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 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 […]

evening light

Hello there Cottage Fix friends! It’s starting to feel a bit like summer here in Virginia and I’m diggin’ it. This past weekend we spent Saturday afternoon at the beach with friends, and Sunday Farmer Brown and I tackled the front garden. We’re on a mission this summer, let me tell ya! Every flower bed in our yard is overtaken with ivy and weeds (I blame all the rain, rain, rain). The ivy is climbing high up into the trees […]

romance on the sun porch

Last week was drenched in rain and storms followed by a beautiful sunshine filled weekend. We were so excited to see the sun we stayed outside all weekend and have the sunburns to prove it. And now it seems we’re back to the drizzle, damp, chilly air. Week after week of rain starts to get old—I’m over it. To help get me through, it’s all tea and soup, snugly sweaters and rain jackets, and candles and cozy blankets. Yesterday I […]

Cottage Fix all thawed out

Happy Friday ladies (and gentlemen)! Things are getting back to normal around here now that we’re all thawed out. I enjoyed a very nice week with the kiddos since they had two days off from school and the other days half off for exams. One day we even all plopped out in the family room and watched two movies in a row, complete with hot cocoa. It felt super indulgent to be watching movies all afternoon on a Monday, but […]

white candles and a winter storm

Hola Cottage Fix friends! Have you heard about the East Coast storm they forecasted on the news? Well we’re right in the midst of it here on the coast of Virginia. We’re not getting hit nearly as bad as the folks up north, but the roads are covered in ice and snow. Our cozy little cottage is surrounded by a layer of icey cold. I went to the supermarket to stock up on supplies on Thursday, though I wasn’t really […]

Cottage Fix five favorite things for winter survival

As the days get shorter and the air begins to chill there are a few things I’m loving for keeping this shabby little cottage cozy and snug. Some of these I gave as gifts this year, some of them were given to me as gifts, and some of them I just gifted to myself. Bam. I brought home the white roses to use in this blog post today. And let me tell you, as soon as I got them in […]
