Everything You Need from Chip and Joanna’s New Target Line

When I heard about Chip and Joanna’s new Target line, Hearth & Hand™ with Magnolia, it was with mixed feelings.  I was absolutely stoked, because I’m completely obsessed with Target, Magnolia Market and of course, Fixer Upper.  So what is there not to love?  Well… for me, I was devastated to find out that the official launch of the line in stores and online is November 5, 2017.  Unfortunately for me, I will be out of the country on vacation for that whole week.  NOOOOO!!!

Thankfully, I have an amazing mama that loves a good hunt, and she’ll be standing in as my designated shopper.  (She’s the one who deserves all the credit for helping me to build my entire Rae Dunn collection.)  So I’ve scoured Target’s website and reviewed the whole Hearth & Hand™ with Magnolia line so that I could narrow it down to my must-have items.  This will be the wish list I’ll be providing to my mom to hit up our local Target store bright and early on Sunday, November 5.

Here’s everything you need from Chip and Jo’s New Target Line…

6 Ways to Style Spindles

How To Style Spindles

A few weeks ago, I ran into my friend, Kari, at the Main Street Market hosted by Urban Farmgirl in Rockford.  She had purchased a beautiful set of white, chippy spindles from Trove Vintage.    We were chatting about all the fun ways she would be able to style them within her home.  Then LIGHT BULB… it hit me!  What a perfect idea for a blog post.  In the hopes of providing some decor inspiration for your home, here are six ways to style spindles.

Spindles In Dough Bowl

1.  Place within a dough bowl or old toolbox.

If you’re looking for something to fill up a decorative bowl of any kind, you can add in your chippy paint spindles.  You can keep it plain and simple or incorporate other filler as well.

6 Best Farmhouse Rugs on a Budget

Farmhouse Rugs On A Budget

With the chilly weather making an appearance this week, it’s beginning to feel a lot like FALL!  I’ve been craving all things fall in my home from pumpkin decor, flannel blankets and yummy apple-scented candles.  I just want my house to feel as warm and cozy as possible.  One of my decor staples in our living room that makes the space feel extra comfy and welcoming has to be our area rug.  If you’re on the hunt for a new rug, search no more!   I’m sharing with you the 6 best farmhouse rugs on a budget.

1.  allen + roth Briarwick Gray Rectangular Indoor Woven Rug from Lowe’s –  Starting off the list with my official pick of the bunch (See my living room photo above).  This rug is such a great steal for the price.  It’s super soft, and very much on the plush side.  It also comes in a number of different colors.  I can tell you from my own personal experience that it doesn’t shed at all, and it vacuums really well.  I will tell you that the cream color does have some flecks of light yellow string.  But don’t let this freak you out… I actually love it because number one, it hides dirt.  And number two, it creates a warm, creamy tone in the rug.

2.   nuLOOM Geometric Moroccan Bead Pattern Grey/ White Rug from Overstock – I’m obsessed with the pattern on this rug.  I feel like it’s so different than anything I’ve seen before yet versatile enough to work in almost any space.  My friend recently purchased this rug for her bedroom, and it’s just as gorg in person.  I will say that the rug isn’t a true white, definitely more of a cream color.  Also, it’s slightly on the thin side so it might be worth investing in a rug pad for this one.
