In the Kitchen

It’s me again. 


So glad to be back in the blogging world.


If you don’t follow me on Instagram, please do.  That’s where I post most frequently.  @farmhousedreamsabk is where you can find me.


I notice people don’t comment as much as they once did, but that’s totally okay.  I just hope you stop by and take a look around.  I hope while you are here,  you will smile, feel a twinge of joy, be inspired, and know that you are valued and appreciated.


I shared my love of Springtime in my last post and how I love to add fresh flowers around the house to help usher in the new life that is coming forth outside and inside.

Wintertime can be tough.   For some, it’s a time of quiet, calm, and rest.  For others, winter can be a time of sadness and darkness. 


Spring and sunshine seem to stay away way too long.

And then, one glorious morning, you wake up and the sunshine has returned.

The flowers outside are blooming.


New life is beginning.


Hearts and souls are awakening from a long winter’s rest.


God is in control of all the seasons and has a reason for all He does, but I sure do love spring the best.

I bet I’m not alone.

I am so thankful for the beauty of God’s creation and that I can bring His beauty inside to freshen and liven up our home.


What about you?  Are you thankful spring is here?




After I had already done this post, I was inspired by my sisterfriend, Becky, from Buckets of Burlap and @becky.cuningham.home, to put something fresh into my grain elevator buckets.

I love having fresh herbs on hand, so quickly cut some lemon balm and sweet mint to add to my spring kitchen.

Chat again soon, okay…


Blessings friends, Amy

Hi, Amy! So wonderful to read your post this morning. I am so happy to see your grain elevator buckets; I had bought one about a year ago, just because I thought it was cool, so I am very happy to know what it actually is! Blessings,

These photos and designs are great! I need to visit Becky's blog again. Blogging to me is about formed friends over the past three years. I check in and email my closest but I don't post everyday. Yes, everyone is going to Instagram and while I like that and Facebook, I treasure my blogging friends and look forward to their posts.

lovely post.
glad to know you from FB. Love your posts there.
I am a blogger too, but since signing up on FB several years ago, not much time to blog.
I'm thinking of signing up on instagram but figure my FB page may be lacking then.

enjoyed my visit here.

Yes, Spring is my favorite season also! I love how everything seems new and alive again. I am also one of those who feel sadness in the winter after Christmas is past! Enjoyed your pics!

I love following you wherever I can. You inspire me so. I too dont blog as much as I use too. Nor do I comment as much. I spend more time on instagram also. Have a lovely day.

Your Springtime post is totally refreshing, dear friend!
I love the subtle color palette "In The Kitchen"!
The soft blue and green hues are so~o~o tranquil!
Thank you for renewing my Spirit today!

Love your little springtime corner. I'm glad spring has finally arrived. I'm fairly new to your blog but I'm not on Facebook so I'm glad for the bloggers out there that share so much with the rest of us. Looking forward to future posts from you.

Hi Amy, I love to see your blog posts in my inbox. I don't "do" Instagram or (gasp!) Pinterest because I spend enough time (read, "too much") on my computer just with emails, blog posts and Facebook. I don't need to add anything else. Just sayin'. Yes, I enjoy spring, too. Don't we have a wonderful Creator, to help us see things with "fresh eyes?" Have a blessed week!

Spring is wonderful! It is so nice to see the sun shining once again after a dreary winter. My daffodils are starting to bloom here and I think I'm going to cut some and bring them in to enjoy. I love how you have decorated your kitchen, the grain elevator buckets are adorable!
