Cottage Fix summer garden and white blooms

Well hello there Cottage Fix friends! All is good here, things are moving right along. I’m feeling much better after flopping on the sofa for all of last week—that summer cold took me down. I was beginning to wonder if I’d ever wear anything other than pajama bottoms and a raggedy old T-shirt again.

sunny garden days — Tuesday

Salutations!  Okay, I just can’t resist.  We are headed into a week of absolutely gorgeous weather.  I can’t stand it, it’s so beautiful outside.  So I’m celebrating with a week of sunny garden days.  It starts today and will run for the next three days featuring the garden and casual floral arrangements using blooms from the garden.

It was actually lovely with floral decoupage on the doors, but it did not go with what I had going on in the guest room so out came the white paint. Once upon a time it lived happily in my daughter’s room, but apparently she is not a little girl any more and has outgrown […]
