Fresh & Airy !!!

Combining a little "Green" in the mix...

Love the fresh garden feeling of adding little splashes of green!!! After all today is St. Patrick's Day!!!
I hope you all have a happy day!!! 

Do you notice my foot stool??? In the next pic you will see what it originally looked like , I had a great time transforming this $4.99 find...

My favourite thing to do is making something  that's not so useful into something beautiful !!!
O.k the next pic...

I was going to add fabric to the cushion part with pomp pomps , then I decided to do a little stencilling instead... The leather was also in great shape so I thought let's leave well enough alone this time , and I'm happy I did...  

May you find happiness & peace in the arms of our Lord !!! 

Light & Inviting...

Love being in any home that has a "French Country Style & a Shabby Chic feel...
This would be my hope for you when visiting my home!!!


For stopping by!!!
Blessings to you
and all your
loved ones on this beautiful day!!!


  1. Nice job, hey you have the same cloche as me!!!

    Happy St Pats!


  2. Good Morning!
    I love how you styled that table, especially that beautiful I see under the plant. Little touches like that are the prettiest to me. I may have to borrow that idea. :)

    Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  3. I especially love the little stool, table and mirror!
    When we visited PEI we pretty much went all over the whole island in 5 days. Here's a couple of links to posts I did about it. Maybe you'll recognize my family's homestead or some of my relatives!

  4. Another great project!

    Hope you are enjoying this beautiful weekend.

    Warm greetings from the Netherlands

  9. I've so much enjoyed my visit today.
    Everything on your table is so beautifully displayed and your table is gorgeous. I too love using a lot of white in decorating my home, partly due to the fact that most of my windows are facing north and I need to make my rooms look as bright and warm as possible.
    have a blessed sunday

  10. Good Morning:
    I have discovered another wonderful blogsite. It is lovely and I love what you did to that sad little bench. I also love your setting with the mirror, greenery and religious figure.

  15. Hi Lori,
    Thank you for choosing The Blue Farmhouse! I never take for granted the inspiration others may find and express in my blog. It never ceases to amaze me that although miles apart our worlds are so much alike in these things, family, faith, home, antiques, thrifting, thrifting, and more thrifting! I look forward to sharing with a friendship of giving and receiving.

  27. Love the stool re-do! We'll check back often to see more of your creative inspiration! Thanks for visiting us.

  28. Found your blog via the Blog Hop. I’m your newest GFC follower!

  29. Lori, it's sad to see that someone does not follow the rules of the blog hop! The meaning of the blog hop is to meet new bloggers and make new friends, right?
    I did it from my side but you didn't return the love, even though I emailed you and reminded it to you in a polite way! Anyway, hope this whole thing is just a misunderstanding and that just forgot to follow back! If that's the case then hop on over and I'll be glad to be friends, as I really like your blog. Otherwise, in case you deliberately do not want to follow my blog,
    even though you joined the Blog Hop then unfortunately I'll be forced to unfollow yours!

    1. Hi Olga
      Yes the whole thing is a misunderstanding my only way of receiving messages on this computer is threw my blog I am not able to receive emails...However I would be happy to follow you in return... I hope you get this reply...Blessing being sent your way...Lori

  30. I love your beautiful vingette and that little stool is the perfect finishing touch. Love how you've added the greenery.
    Thanks for the suggestions on my wall shelf. I found some ironstone platters that I had put away, hung them up and I'll be showing a new pic soon.

  32. Such a peaceful, calming vignette. Adorable stool!
