Cottage Fix shabby fall mantle

Salutations! I’m starting to wonder if the fall weather will ever stay put here on the ol’ east coast. Every chance I get, I pop open the windows to let in the breeze. But before I can blink twice, there’s a cold front on the way full of rain and moisture and they need to go right back down. I’m just back from a walk around the block with Miss Paisley and it’s a bit muggy and windy out, looking […]

Cottage Fix crates and candlelight

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 […]

It was so many years ago that a handsome young musician followed me around a college campus wooing me with gifts of strawberry kiwi Snapple and inviting me […]

cottage living heading into fall

Salutations! The air is finally starting to turn here. And even though it’s still quite hot, the humidity is down and the air is starting to feel fresh. We were even able to open the windows and keep them up for a few days. The weekend storm came and went without too much drama other than a few hours without power and a ton of yard clean up from the wild, wild wind. I had a good ole time playing real […]

Friday flowers from the late summer garden

Hello there Cottage Fix friends from the Virginia coast with a tropical storm heading our way. Hermine is headed straight for the Florida pan handle, and then forecast to make its way up the east coast. Those 70s I was dreaming of are looking more and more like they’ll be accompanied by buckets and buckets of rain, rain, rain. I’m still holding out hope for the sunshine and cool air to blow in on Sunday, but it looks more like […]
