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 […]

cottage fix Friday flowers on the sun porch

Happy Friday guys! It’s so beautiful here, it’s what everyone’s talking about around town. The sun is shining, the birds are busy, and the daffodils are starting to bloom. Glorious! If only we could send some sunshine to our friends down south who are getting pelted with rain and flooding!! For the first time in a long while, I don’t need to report on something that’s broken or burst. Believe me, I’m knocking on wood and crossing my fingers as […]

paint it white and look for Spring

Good morning Cottage Fix friends! I’m blogging in today under beautiful blue skies and the promise of mild sunny days for the remainder of this week. Yes, Spring is in the air and it’s time to get things going—or bust. I had a bit of a cheat in the hallway here with this light and airy white paint. I hired my dear professional painting friend to paint it for me, you know with the super high ceilings in the stairwell […]

Good morning Cottage Fix crew! We’re talking cloudy, dreamy, seriously puffy, just lay back and melt the day away bedding here at Cottage Fix today. The kind of bedding that beckons for a nap on a Tuesday afternoon. The kind of bedding that makes me wonder how bad it would really be for me to pick a fight with Honey just so I can sleep on a cloud in the guest room. Pretty bad… I know — I’m only joking […]

Cottage Fix five favorite things for winter survival

As the days get shorter and the air begins to chill there are a few things I’m loving for keeping this shabby little cottage cozy and snug. Some of these I gave as gifts this year, some of them were given to me as gifts, and some of them I just gifted to myself. Bam. I brought home the white roses to use in this blog post today. And let me tell you, as soon as I got them in […]

cozyin’ up the sun porch and a coffee table shuffle

Good morning Cottage Fix crew! We had ourselves quite a lovely weekend here. Busy, but nice. There were Indian lunches and wine suppers, coffees and long walks, and to top it all off a drive out to Williamsburg to watch my daughter race in a cross country event. It was misty raining, of course, but still fun. And then Saturday night both of our teenagers went to a high school dance and that was so exciting too. When we awoke […]

daffodils blooming…classic spring cottage

Salutations cottage fix friends. I’m just taking things easy the last few days. Oh yes, lots of rest and relaxation along with the regular daily chores of one domestic goddess. We’re not starting any new projects or makeovers until our bathroom remodel is 100% complete. And since at the moment we’re on hiadis from all that, lots of long walks with Paisley, watching my daughters games with the sunshine on my face, sinking into the sofa in the evenings, and […]

Hello there ladies of blogland and fine people of the world wide web. Long time no see! Things are finally getting back to normal here and I have a thousand projects to get finished before Thanksgiving. Yes, me having a thousand projects on my mind is normal around here. I made Thanksgiving my deadline because I like to make our household extra chaotic, and so come December the kiddos and I can decorate for Christmas in a project free cottage […]
