Feature Friday: Rustic and Woven


Happy Friday, my friends!  I’m always happy when the weekend rolls around, because it means Mark will be home and I get to see more of him which is always fun.  Our bathroom project starts next week, so that’s going to be a busy week getting things done around here.

We decided to gut the entire bathroom ourselves and most of it is already gutted, but Mark is going to remove the old one piece bathtub this weekend.  I’ll be sharing progress on it all soon as well.  It will be awhile before the whole thing gets finished and I’ve ordered those wallpaper samples to check out, so I’m pretty sure that will happen too once the bathroom is complete.

Today’s Feature Friday is a blog I’ve just found, Tonya with Rustic and Woven.  She’s a newly single girl living outside Chicago with her rescue dog and she lives in a historic Dutch Colonial built in 1939. She loves old houses, mixing old with new and doesn’t follow trends, but instead embraces classic and timeless appeal, a girl after my own heart. I think you’ll love her cute and quaint home. She says she has no DIY skills, so it’s going to take her awhile to get things done, but I think her home is as cute as can be and I love how welcoming and homey it feels, with the wood tones and her pretty furnishings.

This looks like a great place to hunker down for the winter and enjoy the cozy fire and a good book.

I hope you enjoyed this tour of Tonya’s home as much as I did.  I love to see how everyone decorates their homes and it’s so fun to take tours of so many different styles. I can appreciate them all and it’s inspirational to see so many ways to put homes together.  The feeling evoked is always welcoming and cozy! Stop by Rustic and Woven and meet Tonya!

    So cute and cozy. I could just imagine curling up on that sofa with her sweet pup Alice.
    The kitchen sink brought back so many memories of my grandparents kitchen in Dalton, Ga.
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Love that kitchen. It would be fun to keep that sink.

  3. Love it! I really like the light walls with dark accents in the rooms. All the wood is perfect for the home too. Great feature. 🙂

  4. Hello Alice, aren’t you a beautiful girl! What an inviting home, especially with the sunlight pouring in. Love the floors and that card catalog. I’m with everybody else, keep the kitchen sink…it’s fantastic.

    Rhoda, good luck with the upcoming renovation. We can’t wait to see it. Happy Weekend!

  5. Hi Alice, your home is so welcoming and warm and your floors I absolute love, they look just like mine. Love your style and yes you must keep that vintage sink.

  6. This is such a beautiful and serene home. Alice has done a great job in decorating it.

    There is a lot to like about this sweet home; and like everyone else, it would be a travesty to lose the porcelain one piece sink – but of course I’m old and sentimental. I know it isn’t exactly conducive to usable counter space and in a smaller space I’m guessing a good flat surface would be preferred. But still…. 🙂

  8. So cozy and cute. I got lots of ideas for my small space from your wonderful home. I love the neutral colors too.

  9. When I found her on Instagram a while back I remember thinking that her style was so soft and classic. The reason I started following in the first place. Thanks for sharing her home with us.

  10. VirginiaGeorgia says:

    For sure keep that absolutely fabulous sink! Love the floors and the feel of the entire house; so very inviting!

  11. Happy Friday Rhoda, love this darling house. The floors,vintage kitchen sink, and Tonya’s office are my favorites. Alice is a sweetheart. Going to Tonya’s blog to leave a comment. I’ll tell her that you sent me. Haha

  12. Carol Heartfelt Whimsies says:

    Love the cozy, comfy feeling in Tonya’s home!

  13. Love,love the sink!! The whole home is beautiful!

  14. WOW! I have a dream to make my house a unique one! Yours is exactly what I was dreamed! Going to follow all of your ideas!!! Wish me a good luck Rhoda!!! 🙂

  15. Melesa Garrison says:

    Even if she doesn’t keep the sink for her kitchen, it would be cool in a laundry room or something. Love it! Her house is so nice and comfortable looking. Alice is adorable!
