hydrangeas and the flag

Salutations! We’re in the midst of a lounge-y four day holiday weekend with lots of cooking, gardening, vegging out on the sofa, and biking and hiking in the nearby trails. It’s been a mix of sunshine and storms which we’re really enjoying. An afternoon storm at the end of a hot humid day is always a treat for me, as long as I’m already at home that is. The storms roll in and pound us with rain and lightning, exiting […]

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 […]

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 […]

cottage fix Friday Flower Power

Hola Cottage Fix Friends! Yesterday Honey and I celebrated 20 years of marriage bliss, my how time does fly by. It was a cloudy, muggy Virginia sort of day, but we made the most of it. Making the most of things and laughing at one self is the secret to “happily ever after” I’d say. If you ask honey, he’d say communication. He’s probably right. One thing we both learned to do over the years is “just say yes” to […]

shabby chic reading corner

Hola! All is well here on the home front. Yesterday I was feeling like a bit of a shuffle-around. It’s been in the back of my brain for a while now and I couldn’t put it off much longer. So I coerced my strong teenage son to help move things around, having teenagers isn’t all bad. Grin. Plus there’s something in it for him, and of course you know that always helps. The daybed and end table from our guest […]

a casual cottage sun porch with a vintage rocker

Happy Weekend Cottage Fix Friends! I’m blogging in today with a vintage wicker rocking chair update and some cozy comfort on our sun porch. Do you remember that sweet little rocker I found this past summer at Class and Trash? The one that is incredibly tiny and in need of a seat cushion and a good scrub. I always seem to be bring home things that need to be cleaned — I wonder what that means? So I brought her […]

accessories and road kill

I’m sure you’ve been losing sleep wondering where those bright blue accessories from the sun porch have disappeared to — I know I have.  Painting the sun porch white has created sort of a ricochet effect throughout our little cottage and everything is all mixed up and turned around!  It happens! Well, there they are.  I decided to use the wicker chairs in the dining room all dolled up with the bright blue floral pillows. I mixed in a couple […]
