a farmhouse visit and more

Can you believe it is September already? Where did the summer go? This one seemed to fly by for me. In fact, I looked at the chalkboard in our kitchen the other day and realized I still had dates up from when Henry finished school in June! It seems like yesterday. I thought I would send you into the weekend with a little bit of what I have been up to outside of The Marion House Book. Enjoy! IMG_3013First up is a little ode to summer vacations. Check out my visit to a charming Ontario farmhouse a few hours out of the city.

My dream is to have my own country house one day. While that is a long way off it doesn't stop me from planning how and what I might decorate it with like these beautiful hand carved gardenia knobs from Anthropologie. See more of my faves over here.
