I have a soft spot for country homes, especially ones in Iowa (where I was born.) The homeowners of this 1923 Craftsman bungalow spent 8 months renovating their home featured in CountryHome magazine. They wanted to maintain the house’s Craftsman style but give it a lighter look, which they accomplished by tearing down walls, adding windows, and bringing in white tiles and paint. And plenty of breezy, beautiful blue! You know what's cool?? The owner said everything from windows to countertops to flooring came from their local Home Depot, including some great special orders. I love it! See more photos, including what it looked like before, right over here!

I'm thrilled today to be a guest blogger over at my friends Chris Ann and Kristin's blog LoveFeast Table. Actually it's their fabulous newly redesigned blog! In celebration of their launch, they asked me to be a guest at their table and share with their readers about my blogging journey and love for turquoise. Moreover they are giving away a breathtaking Turquoise Tree of Life Necklace designed and handmade by Liz Oie. You won't want to miss out on your chance to win here!
