Please come in and I'll show you around. As you enter my cottage, one of the first things you will notice is my birdhouses. This little birdhouse which sits above the kitchen cabinets was handpainted by an artist friend of mine for my birthday one year. Notice the attention to detail! Curtains in the windows and birdhouses on the shelves; chairs on the front porch. I also love mirrors in my home. I love how they come in all sizes and shapes and how they reflect light.....I love glass knobs........especially on a birdhouse!and little white lights dancing behind a lace curtain........little white lamps which give off a soft glow. Tiny white pumpkins sprinkled with glitter.Dried hydrangeas tucked into every nook and cranny.....even in a vintage teacup adorned with a dried rose from the summer. Some find themselves nestled under glass too!A favourite teapot of mine. Would you care for some tea? I have any number of flavours. ....and some of my favourite dishes. I love how the pinks all go together. The lace runner is from Martha Stewart.The dinner plate and the saucer, both in my Rose Chintz pattern are vintage. I love how the flowers are sprinkled all over the china giving them a soft romantic touch. I never tire of them.Red transferware on a shelf...
My stereo stand below and coffee table were both painted and distressed for a more cottagey look. A homemade lace angel graces the front of this little aqua chest I found at Winners.
The toile bunny sits in his favourite chair. Yes, I know the winged back chair is in pink and I want to find a white slip cover for it, but I'm not having much success. This sweet little birdie soap dish has feet under it. I found it this past summer. This teacup wreath graces the front door. I haven't had the heart to take it down yet.
