lizmariegalvan We had another successful junkin' day for @thefoundcottage!! Just a tiny glimpse of what we loaded into the store today. I love that our store is a mix of old and new. & it's basically a mix of everything that we love. It's so hard to not keep everything for ourselves, but thankfully we like to share our finds with everyone else just as much as we love to keep it all. Happy Friday friends & happy weekend... I hope you all had a great day! #TheFoundCottage #LMBfinds 7h

lizmariegalvan Crazy plant lady here just left my happy place, @ikeausa!! I loaded up on tons of greenery & fun things. It's a yucky gray day here in Michigan so this was much needed & all of these plants are making me happy. We literally were loading the truck up in blowing snow... I need a nap & a hot coffee haha. Happy Thursday everyone!! #IkeaObsessed #CrazyPlantLady #naptime #kindoflikeswedishmeatballsnow 2d

lizmariegalvan Did a little fun photoshoot today of a piece of furniture we worked on this week. I'll be blogging it soon so stay tuned for that. I find everything I'm doing these days has hints of spring in it & I'm not mad about it. Happy Wednesday everyone! 3d

lizmariegalvan I get TONS of questions about our farmhouse sink so I shared all the details & my full review on the blog today: LizmarieBlog.com - link in my profile. I even shared some pros & cons about our farmhouse sink. Hope it helps some of you! Someday I hope to put a little babe in our farmhouse sink, until then I might wash my dogs in it tomorrow. #LMBhome #FertilityJourneyThoughts [all sources on the blog] 3d
  •   chels_johns You're not a fan of subway? I was thinking of grey subway in the kitchen depending on how it matches the granite @allen.mcneil 2d
  •   tracydivita Tried to leave a message on the blog, but got kicked out.... anyway, I agree! I absolutely love my copper farmhouse sink. .. really happy with the single well and the versatility of it! I'm very pleased with my pull down faucet too! Even better with a quick twist of the nozzle it goes from stream to spray♡ I chose to do an "over-mount" installation of the sink and live the way it looks with the counter top!! @lizmariegalvan 2d
  •   yllilzara @evieandmollie you'd love this account , I love it ALL ! 2d
  •   magmiller @sarahree your kitchen 2d
  •   thewhitefarmhouse @lizmariegalvan your home is stunning as always. And this post about wishing for a baby to bathe in that sink . I remember when we were trying Mothers Day I sobbed wishing I was a mother. I couldn't imagine how hard this journey has been for you and your husband. I know you are a believer and know God has a plan. I just pray this journey ends with a healthy baby in that sink!! Prayers and love your way friend 2d

lizmariegalvan We made this simple rustic box centerpiece for our dining room & I shared how to make your own & how I got this paint finish on the blog today: Lizmarieblog.com - link in my profile. We have made these rustic wood boxes in the past for many things, but each one is always different & they never get old to me! What do you think of it? I'm loving this paint color & the rope handles. #LMBhome 4d

lizmariegalvan You guys asked to see what I got while out junkin' yesterday in Indiana. Well, this isn't even half of it. I quickly snapped a photo as we unloaded the trailer of some of the treasures we got. Some of the bigger pieces wouldn't fit in the photo. Can't wait to set this all up in our store, @thefoundcottage, & do some DIY projects with some of it! #LMBfinds 5d

lizmariegalvan I went to Indiana today junkin' with my pal @binksandthebadhousewife. We filled up the truck and the trailer with goods for @thefoundcottage & for our houses of course. I'll share more photos tomorrow of my finds, but here is a quick pic of one of our stops today. So much fun & much needed! Can't wait to get home & unload all our goods. #TheFoundCottage 5d

lizmariegalvan As I left for the shop this morning I snapped this quick photo of our unfinished upstairs living room. The sun was pouring in, it was a new day, & I woke up to so many encouraging words. Friends and family had texted words from God & I felt renewed. I also felt silly for letting a few comments upset me. My worth is not in people or things, it's in my Lord. Today is a new day filled with new blessings.. I hope you all have an amazing day. I'll be hanging at my happy place, @thefoundcottage, all day. I also was going to share this idea Jose had for our coffee table. It's not going to work for us & we will be returning these benches, hence why they have tags on them still, but his idea was to put two benches together in the middle of the sofas with a large tray and some decor. Our thought was that you could pull them apart for additional seating and also use them as foot rests. We ended up wanting to go with wood, but I thought I would share this before we returned them. The living room is far from done & it's quite bare right now, but it's getting there! Can't wait to show you the coffee table we have in mind. Hint: it's handmade! Thank you again for all the kind words on my last post... You are all amazing & I don't deserve it, but I'm truly grateful. Thank you!!! #LMBhome 7d

