Our Cottage

So this is our cottage, the place we are currently hanging our hats.

Isn't it sweet?

We think so.  

We have had a few challenges with the cottage but everything appears to be coming together. They still have not found the time to come fetch the lock box yet and I actually think they may have forgotten about it all together. Anyway, the house was built in 1911 and is just as cute as can be.  Here is a picture of the front of the house. Not too much sidewalk (easier to shovel in the winter) and the front door opens to a little sun porch. 

We have all been working on little projects around here this weekend. I painted the frames on the pictures I had painted so they would be fairly uniform.
After ...

Daughter and Little Companion like the look, kind of white distressed, and it goes with the feel of the cottage.

 A very happy Labor Day to you! 

Hope you are able to have a little fun and sun as we head into September!

Hi Valerie! Your cottage is precious! I'm so glad you've shown it. Your frames look so nice and I see a really pretty tea set on that cart! Would love to see more of your little cottage! OH, yes I forgot - the projects were just at the first! :)
Thanks for popping in to see my kitchen.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

What an adorable little cottage Valerie. It looks so charming and I just love the color of it. So shabby chic. I could easily see myself living in a cute little house like that. It's way cuter than my bland and boring on the outside quad home/townhouse. Mine just looks like an ugly old box with windows. I hope you'll be sharing more pictures of the inside as you complete all your little decorating projects. I'd love to see more.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
