Cottage Fix fall tablescape

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 mantel

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 […]

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 summer bathroom doused in whites

Hola Cottage Fix friends! The first few times I shared our bathroom remodel with you I was always so careful to crop out the throne whenever possible. This made it especially challenging to photograph. But I just decided it’s a bathroom and it’s got a pot, wouldn’t be much of a bathroom without one! I’m sure you all assumed we put one in there. Grin. So today I’m sharing images of the kiddos summertime bathroom, and yes, it has a […]

cottage pillows and daffodils

Salutations! We’re in the midst of some lovely weather here on the East Coast with Spring rolling in. Our shabby little cottage with the overgrown garden is in need of some love. Farmer Brown and I worked out there all day Sunday, mostly weeding and planning. Always with the weeding and the planning it seems. Oh dear Cottage Fix friends, how we do love to make a plan. So we keep on weeding and planning.  And year after year a […]

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 […]

a stary bright New Year!

Hidy Ho Cottage Fix friends! We are enjoying some “sink on into it” time off around here. My honey took off a full two weeks for the holidays so he has been home the entire time the kiddos are home for Winter Break. We are enjoying some serious do-nothing kind of days. We shopped at the fancy supermarket in town, cooked seafood, enjoyed late loungy suppers and even later mornings. We went to the gym, hung out with friends and […]

pink roses at Christmas

Salutations Cottage Fix friends! How’s the decorating, shopping, baking, and Christmas shenanigans going at your place. We’re moving right along here. Give me just one more afternoon in the shops and my list will be completely checked off. I’d also like to bake a few holiday treats if this cold I’m fighting ever clears. Why in the world I get a cold at Christmastime each and every year is beyond me. I’m trying to stay peachy bright in spite though.My […]
