Cottage Fix floppy drop cloth chaircover

Happy Weekend Cottage Fix friends. I’m blogging in today with my latest attempt at sprucing up our family room. Aside from a newish sofa, it’s sort of the land of the leftovers. It’s furnished with two overstuffed mismatched chairs: one from a yard sale and then this one here is a hand me down.

My grandma Lillian made me a fresh orange coconut cake […]

shabby chic bedding for a dreamy cottage look

Good morning Cottage Fix crew! We’re talking cloudy, dreamy, seriously puffy, just lay back and melt the day away bedding here at Cottage Fix today. The kind of bedding that beckons for a nap on a Tuesday afternoon. The kind of bedding that makes me wonder how bad it would really be for me to pick a fight with Honey just so I can sleep on a cloud in the guest room. Pretty bad… I know — I’m only joking […]
