French toile and lace

Salutations! Fall has definitely found its way to the East Coast and it’s feelin’ fine. The air is crisp and cool, the sun is shining, and the bright colors of autumn are covering the trees. It’s like a warm blanket of sunshine on the nearby trail. Ahh… can you tell I really like fall? As much as I hate to be working indoors when all these lovely things are happening outside, I have been slowly chipping away at the family […]

my love of a white painted cottage

Hello there! Thanks for popping over today to share in my latest obsession, my love of a white painted cottage. Give me light, bright and airy! Give me white! It’s not really a new obsession I suppose, but it’s one I try to put out of my mind for the fear I might actually take things to the next step and get out the paint brush. Ever since I painted the sun porch white, I’ve been completely over the moon […]

decorating with autumn leaves for cottage style

Salutations fine friends of blogland! What a crazy weekend we’ve had here in the little cottage we call home. Where life either goes full speed ahead or seems to tick by so slowly that you could watch the leaves change right before your eyes. This weekend we’ve had a bit of both. It was Honeys birthday on Saturday and we’ve had a lot going on with a pizza party and honey out in the yard all day. He spent his […]

breezy lace in the front windows

Salutations! The cottage is feeling a little on the quiet side now that the kids are back in school and I’ve got the place to myself for a while each day.  Good thing I’ve got Miss Paisley to shower me with never ending puppy snuggles whenever I’m willing to sit still for a moment. She happens to be taking advantage of blogging time right now and is here on my lap. She’s a funny little dog! Her kids are so […]

organize your bookcase with baskets and lace

Our home office has been driving me bonkers! I spend time in here everyday and I’ve been feeling like I’m drowning in junk — buried in papers, wires, and clutter. Well, I decided to stop complaining and get to work, one thing at a time, starting with the bookcases. If you’re like me your bookcase is not only overflowing with books, but all sorts of other stuff too.  I can’t stand clutter, but baskets and lace I adore!  It’s easy to hide […]

shabby chic window treatments in the kitchen

Life has been moving in full speed this week with jam packed days of soccer games, doctor appointments, and musical performances. I don’t mind it though. I stumbled upon a couple of hours this morning and decided to have coffee and a snuggle with sweet Paisley on the sofa — ahh … what a nice start to what is shaping up to be one crazy day of running around town.

light and airy curtains

Oh dear, the curtain saga, let me tell you – it is endless.  At first I wanted shades, and then, naaa maybe drapes, nope that won’t work either. I thought about tone on tone stripes, but with the horizontal stripes of the shutters I thought it would look a bit busy.  Agreed?  This is the guest room window and though you may not be able to tell from the photo, it faces the street, and therefore requires something light in […]
