Cottage Fix shabby fall mantel

Salutations! I’m starting to wonder if the fall weather will ever stay put here on the ol’ east coast. Every chance I get, I pop open the windows to let in the breeze. But before I can blink twice, there’s a cold front on the way full of rain and moisture and they need to go right back down. I’m just back from a walk around the block with Miss Paisley and it’s a bit muggy and windy out, looking […]

classic grays and shabby whites

Good morning Cottage Fix friends! I’m blogging in under glorious sun-filled skies and fresh dry air. I feel like I waited all summer long to say that. This summer was a hot sticky mess! And all though it’s still summertime and quite warm here on the East Coast, I can feel a hint of autumn in the air. Just a hint, just enough to know it won’t be long now before a hot pot of chili is simmering on the stove […]

romance on the sun porch

Last week was drenched in rain and storms followed by a beautiful sunshine filled weekend. We were so excited to see the sun we stayed outside all weekend and have the sunburns to prove it. And now it seems we’re back to the drizzle, damp, chilly air. Week after week of rain starts to get old—I’m over it. To help get me through, it’s all tea and soup, snugly sweaters and rain jackets, and candles and cozy blankets. Yesterday I […]

a pink kink…

Salutations! I’m blogging in today under gray skies with a chance of rain in our local forecast for the next six days. It seems our April showers are trickling into May. During long spells of rain like this, I like to line up a day or two of thrift store shopping and sometimes tackle a project on my to-do list. It depends on how motivated I’m feeling. I found a pair of Simply Shabby Chic pink and taupe floral shams […]

shabby chic cottage and gardens

Good morning Cottage Fix friends! So I don’t know if you picked up on it or not, but I’m on a bit of a shabby chic kick (obsession) at the moment. There’s something about the soft color palette and feminine details that seem to work like magic in my quirky little cottage with the silly little family inside. And fresh cuttings from the garden brighten up a softer than soft look.I added more shabby chic goodness with a soft purple […]

shabby chic details and that more than fabulous day!

Salutations Cottage Fix Crew? How are things? I’m doing just peachy for the most part, but let me tell you about last Friday. All in all it started off good! I got my workout wrapped up first thing that morning, I took Paisley for a walk around the loop, and then headed out to tackle a list of chores—a list that included the fancy grocery store. So things were all ready going good. It wasn’t any single event that day […]

How to get that easy breezy cottage look on a tiny budget; 5 ways

When you think about cottage living, what comes to mind? For me, it’s casual, inviting, charming, and easily achievable on any size budget. You don’t need to break the bank to add a few simple elements into your space to give it an easy breezy cottage look and a welcoming feel. And you won’t wind up eating Raman noodles and can soup for months to afford the look; although I must confess I’ve been there, done that for a darling […]

cottage pillows and daffodils

Salutations! We’re in the midst of some lovely weather here on the East Coast with Spring rolling in. Our shabby little cottage with the overgrown garden is in need of some love. Farmer Brown and I worked out there all day Sunday, mostly weeding and planning. Always with the weeding and the planning it seems. Oh dear Cottage Fix friends, how we do love to make a plan. So we keep on weeding and planning.  And year after year a […]
