Friday Faves...Rodeo Weekend & Rustic Glam

It's time to... um circle the wagons as this is our first experience with Rodeo Weekend in Oakdale since moving here.  It began with the Cowgirl Luncheon on Wednesday and the parade of motorhomes, horse trailers and pickups started to arrive.  I was told that it's best to just leave town, get outta Dodge so to speak but I think it will be a little interesting to see how this plays out. 


But it also led me to pull out some of my inspiration pics for one of the hottest trends out there...rustic glam.  It is everywhere from home decor, to weddings, to Christmas that I saw at Winter Market in Las Vegas.  One of the things I love about it is it is very DIY.  All kinds of creative things you can use, repurpose and make beautiful.  So here we go...

Love how the mercury glass candle holders and metal tray play with the wood.


This room is beautiful but the scale and proportion are perfect.  Love how the chandelier pops against the contrasting paint on the fireplace.


Ok, you had me at the sliding barn doors.  This is from a show house in Atlanta but I couldn't find any photo credits.  That ceiling...amazing!

 Although this might not be my style, I appreciate how this could totally rock in the right home...and yes, pun intended! I like the modern sink with all the rustic going on.  I could see this in my home in Tuscany.

              This is just brilliant photography...lovely

I could definitely spend some time in this room...great mix of textures!

So yee haw! 

 Have a great weekend and two big birthday shoutouts to my nieces Kate and Carly who are celebrating you!
