Hello there Cottage Fix friends. It feels like it’s been raining here for days now, which is just about true. Whenever it rains steady like this for days at a time, I start to feel like I’m on the movie set of Godzilla with Mathew Broderick. Anybody see that one? It’s an oldy, but a goody! The cast spends much of the movie out in the pouring rain chasing and running from the big scaly girl.
Yesterday I was ever so lucky to be out and about without an umbrella and got soaking wet. What an airhead! Today I’m cozy–in’ up inside and setting that rainy weather mood. A couple of farmhouse crates and some candlelight along with the warm whites on the sun porch are turning this frown upside down. This is so much better than being pelted by raindrops. Now where are my fuzzy slippers?Even though the weather is starting to turn, we’re still waiting on fall here. The windows are all closed up tight, and the AC’s still humming away. It’s not incredibly hot or anything, but the sticky muggy air is hanging on tight. The pumpkins and pine cones can wait until the weather catches up. I broke out the pumpkin spice coffee over the weekend though, couldn’t wait a moment longer for that!These are the farmhouse crates from my aunt (I shared them a few weeks back). They are so versatile and also extra special to me since they came from my great grandparents apple orchard. On the sun porch they make charming little side tables for candles or coffee and magazines. And their petite size doesn’t impose on this tiny space. It’s sort of a rustic farm meets shabby chic thing going on out here. Looking forward to a sunny weekend forecast!
