Christmas 2018

Merry Christmas! I hope you and your loved ones have a wonderful holiday season. I kept our cottage decorating simple this year with fresh greenery, baubles, and a touch of sparkle. Fresh greenery and a homemade baking cup garland on our mantle. I filled this dough bowl with greenery and pomegranates along with dollar store candles to create an easy going centerpiece. I purchased the glassware from the dollar store as well and then filled the bottom with table sugar […]

Happy Birthday Miss Paisley!

We’re celebrating Paisley’s fourth birthday today! Oh yes girl, I see lots of pizza crust in your very near future. She’s becoming harder to photograph as she gets older. She’s more into sinking into the sofa or bed than sitting up pretty and posing. One of our favorite silly traditions is picking out a Christmas sweater for the birthday girl. The kiddos both especially loved this traditional red and white one I found this year. Those eyebrows get me every […]

Happy Holidays Cottage Fix Crew! Decorating… check! Everything else holiday/Christmas-y…not so much. Christmas trees started appearing on car tops the day after Thanksgiving which is a sight I love to see. But it also made me feel like I was already falling behind on my elf duties. Well, the cottage is all decked out and I have a shopping list started in my head. And — I saw a recipe on the Chew that looks yummy to take to my parent’s […]

I decided to just get things going this past week and spent an evening wrapping gifts with my She and Him Christmas album blaring in the background. I chose plain brown paper for wrapping and then went a little […]

Happy Birthday Miss Paisley!

Miss Paisley turns three today! Happy Birthday to my sweet girl! She’s been getting spoiled all week with a miniature schnauzer sized pancake breakfast this past Sunday and extra table scraps all week. What a mess! And she’s looking quite smug in her cozy winter sweater. Here she is last Christmas sporting big brows… Thanks for visiting! xoxo Sally

cottage fix Christmas tree

Well guys, the Cottage Fix Christmas tree has landed. Honey and I picked her out ourselves and she’s quite the looker. I don’t know why, but it seems even when I deck our place out with a couple of little trees here and there throughout this old cottage, it doesn’t feel like Christmas to me until there’s a full size tree standing proud in our living room. The kiddos were double booked this past weekend so Honey and I decided […]

twinkle, sparkle, and vintage baubles xoxo

Happy Holidays! The Christmas cheer is well under way here at Cottage Fix with sparkly lights and vintage baubles in all of our nooks and crannies. It’s always been about the glitze and lights for me, the world lit up with magic and hope. The twinkle and sparkle of the lights seem to fill town after town with joy and the Christmas spirit. When our kiddos were just wee little guys we had a tradition of driving them around late […]
