  17. Beautiful pictures! I love the trunk! I am using an old whiskey barrel cut in half and covered in leather as my coffee table in my family room. I bought it at an estate sale many years ago. I just saw baby's breath mentioned on one of the morning shows to decorate with:)

    Enjoy your day!

  18. I love the trunk. I really love that the wood looks a bit bleached, so many are dark but this is light and airy like your room.
    I am waiting to see what you add.

  27. Feed sacks do tug at me, even though they aren't in bright colors. Just the vintage farmhouse feel of them make my heart go pitter-patter.
