Salutations from the spring-y coast of ol’ VA! It’s looking like we’re getting treated to an early spring here in the land of shabby cottage treasures and charming cheeky puppies! The air is warm by late morning and the color is blooming all over town. Give me spring, lots of spring… in late February! Grin. fresh cut grass juicy strawberries birds singing their song pink trees waking with the sun I’m always changing things around with the seasons, and sometimes […]
Salutations! Welcome to a project that took me way too long to complete. Here’s our big fat white wall right smack dab when you enter through our front door, the one that’s been keeping me up at night for, oh I’d say the past four years. It’s a ton of wall space and I couldn’t seem to figure out what in the world to do with it. When we first brought in the piano I hung a large mirror over […]
Salutations! I’m blogging in today with a sweet little vintage mirror I hung in our stairwell. Its unique shape and etching detail makes it quite the looker. I was so nervous about this! Not the mirror exactly, but the hole I was about to hammer into my freshly painted plaster. Yikes! This pretty little mirror sat in the living room for a week or so taunting me until I finally got out the hammer and went for it. Yes, I […]
Good morning Cottage Fix Crew! We’re getting back on track here after a long run of rotten luck. Our washing machine quit working this past weekend, and along with a dryer that’s been on the fritz for the past year or so we went ahead and purchased a new set. Our bad luck has become almost comical! Honestly we’re walking on pins and needles around here waiting for the next thing to break or crack. Yikes! Without that pesky laundry […]
Salutations! I’ve been at it again, shuffling things around, up to shenanigans, or what Honey likes to call “up to no good!” He’ll be happy to know that this collection of vintage mirrors was created with the ones I had already acquired on another day when I was knee deep in some other shenanigans. I just brought them all together to hang out and get to know one another here on the big blank wall in our living room—the big […]
Happy Friday guys! I’m blogging in today with a sweet little French inspired vintage mirror. I’m not entirely sure of it’s history, but to me it looks a little French/Paris apartment like. Of course a super chic mirror must feel right at home in this shabby filled cottage with a lady who spends her mornings blogging in pajamas. That’s chic, right? It’s certainly a mixed bag around here. While cottage and everything cottage will always be my first and number […]
So I’m probably supposed to be saving all the progress for a big reveal at the end of our bathroom remodel, but I’m not good at keeping surprises. And we now have tiles gleaming in our upstairs bathroom, white subway on the walls and marble hex on the floor. I can’t stop marching up the stairs to make sure it’s all real. Mr. Manly busted his behind this past weekend working on the trim, electrical, and hanging this crystal chandelier […]
Salutations! Well, I’m at it again. Our mantle has been feeling a little left out lately. Yes, I’m afraid she has been somewhat over looked and maybe even a bit neglected while the rest of our living room has been getting doused in Summertime blues. She has been patiently awaiting her turn ready for the freshness of Summer to head her way. I thought this vintage mirror in robins egg blue might just do the trick.
