Mudroom Peek and Gallery Wrapped Canvas Deal

I knew when we moved to our new house in town that I wanted it to keep some farmy vibes. It's who I am. It feels like home.

So even though I went brighter and maybe even nuttier, it has been fun and important to incorporate elements that keep me the same old girl that I've always been.

For example, there was a pile of things that just wouldn't fit in our new digs, but I'd rather eat soggy cereal than leave my beloved windmill blade behind.

We found the perfect spot for it in the mudroom, connecting the garage to the kitchen. Cory made a coat rack for the kids out of a vintage yard stick from Calvin's old school and a few hooks I'd picked up at Junk Evolution a few years back.

Our canvas photo, taken back at the farm, completed the scene. This particular photo has been a perfect reminder to me over the past year or so that we are still who we are. We're a family there and here. We'll always be a little bit country.

This canvas was our first of what I hope will be many. I love the clean look of it and the processing was spectacular. It's such a great way to get some of our photos off the hard drive and up where we can enjoy them.

Good news: Canvas People is offering a  80% off all canvases right now.

Our canvas shown above is 11x14. I'm planning to order an 8x10 this time around (just $10!)... Cute kids or pretty flowers? It's a toss up.  :)  

This is a perfect gift idea for anyone from a grandparent to a teacher. Or, you know, yourself.

Click here to order. It's' super easy.

Now, I'm off to eat a turkey sandwich in honor of today's earlier pre-Thanksgiving festivities.

The next few days loom hectic and hard, but I'm leaning into this season with a ready heart, so thankful for my life and the one who gave it to me.

Happy Thanksgiving Week, Dears.
