Room With A View {Our Lakeside Outdoor Screen Room}

Welcome back to Creative Country Mom's!
Today I am sharing our favorite room during the warmer months...
Our Screen Room~~~  this is the peek you get of it in my kitchen posts.
Do you want to see more?  Come on outside!
My sweet hubby built this room for us last summer.  
One of his must haves is old fashioned screen doors.
 If you remember this room from last summer, quite a bit has changed.
 We added the tv, two rockers and took out the table and chairs.

Early Spring Front Gardens {Featuring Snowball Bush Blooms}

Welcome to my Indiana country garden and my first garden post of 2016! 
 Yes, we have missed a few blooms... but we have had a wet, messy Spring.
And yes, it has taken me much longer to get in cleanup time this year!
 But the garden does not wait... and the blooms are coming!
 This antique shrub is delightful in a country garden... it is commonly called a Snowball Bush... or Southern Viburnum.

 It looks much like a hydrangea in bloom, it only blooms in the Spring and is not as fragrant as other Viburnums, but the lovely white/cream blooms and hearty heat tolerance more than make up for it.  Mine is just four years old, and will fill out this space nicely.

My Creative Corner - A Vintage Style Desk and Work Space


 Welcome back to Creative Country Mom's!
I know the posts have been a bit longer between this Spring.
I miss talking with you all, but things are good here.
Lots of kid stuff, homeschool, traveling and gardening.
 It has been a bit since I focused on my library table turned desk.

I have made a few changes in this corner.... so today we will take a closer look.

Welcome Me To The Coffee Club....

Welcome Me To The Coffee Club....
I have to tell you... I am in a sharing mood. I am well... a bit wound up I guess.
(It might be the caffeine)
 After 43 years this winter I started drinking coffee. 
Yes, I have joined adult society at last. 
I am a grown up now. 
I tell you... it took me a very long time to come around.

A Bright Spring Cottage Style Entry and Stairway

 Welcome back to my vintage home!
I know, it has been too long again.
Spring is a busy time for me with two teens in tennis.
And a big garden to tend to... but this week it is way too cold and windy for that!
Let's take a little closer look at my entry today....
 I love a cottage look and that is evident as soon as you walk in my home.

Sweet Little Iornstone Pitcher - Flea Market Friday Find


  Welcome back my dear readers!
I have a sweet little find for you today~~~
This DARLING little iornstone pitcher was in really poor condition.
I should have did a before photo...  It was streaked with black and brown muck...
I soaked it in a bleach solution and scrubbed it at bit... and it looks like new!
Well... antique new... you know?
Best of all... it was in the DOLLAR BIN!
I am positive they had no idea what it was... they just saw the stains.
Love a good find like that!  It is not labeled.... 
but it is HEAVY like my real iornstone things.
I had the little bowl and they work together perfectly....

Light and Bright Cottage Eat-In Kitchen

 Two post in a row...
Be proud of me!  I am on a roll!!
Today I thought you might enjoy the sun shining into the kitchen.
I know I love these sunny days!  
It is slowly warming up here in Indiana.
 One of the best things about out house is all the windows and the sunlight.
 I love to grow houseplants and have them in my decor.
I worried with the addition of the screen room we would lose the light in this area.
As you can see, it is still wonderful.
