Antique Farmhouse Crush and Some Awesome Frenchy Presents!

February 22, 2012

I'd have to say that some birthdays are more memorable than others.  I think my recent birthday (29, of course) will have to be filed under: "Birthdays to remember cause I got me some cool gifts."

First off, have you heard of Antique Farm House?  They're a new online retailer that I have absolutely fallen in love with!  I was lucky enough to receive one of their many awesome shabby chic items for my birthday this year.  The kids gave me their Luxe Rough pillow.  I mean, don't you just love it?  I even love the name.  Luxe.  Rough.  It's so French (another one of my current obsessions, along with pillows -- what could be better?)

And yes, I pinned it.

It almost makes turning  48 39 29 not so bad!

The second incredible gift I received was a chaise longue from Mr. CBD. Yes, you read that right.  A. chaise. longue.  Say it with me now, "shezz---lohng!"  And I couldn't be happier.  I really don't think the pictures do it justice but I did my best to capture some of it's savvy style.

Goes pretty awesomely with the pillow, non?  Like a match made in heaven.

And the tufting, oh the tufting.

And the nailhead trim.

Here's the original pillow it came with.

With my faux mink throw, love this for cold snowy days by the fire.

Here's my Luxe Rough pillow up close and personal.

So to recap:

Antique Farm House announces new sales events a few times a week starting at 11:00 a.m. EST.  You should head over there right now and sign up to receive their e-mails.  Go ahead, I'll wait.

Okay, then.  Here are a few more items currently being offered by Antique Farm House this week.

No, I'm not being paid for this plug.  Really, I just love their stuff.

And I am beyond happy (you might say giddy) with my birthday presents.   I feel very blessed, indeed.

 Like I said, it sure takes the sting out of turning 48 39 29.  Think I'll just have to go lounge on my chaise longue with that awesome pillow today.   

Snow flurries and fairly warm temperatures here today (for the midwest, that is).

Hope you're having a great week.

Happy Birthday! You really did good - nice gifts. You just had your 29th also, did you ? :-D
Cloudy and 63, but feels colder to me.

Happy Bday, Dear Heart! I thought you were 18! It might get in the 70's here in N. Va. My plants are SO confused!
Blessings, Audrey

So glad I came over to see you today. Things have totally been crazy here this week, but wow, love this store, and I'll be shopping there for sure, I can tell. I recognize some of their projects since they buy from the same company that the store I used to work for bought from, Creative Crafts. Hope you had a fab birthday, and the chaise is incredible. Go kiss your hubby!!

You are one lucky gal, Kathy!
Happiest Belated Birthday to you!

I would LOVE to have that beauty and how perfect with the throw and pillow.

Come and share it with the linky party on the first, this month's theme is share your favorite vignette!

This one would fit in perrrrrfectly.

Wow Kathleen! I love your birthday presents, what good taste your family has. The lounge and pillow look like they were made to be together. Happy belated birthday to you...what a coincidence, I just turned 29 also:-)

Kathy said...

May you always have such lovely gifts and thoughtful family! I love it when someone gets me what I WANT, not something they think I NEED. My favorite number for birthdays used to be "plenty-nine." If you waved your hand in front of your mouth when you said it, people heard 29 or 39. NOW, I am "pretty-nine" and am sticking to that number (almost 66)! My partner's mother is "39" and he's the oldest of 8 at 66!
