I’m the chief eye roller in this house.

But I think my husband may have rolled his that day I said, “Wouldn’t it be nice to have a farm? A pretty barn? And maybe some horses?”

I have no delusions that farm living is easy. I’ve watched enough episodes of Green Acres to know otherwise. But I can’t help but romanticize farm life every time I open up a magazine or visit a favorite blog or do a little window shopping at my favorite home decor shops.

Today I’m indulging my fantasy over at Farmhouse Decor, the online shop owned by my friend, Barb of the blog Everyday Home.

Farmhouse Decor

As part of my 1-year Blogiversary Giveaway Bonanza, Barb is giving away a $25 gift certificate to her online shop to one lucky winner here at Atta Girl Says. To enter, just fill in the Rafflecopter form below.

Atta Girl Says Blogiversary Giveaway Bonanza

Now, let’s decorate Atta Girl Farm with finds from Farmhouse Decor.

French bottle lamp

At night, I’d switch on this French bottle lamp at my bedside and read the classics and pen handwritten notes to my friends and family.

burlap bee stool

This burlap French Bee Stool would be perfect spot for my husband to rest his feet on after a long day of farming.

Invoice Tea Towel

I’d tuck this French receipt tea towel into my apron while I cooked up homemade biscuits, served of course  with butter made from our cows’ milk and homegrown and homemade strawberry jelly.

Farmhouse Decor chalkboard

I’d announce the day’s menu and write little notes of reminder or encouragement on my farmhouse chalkboard.

printer's cabinet

We’d keep track of our bills and other important papers in this printer’s cabinet.

egg cups

Our chickens would keep these numbered egg cups filled.

Milk Bottle Carrier

And our cows would provide us fresh milk daily. plus enough to share with our neighbors. We’d surprise them every morning with an old-fashioned delivery in this wire milk bottle carrier.

Dough bowl

I’d fill this dough bowl with dried lavender grown on our land.

Bottle Drying Rack
With the fresh milk and all the canning I’d be doing, this bottle drying rack would be put to use every day.

Mason Jar Soap Dispenser

And speaking of Mason jars, I’d use one to dispense the all-natural soap  I’d make from our lavender crop.

French laundry cart

I’d collect the wash in this French laundry cart.

Rustic Flower bucket

And while our laundry is drying on the line, I’d walk our acreage, picking fresh flowers to brighten our rooms. Or maybe I’d just drop a bunch in this rusty metal bucket and call it an arrangement.

Wow, I’m getting tired from all this farming shopping. Head on over to Barb’s place, Farmhouse Decor, and scope out her beautiful shop, then come back here and post a comment telling me how you’d spend your the gift certificate if you won.
