I've been tinkering a little with the small cottage bathroom........looking forward to Spring! We have been blessed so far with a little snow and not much ice.
I found these SWEET galvanized letters the other day from a shop called Dresser up. The owners name is Wendy and she specializes in Vintage and paint w/painting classes. She has a FB page...check her out!

Since it's soooo cold outside......I've been busy inside. The kitchen is basically finished except a little trim around the baseboard. I am looking to add a few vintage glass cake stands to my collection and it's always fun to change/add to the decor for the seasons.
I am very pleased how this tiny kitchen turned out (8x9) and my Ken did a wonderful job! I am happy with the selections we made..as in the farmhouse sink, Martha Stewart cabinets and hardware, the IKEA butcher block, and the shelving I put together myself from Home Depot. Note: Martha's shelving/brackets were $1,200..no way! This shelving and brackets cost around $200 (tax included)
I really like the vintage/retro style GE stove and the fridge fit perfect.
The lavender in the pitcher is from my garden at the farmhouse.....it still smells wonderful~~~

Here are a few pictures.......we have much "loose ends" to do before Christmas. So many have been asking how is everything coming along?.........(response.......S*L*O*W) Basically, we moved in and collapsed...
This picture is the front room or as I call it "The Keeping Room". I don't know what that word means but I like the saying. I'm not sure what the room is keeping except all of my JUNKING stuff~~~
Blessings to each and everyone of you and your families!~~~~~Roxie

Do you notice a change in the front of the cottage? The concrete slab piece in front of the diamond grid picture window is gone forever~~~and a small slab piece to the far right is no longer there. Yeah!
The concrete that is left will be changed/or removed next Spring....Hubby and I are still working on a plan for that change.
We haven't decided if we are going too put any landscape out in front this Fall or wait till Spring....I believe we will wait.
Ken has started around the corner to the left replacing damaged cedar shakes before Winter sets in. I can't wait to see that improvement. Still a lot to do...some painting of trim and copper gutters but what an improvement!
Have a wonderful blessed week~~~Roxie

This is a basic, simple look ..... I have a few wall areas I need to fill.....it's good for now!
I want to add a little industrial, rustic look in places too! Once we get officially moved...then the decorating fun begins!
Have a blessed and wonderful week~~~from one sweetie to another~~~Roxie

I was "ran" out of the house.....(I guess I'm in their way).... the kitchen is being put together. In the meantime..........Hubby and I found this cast iron sink over 5 yrs ago at a place called Kellys Island in northern Oh. It was the islands treasure day. A $3.00 bargain.
Since I've had it, Ken built this simple base for it. As you can see after 5 years in the weather, it needs some new paint and cleaning up. I had an old faucet but sold it???! Ugh, why did i do that? So I am in the hunt for another one!
I purchased this vintage bark cloth a few weeks back. It is actually a valance. It replaces the other valance skirt that was on the potting sink. I think the fabric is adorable.
This area you are seeing is at the cottage. It is under the deck. This is a walk-out area with old stone walls.....perfect for my "Potting nook area". I planted a few flowers and hung some hanging baskets. I have huge plans for this quaint little area!
The SWEET vintage green watering can was found on the property back in the woods. Hubby found it....He knows what I like!
My plan on the next posting is to show you how the tiny kitchen is coming along. We are in a time crunch because we plan on moving in (whatever the situation is) last of August. Whoo-Hoo! But of course, the work will continue~~~Blessings~~~Roxie

Although, the cottage will be very neutral, I am in love with this print..... And I also give myself permission to change my mind, if I choose!
As my Grandmother use to say........Birds of a feather, flock together! In this case, it's for decorating!
