Happy Friday Cottage Fix friends! Well, it’s been an interesting last week of summer around here that’s for sure. Lots of ups and downs (the downs always suck) all wrapped up into one crazy cottage with one crazy lady distracting herself by foofing and fluffing about. There’s something almost therapeutic about being busy foofing and fluffing this shabby little cottage. Honey laughs as I buzz in and out, move things around, snip flowers from the garden, poof the pillows, and whip this place into shape. It makes me feel better. And then life moves on like it always does.
We have a few medium sized projects on the horizon for fall, a couple of them were on last years fall to-do-list as well. Time just slipped away from us and then we started up with other things. Doesn’t that seem to be how it goes?
I treated myself to these deep fuchsia blooms from the flower market earlier this week to warm things up in here. I think they do the trick.As always, thanks for visiting!

Great basket filled with wonderful throws, and yes, those gorgeous flowers do wonders for lifting the spirits! I know what you mean…puttering around our homes is a terrific distraction, and very therapeutic at times!
Flowers always brighten things up! I love to putter around too, it’s one of my favorite things:)
Hope to see all your little projects in the works, inside and out, your flowers add richness to the season we are entering.
And again that basket filled with laces and linens looks nothing like a chore, yet ironing them always is….they look pretty just as is piled in its space, and looking very cottage fix.
Thank you dear for taking the time to visit me and your comments always make my day. I am working on a slow laboring armoire, working on all the sand stripping, and replacing the MDF panneling backing to a out door sidding T1-11. Not sure how much sanding I will do to complete the inside, after all the work to the outside I am dreading all the sanding to the inside. Well I may just do a light sand and a wash of paint to mute it down and call it done and aged.
Have a great weekend on heading up your projects.
I’m glad to know that I’m not the only one who doesn’t get things done in over a year! LOL! We’ve been needing to paint the inside of our garage for several years now. I thought we might get it done this year, but we still haven’t done it. Hmmmm………. Your deep purple colored flowers are very pretty. Hope they are cheering you up.
Lovely basket of pretty linens. Our to do lists go into the next year (s) too. Hope this week is better for you.
Thank you for your kind words on my blog posts. It means a lot. xo
That bright splash of fuchsia is very uplifting, Sally. I agree that house-fluffing is calming and good for the soul 😉
Just beautiful Sally! I hope all is well.
