Lakeside Home Inspiration and a couple changes to my blog, and a giveaway coming soon!

I have been changing up my blog a bit and wanted to update my banner to reflect more of my style. My post and interest have been leaning towards decor and antiques as  hubby and I have been  doing "hicks picks" (our last name is hicks, hahah) to add antique finds to my online shop and decorate our home so I wanted my space to reflect my love for decor and antiques and not just that I make bags and aprons. The old farmhouse in the blog banner was my Great aunt annies in bowling green Kentucky. I am still searching for a good front picture of the farmhouse I lived in as a child. Those are distant relatives of mine on the porch. 
 When I took a break from designing my blog or attempting to I had to look up some decor inspiration and look what I found!  A beautiful Alabama lake property.

I love the mix of old with new, metals with wood,layers of texture  
These photos  are making it to my inspiration clipboard 
Can I just say "wow"

Perfect blend of elegance with casual

How's that for a guest room and bath??

Nice master this room is a play on neutral textures so soothing!

I would never want to leave

This is another guest room with a lake view

The halls and stairway are definitely something to feast your eyes on. I love the lighting fixtures, they are
so different from each other but yet it all flows together so well.  I just wanted to share what inspired me this morning!

Oh and

I am also linking to Jill's porch party as the banner has a porch and well the reason why it is romantic is 50+ years later a relative finds it purty enough to put on her blog, there is a romance in farmhouse and porches, I have had a porch most every place I lived it has been a requirement and that is becuase when I was little we all sat on them and passed most the sunday away visiting, eating ice cream, singing and just loving eachother!
