Salutations cottage fix friends. I’m just taking things easy the last few days. Oh yes, lots of rest and relaxation along with the regular daily chores of one domestic goddess. We’re not starting any new projects or makeovers until our bathroom remodel is 100% complete. And since at the moment we’re on hiadis from all that, lots of long walks with Paisley, watching my daughters games with the sunshine on my face, sinking into the sofa in the evenings, and eating cake. Not to worry, I’m back to salads and veggies so there’s a bit of room for cake without the threat of a thunder thigh invasion. And of coarse one of my favorite relaxation activities is a bit of sprucing up for spring. I simply adore the classic color combination of blue and yellow, and really most color combinations when one of the colors is blue. I stole these denim shams from the guest room. Denim just says easy going springtime to me, it’s a casual, comfortable look.
The daffodils are blooming and I’m filling the cottage with their delicate yellow petals. This old shabby cottage is getting a dose of classic cottage style and looking so bright with all of the cheerful yellow.I hung my blue BROMO bottle filled with pale yellow blooms on a window to liven up the sun porch. I did this last spring too, I guess it could be turning into some sort of odd tradition. Every spring the silly lady in the white painted cottage hangs a blue bottle in her sun porch and fills it with daffodils from her garden. Grin.
And in the front entry I added a mason jar filled with more sunshiney daffodils along with a few soft fabrics from here and there.
In the living room the daffodils are looking sweet two ways; in a silver tea pot and lined up in recycled canning jars. I’m really enjoying the contrast in here. Oh sunny days!
