elegant shabby chic finds

Happy Weekend! I’m blogging in today to show off a couple of my latest thrift store finds that don’t “say” thrift store to me at all. No, they belong more in the land of elegant shabby chic finds and cottage dreams. It’s a lovely set of ruffled dessert plates and yet another set of floral drapes that I couldn’t pass up. I’m trying to be more selective about what I bring home, but at thrift store prices, it’s always too […]

cozy winter knits

Salutations! We’ve been drowning in rain and overcast weather this past week here on the coast of Virginia. One more day of gloom and I fear I might become “one” with the sofa. Oh yes, cast me a line please! I’m in here, somewhere in the sofa with my jammies and tea. Ahem… After a week like this, when the sun does finally reappear, I’m so ready to get things going again. Today I’m talking all cozy winter knits if […]

Trentwood bowls and heirloom Booths dishes

Happy Saturday! We’re getting so spoiled here on the coast of Virginia with absolutely glorious weather, mild sunny days and clear chilly nights. We broke in the fireplace this past week and managed to get away with not cranking on the heat. I think I cooked up every comfort food recipe I know as soon as the weather turned. Night after night it’s been all chicken pot pie, sausage and three bean chili, and last night roast beef and potatoes. […]

the pillow shuffle

Happy Friday! I feel like I’m always shuffling throw pillows around in search of that perfect mix and color combination. Are you with me? And just when I think I’m there, I see something online or in a magazine that makes me go ga ga, and the shuffle begins again. This shabby quirky cottage is always looking for a little spruce up of sorts.  So here’s what the living room has going on after my latest run around the house […]

Louella euro shams

Good morning Cottage Fix friends! Some of you might remember a post I did this past spring about my more than fabulous day, I still dream about it some nights. I ordered myself a few goodies from the Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture website. This is sort of a big deal for me since I’m so in love with her merchandise, and even on sale it’s a bit out of my price range. Every now and then it’s a nice […]

Cottage Fix fall tablescape

Hola Cottage Fix friends! It finally happened, fall has landed here on the East Coast. Yay! The air is cool, a few of our windows are open, and pumpkins are popping up all over town. Please just let me bask in this autumnal delight for a week or two, just to really soak it all in. Pretty please! So with the weather starting to turn I couldn’t resist creating a bit of a fall tablescape, Cottage Fix style. I like […]

Cottage Fix shabby fall mantel

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 […]
