Use What’s On Hand!
Evergreen in Elegant Urn
Ornaments in Glass Cylinder
White Roses & Ironstone
This Lenox bowl is not only one of my favorite holiday pieces to pull out of storage each year, it’s my favorite gift idea. So many uses, and the price makes it easy to give!
Understated & Pale
Calm & Coastal Christmas
One Christmas, I went for a more beachy white look with candles in “sand” (I had whole wheat flour on hand so I used that in lieu of sand since we’re in the landlocked Midwest!) and a big ironstone bowl of conch shells.
I love how Christmas ornaments mingle with treasures from the sea.

When I spied a few of the slashed prices on a few beautiful Cottage, Farmhouse & Coastal Style Furniture pieces online, they were too enticing not to share. I have gathered a collection of awesomely priced furniture finds I thought you design savvy bargain shoppers might particularly whistle at. The furniture and decor pieces fall under the category of traditional design style while they also reflect a casual, unfussy, neutral mood.

Cottage, Farmhouse & Coastal Style Furniture
Should you not be in the market for any of these traditional pieces, join me at the finish line for something special…a different flavor of CLASSIC… very special musical artist whom I idolized as a young girl talks about no longer performing.
One of My Favorite White Slipcovered Sofas of All Time!
For starters, I noticed one of my favorite sofas (a white slipcovered beauty) went on sale. FYI, this particular sofa goes out of stock regularly.
This Fairchild sofa is the very same one designer Sarah Richardson chose for her rustic media room in her family’s own home in Ontario.
The sofa easily works with rustic decor as well as with more elegant pieces in a French country style space:
Is This the Wood Side Table You’ve Been Searching For?
I love the traditional coastal vibe of this sculptural pedestal side table made of solid teak which at only 24″ in diameter will work in small spaces and blend with any number of traditional styles! Teak is so pricey, and if you’re lucky enough to snag this baby when it’s on sale…VICTORY BARGAIN DANCE TIME!
The table comes in additional finishes as well like grey.
Entry, Mud Room, or Anywhere Storage That Only Looks Custom
If you have ever sought a bid for custom built-ins from a carpenter, then you know how expensive any sort of storage unit for books, backpacks, or display can be. Here’s a ready-made option that adds architectural interest and character even as it helps to stow everyday essentials.
A Smart Wall Sconce for Under $40
It’s so interesting to me that frequently I am searching for a fixture which has simple clean lines and a straightforward design, and it’s nowhere to be found in a sea of overly ornate or complicated designs. Here’s an exception.
Here you can see the sconce inverted for a different look:
The sconce’s style is versatile enough to go in any number of spaces like an entry:

I thought the lines on this upholstered panel bed were graceful and pretty enough to work in a number of bedrooms whether its French country, Belgian, or French Nordic style that rocks your world.
A timeless quilt like this won’t ever fall from favor!
Distressed Washed Oak Finish!
Thank goodness we are beginning to see more of the more natural, scrubbed raw wood look that works so well with more rustically inclined designs and spaces. Here’s an unfussy console table with an attractive metal base that could work in any number of spaces since it is airy and less than 14″ deep.
Spring Color for a Bedroom, Anyone?
I love aqua, and I this bedding with its muted tones, struck me as feeling very French farmhouse and cottage lovely.
Casual Cottage Style Stripes
This chair brought back memories for me! We owned a French country settee for years which was upholstered in what appears to be this exact fabric! And those little cottage style feet! The very same ones on my old settee.

An Interview With Linda Rondstadt, an artist living with Parkinson’s Disease…
I just love her honesty and the thoughts shared about why she never married! Ha! I’m holding Linda in my heart right now and whispering a prayer. Should you also have a moment, let’s lift her up.
If you’re a fan of her music, join me in listening/watching this powerful performance:
That song takes me back!
