Howdy y'all! I'm Ruthie (aka Aunt Ruthie) from Sugar Pie Farmhouse. I'm tickled pink that dear, sweet, adorable Pamela asked me to share "How I Found My Style" with you today. I think this series is sooooo inspiring and I'm honored to be a part of it!
I have to say that decorating my home has always been a passion of mine. I love it because it's fun and it's the perfect creative outlet for me. But most of all I love decorating because I want to provide a cozy place, an "Ahh,-it's-good-to-be-home" kind of place for my hubby and kids. Being a mama of 4 and now a Grammy to 4, my goal has always been to create an atmosphere of love and warmth. I want my house to feel homey and joyful...a place my family wants to be.
|Vintage milk-glass, milk bottles, white enamelware, old silverware...and pie are on the top of my list!|
|Inside the pantry, through the squeaky farmhouse screen door is my itty bitty "General Store".|
|How did you find your style? I would have to say that I've always loved country style. Years ago my style was more like "Country Clutter" but as time has gone by I've decided I want a much simpler look. I'm still working on that. :D|
|Here is our kitchen/Great-room. It truly is the heart of our home.|
Like I said..All-American-Southern-Farmy has a few cows and chickens thrown in! (and 1 pig, top right corner :D) Yee Haw!
|Since the sign is quite heavy it pretty much stays right there, so I just decorate around it for each season.|
|What tips do you have for creating a beautiful home? I really think it starts with our mindset. It's a privilege to be a homemaker! To make warm and cheerful the place that we call home. To bless our loved ones with a cozy atmosphere. A beautiful home starts with love. Fill it with the kinds of things you love...to hug the hearts of those you love. I think when we take the time to beautify our home by keeping it clean and adding our special homey touches it sends a message of love to our family. A message that will warm their hearts all their life. How wonderful is that?! Another tip is to celebrate life in each season through our decorating! I'm so thankful God gave us four seasons in which to add fresh joy and beauty into our homes. On my blog, Sugar Pie Farmhouse, I love opening up my home to share my Fall Home Tour and my Christmas Home Tour. Decorating for Spring, Summer, Fall and Christmas just makes a home look and feel happy. All 4 kids of mine have told me how wonderful and magical it was coming home from school to find that I'd started decorating the house for the holidays. I love that they loved that!!|
|I also love creating little vignettes...little scenes that tell a story. Chickens and eggs...waiting for Springtime.|
|So, darlin's, there you have it...|
|I want to thank Pamela so much for inviting me here today to share all of my cows, chickens, and all things "Farmy" with y'all for -How I Found My Style- Sundays!|
Please feel free to come on by and say Howdy over at my blog Sugar Pie Farmhouse! And come join me on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter!
God Bless your darlin' heart,
|Thank you ever so much for taking the time to stop by and share with us today Ruthie!|
