colorful vintage quilts to brighten up our weary cottage

Hello there Cottage Fix friends! I’ve been infusing our cottage with color using these lovely vintage quilts to make things happy all around. I’m home here all week with my daughter while she’s recovering from her second ear surgery, which turned out to be more intense and invasive than the surgery she had on her other ear this past summer. She’s a trooper though, she never ceases to amaze me.

So I’ve been making lots of mac & cheese and chicken noodle soup, spending my days picking out movies for us to watch together, and fetching ginger ale from the fridge. She really is nice company and I have to say I secretly enjoy having her here recovering, it reminds of her toddler days when we spent every minute of the day together. I wish the surgery part was out of the equation of course! I just escaped for a bit of blogging and I kinda get the feeling she’s okay with the break from mom. Grin!

Cottage Fix - vintage quilt on the cottage sun porchI am so craving a dose of color to brighten things up while we are spending so much time here indoors. I added this vintage quilt in shades of blue and turquoise to our sun porch and a multicolored hodge podge beauty to bring a bit of cheer to our guest room.

My daughter has a nest on the sofa made of blankets and pillows and my little birdie is feeling extra cozy with her comfy nest and the curtain up. I really think curtains help to warm up a room, especially when your not feeling well. I would like to add some ivory panels to the sun porch and I don’t know if you noticed, but that floor lamp could use a shade! I might bring the gold and floral lamp back in that belonged to my grandmother, that would be a quick and easy fix.

    I hope you daughter recovers quickly. I know how sometimes it is nice to have them home like the olden days too. Love your vintage quilt you’re using. My sister loves quilts too. She always checks them out whenever she sees one.

    I love your vintage quilts, Sally, and the pretty pastel colors they add to your lovely cottage rooms. They cozy up your wicker and guest room during this chilly time of year. Funny…I was actually thinking how much I liked your floor lamp without the shade.
    Sure hope your daughter is recovering well from her surgery.
