I have a feeling that every last person reading this sentence is a Pinterest junkie …

I really think, after Google, it’s become one of the greatest, most used tools on the internet. It truly has revolutionized our lives – the way we cook, the way we clean, the way we parent, the way we decorate – thanks to Pinterest, we’ve got all sorts of new ideas, new inspiration right at our fingertips. And, thanks to all of the talented folks behind all of those pins, we feel more ready than ever to take it all on!

I could (and often do) spend hours scrolling through it all.

Sometimes I’m on a mission for something specific – a particular recipe or DIY tutorial. But, oftentimes I simply find myself scrolling my home feed for those random pins that will leave me feeling inspired.

The thing is, in this time of technology, we often forget about some of the more traditional sources of inspiration. I mean, when was the last time you picked up a book or magazine filled with beautiful projects and images to inspire yourself?

Friends, flipping through this beautiful book put together by my sweet friend Liz of Love Grows Wild was not only inspiring, it was an eye-opening introduction to a huge avenue of inspiration that I’d all but ignored.

Having been a long-time admirer of Liz and her lovely blog, I couldn’t resist picking up a copy of her new book A Touch of Farmhouse Charm.

I’ve loved her farmhouse style for ages now and have felt inspired by so many of her incredible projects through the last few years like this beautiful milk can coffee table or that incredible bench that she created from an old door…

I couldn’t wait to flip through her brand new book and friends, it did not disappoint!

Even in a world with millions of ideas floating around Pinterest, right at my fingertips, I found 70 beautiful projects I’d never come across before, all in beautiful farmhouse style.

With every project she’s shared both on her blog and now in this beautiful book, I’ve fallen more in love with each room in her home, so I particularly appreciated the way she’s broken each project up by room, sharing how she’s put each one to work to bring all that charm and beauty to her own farmhouse.

With a detailed step-by-step tutorial and the most perfectly styled photos, I found myself wanting to make each and every one!

In fact, the very next day I was feeling so inspired, I decided to create these pretty vintage wooden spools…

Just as her beautiful blog has always been a huge source of inspiration for me, this book is so full of lovely ways to bring the farmhouse style I love so much into my own home. I know it will be something I pick up and refer back to for years to come!

Wishing you SUCH a lovely day!
