Happy Fall // Our Living Room

Happy Fall y'all!! 🍁🍂🌻

This is the first Fall in our farmhouse and we couldn't be more excited!! It's just so beautiful here and every day we find ways to appreciate it even more! We are blessed and excited to show you all our Fall decor soon! Right now we have an array of pumpkins on our front porch just waiting to be rearranged. 

We scooped up these gorgeous sunflowers the other day. I loved making this bouquet. More and more I have learned the less perfect the better. I threw in the leafy green and set it in my favorite antique vase. It really made the living room so homey. The linen and white pillows are from my favorite @joliemarche! They are super comfy and easy to wash! The tray is from Target, and curtains from West Elm. That Anthropologie candle smells like heaven and I would buy one for every room if I could! 

The beautiful painting is by one of our favorite artists, @deannart! We got it right before our move and it has such sentimental value. Things have changed so much since then and it just keeps getting better. We look forward to showing you so much more Fall decor soon!!  

When that warm light shines in and fills your soul. Golden hour is so good. ✨

Front Porch Living // Our Vintage Farmhouse

And just like that, we have new furniture on our front porch! It's amazing really. For months and months I searched for the perfect furniture for the front porch. I wanted something with clean lines and easy around the farmhouse. We are so happy with how everything turned out.

Freshen Up Your Dining Room // Our Vintage Farmhouse

Sarah Hollingshead3 Comments

Hey y'all!!  Look at those sweet little feet! Harper loves dancing on our new rug. She is breaking it in and breaking it down. 😜 Yes, I went there! Haha!  

Are you looking to freshen your dining room and give it a new crisp look? If so, then a new rug is the answer! You have to see the before and after to really tell the difference. We got this rug from LOLOI and it's the Ella Rose rug, part of the Magnolia Home collection by Joanna Gaines! Her collection is so dreamy and I adore her farmhouse style! Fixer Upper is my favorite show!! Y'all know I have been huge fans of LOLOI for quite a while now! I got one of their rugs in my kitchen and have been hooked ever since. 

This rug has a major vintage feel and is timeless! I love it!  It's crazy how a rug can bring a room together. The colors are even more vibrant in person. Think about the look and feel you are trying to achieve. I go for the a cozy feel. I want warm inviting colors. After our dining room chairs come in, we plan on spending so much time in here together! Imagine family meals and big parties, finger painting and playdoh castles. 

   This is the before! 🙌🏻

 

This is the before! 🙌🏻

 

 

This is the after!! ❤️❤️❤️  It's crazy how much difference a rug makes. It feels so homey now.

This Pep Rally Is For You! // Our Vintage Farmhouse Real Talk

Sarah Hollingshead2 Comments

Who doesn't love a good pep rally?

I got most school spirited in high school and cheering people up and inspiring them is my jam. This pep rally is for YOU!

 

It all starts with being grateful.  

Isn't gratitude a wonderful thing? It makes you feel good just even saying it. Starting every morning with a grateful heart is everything. Don't get me wrong, on the hard days it's tough to find what you are grateful for but find it anyways. This gives you a strong foundation. 

Isn't gratitude a wonderful thing? It makes you feel good just even saying it. Starting every morning with a grateful heart is everything. Don't get me wrong, on the hard days it's tough to find what you are grateful for but find it anyways. This gives you a strong foundation. 

Choosing joy and changing your mindset are the first steps in being truly successful in life. People will break you down and tell you what you can't do. They may even think because good things are coming your way that you think you're better than them now. People change and so do you. If your friends are holding you down, move up. Your circle gets smaller on the way up. Hang around people you want to be like, people that motivate you to be the better you. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life. It's up to you to listen or not. People will judge you for being different. That is on them, not you. You are special and you shouldn't live your life because you are trying to make so and so happy! Make you happy first! 

image.jpg

It took me a long time to realize that other's opinions of me don't matter! I matter! You know what, you matter too. I still fall into that trap sometimes when people write some negative comments on my pictures. Decide to not let that outside noise cloud your focus. You can't make everyone happy. Life is what you make it and I have struggles just like anyone else. I'm a single mom but that doesn't define me. It's just my current situation. I don't use it as an excuse either. If anything, it motivates me to push harder! Choosing to stay stuck in your struggles and not doing anything about it is what it is, a choice. What are you going to choose today? 

image.jpg

Make a conscious decision to choose joy and if your day sucks, play some fun music and shake it until you break it, maybe even pour a glass of wine and sit on your porch. Get a gym membership and go work out!! Working out will make you feel so good and look good too! Go do something for someone else and see how it changes your mood. 

image.jpg

BUT PLEASE for the love of God, please don't let other people tell you what you can and can't do ! ! 

