visiting the yorkshire dales in england

I’m having a lovely time showing my moseyman where I’m originally from – the Yorkshire Dales (England), even though we just lost to Italy in today’s Euro Cup match!

Here are a few photos from our trip so far. Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!

This is a Bolton Abbey sheep. Doesn’t he look like he’s ready for a wool cut?

Here’s me walking through Malham Cove. All the streams had very strong currents that day since it rained for a straight 24-hours the day before!

I just loved this picture of the moody cows and the moody skies.

Hipster bull came to greet us at our car while driving back from from our hike!

I’m always on the lookout for beautiful pieces of furniture. I mostly just love to look though. Here are a few of my favorite pinned chairs this week.

Love the shape of this beautiful mint barstool

DIY entryway table idea

Ever since we moved into our new apartment, I’ve been on a DIY kick. We made this coat rack with matching bench for the entry way and now I’m thinking of trying this cute, affordable DIY sideboard update. What do you think? Do you go through DIY phases?

BEFORE: cheap Ikea sideboard

AFTER: painted & well styled Ikea sideboard

perfect short wedding dress

Sometimes I find dresses that make me want to get married all over again. Does this ever happen to you?
So if Moseyman and I were to have our elopement in Cypress all over again, or even throw another wedding party, this dress would definitely be a contender.

this week’s favorite living room pins

While waiting for the novelty of Pinterest to wear off, here are a few of my favorite living room pins this week.

1. I have an ongoing obsession with Emily Henderson and her inspiring thrifty styling.

2. I’m into the floating storage and casually framed wall peeking out behind the sitting area of this living room.

3. Feeling the warmth of the light shining through the pretty linen curtain panel. It creates the coze in that reading nook.

4. So small, so white and so cute. This living room tells me weird shaped spaces can work out really well.

I’m still pinning like a crazy person – constantly looking for new, beautiful ideas to fill our new home with. Here are my favorite bedroom pins this week.

DIY coat rack

It has been a busy weekend so far. Yesterday Moseyman and I trekked out to the lumber store and picked up some wood so I could start working on some projects for our entryway. As Apartment Diet would say… “start with a corner.” So I picked the corner where our coat hook and bench would go.

Today I worked on our DIY coat rack. I bought some wood that would make a pretty backboard, then asked the nice hardware store worker to cut my wooden dowel into 5 3″ pieces to make ‘hooks’ or ‘pegs’ as I call them.

Once I sanded, glued and screwed everything together, I painted the tips of the pegs with orange-red acrylic paint and voila!

It’s a start right? Next project coming up… the DIY bench!

and the decorating begins…

Happy weekend everyone! What are your plans?¬†Moseyman and I are going to try to make some headway on making our new apartment feel more like a home. Tonight we hung the loooong white linen curtains in our new living room and bedroom. They still need curtain rings so they slide more easily but it’s great to have something up finally! I can’t wait to keep going with the rest of the house!
