor applications for the next FOUR shows are now live on our website!! 😁😍👏🏻 If YOU or anyone you know is interested in applying to be one of our •loved• vendors check out the application (link in bio) 👍🏻 for all the details and rules for applying.

“The best way to find out what we REALLY need is to get rid of what we don’t”

If you watched my stories today you know it’s been decluttering, tidying and organizing kinda day over here at the VP house! Not my idea fun on Saturday but lord help y’all it was much needed!! I’ve been avoiding it for months if truth be known cause it’s not my strong suit! 💁🏻‍♀️ Decorating, be creative I got dis but cleaning out and organizing.....ugh well you basically have to pin me down and make me! 🤷🏻‍♀️🙈
I survived with only minimal moments of overwhelm and wanting to wave the white 🏳 and surrender! 🤣🤣 And heck if I’m being honest it does feel pretty dang good to walk in my closet and actually see the floor and the clothes be arranged by color!🙌🏻🙌🏻 💃🏻 Who else has been cleaning out today, or are you still avoiding it like the plague it like I was? 🤷🏻‍♀️🤣🤣 #bhghome #laundryroom #vintage #farmhouselaundryroom #blackcabinets #farmhousehome #farmhousechic #cottagestyle #cottagedecor #vintagerugs #benjaminmoore #simplywhiteandbright
If only my kitchen was actually this clean right now and the sink wasn’t full of dishes!😬 There is always tomorrow cause tonight I’m lacking the motivation to clean it up before we go to bed y’all! 😵

It’s back to cold weather over here in our neck of the woods and it has me not wanting to get out from under this blanket where it’s nice and cozy. Anybody else feel me?? I’m more of a sunshine and 80’s kinda girl!☀️😎
My kiddos asked tonight how much longer till summer...... long time baby long time!! Lol 
I had also been got lots of questions about some things in my kitchen so I sourced a few for you guys in my stories if you wanna check them out! 
Hope y’all are snuggled up warm and cozy tonight friends!! Love ya BIG!! 😘❤️ #kitchendetails #bhghome #cottagesandbungalows #thecottagejournal #americanfarmhousestyle #reclaimedwooddecor #whitekitchencabinets #rangehooddesign #farmhousekitchen #farmhousehome #cottonstemheartskitchendecor #farmhouseinspired
Good people bring out the good in people y’all! I’ve spent the last 2 days with some of my business friends @americasmartatl and what a trip it’s been! I can’t tell you how thankful I’am to have met so many great friends through VP! It’s such a blessing to have likeminded friends walking with you through this entrepreneur journey of starting your own business! All working together to help each reach your goals and dreams, support, encourage and cheer each other on!! We are headed home now and I can’t wait to get some late night snuggles with my kiddos and rest my brain a bit!! My ADD self is seriously on overload right now from all the beautiful things we Saw this weekend!

What a day y’all! Me and my girls from @theboxtruckboutique headed out at 5:30am to Atlanta Market this week and oh my word we just sat down for the first time today. 😳😵 All I can say is thank gosh for a good pair of shoes!! I literally cannot wait to get my comfies on and crawl up in the bed! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 I’m pretty sure I’m officially getting old! 
We saw so much inspiration and displays today that was just absolutely beautiful. Totally we had a ball touching and feeling all the pretty things! Tomorrow we will be up bright and early and back at again! 
Also this room is one of my favorites in the house because it gets so much sunlight it literally makes me happy just being in there!  It’s actually about the only room in the house that gets good sunlight. There is something about sunshine that is just good for the soul! 
Hope y’all had a great Tuesday friends, it’s time for me to get comfy and hop in the bed!🤗❤️ @rachelclarkephoto 📷

I know, I know, it’s not usual to see a picture of someone’s tv on the gram but I figured why not??? I mean we all got tv’s and I figure most of you are sitting in front of them tonight either watching the bachelor, the national championship or Netflix!🤣🤣 So, why not show you how I styled around mine!  It’s super simple and yes there are tv cords showing in this picture 😱🙈 but we all gotta plug our TVs up y’all!!🤣 ( honestly I just forgot to move them) meh.... I figured its real life? The piece above the tv is a super cool old game board piece from a Catholic Church or school if I’m remembering right? I snagged it from the @thejunkmama_louisvilleky and had it framed to save it from getting damaged and I love how it turned out! The two pieces on each side of the tv are some type of vintage 🛠 that I cannot think of the name of and it’s literally on the tip of my tongue if someone can remind me it would help my brain not 🤯🤣 On another note In stories today I talked about how we set goals for our family, marriage, business and spiritual life in the new year and have loved hearing you guys feedback too! Also today I asked what you guys would want to see from VP in 2019!! I would love it if you would hop on over to stories and give me some of your ideas?? ❤️😘🤗 #americanfarmhousestyle #cottageandfarm #bhghome #cottagesandbungalows #realhomesofinstagram #vintagestyledecor #showmethevintage #howyouhome #fleamarketdecor #fleamarketstyle #farmhousehome #farmhousevintage #inspire_me_home_decor #hgtvmagazine
C H E R I S H  the kitchen table.
·
There isn’t much that makes me happier than when we all get to sit and eat dinner together at the kitchen table.

