cottage fix Friday collection

Happy Friday Cottage Fix friends! It’s been a crazy busy week here and we have a super busy weekend planned! Mostly work around the house kind of stuff is in order. I put together a collection of my recent Instagram photos of cottage style things around here, flowers, and one of our town. The diner is currently out of business, but the rumor is someone is bringing it back to life. Fingers crossed! Follow me on Instagram. Thanks for visiting! xoxo […]

vintage floral drapes

Hola Cottage Fix friends! I’ve been super busy this week with lots of little projects and clearing out extra furniture and clutter. I was ever so gently informed at the supper table last week that we have too many, too much furniture. Apparently, there has been some toe stubbing happening as the family has not yet learned the places in this ol’ cottage that require the side step shuffle. That is one hazard of shopping thrift and bringing home road […]

the painted table

Happy Friday! I’m so ready for the weekend I can’t stand it! I’ve been working on my painted dining table on and off for the past couple of weeks. Oh dear, this was a project complete with meltdowns, indecision, and straight up fiasco. And I probably should add that I’m still not entirely certain what color this painted table actually is. Is it gray, maybe charcoal gray? It looks sort of brown at times. I don’t know? It’s been a […]

cozy winter knits

Salutations! We’ve been drowning in rain and overcast weather this past week here on the coast of Virginia. One more day of gloom and I fear I might become “one” with the sofa. Oh yes, cast me a line please! I’m in here, somewhere in the sofa with my jammies and tea. Ahem… After a week like this, when the sun does finally reappear, I’m so ready to get things going again. Today I’m talking all cozy winter knits if […]

Saturday tulips

Happy Weekend Cottage Fix crew! I’ve sort of been hibernating in my own little bubble lately, which isn’t really that unusual for me when it’s cold out. Trying out new recipes, getting my creative energy out, and the mundane tasks of daily chores are keeping me on my toes here in my shabby little cottage. There’s nothing I like more than a day filled with the household rituals of hot coffee, a spot of cleaning, folding a load of fresh […]

Cottage Fix winter days

Last night I drifted off to sleep to the steady drip of the melting snow. In the wee hours of the dark night I was awakened by the same drip, drip, drip, and then again early this morning. All through breakfast and well into the evening—drip, drip, drip. The snow’s melting away and leaving a mess of slush and muck in the place of its pure fresh beauty. We are finally starting to thaw out here after being under the […]

luck, kindness, and pink

Salutations! Ta da, we made it through two weeks of complete family togetherness chocked full of long walks, late meals, movies, and sale shopping. I must admit, it did get a bit hairy there for a minute or so at about a week and a half in. I’m fairly sure that if I asked, I’m the only one that would think so though. The rest of my family was in deep chill mode I’m almost certain. As for me, my […]

celebration rum cake

Salutations Cottage Fix friends! How’s things? We’ve been enjoying some serious time off here with the family all on holiday. Our days have been filled with lots of long walks, cooking, games, and hikes on the trail. With the air starting to cool, the trails have been all a flutter with birds of all kinds—my favorite to spot are the redheaded woodpeckers. We’re keeping it simple for New Year’s Eve this year and staying in with a couple of appetizers, […]
