You may remember from a few weeks ago that I wrote about the chance to win a $350 store credit to Polder’s Old World Market to purchase your own set of wooden spoons and chef utensils (winner announced at the end of this post)! Their beautiful hand carved spoons and spurtles possess elements that I love about farmhouse style. There’s just something about simple, handmade items for the home that tug at my heart strings. Here’s a few more reasons why I love farmhouse style …
Here’s my clapboard farmhouse with flowering baskets on a warm summer day. It’s not fancy, but it’s comfortable and practical … and it possesses architectural elements that really appeal to me.
Homespun textiles and vintage table linens are an essential of the farmhouse dining room. An added bonus is that you can find vintage items for little money at thrift shops and flea markets.
Since most farm families grow into their homes when they have children, every inch of space is utilized. Under the eaves bedrooms that were sometimes part of the attic are turned into sleeping quarters. I love the cozy appeal that slanted ceilings provide. More homemade textiles grace the bed in the form of a wedding quilt.
And now I’ve added a new element of farmhouse style to my kitchen with these beautiful hand carved chef utensils from Polder’s Old World Market.
Congratulations to Jan S who has won her own choice of utensils from Polder’s in the amount of $350!! An email has been sent with instructions for claiming the prize!
