  steady rain bright green grass flip flops warm breeze fancy beach sandwiches billowy clouds white linen I used light and airy whites this Spring along with soft floral patterns and ruffles to create a coastal cottage look. Creamy whites, crochet, and soft floral shabby chic pillows in the living room are fresh for the Spring season. They work for a cottage–y look any time of the year though.

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 […]

vintage floral drapes

Hola Cottage Fix friends! I’ve been super busy this week with lots of little projects and clearing out extra furniture and clutter. I was ever so gently informed at the supper table last week that we have too many, too much furniture. Apparently, there has been some toe stubbing happening as the family has not yet learned the places in this ol’ cottage that require the side step shuffle. That is one hazard of shopping thrift and bringing home road […]

Sally verses the curtains: round two!

I’m here again, blogging in the family room again, about curtains again. Thank you all for the sweet compliments you left last week about my newly painted pale blue family room and warm white window treatments. And it was also nice to hear from some of you that I’m not the only one that has a hard time when it comes to dressing windows. There may be 50 shades of grey, but I’m fairly certain there are a zillion shades […]

barely blue wall color and warm white drapes

Salutations! Well it’s hot here on the east coast to say the least. When I headed out for my morning walk with Paisley it didn’t seem that bad. But, I’m just back now from errands and it’s thick and muggy! So glad to be here in the AC with my freshly painted barely blue walls. I’m here in the family room today with a new barely blue wall color and creamy white drapes on our back slider. Actually the blue […]

cottage style bathroom remodel

Hello guys! I believe I promised an unveiling of our cottage style bathroom remodel that’s been a part of this girls cottage life for a few too many months now. I have to say it’s getting lots of use, we obviously really needed an extra functioning bathroom. But with two teenagers, it’s been hard to get it tidied up long enough to snap a few photos. The cabinet that will be going above the throne is proving to be a […]

rugs, drapes, and lamps, oh my!

Happy Weekend! The cold is here on the coast of Virginia. We’re talking “get out the wool socks and light the fire people” — brrr it’s chilly. Still, the sun is shining and the air is crisp and clear, so it’s not all that bad. You’d never even know it’s freezing outside from indoors, which is where I am and plan to stay. It looks glorious looking out through the windows. So let us start with the elephant in the room […]
