BHG 2015 Blogger Awards-I Made it


Happy Monday sweet friends! I have the most incredible news to share!!! I made Better Homes & Garden’s Top 10 Decorating Blogs list for 2015!!! When I opened the email from BHG I was so overwhelmed and my eyes welled up with tears. I never imagined in a million years when I began this blogging journey I would be here, today. I am so humbled by this and appreciative for all of your support.

When I began I had some amazing friends who encouraged me, I think they had more faith in me, than I had in me:). I was so frightened I would fail & I knew NOTHING about websites or technology. I just had a feeling in my heart this was something I needed to do. I really wanted to share my story of making our house a comfortable, stylish retreat on a budget. We seriously had no $ when we moved in and at first it felt like a barrier, I had this vision of what I wanted home to be but not the financial resources to get there.  When we couldn’t afford something growing up my mother taught me how to make it/create it myself {I will always be grateful for that}. There is such empowerment that comes from being resourceful. And I wanted to share that with whoever would listen & that is how City Farmhouse all began.

So PLEASE vote & spread the word on ALL social media & to your family and friends, I would be so grateful!!!! Voting is unlimited, so you can vote as much as you want from any device until March 30th.

Can you believe this line up???? I am incredibly honored to be amongst these amazing women!


 I will leave you with one of my favorite reminders….if your dreams dont scare you then

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!! I am so grateful for each & everyone one of you!

Have a beautiful week,

  1. so well deserved! I’ve voted and will continue to vote every day for you! You are my inspiration on transforming a fixer upper my husband and I bought recently! Thank you for sharing your creativity with the world!

  2. o.k. I had not even heard of several of these nominated blogs so I wondered what I was missing out on. I took the time and visited them today. Well, I am back to say that most of them were just too slick for my taste. Too many photos taken from glossy e-magazines and put forth for comment. Too many suggested stylings of the “right shower curtain”, for instance, and what decor items I should be buying. (There’s a right curtain and a wrong one? Gee, I thought life was about choices.)
    I now have a new appreciation for City Farmhouse. Your home and blog keep it REAL. And that’s what I will keep coming back for.
    You have my vote.

  3. Just voted Jen! Your blog is inspirational.
    I recently started following your blog after buying our 1970’s home. I was feeling overwhelmed about all the changes I wanted to do. I had no clue where to start. I feel like your blog has helped me with my own home and to realize it takes time to make a house the home of your dreams. I have tried new projects that I never knew I was capable of 🙂 I am now back to enjoying my own home journey. Much love coming from one mom home owner to another.
