White Flower Farmhouse


I received a package on my doorstep yesterday from White Flower Farmhouse.

The first day I stumbled upon their website, the words "Simple Country Style" on their front page immediately made me feel at home...



Inside my package, were the vintage theater marquee letters I ordered...which spell out one of my favorite words...

(Marquee letters= $4.00 each)

Here's a photo from their website, WhiteFlowerFarmhouse.com, showing the letters too:



Also nestled inside the box was the driftwood sailboat I ordered...



And I can honestly say, it's my favorite thing in the whole house right now! :-)



From the little navy flag on top...



...to the perfect piece of driftwood on the bottom...

The ticking stripe fabric makes me smile everytime I walk by it. :-)

(Driftwood sailboat= $22.00)

And if those two treasures weren't enough, I also found this little fish, tucked inside the box as well...



This is a photo from their website, showcasing some of their fish and some of their sailboats together...GORGEOUS!

And last, but certainly not least, I was also happily surprised to find these vintage glass pieces, and a lavendar-filled pouch in the box as well...


I just recently started collecting small, old clear glass jars and vases, so these little guys are a welcome addition to my, so far, tiny collection. I love them!

And lavendar just happens to be my favorite scent, so I was very happy to receive that as well.

Thank you so much Megan and Lori...you two do such a wonderful job of making the world a even more beautiful and inspiring place to live!

I'm in love with that sailboat too! Although, everything is just beautiful.

I have one of those letters in my kitchen (that I found at a flea market). I had no idea what it's original purpose was until now.

Thanks for the great info about the shop!

How fun! Such lovely stuff Layla! The ticking stripe fabric on your sailboat reminds me of the bedding in my nephew's bedroom in my house, I love it! There is just something special and nostalgic about ticking stripe!

Question unrelated to the post:

Do you wash your drop cloths before you use them as curtains, b/c they have an ODD smell!

Just curious if they shrink up or anything.

Seeing as you like the sea inspired look I thought I would tell you about something you may or may not like. In the Everything's on Sale catalog from Victorian Trading Company, on page 57 is a lamp and it is called bathing beauties. I would think you could type this into their search on victoriantradingco.com and see what I am talking about.

Oh they look so lovely!!!
They're giving such a breezy relaxed feeling while you look at them!

Happy Monday!
