welcoming 2018 with simplicity and color

Happy New Year Cottage Fix crew! After the holiday glitz and dazzle get packed away and carted up the attic stairs our cottage always looks so bare to me. The sparkle of twinkly lights and shine of vintage baubles are missed indeed. But even so, after the holidays I always find myself craving a clean fresh look. And although I haven’t made any new purchases or tackled any DIY projects lately, I have a simple clean look in mind that […]

Friday flowers ~ garden blooms in a blue Ball jar

Hola fine people of the world wide webernet! I’m blogging in today with a wild looking bouquet plucked straight from the back garden. I arranged these in my grandma’s old blue Ball jar. This perennial flower is a bright pink daisy–like bloom with an orange center, i’d say the coloring is very similar to the pink cone flower. I always love when these start to appear out back, it means fall is not far off. This patch of late summer […]

Honey has been on work travel for what seems like most of the summer, and the long, hot days are feeling even longer. So to keep myself busy in those quiet hours between morning and night, when the supper dishes are still drying, and mother nature has cast her magical sort of […]

happy cottage color

Hello there fine people of blogland! How are you? It’s been quite busy around here the past few weeks and I’m ready to get going on some decorating changes that I’ve been milling over. Let me tell you—if you want a wall color that will instantly improve your mood and put a smile on your face, paint it yellow! This is our guest room/game room, and every time I come in here I wonder why I didn’t paint my whole […]
