If this isn’t cozy, I don’t know what is…

Well, the Halloween decor is coming down, and I’m moving onto another holiday.  I can only imagine what I was looking for when I found Aunt Ruthie’s site tonight, but I am sooo glad I did.

Her house is the epitome of cozy and warm and inviting, and I knew I had to share it with you. She’s got a pretty substantial following, so who knows what rock I’ve been hiding under!

Yes.  That’s her kitchen.  Yes. That’s her view from her sink.

She has windows.  In her house.  With shutters.  Love…

Oh sure.  There’s a million and one things I could have said.  The pictures spoke for themselves.  Well, now I’m off to re-evaluate the way I decorate for fall.

Yep I love Aunt Ruthie's blog. She says she wants her house to be like one of her favorite places, Disneyland. She achieves it and gives me something to strive for.
Blessings,
Nancy

Uhm - I'm off to re-evaluate basically every design thing I ever thought of - haha. What a beautiful home. Thank you so much for sharing.

Connie said...

I found her blog in January and was smitten with her home and the wonderful way she decorates it. Not only is her home beautiful but she is even more beautiful on the inside than on the outside (if that is possible, she is gorgeous.)
Every time I read one of her posts it makes me want to be a better person, she is truly inspirational.

Red Lipstick Style said...

So inspiring! I'm going to click over a visit her blog. Wow, I wouldn't know where to STORE all this stuff, but I won't let that stop me!

Buffy said...

michelle@somedaycrafts said...

Oh My heck! that is one gorgeous house!!!! I would love a kitchen like that!!!

Kristen said...

I could just sit and curl up in her house all day. Give me a magazine, some hot chocolate and I'll promise I'll be quiet, she won't even know I'm there!

My house is looking very naked and inadequate after that!

WOW, thanks for sharing. I do love the idea of shutters around the inside windows. How clever and inspiring.

beth said...

I love her blog! When you read one of her posts, you come away wanting to be a better person. I love that about her blog. It's less about decorating, and more about how to be a happy homemaker and how to make your home feel like a haven for your family. A great Christian wife and mother, she is! I want to be Aunt Ruthie when I grow up! :)

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
I stumbled across her blog a few weeks ago when I google image searched "pantries". DID you see her pantry??? To dye for! Anyway....I forgot to save it to my favorites and have been searching for it ever since. So I guess we've been under the same rock!

{ L } said...

P.S. Chris, I know I already left a comment here BUT I wanted to tell you that I just did a super fun Spy Party for my son and have the blog post up. I would SO LOVE for you to hop over and see it. Thank you! <3

Steph @ somewhatsimple said...

Wow! That is a great house! I would love that view from my kitchen!

I am just stopping by for the first time and I am loving your blog! I will be back again and again!!!

Blarney said...

Dear Lordy she is talented! I think she just gained a stalker thanks to you!

hopefuls #1 said...

This sort of posts makes me want me to open my house up to anyone who believes they are talented and just let them decorate as they wish... just to see what they would come up with. Because if I attempted something like this, my husband would call it cluttered. :(

This is just STUNNING! Dreamy...

Willo said...

WOW! That is amazing!

Paige said...

Beautiful home! Thanks for sharing.

thatgirlblogs said...

ok, I've been all through her site now, and can't figure out where you found/viewed all the photos? I see them scrolling across the header, but wondered where you looked at them all in one place?

would love to see more.

thanks for posting! new site looks beautiful.

Loretta said...

This may be the first time I am completely jealous of someone's home. I can usually reel it in, but not this time! Stunning!

Kasey Hunt said...

So beautiful. I don't think I'd ever leave the kitchen!!

Rainy Day Farm said...

Glad you found Aunt Ruthie, she is the best. Her posts are not all that often, but when she posts a new one it is well worth the wait! She is so inpirational, and everytime I read a new post, I want to be a better person!
Kind of like when I look at your blog I want to be a better decorator!

Hi, I LOVE the shutters on the sides of here "windows'. Too cute. I also love the paint colors, would you happen to know what the names of them are? One looks kind of like SW Baguette and I have been thinking of painting my den that color. Thanks!
