  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. Paisley loves her floor pillows, I changed out the covers to […]

cozy winter knits

Salutations! We’ve been drowning in rain and overcast weather this past week here on the coast of Virginia. One more day of gloom and I fear I might become “one” with the sofa. Oh yes, cast me a line please! I’m in here, somewhere in the sofa with my jammies and tea. Ahem… After a week like this, when the sun does finally reappear, I’m so ready to get things going again. Today I’m talking all cozy winter knits if […]

pretty packages and a rainbow of baubles

Happy Holidays Cottage Fix crew! Well, we’re all decorated here and the Christmas train is chug chuggin’ along. I only have a few more things to check off my list until I’m chilling in the caboose with a glass of Pinot. I decided to just get things going this past week and spent an evening wrapping gifts with my She and Him Christmas album blaring in the background. I chose plain brown paper for wrapping and then went a little […]

The kiddos were double booked this past weekend so Honey and I decided […]

twinkle, sparkle, and vintage baubles xoxo

Happy Holidays! The Christmas cheer is well under way here at Cottage Fix with sparkly lights and vintage baubles in all of our nooks and crannies. It’s always been about the glitze and lights for me, the world lit up with magic and hope. The twinkle and sparkle of the lights seem to fill town after town with joy and the Christmas spirit. When our kiddos were just wee little guys we had a tradition of driving them around late […]

Hola Cottage Fix friends! It finally happened, fall has landed here on the East Coast. Yay! The air is cool, a few of our windows are open, and pumpkins are popping up all over town. Please just let me bask in this autumnal delight for a week or two, just to really soak it all in. Pretty please! So with the weather starting to turn I couldn’t resist creating a bit of a fall tablescape, Cottage Fix style. I like […]

Cottage Fix shabby fall mantle

Salutations! I’m starting to wonder if the fall weather will ever stay put here on the ol’ east coast. Every chance I get, I pop open the windows to let in the breeze. But before I can blink twice, there’s a cold front on the way full of rain and moisture and they need to go right back down. I’m just back from a walk around the block with Miss Paisley and it’s a bit muggy and windy out, looking […]
