Today with the Farmhouse Hens Decorate the project is milk glass! I had to call my mom in for this one because I knew she had several lovely dishes from my grandma that would be just perfect. With my guest bedroom reveal coming out earlier this week my thoughts turned to, “What could I setup to greet my guests in the morning?”

First thing was first, I knew I needed flowers and with winter being so totally HERE buying lilies felt like a clear indication that spring actually might be on its way! (The checkout lady looked at me and asked, “Are these flowers just for you?” When I told her that YES they were she grinned and said, “Good for you, Girl!”)

I wanted to set this up on my island because no matter who I have over to my house everyone gravitates to it. We all stand (or sit) by the island, its just the way it is – it is the center of my home. Next purchase were some pretty little pastries (I know, I should have cooked something… but these looked so good!) I took them to work the next day and all of my coworkers appreciated them. With some napkins added I could almost smell the coffee on a Sunday morning with my guests and I settling in around my island.

My purchase at Walmart was as follows: New sheets for my bed, a new lampshade, pastries, flowers, sheetrock mud and sheetrock tape lol and if that isn’t a clear indication of the kind of gal I am…

    This is so beautiful, your guests are lucky. That milk glass tier tray is so gorgeous and to know that its real, its vintage, and its family. Wow, what a keepsake Tarah. I cannot say enough about how much I love it.

      Oh Leanna, thank you so much! These pieces have been in our family for years upon years, I treated them with kid gloves when I used them here!

    Morning Tarah…. That milk glass is really lovely – now give it back to your Mum!! I am wondering if you are going to have paying guests this coming Summer? It might help a bit with the budget. I do this with a well known website, and this is my sixth year. I find it really fun, I sit at home and the world comes to me!!

      Oh wow Susan, I never considered that I’ll have to look into it, that would be a lot of fun!

    Have a look at my site on AirBnB – Town Bridport, Dorset. My page is called “Airy Room in 200 year old house” and on there I am Mrs Mac.

    Tarah I just love the milk glass tray. It looks so lovely on the island with those yummy looking pastries. A wonderful way to greet guests!

    Hi Tarah – love milk glass. I’ve been handed down a few pieces from my mum. Your centrepiece is so fresh and lovely as is your blog. Found it via the Inspire Me Monday Link Up and realised I already follow you on Instagram. Love me some DIY so feel right at home at Grandmas House.

    Love that milk glass pastry stand, it’s such a gorgeous piece and I bet it could tell a few stories too. The whole setup looks welcoming and oh so pretty.
