coastal cottage whites ~ Spring tour

  steady rain bright green grass flip flops warm breeze fancy beach sandwiches billowy clouds white linen I used light and airy whites this Spring along with soft floral patterns and ruffles to create a coastal cottage look. Creamy whites, crochet, and soft floral shabby chic pillows in the living room are fresh for the Spring season. They work for a cottage–y look any time of the year though.

Cottage Fix clay pots inside and out

Hola Cottage Fix crew! I always love clay pots filled with seasonal flowers out in our garden, pansies in the fall, and a different annual each spring. I love this look so much in fact, that I found some for inside too. I found this little group of three clay pots at a yard sale and I filled them with herbs to grow inside. They’ve been growing for a week now and they just keep getting bigger and bigger. I […]

Happy Friday guys! The garden has been on my mind this past week with the arrival of spring and the early bloomers starting to show their stuff. So when we moved into this quirky vintage (old) cottage about five years ago now, we inherited gardens with flowering trees, ivy covered beds, and a variety of colorful perennials. I like to think we’re doing a fairly good job of keeping things going, along with adding in some of our favorite plants, […]

Hola Cottage Fix crew! I’m blogging in today under glorious sun filled skies and bright crisp air. The traditional yo yo temperatures we’re accustomed to here near the coast of Virginia are in full swing. Our weather people must stay on their toes that’s for sure. I even heard a mention of flurries in the forecast for later tonight—it was almost 80 degrees this past Wedneday. Oh yes, the floppin hoppers and toboggan worn all in the same week, a […]

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!
