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!
I 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.
I have the feeling more color is going to be finding it’s way into more rooms of our cottage, it’s feeling good for sure. That could all change when I start to bring in Christmas, but maybe not. We’ll see.
I was also able to sneak in a moment or two to hang the lace panel in the family 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.
