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, […]

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 […]

Hola Cottage Fix crew! I’m blogging in today under glorious sun filled skies and bright crisp air. The traditional yo yo temperatures we’re accustomed to here near the coast of Virginia are in full swing. Our weather people must stay on their toes that’s for sure. I even heard a mention of flurries in the forecast for later tonight—it was almost 80 degrees this past Wedneday. Oh yes, the floppin hoppers and toboggan worn all in the same week, a […]

Saturday tulips

Happy Weekend Cottage Fix crew! I’ve sort of been hibernating in my own little bubble lately, which isn’t really that unusual for me when it’s cold out. Trying out new recipes, getting my creative energy out, and the mundane tasks of daily chores are keeping me on my toes here in my shabby little cottage. There’s nothing I like more than a day filled with the household rituals of hot coffee, a spot of cleaning, folding a load of fresh […]

the pillow shuffle

Happy Friday! I feel like I’m always shuffling throw pillows around in search of that perfect mix and color combination. Are you with me? And just when I think I’m there, I see something online or in a magazine that makes me go ga ga, and the shuffle begins again. This shabby quirky cottage is always looking for a little spruce up of sorts.  So here’s what the living room has going on after my latest run around the house […]
