Found: Must Have Baby Item

When you’re pregnant you hear and read a million different “you must have these items” lists upon lists before your baby arrives.

News: My Modern Farmhouse Chandelier

One of the very first things I bought during renovations was a chandelier for above our giant 8 foot harvest table. I knew once we took out the walls on the main floor that I wanted the living space to have a light, airy feel. I didn’t want anything really heavy hanging in the air…
