shabby silvery blue dining table

Salutations! I’m blogging in to all of you fine folks with a dining table makeover, a teensy tinsy bit of Christmas, and a new project that is already in the works. So things are weird here, I’m not quite sure how it happened! I finished all of my painting in the living room and distressing the table in the dining room and I’ve been soaking it all in. I feel so relieved and just a little on top of the […]

paint, paint, and more paint

I’m almost done with my colossal painting projects, only two walls left to get done. Last week one of my readers asked me how I get projects done so fast. This cracked me up because to me it seems to take forever. So I was planning on writing a response post on how to knock out a job in record speed. But truth be told come Friday evening after dinner I was so worn out I fell asleep on the […]

Look at them glow! The […]

colorful vintage quilts to brighten up our weary cottage

Hello there Cottage Fix friends! I’ve been infusing our cottage with color using these lovely vintage quilts to make things happy all around. I’m home here all week with my daughter while she’s recovering from her second ear surgery, which turned out to be more intense and invasive than the surgery she had on her other ear this past summer. She’s a trooper though, she never ceases to amaze me. So I’ve been making lots of mac & cheese and […]

sour cream pumpkin bread with chocolate chips

Oh my! This sour cream pumpkin bread with chocolate chips is over the top delicious! What an unusual yet heavenly combination with the earthy pumpkin and tangy sour cream. And then the chocolate chips take this bread to the whole next level! It’s almost too sweet to be a bread, but not quite sweet enough to qualify as a cake I’d say. It’s perfect in the morning with a hot cup of coffee or with your afternoon tea—forget about it. Just […]