This is your life. 

If you don't give it all you got you're just cheating yourself. 🙌🏻 

Look back and think of all the accomplishments you have made in life! Listen, the best is yet to come if you just believe and work hard, really hard! 

Put the time in. Make goals. Be around the best people you can be around. Spend more time laughing than crying and blaming others. You have the conscious decision to turn it around in a split second and not look back.  

Work hard. Work hard to achieve your goals. You have to work. No one is going to do it for you. Push yourself and utilize your recourses to benefit you now and in the future. Work as many hours as you need. Nothing comes easy. 

Pray. God is amazing and will never ever forsake you. God is a safe place. 

Dream. Dream HUGE! I mean it. God has blessed me so much and sheltered me through so many storms. Many of my dreams have already came true with God guiding me and keeping faith that in time it will happen. Dream wild crazy dreams!! This is your life. 

Believe. Believe in yourself and keep your faith strong. You have so much power at your finger tips. Ideas are free and will make you money! You don't have to have money to make it. You just need to start with one idea and believe! 

image.jpg

Help others. That is my favorite thing. Helping others is everything. More good comes to you when you give and don't stop loving.

Love. My heart hasn't hardened. I still believe in love !! The kind that knocks you to your feet it's so amazing. Love your people and love them hard, but most importantly, LOVE YOURSELF!!  

I love you all!! Hope this pep talk finds you well and gets your bootie in gear! 

You got this!! You are awesome!  

Sending lots of love, 

XOXO  

Sarah Elizabeth

Thank You Country Living Magazine!! // Our Vintage Farmhouse

You guys! My mind is still blown right now! I can't even believe that Country Living Magazine included us with such amazing bloggers!! We are beyond honored to be featured!! 

 

 

Country Living's Blog post is titled "21 Talented Bloggers That Deserve Their Own HGTV Show!!!" You can find it here! Thank you for your sweet words about Harper and all the above! 

 

Ok, so if that wasn't crazy enough... Cosmopolitan picked up the article (click here to see it) and ran with it too!!

I seriously spit my coffee on my computer when someone forwarded it to me, y'all. Bing, checked my mail. Wait for it....COSMO?! Lawd, I am speechless. The fact that people even think we deserve an HGTV show is awesome in itself. If it happens someday, we promise to not disappoint! Decorating, designing and dance parties everywhere. Harper would steal the show, naturally. If you can get past our country twang! Haha! Everyone listed in the article deserves it all and more! It truly is an honor. 

image.jpg

Two years ago, I never would of thought this would be my life. We are just truly thankful, y'all! You've been so good to us. Harper is my driving force. Making her proud is everything to me and having your support is the icing on the cake!! We are just two small town girls living in East Tennessee and thankful for anything coming our way. It has been such a great ride so far!

Big THANK YOU to Country Living Magazine & Cosmopolitan!! 

Have a beautiful day!
XOXO, 

Sarah

Fun In the Sun // Hilton Head 2016

Sarah Hollingshead2 Comments

 

You guys, we went on vacation and it was amazing!! 

We stayed at the Westin Hilton Head Island Resort & Spa and loved every minute of it! 

Get ready for the pictures because we took a ton! The best part of the hotel was that it was so serene we never wanted to even leave. It's hard to get to serene vacationing with a toddler but it totally took me there #serenitynow. I was blown away by how gorgeous everything was, especially the pools and landscaping. 

Just take a look!! 

image.jpg

The lobby was incredibly beautiful!! This plant wall was huge and full of real living plants. We loved it! 

My little beach babe loved the water!   The beach by the hotel was private and made going out to the beach that much more fun!   You couldn't ask for better weather.

