summer love

The latest summer view on our sun porch and at the nearby trail. I simplified our sun porch with the addition of three white linen pillows that I borrowed from our living room. I”m digging this clean fresh look on our sun porch doused in sunshine and whites. I scored these classic linen favorites a while back from H&M. xoxo Sally

sun porch mirror,shabby chic styling, and quiet

Salutations! I’ve been having some fun here in my quirky little cottage with the wonky furnishings and shabby decor while this homestead is feeling not quite so full. Honey has been on work travel for what seems like most of the summer, and the long, hot days are feeling even longer. So to keep myself busy in those quiet hours between morning and night, when the supper dishes are still drying, and mother nature has cast her magical sort of […]

garden hydrangeas

Salutations and happy summer! Our summer garden is in full swing and the hydrangeas are blooming a variety of colors this year. From deep purple to classic blue, they are one of my favorite flowers, especially to cut and bring inside. I picked a couple of new blooms in lime green to add to this bouquet too. One was on it’s way to turning purple and the other blue. So I did some investigating about hydrangea color… Can you manipulate […]

These are in pinks […]

cottage fix blooming spring, whites, and ruffles

Hola Cottage Fix crew and happy weekend! Spring is bloom, blooming away here near the coast of Virginia and it’s just beautiful. There’s a cherry blossom in full bloom at the round-about near the entrance to our neighborhood that wins first prize for sure—the prettiest cherry blossom I’ve seen. I need to walk down there and get a good long look, and maybe even a quick iPhone photo. I’m just not sure I can snap a quick shot without getting […]

cottage fix cherry blossoms

Happy Friday guys! The garden has been on my mind this past week with the arrival of spring and the early bloomers starting to show their stuff. So when we moved into this quirky vintage (old) cottage about five years ago now, we inherited gardens with flowering trees, ivy covered beds, and a variety of colorful perennials. I like to think we’re doing a fairly good job of keeping things going, along with adding in some of our favorite plants, […]
