{october 21} happy corners of our home

these letters and this print have found themselves in many happy corners of our home throughout the last few years.

now they reside in the playroom next to a thrifted light from our 2014 trip to kamiah.

dogs and words have a prominent place in all happy corners of our home.

my newest addition to my barn owl primitives collection has found a home in our kitchen.

this way, we see it first thing in the morning, all day long, and before we head upstairs to bed.

{october 15} happy corners of our home

this corner isn’t IN our home…it’s in the backyard.

it’s the playhouse that my dad and i built for the kids last march.

i still have some work to do out there (painting), but it has been such a happy space for the kids and their friends to play in all spring and summer!

{october 14} happy corners of our home

my globe collection.

it has to be one of my very happiest corners of our home.

i recently moved this barn owl primitives sign from a different corner of our home to this spot near the craft table.

i think this is the perfect spot for it!

{october 13} happy corners of our home

our playroom used to be filled with vintage fisher price.

while i loved that version of our playroom, we quickly grew out of it. it was fun while it lasted.

i still have most of what i collected during that time period, and have it scattered throughout the house.

the kids still play with it once in a while, and it is always a hit when younger kids come to our home, so i keep a bucket filled with the smaller pieces and the kids pull the larger pieces off of shelves when they want to play with them.

a friend who lives down the street was getting rid of some things.

she knows me well and had a great pile of stuff for me to go through.

this old painted rake head had to come home with me.

it’s the perfect place to hang all of my favorite jewelry!october 12

the kids’ bathroom needs some major work…that we will get to eventually.

for now, i make it happy with bright DIY vintage artwork.

i bought inexpensive colored frames at ikea and target and put in sight word cards, and a vintage map puzzle.

i backed them with scrapbook paper!

i also like to use towel hooks instead of towel racks. it’s easier for the kids to hang their towels up!

this little corner on baby girl’s dresser makes me happy.

the little girl reminds me of her.

the lampshade reminds me of some crewel work chairs my parents had when i was growing up.

and, baby girl has stacked her favorite books here.
