Aloha and Maholo! Since I just returned home from vacation to Kauai I am finding that I am still in a bit of a Hawaiian mode.
What a wonderful time we had and I can’t wait to share some of it with you.
First of all I want to say how much I have missed visiting my blog friends. A lot can happen in a weeks time in the land of blog.
This morning I started the yearly ritual of putting away the Halloween décor and bringing out the Thanksgiving.
I have a few blog friends that decorate in the Farmhouse style. I adore it and feel that it gives such a down home feel.
I wanted some of that feel in my kitchen. To me nothing says farm style more than checkered fabric.
That was the inspiration for my “Farmhome Style” Thanksgiving table decor.
Look at my darling, Hannah in her black and white checkered dress. She rests against a farm scale holding a couple of new found vintage Pyrex bowls.
Love that hat!
A few kitchen gadgets.
No farm kitchen would be complete without a pitcher for cream, some country biscuits, and a handy egg beater.
And let’s not forget the sifter and tart tins.
All of my vintage treasures are either thrift, estate sale, or yard sale finds.
The stem on this checkered pumpkin makes it look as though it was plucked fresh from the garden.
However, I doubt it will make it into a pumpkin pie.
I added a faux cabbage, a few more tart tins, and a vintage timer. All tucked in amongst the ruffled burlap.
Another glance at those checks that us farm girls all love. I know, I know, I am not really a farm girl. A gal can dream, can’t she?
Now I want to share with you one of my favorite things about Kauai.
Roosters and chickens. They run wild everywhere on the island. I just kept snapping pics of them. You would have thought that I had never seen a chicken or rooster before. lol!
Now it doesn’t get any more farm style than that!
There is a legend as to how the chickens got there. But basically the reason that there are so many is that they don’t have any natural predators to downsize them. Not even snakes, which surprised me. I just assumed there would be snakes amongst that tropical paradise.
I’ll leave you with this picture that made me laugh. It looks as though this rooster is looking at that sign and wondering if he weighs too much. Hee-hee!
I will be partying with these fun gals:
