Continuing On, For the Love of Cottage!

~dining room corner cupboard~

This last year was a year of change...

I moved this cupboard from another room
into the dining room, I like it with
my white dishes!

It used to be in the
corner of the living room
holding some of my
Hull vase collection!

We were so lucky to find this
adorable vintage sink to
finish off our
vanity!

~Looove these drapes~

My McGiver bought me these drapes
for Valentines Day last year,
they have TWO matching
twin spreads!!!

I hate to spill the beans about that though,
because the plan

was...

to make a valance for the drapes,
 a slip cover for my grandmothers chair
and some pillows.

SERIOUS
PROCRASTINATION
GOING ON
HERE...

I mean well, but honestly
time just flies by and

NOW...

It's a year later!

This year for sure!


~bedroom makeover~

The gorgeous spread and shams were
found at my fave
thriftstore on
two
different
trips!!!


~This last year I learned how to make roses for my cupcakes~

Honestly, these weren't that hard,
You can make them too!


~I looove these chickens~

I found these at my fave thrift store,
they were multi-colored and
not so pretty...

With some white paint and a
little sanding,
 they're
simply 
Bootiful now!

I hope to make a few more
changes this year as
well!

What a treat it was to view your blog this morning, Debbie! I love everything you've done, ESPECIALLY the vintage sink in your bathroom! I had a darling pink wall-mount sink and had put it in the house we had for 18 years but then I had to sell. I go to the Habitat For Humanity ReStore often in a search to find another one. Yours is absolutely fabulous! Thanks for visiting us at Cottage and Creek and for your encouraging comment.
Best to you,
Lynn
