  1. Your shelves are gorgeous Lora! Thanks so much for sharing the rule of 3 – it will make styling shelves a lot easier in the future! Thank you so much for sharing this with us at Farmhouse Friday!

      Your welcome, Michelle! Glad you enjoyed it!

    One of the things I enjoy about your blogs is “us” Midwesterners (I’m in SD) have a lot of the same junk. Looking at your Fall bookcase display, I have the granny quilt, the tree book, wood boxes, the glass jar in gold, and bird pics so always love seeing how you incorporate all into a great display. Thank you always for the great ideas.

      So true, Luane! That’s why my grandma (who taught me the true art of thrifting) encouraged to always go to thrift stores when you’re traveling different parts of the country…totally different stuff!

  3. I’m too busy crafting for our bazaar in 2 weeks to worry miuch about decor It’s awful–I start picking up stuiff that needs to be organized–find a forgotten treasure and think, “Oh, I could make —- out of that. And picking up gets dropped in favor of crafting. I liked your rule of 3s–when I make dried/silk flower arrangements/wreathes, I always use an odd number so it makes sense to do it for decor, too. I put Christmas music on today for the first time–earliest ever. When I was too busy, I just re-played it!

      Oh, the last minute crunch time, Kathy! I remember those days! It’s like your brain is on steroids and you wish your hands could move as fast as your brain. Good luck!
