where do i even start? the weekend joy and i spent in kansas was nothing less than amazing. maybe it was because i needed it more than i realized? i have definitely been feeling a lack of inspiration lately, and i was like a dry sponge. i was able to soak up meg’s house and just absorb all i could. i am definitely visually stimulated and i am so happy when things are aesthetically pleasing so this house was a treat for me. ok, enough rambling, just see for yourself.
years ago, before i even read meg’s blog, i stumbled upon pictures of her house. which i poured over. and made sean look at, too.
i loved loved loved the idea of putting globes above my kitchen cabinets. i put my thrift-store-loving mom on that task and she met the challenge!
anyway, i love meg’s kitchen. i mean look at that island! i thought mine was huge and her’s is twice as big!
i spent a lot of time at this coffee station. morning. afternoon. evening. after midnight. a lot of time ;)
with all of kimberlee’s amazing cooking, i didn’t need those big red letters telling me to “EAT” , but they sure are cute!
2 gigantic tables smacked up together for one HUGE dining table!
filled with a rainbow of colorful chairs and happy bunting strung across the room
all the happy colors were so inspiring! as soon as i got home i started rearranging my house!
each of the bedrooms were filled with cozy beds, outfitted with vintage quilts or chenille coverlets.
and each bed was topped with a fluffy towel. staying at meg’s for craft weekend was better than staying at a hotel. it felt like home. but without all the responsibilities!
i loved all the light pouring into each of the rooms. the brightness fooled you into thinking it wasn’t 15* outside!
painted furniture, bright lamps, fun quilts, and a collection of hoop art = happy
i love the idea of recovering lampshades in awesome fabric!
chippy furniture is my favorite!
i love this bathroom! honeycomb tiles, striped curtain, a pink chippy chair.
have you noticed all the katie daisy prints around the house? if i had more wall space i think i would own half of her shop!
this garland is such a crazy mix of random!
happiest bed in the house. turquoise with bits of red in the quilt :)
this was a new piece of furniture for meg and i got to help fill it with craft supplies!
meg has a pretty awesome stash of fabric that we all used for our ruffled aprons. there was something for everyone there!
i love this paper doily and ruffled trim bunting!
the snack station
aaaand the craft room. the crazy long craft room.
all the wonderful goodies from the sponsors (more on these in a couple days!)
a room filled with bunting and artwork and party lights is a great place for inspiration
the second day we cleared off the buckets of fabric and filled the tables with paint and canvases for the crafts that joy and i taught.
all of the ladies at craft weekend were so fun and so nice. and crafty!
joy taught all the ladies how to make wooden signs
these ladies were hard workers, crafting into the wee hours of the night.
here’s the craft i taught – i loved everyone’s take on my “inspired canvas“!
saturday we went thrifting for a few hours – this store was awesome!
quilts upon quilts upon quilts. i almost bought one but instead brought home a globe and some ball jars.
joy brought home one of the woodgrain breadboxes home… as a carry-on! we had some good laughs about that.
i have been eyeing this same huge scale at a local shop. of course its not for sale, but i still want it. if it weren’t for the large price tag and the small luggage size, this would’ve come home with me.
this was such special time for joy and i!
and then we went to the barn – totally up my alley. if it weren’t freezing cold. sooooo icy cold!
i would’ve loved to bring home this cement deer to put in my yard!
pink & aqua sinks, be still my heart!
again, if only i had my uhaul with, these would be home with me.
thank you meg and kimberlee for giving me what i didn’t even know i needed! thank you to all the ladies, fellow crafters, for inspiring me to think beyond my box. thank you joy, for helping me check off an item on my bucket list!
