cottage fix loves prairie rose!

Hola Cottage Fix crew! I’m blogging in today with this gorgeous prairie rose fabric I ordered on super sale. It’s from the Rachel Ashwell online shop. There are so many beautiful fabrics on discount right now in their sale section, unfortunately prairie rose went back to regular price. I was lucky enough to snag up enough for pillows while it was still cheap. This is one of my all time favorite fabrics, and when I saw it on sale I […]

summer snaps

Happy Friday! Hope everyone is having a great summer. It rained here for 34 days straight, give or take a day. Grin. The sunshine is back along with the heat and humidity, and our garden has grown wild. I’m excited to get out there tomorrow to help honey get things looking a bit better—fingers crossed I don’t melt! We went on a little beach vacation at the end of June, and July has flown on by. I can’t believe how […]

Cottage Fix Friday flowers from the garden

Happy Friday Cottage Fix friends! Our garden is growing wild this year, or as I like to say; the green machine is kickin’! The hydrangea are especially thriving now that the shade tree we cut back is starting to fill in and provide a bit of canopy from the afternoon sun. We’ve also been getting bucket loads of rain resulting in an abundance of lush green. Unfortunately, the weeds also seem to be enjoying all this rain. But they’re not […]

Aubusson blue painted hutch

Salutations! How about this lovely shade of Aubusson blue, one of my favorite shades of blue I think. It’s a deep rich blue with just a hint of green. I went back and forth about painting this old vintage hutch of mine. But after I finished dousing the dining room walls in this soft taupe, I thought a shot of color would liven it up. One of my go to furniture painting tricks is to take my Annie Sloan chalk […]

decorating mojo… raspberry floral and taupe

Hola Cottage Fix friends!! Long time no see. Well, it’s about time I got back to it I think. It was a long winter for me with a relentless bout of family illnesses (just one after another) and snow (not a fan!). And then the illnesses trickled right on into Spring with Paisley our sweet Schnauzer pup. I’d like to forecast smooth sailing from here on out—fingers crossed. The past couple of days have been all sunshine, wellness, and good […]

welcoming 2018 with simplicity and color

Happy New Year Cottage Fix crew! After the holiday glitz and dazzle get packed away and carted up the attic stairs our cottage always looks so bare to me. The sparkle of twinkly lights and shine of vintage baubles are missed indeed. But even so, after the holidays I always find myself craving a clean fresh look. And although I haven’t made any new purchases or tackled any DIY projects lately, I have a simple clean look in mind that […]

Christmastime xo

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 […]

Friday sunflowers and a case of bad luck

Hola Cottage Fix Crew! Not much in the way of foofing going on for me these days in my little section of cyber-land. It’s been a case of bad luck here with one thing after another going wrong for what feels like an eternity now. Cars breaking down, appliances breaking down, and to top it all off, three out of four family members breaking down—what the heck is going on! We’re nursing various sports injuries, and I was stuck on […]
