Happy Saturday Cottage Fix friends! The little shabby cottage that could has sprung a leak. Ya know, that’s the thing about living in old houses… it seems there’s always something in need of fixing. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to live in a shiny new abode where everything is shiny and new. But from what I hear even the brand spankin’ new homes start needing little projects here and there in no time at all.
So if it breaks we fix it. (mostly Mr. Manly, me… I’m more of a cheerleader!)In the early days of being a home owner I remember totally freaking out with every little thing that went wrong. I’m patting myself on the back today guys. I’m feeling much more relaxed these days when things break or simply just get so old we need to replace them, especially knowing there will always be something. Sometimes you just have to stop and smell the roses. Aren’t these roses pretty! Honey got them for me. I know he prefers tall flower bouquets so I left the stems long and displayed them on the brick floors in our sun porch. He doesn’t “get” my squatty little bouquets where I cut the stems down extra short. He’s so funny! After these open and start to flop I’ll cut them down short for a second life.I hope you all have a great weekend! Fingers crossed for smooth sailing. xoxoxo Sally
