Country Roads Bliss

Just another day doing what I love.... the pure bliss of display...


burlap dreams...



Using what I love to work with...



making my heart pitter patter...










doesn't that make you want to have a picnic

with a loved one...







more rust and salvaged goods



my gratitude overflows to

Lisa Moran at Bilancia Designs

who blessed my heart this week...



And to all of the ladies

I will be doing my birthday giveaway later this week

with my sweet mama drawing the lucky winner

my love to you

xoxo

It's Just Me said...

Ya know Ms. Kate, it's just a shame I don't live closer to you. That chair would be smuggled in the passenger side of my lil' Miata. Just GOR-JUS. Wanna come to Florida and set up some prettiness in MY home? Happy almost birthday my dear friend : )

Hi Kate,
Thank you for your beautiful visit! words cannot express in what ways you inspire, life measures one's strength in all we do with it, your life is full with all you create and all the hearts you touch.
Your music list is one of the very examples in how you move a heart! I had this song on my play list along with some of her other songs about a year ago! you have reminded me of how I miss her soulful messages in song!

Kate your shop looks fabulous and I know I would go crazy being inspired by all you stage peacefully aged :)

See you and all you inspire soon.
xx
~Cheers

Thank you, Kate...
I LOVE your unique style...just gorgeous...and you seem to display it effortlessly.
I wish we lived closer--I'd constantly be making you dismantle your stunning booth as I carry out all the lovely pieces to MY car! :) :)
You are a very talented lady...
Have a beautiful week,
Lisa xo

Ido said...

How beautiful you are!!! The display is gorgeous, love that chair and can't tell you about the rest of the accessories. I had a visit from my sister in law a couple of weeks ago, she lives in Anaheim and I sent her to Country Roads to buy some goodies, I showed her your blog and she loved it. I printed the directions to get to the store and everything, that way she won't have excuses when I go to visit her, she is going to have to take me there.
Wishing you a beautiful week.

Marie said...

Oh dear Kate - you really have the knack for displaying! I love what you've done...when are you ever coming in Carlsbad so you could help me with mine (hint!hint!)

If I only lived closer, I would grab everything in your shop. Loving the chandelier, the chair of course and that antique looking wine bottle crate...sigh.

Hope you are feeling well these days dearest!

It is a wonderful thing in life when you are doing what you love, when you are surrounded by beauty each and every day, and when that love and beauty carries over in the form of friends and family to support you in your journey. Sending hugs and birthday blessings to you! Have a great rest of the week. Tammy :)

Missy @ Chateau Chic Boutique said...

Hey Kate! Love all your treasures displayed so beautifully. I see the bottle basket that Rita picked up and posted about. I don't know if you saw her post, you'll have to check it out.
I hope you're doing well. Big blessings to you and your family!
Have a great summer!

Oh dearest Kate...if only we lived near one another, what fun we could have with bartering. :) Love the burlap chair, love the gorgeous light over it and love the box underneath it with the 4 sections. Love it all...
Thanks for your recent visit to my blog and your kind comments. I too wish we lived near one another, as I'd adore meeting you. Your Spirit is so beautiful as well as your sweet face and I know we'd be kindred spirits in our love for the Lord, love for your families, love for the ocean and our seaside treasures, love for our home decor styles, love for thrifting, junking, re purposing, and love for healthy lifestyle living. And maybe even we share a love for one-of-a-kind fun jewelry. ;)
Be blessed dear Kate~ Your in my prayers.

I do not know whether it's just me or if everybody else experiencing problems with your blog. It seems like some of the written text within your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This might be a issue with my browser because I've had this
