Happy Friday! Alot has been going down at cottage fix the past couple of weeks, some good, some bad. We sprung a leak in our unfinished basement and water sprayed and spewed everywhere, and of course it was bright and early Monday morning, bad. The basement got pretty wet before I happened to hear the water gushing out, ugg! On the bright side, it was fixed in a jiffy. I finished all of my fall planting and flower potting — the little clay pots might just make an appearance soon when the pansies start to take off. I planted tiny English boxwoods, pansies, and kale this season. A couple of the homes in our neighborhood have gardens filled with English boxwoods, and I am diggin it! They are about 10 dollars a pop at Lowes for the smallest size bush, so my garden is filled with two teensie boxwoods planted in two little clay pots!
I have been experimenting with color in the living room, which opens up to the dining room, the sun room, and you can even see a little peek of the family room. I am trying to keep in mind what colors are already in the other rooms and what I might want to add. So after finishing the ivory paint I wasn’t exactly sure what direction I’d be heading with color. Every time I paint a room I tell myself I’m going to pick out some fabric or a pillow first to choose a wall color. Hasn’t ever happened and I have painted some rooms — let me tell you! Blue will definitely be staying in the picture and we will see what happens from there.
