Hi, How'dy, How are ya?

Welcome to "The Country Schoolmarm"! Get yourself a cup of coffee (I take mine strong with vanilla creamer), grab a seat, and chat a while! Isn't that what country friends do? Now, all we need is a porch...

Polls are open... Rock the Vote (or boat... Your choice.)!

Well, here they are... Sorry they are late.  I have been vegging with a sinus headache most of the day,  so, to get this going, it is now almost 12 am, and this is what I came up with.  I am not sure I am happy with any of them. This shelf didn't "speak" to me with ideas.  Maybe it is the size of the shelf.  I love the other shelves. I am just not feeling this one.  Ugh. 

     I did include some close-ups of vignettes and some pictures of items by themselves- ones I used and ones I did not. Feel free to suggest any changes.  I applied some of your ideas of simplifying to my kitchen today.  Although, I cannot show you because it is covered by groups of Fall decor now. Clean up and then mess it up.  It is kind of like showering, doing your make-up and hair before working in the garden. Things that make you go, "Hmmmmmmm..."

Here we go... (I don't know why there is a huge space.  I can't get rid of it!)




Extra!!!! Extra!!! Think all about it...







Have a blessed Sunday!  Thank you for voting and commenting!



  1. Morning Heather, love #4 the best but all look wonderful on the great cupboard....Happy Sunday Francine.

  2. They all look great but I'm picking #2. Everyone of us will probably pick a different number and then you'll be so confused but you can't go wrong with any of them! :)

  3. I liked #2 when I saw it first, but I like #7 better.
    Hope yoiu get rid of your cold soon! Not fun working when you feel crappy.

  4. Wow they all looking so lovely..me confused now..lol
    I think no 2
    Hugs x

  5. I have been suffering all week with sinus headaches! feel better soon! my vote is for #7! OLM

  6. Oh yeah..I was thinking #4, with a little doll in there too, but then I came to #7 and fell in love with it! That touch of black in the little tote really adds a wonderful POP!

  7. Heather~ You have spent so much time and effort on this, an you have so many wonderful things. I think I like #6. I have looked so many times(I just changed my first choice lol) and especially love all of your close ups. I love all of your goodies.It has been fun helping you decorate. Thanks for letting us help. Hope you are feeling better. Blessings~Sara

  8. 6!!!!!!! Woolie apples are being created in my woolie button nest.

  9. 6!!!!!!! Woolie apples are being created in my woolie button nest.

  10. Oooooh it is a tricky one but I'd choose 6 only instead of the long tool box use the black one center stage. The coffe grinder and old scales look really great either side.
    Love that lil harvest doll!
    God bless

  11. I vote for #6....and may have voted on the wrong post! heehee! I just love all of your pretties! Sweet hugs!