You guys, we had the best fourth together. Harper was all smiles at the parade and firework shows! She loved scoring so much candy and just being in the moment. It taught me a lot of just enjoying the now. You can learn so much from children!  I hope you love the pictures & videos. 

 

The love of my life and my best friend! I'm thankful God has blessed me with such a sweet soul to walk through life with. ❤️❤️

Meeting the Hamm's //Oxford,Mississippi

It all started with Instagram... I met Natalie and Tim and we became instant friends. We started messaging each other, texting, calling, Facetiming and then finally met each other after about 10 months! We instantly clicked. A few weeks ago Harper and I drove down to finally meet our new friends. It was incredible. Honestly, it felt like I had known them forever. 

Their gorgeous farmhouse sits in the country! Natalie and her husband built it from the ground up and almost everything in their home is handmade and hand painted! It is unreal!  They have four beautiful children!   You can follow them on Instagram   her e .

Fresh Orange Strawberry Sangria

Sarah Hollingshead8 Comments

Hey y'all! I have partnered with four amazing bloggers to host a progressive dinner! What is a progressive dinner? It's touring five different beautiful homes through their blogs and seeing their delicious foods and drinks that we hope you will recreate in your home. Five bloggers, five homes and five amazing courses! If you guys have had dessert with Jenni, now it's time to have drinks at our farmhouse! We live in East Tennessee, surrounded by acres and acres of farmland. Come inside, kick off your shoes. I am mixing up some delicious drinks just for you guys. We are having Fresh Orange Strawberry Sangria served chilled out on the front porch swing.

What you will need:

8 cups of fresh strawberries, trimmed and halved

1 750 Milliliter bottle white wine such as Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio ( I used Kendall Johnson Sauvignon Blanc)

1 cup of sliced fresh strawberries

2 cups sparkling water, chilled

2-3 sliced oranges

2/3 cups of sugar

1/2 cup of water

 

How to make it: 

1. To prepare syrup, in a large saucepan combine trimmed and halved strawberries, sugar, and water. Bring just to boiling, stirring to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat. Cover and cool to room temperature.

2. Press mixture, a little at a time, through a mesh sieve; discard solids (you should have around 3 cups of syrup) In a 2 quart pitcher, stir together the syrup, wine, and sliced strawberries. Squeeze one to two oranges and stir again. Cover and chill up to 24 hours. 

3. Before serving, stir in the sparkling water. Serve in glasses of orange slices. Enjoy!

The taste is so refreshing!! It is perfect for any party.

I used mason jars and added sliced oranges to the sides. This sweet hand towel is from Anthropologie and the tray is from Target. Everything is sweeter on our swingbed by friend Hammmade Furniture! I added a vintage quilt to the swing. The beautiful pillows are from Jolie Marche.

Rustoleum Cream Chalk Paint

20' of 1/4" rope

Using Our Gifts to Give

Hey y'all!! I'm so glad you came by today to see what's going on at our vintage farmhouse! Harper and I are just now getting over the flu and then a stomach bug! It has been a wild week. 😂 Thankfully we are feeling better!

   We are excited about our friend, Amy Kavelaris's new book! It's called   Bloom with MI, "Using Our Gifts To Give!"   It's a beautiful book that captures the essence of childhood and giving.

It's so inspiring and teaches children how to bloom and help others. She inspires others to create and help others no matter age, race, gender or background. I absolutely love it.  

image.jpg

We really need to help others in any way we see fit! Whether that's giving a helping hand, baking, or just listening. I am blessed to have met many wonderful people in my life and we have all bonded through helping each other in some way, shape, form or fashion. It's important to realize we are all struggling and lend a helping hand.

image.jpg
image.jpg

Creating and painting has always been huge for me. Although I haven't painted in a very long time, I strive for that and need to make more time for it. It's when I truly feel one with God and my soul just breathes. I do paint a lot with Harper but haven't  painting for myself like I used to.

I challenge you to find ways to create more with your babies and friends as well! I will do it with you! Make sure to share this beautiful book with your loves in your life.  It's now one of our favorite books to read together! Have an amazing Friday night!! 

XOXO

It's trending home accessories for a different room in your home every time!! It's genius! These ladies are interior designers and know what people love! You can get an original or exclusive crate! They are super affordable! One is 49.95 and the other is $84.95!
