Trust in the LORD with all your HEART. Lean not unto your own understanding, but acknowledge him in all thy ways and he will direct your path.

                                                     Belle of the Barn

Having a little fun this year with Belle!

                                I love this Antique Brooch on Belles hat!  I purchased the brooch 2 years ago from the Antique Mall.  I also love wearing it on my denim jackets....

I'm still "tweeking" her........maybe add a little silver to her dress!  I've been trying out different cowboy boots too!   Enjoy your Holidays~~~Merry Christmas!
Prayers and Blessings~~~Roxie

I am!!  The smell of fresh, crisp air......pumpkins and pick-ups.  Lots of apples and apple cider with sunflowers smiling upwards to the sun.
Flowering kale, cabbage and mums all around our porches.....tractors, hay and corn shocks adorning the countryside.......yep, it's my favorite time of year!  Life is Good~~~Blessings~~~Roxie

Just a quick post to show an update on the outside..........

                              We put some very simple landscaping in this Spring.....

            the oil/stain is ALMOST finished!  (we have the "yellow" part to finish too)
Then......some "light" landscaping in the Fall on the side of the cottage and in the front of the side deck.  Plus, if time allows, there will be a Pergola going over the side deck you see in this picture.....can't wait!
This deck comes off the family room that was added years ago.

          The moral of the story~~~"A mans work is never done"!   LOVE my Ken~~~

You can't build Rome in a this case, a Cottage!   Blessings~~~Roxie

                         Yep, It's been a while............
 If you are wondering......I have been keeping myself pretty busy these last few months.  Things I LOVE to do.......and things I don't care to do.

One of those "things" I love is visiting the Farmers Markets in our area......
Isn't this just the SWEETEST thing selling flowers off this pick-up bed turned FLOWER STAND?

As I stated earlier in the year...I won't be blogging as much as I use to. BUT, I still enjoy visiting your blogs, seeing all the creativity one shares or just a GOOD, ENCOURAGING post that makes one smile!

You of the "things" I don't care to do is seeing a "C" Doctor.....but it is necessary.  Even though everything is going GREAT,  I have been back on treatment since March....yuk.
The Doc wants to try to shrink that ugly tumor a little more.............Hey, it's been almost 6 yrs!  Isn't GOD good!
                  In the will find me visiting Farmers Markets, Flea Markets and some Junking.  And of course, thanking the Lord for everything he has done for me in my life!
                     Please keep me in your prayers~~~~Love you all!

                            A perfect, quiet spot in the garden to relax and read the Word~~~

                            Hello blogland friends!  Hope everyone is doing well~~~

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!

                                              LOVE the Tulips~~~

The Antique frame has a touch of old pink paint on it.  I thought this would be sweet for a Valentines decor~

Stay Warm~~~Blessings~~~Roxie

                                       Hi friends!  Is everyone staying warm?
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 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, way!   This shelving and brackets cost around $200 (tax included)
I really like the vintage/retro style GE stove and the fridge fit perfect.

I am using a vintage lace tablecloth for the skirt sink but I will be looking for something else soon...
The lavender in the pitcher is from my garden at the still smells wonderful~~~

                                I love my sweet antique toaster light~~~

I do have a blank wall on this side next to the fridge.........I'm looking for that "something special" to go there

                                   Have a wonderful and Blessed weekend~~~Roxie