lizmariegalvan Today I was feeling so accomplished because after an entire month of being at the store everyday & working my booty off, working on house projects, blogging, trying to be a good wife, and quite frankly washing my hair at least twice a week during all of that, I felt accomplished! I got home from work tonight and felt motivated so after a living room picnic with the hubs I worked on getting our house back together like putting this large salvage sign above our card catalog [holy cow this thing is heavy!] & just cleaning up the mess of re-doing rooms in between the store. & then my friend @thewhitefarmhouse kindly alerted me to one of the meanest comments I have ever received. & instantly I felt like I work so hard for nothing. One person made me feel like I was doing this all for nothing. The commenter was questing my morals, my blog, & just being rude all because of a sofa I posted. I rarely see mean comments on my blog, but they still hurt. It made me really think that all people see of me on the blog & social media is a glimpse into my life & I had to forgive her for the things she said. I get that not everyone likes everyone, I get that we all don't love everything someone posts, I get that we don't always agree with everyone, but ALWAYS remember there is a nice way to say everything & that some things shouldn't be said at all. You don't know how badly that person is hurting that who you leave that mean comment for. You don't know their struggles or what they are going through. A kind word goes a long way & can truly make someone's day or even save their life. I'm not perfect, I'm a sinner, I'm going to make mistakes, & because of that I forgive. I didn't want to share this because it's not super positive, & I'm not doing it for pity, but I was hoping it could help someone in some small way. For all of you dealing with negativity, you are not alone. You are all amazing & I truly hope you are all treated with kindness and respect & that you all do the same to others. That comment just inspired me to be nicer & spread more love! Goodnight friends! #LMBhome ps. Next project- FINALLY FINISH THE CARD CATALOG haha.. I can't wait! 1w
  •   designsbyimaginethat You are priceless & yes I agree not everyone is going to like, love what we say or do. Yes there is a mean cruel world out there. People speak before they truly know who we are. Your response was beautiful. You touch so many hearts with your faith, your warm heart, the excitement you share in things you do. You, to me are a true kindred spirit. Blessings to you sweet one. I for one love you sharing your life with us. You give me hope & a smile & for that I am grateful. 6d
  •   kaitjanelle I love all of your work!! You inspire me every day. To be kind, creative, love life, and find happy even when life if hard. I love getting on Instagram because I love getting on your ig/blog! 5d
  •   theruggedrooster Thank you for this.. it has truly been a hard week. This mornings sermon really spoke to me about continually renewing my thoughts through him and holding my tongue. Its hard not to lash out at hurtful words. 5d

lizmariegalvan There is something about drinking coffee every morning in our store. It kind of hits me every morning that this is actually our store & I get excited with the adventure of the day that awaits us. New finds everyday, styling the store, & getting to meet some amazing people all while working with people that I love. This is really a dream come true. @thefoundcottage has been such a blessing for me & I hope it blesses other people in some small way too. Cheers to Friday my friends!! I hope you all have a great day and an even better weekend! #LMBlovesCoffee #TheFoundCottage 1w

lizmariegalvan I have to admit that since the store opened two weeks ago I kind of let our house cleaning go. Oops. Well, I couldn't take it anymore so I'm tackling our house one space at a time. This week it was all about our upstairs linen closet. It was SO embarrassing & I can't believe I shared before photos on the blog today: lizmarieblog.com - link in my profile. Head on over for before and after photos, what I did to organize the closet, & tips. Please don't judge me by what it looked like before thank goodness it looks like this now! Are you guys doing some winter cleaning lately? Any tips? [all sources and paint colors on my blog today - link in my profile] 1w
  •   jodiesdesignlife Love it! It's definitely a 'brag' post! Just came from your blog! I've been working with a friend of mine who is going into her own Professional Organizing business and is using my closets as practice! Your linen closet redo has some great ideas! Your before -after photos speak volumes! Thanks for this! 1w

lizmariegalvan I have some exciting news!! I am carrying @raedunnclay products at our store, @thefoundcottage!!!! I've been a Rae Dunn fan for years & I'm excited to now have them in our store. I wanted to carry all of my favorite things in our store so this only makes sense. I just got my shipment in & it's like Christmas morning unwrapping all of these beauties!! This isn't even half of what I got in. If you need me I'll be buried in Rae Dunn goods all day. #TheFoundCottage 1w

lizmariegalvan I am not one to go all out for Valentine's Day decor, but I did add some neutral Valentine's Day decor to our bedroom because I was sucked in by @target. Story of my life. Head to the blog to see all the Valentine's Day decor, more photos, & all of the room sources: Lizmarieblog.com - link in my profile.

lizmariegalvan Since I showed you the huge bottle rack I got from @homegoods the other day for our store display, I thought I would show you the one I picked up from there for our house. I haven't hung anything on it yet, but I set it on top of our pie safe for more mug storage. I love how tall and skinny this one is... Pictures to come when I hang my mugs. I hope you are all having a great week. It's a gloomy day here in Michigan, but I'm heading to hang out at the store so it's a good day. #LMBhome [see the blog for all the sources in our winter dining room: lizmarieblog.com - link in my profile] 2w

lizmariegalvan I found this vintage bookshelf & gave it a quick makeover with some chalk paint & wax. Check out the blog today to see what I used to get this look, how it looked before I painted it [kind of shocking], & how it looks with the doors all shut: lizmarieblog.com - link in my profile. I wanted to keep this piece for myself, but it sold at @thefoundcottage this past weekend... I'll have to find another one! What do you guys think of my vintage bookcase makeover? #TheFoundCottage 2w
  •   whereisgigi @ramirezclan look what they did with this bookcase. I'm doing it too! 2w
  •   on_to_something_gifts Love that color! 2w
  •   juliebeals Omg I have this same cabinet. It's a dark stain which really does not go with the feel of my room. I love how you softened up the look. Love it thanks for the inspiration! 2w
  •   mrs.hcardwell @lizmariegalvan hi Liz! I love everything about your new store. Congratulations! I am currently in the making of starting my own home goods shop, but for now it will be solely online for at least 6 months, then I hope to open my own store! Any tips or good advice you could give me going into this? Thanks! :) 2w
  •   thebumblypatch LOVE!!! 1w
  •   deapetersen So cute. I have this bookcase as well ♡ Would love a tutorial on chalk painting. I've been wanting to try but I have no idea where to begin ;) All the brands of paint overwhelm me. Thanks for posting it's beautiful! @lizmariegalvan 1w
  •   lmarxsen Is it possible to let me know when you have other Myrtle Beach pillows please? Thanks. 3d
