Blog It Forward with Wayfair

Salutations! I’m blogging in today with a big chill on the way Cottage Fix friends and it’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas. There’s something about this time of year that seems to put a magnifying glass on life; things that are happy seem happier and things that are sad much sadder. Well it seems that I have the chance to spread a bit of good in my tiny slice of the world. So here we go… I’m happy […]

Cottage Fix Christmas greenery and garlands

Salutations! Cottage Fix is doused in fresh greenery and garlands and it feels like Christmas at last. It’s funny, each year as the holiday season begins I worry that I don’t feel very Christmasy. The stores decorate, the songs play, and the parties start, but Christmas seems like it’s just flirting with me on the sidelines rather than asking me to dance. And then, bit by bit the wonder, the bustle, the traditions—they slowly come. Sometimes ever elusive and sometimes […]

we went down hard

We both got a big ole dose of that nasty flu bug that is hitting our country hard this season. This will be my second Christmas in a row stuck on the sofa missing out on some of the festivities. […]

“The Christmas Waltz”

  Frosted window panes, candles gleaming inside Painted candy canes on the tree Santa’s on his way, he’s filled his sleigh with things Things for you and for me It’s that time of year when the world falls in love Every song you hear seems to say “Merry Christmas” “May your New Year dreams come true” And this song of mine in three-quarter time Wishes you and yours the same thing, too “The Christmas Waltz” was written by Sammy Cahn […]

fresh pine and more cottage Christmas

Salutations from the little Christmas cottage on the East Coast that’s soaking in the Christmas magic and maybe running around a little like a chicken with it’s head cut off! Ya know they really do that. My mom has a story or two about my great grandmother and her farm and chickens and you see where this is going. The cottage is all decked out. I like to keep things fairly simple and the kiddos like to put out every […]

easy overnight sticky buns for Christmas morning

Every season I try to come up with an easy treat to whip up for the family on Christmas morning. A few years ago I tried already prepared frozen treats that thaw overnight and you bake in the morning. Another year I made Belgium yeast waffles that had to be started the night before. I started this yummy confection last night and this morning just popped it in oven to bake at 350 degrees F (175 C for the rest […]

the magic of Christmas

Ok you guys. It’s here – the hustle and bustle, the energy of the holiday season. What it is exactly, it’s hard to say. You can feel it in the air and see it in the sparkle of the night. It tickles your nose in the chilly air and kisses your toes by the roaring fire. It’s the magic of Christmas and it sneaks up on you when your not looking. For me, it has always been the tree. I […]
