white candles and a winter storm

Hola Cottage Fix friends! Have you heard about the East Coast storm they forecasted on the news? Well we’re right in the midst of it here on the coast of Virginia. We’re not getting hit nearly as bad as the folks up north, but the roads are covered in ice and snow. Our cozy little cottage is surrounded by a layer of icey cold. I went to the supermarket to stock up on supplies on Thursday, though I wasn’t really […]

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 […]

Cottage Fix fresh blue hydrangeas from the market

Good morning Cottage Fix friends. We have flowers here looking pretty on the window sill in our living room, fresh blue hydrangeas from the market. I’m on a blue kick at the moment, which is really no different from any other time I guess. I went thinking pink and came home with blue. And my daughter sweet talked me into sunflowers for the guest bathroom too. She really had to lay it on thick – wink. I’m such a sucker […]

Sally verses the curtains: round two!

I’m here again, blogging in the family room again, about curtains again. Thank you all for the sweet compliments you left last week about my newly painted pale blue family room and warm white window treatments. And it was also nice to hear from some of you that I’m not the only one that has a hard time when it comes to dressing windows. There may be 50 shades of grey, but I’m fairly certain there are a zillion shades […]

barely blue wall color and warm white drapes

Salutations! Well it’s hot here on the east coast to say the least. When I headed out for my morning walk with Paisley it didn’t seem that bad. But, I’m just back now from errands and it’s thick and muggy! So glad to be here in the AC with my freshly painted barely blue walls. I’m here in the family room today with a new barely blue wall color and creamy white drapes on our back slider. Actually the blue […]

Cottage Fix rustic baskets and summer whites

Salutations! We’re in the midst of a serious heat wave here on the east coast; I’m certain you could fry an egg on the blacktop in the afternoons. The air is thick and alive with the sounds of cicadas. I’m ever so happy to get through with my morning walk and retire to the air conditioning for the remainder of these hot, muggy days. I’m having a good ole time rearranging, shuffling mirrors around, and catching up on the massive […]
