Farmhouse Kitchen Decor

We are supposed to have a warm up and get to 74 today. I am so happy. We are wimpy here in So. Cal. so we like are warm days. Especially since I have a little one who likes to play outside.
Time for breakfast.



 My sweet little thrift store bargains at a $1.






My father in law brought me a big bag of avocados from their tree. Can you say guacamole? I love my first yellow ware bowl. At least I think it is. Bought it for $8. Thought that was a good price. It looks very loved with a few dings but I don't mind.


Just enjoying the sun!

This tablescape it just as cute as can be! Love your little thrifty bargains!

Glad you are warming up. We're slated to a little later in the week. Floridians, like Californians, are lost in cold weather. LOL!

XO,

I enjoyed your blog. I love avocados. Could eat them daily, but they are fattening. They are a healthy food. I have to buy mine. Not as lucky as you. Wish we had some of your weather. It is very cold in Texas

I get to kill two birds with one stone today. I'm visiting from both simple pleasures and TT.

Those dishes are pretty and festive. And with those temperatures NO WONDER you feel simple pleasure in using them.

Love your red teapot and mug...it's my fave color! Lucky you with 74 degree weather. Up here in Portland, it's in the low 50's with lots of rain today. Your weather sounds much more fun!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'm so sorry to hear about your parents, loosing a parent is so hard, but to lose both so close together...wow.

Great finds. We may hit some of the same thrift shops as I am with you in Sunny SoCal. Love the first warm up after a nice rain spell. The hills are so green and the snow on the mountains looks beautiful.

Annette said...

Great finds...I'm loving the red teapot! I'm jealous of your warm temps! Here in Maryland we haven't been higher than the 30's in I don't know how long! It has been sunny though! I'm stopping by from Show and Tell Friday.
