And, I share my home and DIY projects over at DaisyMaeBelle.

{Named after my 3 Southern girls: Daisy, Anna Belle and Lila Mae.}

Summer Front Porch @ DaisyMaeBelle

I love for friends to stop by.

So, I’d love it if you’d stop by for real sometime…

My Foyer @ DaisyMaeBelle

I’d tell you about the rusty gate that was in a store on our square forever

marked with the dreaded words;

“for display only.”

And, how one day the owner actually decided to sell it.

And, how I couldn’t grab it up quick enough.

My Dining Room @ DaisyMaeBelle

I’d tell you about the 100 year old door that I found at a yard sale for $10.

And, how I almost did cartwheels right there in the driveway.

And, how I never knew I wanted an old door,

until I started visiting so many beautiful homes in blog world…

My Dining Room @ DaisyMaeBelle

I’d tell you about this hutch that I found at a yard sale 13 years ago,

and how I’ve painted it twice,

and am already thinking how beautiful it would be

painted in a pale green…

Family Room @ DaisyMaeBelle

I’d show you our family room.

Where every wall is a gallery wall.

Because, I just like the way walls look when they’re full.

Family Room @ DaisyMaeBelle

And, about how I found this amazing lamp at a yard sale

along with those candlesticks.

And, how brass is finding its way back into my decorating heart

Family Room @ DaisyMaeBelle

I’d tell you about that birdcage hanging on the wall.

I saw it in one of my favorite stores on the square,

and I told my husband about how it was one of the most beautiful things I’d ever seen,

and about how I would’ve bought it

if I had any room for it.

And, how the next morning it was waiting for me in the kitchen,

with a note that said how much he loved me and

that not having enough room

had never stopped me before 🙂

Family Room @ DaisyMaeBelle

I’d tell you about one of my 6 flying pigs.

I just can’t resist them.

My Kitchen @ DaisyMaeBelle

I’d show you our kitchen

and tell you about how I finally got to replace our 20 year old “white” linoleum.

And, how I wanted the new floor to be the color of dirt.

Because with 3 kiddos and a golden retriever,

this floor sees its fair share of dirt.

And, I don’t like to mop…

My Kitchen @ DaisyMaeBelle

I’d tell you about these dishes that I found at Goodwill.

(Yes, they are the Ballard Designs dishes!)

My Kitchen @ DaisyMaeBelle

And, about how I found these 3 ironstone platters there as well.

Family Room @ DaisyMaeBelle

I’d tell you about the other time

I almost did cartwheels right in the driveway

at another yard sale

when I spotted this huge metal piece.

(They said that it came off of the side of an old building in Kentucky.)

Family Room @ DaisyMaeBelle

I’d tell you about how I can’t leave anything the same for too long.

Like this little glass top table for instance…

How to Make a Standing Wreath @ DaisyMaeBelle

Just got a new look with this standing wreath I made.

Backyard Fire Pit @ DaisyMaeBelle

And, after I’d told you so much about my house.

I’d want you to tell me all about yours. 🙂

I’d build us a fire,

and we could talk all night… 🙂

Thank you so much for visiting with us today and sharing your beautiful home, I would love to sit around the fire with you! Stop by and say hello to Melissa, promise you won’t be disappointed!

  1. I think Melissa is a jewel! I love her gracious southern hospitality. Thank you for spotlighting her. I’m off to visit NOW. I like her style, and am impressed that she has a thoughtful husband who appreciates the beautiful home she has created.

  2. Every time I see pictures of Melissa’s home I see something else I love. Her home is very welcoming and boy how I’d love to be able to have a cup of tea/coffee out under those lights in her yard, have a long chat. I feel very fortunate to have gotten to know Melissa somewhat and would love to meet her in person. Wish we still lived in western KY so that would be more of a possibility. Melissa deserves the loving gesture her hubs made by gifting her as he did. Happy late summer, the days are waning.

  3. I loved this tour! Melissa seems like a “good” friend already. Her home is gorgeous. Thanks so much for sharing! I’m off to visit her blog.

  4. What a lovely home and so many stories and memories of each piece she has collected. Melissa has done a beautiful job. The gallery wall with the gold frames is so pretty. I love that her hubby brought home the birdcage for her…so sweet!
