Happy Birthday Miss Paisley!

We’re celebrating Paisley’s fourth birthday today! Oh yes girl, I see lots of pizza crust in your very near future. She’s becoming harder to photograph as she gets older. She’s more into sinking into the sofa or bed than sitting up pretty and posing. One of our favorite silly traditions is picking out a Christmas sweater for the birthday girl. The kiddos both especially loved this traditional red and white one I found this year. Those eyebrows get me every […]

gold above the mantel and our new friend Scout!

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 […]

Happy Birthday Miss Paisley!

Miss Paisley turns three today! Happy Birthday to my sweet girl! She’s been getting spoiled all week with a miniature schnauzer sized pancake breakfast this past Sunday and extra table scraps all week. What a mess! And she’s looking quite smug in her cozy winter sweater. Here she is last Christmas sporting big brows… Thanks for visiting! xoxo Sally

Happy Birthday Miss Paisley

Hola Cottage Fix friends! Paisley the miniature schnauzer just turned two on December 13. Happy birthday sweet girl! All she got on her birthday were some extra table scraps so I wanted to do a little something more. I guess traipsing one decked out puppy around the ole cottage and setting her up for pictures is mostly for me though. She is usually such a great sport, but a little on the hard side to photograph today. Yesterday she went […]

rainy day projects and Paisley’s fall crochet

What a long wet rainy day. Doesn’t the first Monday after the time change seem to go on forever! I always have a hard time adjusting to the time change, I’m like a toddler I guess. My internal clock just keeps on ticking — I’m hungry for lunch at ten AM and ready for lights out by 8 at night. Paisley is enjoying her new fall crochet sweater on this long soaker of a Monday. I couldn’t resist sharing it with […]

Miss Paisley and a bundle of fluff

Salutations! Look who decided to help me change the sheets today—it’s Miss Paisley the miniature schnauzer. She does this every time I make the bed. Which is, of course, daily. Grin. “Hey guys, I like soft snugly bundles of fluffy stuff.” Yes, it’s true. As I’m writing this, it reminds me of one of my son’s childhood friends, a sweet little girl that lived in our apartment complex in California. They were in preschool together at the end of our […]

so how about fall?

Hello there! We have been enjoying some lovely mild and sunny weather here near the east coast which is so nice after the hard rain we had last week. The sweet fall air is slowly blowing in and I’m diggin’ it. Yes, I’ll take a week or two of crisp sunny days, oh say around 75 degrees or so, with a light northern breeze. Pretty please Al Roker! Grin! I tend to drag a bit when it comes to changing […]

Sunday morning with Paisley

Miss Paisley and I had ourselves a fun little Sunday morning, and Honey too.  There’s nothing like a nice walk with Paisley, followed by a “I can barely make it” jog to jump start Sunday morning!  And then honey was off to do yard work while I scrubbed the cottage doors and worked a bit in the garden. I’m just finishing up now and I’m beat.