It is where life’s daily drama is played out. The meals, the spilled milk,  the homework,  and it’s where we thank the Lord for our many blessings. Its easy for us to cherish our kitchen tables; love just happens there, step by step, day by day. Although here lately life has been so busy we haven’t gotten to do it as much as I’d like. I hope this year to get better at making it a priority a few nights a week. 🤞🏻❤️
·
I’d ❤️ love to hear your favorite kitchen table memories or traditions that happen around your table? ·
We have an open concept in our house. Kitchen, dining and living is all one open room! I really wanted to do something different on the ceilings when we were renovating. It had popcorn ceilings (phew! 😅)
·
My first choice was reclaimed wood but our budget didn’t allow for that, at the time. So, we opted for tongue & groove pine and coffered ceilings.
·
Inside the coffered area in the dining room, we stained the boards a warm grey to add some character and break up the room a bit. Our ceilings are only 8ft but it was the perfect way to cover the popcorn and add some texture without closing the room in to much! ·
AND.....After 5 years, I still haven't gotten tired of it. I call that a WIN! 🤣 If I ever do get tired of it, it’s a simple fix. 👌🏼😜 I can just paint it white to match the rest of the house!

Ready for the news? Y’all it has been so hard to 🤐  keep this in for the past several months, but I am so excited to share with you now!

Vintage Pickin' is EXPANDING and we are headed to the cutest little town 10 miles outside Greenville, SC in October 2019! This event will be in addition to our Spring, Fall and Christmas Barn Sales that we host at our homeplace in Fyffe, Alabama!

We get so many messages and feedback from people wishing they could come to our event in Fyffe but are so far away or they just couldn’t make it that weekend. So, we wanted to be able to bring this to more of you that aren't close to us here in Fyffe. Or, maybe you come to our events in Fyffe but just want another time to shop in another city for a girls trip!

We have searched high and low for the perfect venue (cuz y’all know atmosphere is one of our top priorities) and as soon as we walked into Taylors Mill, we knew it was going to be the PERFECT setting and backdrop to host you shoppers and our amazing vendors.

It's the oldest textile mill in the Southeast and the architecture is something to see in itself. So much history! 
The mill had abandoned for years, but has recently been revitalized and given a new purpose which is EXACTLY what we are about. They have brought back and highlighted the exposed brick, the beams, etc. (You’ll just have to Google Taylors Mill to get the idea)

We feel like Taylors, South Carolina has close to the same feeling of what it’s like to come here to our little town and we couldn’t be more excited! Less than 3 hours from ATL, Knoxville and Charlotte! Who's ready for a road trip?! We are thrilled to be expanding this business for you guys!

Save the date: October 18-19, 2019

Who knows where we may go next?! Please help us get the word out and share this exciting news. If you know someone that lives in surrounding areas that would be a good fit as a vendor or love to shop there, share this with them. 🚨 If you are new to following us you may not know about Vintage Pickin' events. We host a Fall, Spring & Christmas barn sale here at our home-place in Fyffe. If you have any questions let me know in the comments! 👇 I may go live tonight for a Q & A!
It’s been 2 long days in the salon y’all and it’s time to put my comfies on, tuck the kiddos in bed and park it on this couch for a hot minute and chill with Mr. VP to watch a lil Netflix! Anybody else feel me?? 🙋🏻‍♀️

Before I do though, I wanted to show y’all the before pic of my beloved white drawer piece that I scored on Craigslist! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 I swear I will probably never get that lucky again to find one on there. It was a freaking DREAM PIECE y’all minus the gunk and oil all over it. And, it came out of this dudes garage!! All I can say is THANK GOODNESS for a good husband willing to drive an hour to pick it up for ya when you can’t! 😬 I swear he loves me y’all!! 🙌🏻❤️
+
It was green like kelly green and I know I know so many of you wanted me to keep it that way but I just couldn’t! I already have another green piece in the foyer so I didn’t want 2 green pieces. So I went with white and I absolutely LOVE IT 🙌🏻🙌🏻 Are you a craigslist junkie? What’s the best find you have ever scored? Mine is this piece and my leather couch!!!❤️🙌🏻 #bhghome #farmhousestyle  #howyouhome #farmhousechristmas #interiorstyling #countrylivingmag #farmhousechic #myhomevibe #cottagestyle #hgtv #homedecorating #vintage #americanfarmhousestyle #thedesigntwinslovechristmas #harperhausinteriors #neutraldoneright #southernlivingmag #cottagesandbungalows #thecottagejournal  #hgtvmagazine #fleamarketdecor #inspire_me_home_decor #lmbpresets #showusthevintage
