Good morning Cottage Fix crew! We had ourselves quite a lovely weekend here. Busy, but nice. There were Indian lunches and wine suppers, coffees and long walks, and to top it all off a drive out to Williamsburg to watch my daughter race in a cross country event. It was misty raining, of course, but still fun. And then Saturday night both of our teenagers went to a high school dance and that was so exciting too.
When we awoke yesterday morning from a late night the air had turned crisp and cool, and it was a sunny happy kind of day. The kind of day where I just tend to float from one thing to the next. We went ahead and tackled that giant pile of firewood, I swear it practically floated into a stack. Hee hee, I guess that could be because I didn’t help as much as I thought. Grin. And then Farmer Brown started to tidy up our garden that’s still a mess from last weeks coastal storm.I also got to shuffle around the coffee tables and I think I’m keeping it like this. I brought the chippy paint trunk from our living room out here on the sun porch. It’s working out nicely and making it more functional in here as well. It’s the perfect spot to set a warm drink and a stack of cottage magazines on a cool autumn day – one of my favorite things.On the wicker settee, it’s a mix of neutrals with shabby chic British Rose floral pillows and a cream crochet trim throw. I really like how the brick flooring ties in with the wood tone of the trunk top. It really warms it up in here.
The living room is now sporting my old heirloom farm bench, it’s been in there one time before. I’ll get it ready for a photo shoot later on this week. For me it’s hard to get more than one room spiffed up at a time.Well I’m off to give Farmer Brown a helping hand in the garden. And then there’s that pile of wood that’s not quite gone yet. Good thing he has today off for the holiday!
See you next time!
