~~Happy Spring & Home Sweet Cottage!~~


I'm SO happy SPRING is here! Four years ago on the first day of spring we moved into our little cozy cottage in the country! HOME SWEET HOME!

Our country kitchen is a very vintage-colorful-eclectic-cottage-combination of things I love ~ vintage 30's & 40's Universal water pitchers, fiesta, cottage china, & sentimental heirloom treasures. Lots of Red! ~

Looking at these pictures though makes me want to minimize! Hard to do when I'm adding new garage sale finds like the fruit bowl, red lid, & little teapot up there! I'll have to work on it ~~ Our sunny cottage kitchen makes me happy!

We have warm sunshine & 70's here in Texas today!

Hope you all have a LOVELY first day of SPRING!

Don't you love looking at all your finds? I do the same thing when I take a picture but living with my "things" makes me happy. My house will never make the magazines but it's "Home Sweet Home" to me. :-)

Your home is absolutely charming!! I recently took some pictures of the living room, and thought "I must declutter" when I saw them -- but I doubt I really will. I love all my pretties too.
Thanks for sharing; I enjoyed the lovely photos! :)

Kathy your house is amazing! I have lived in this house 5 years and it still looks like I just moved it, nothing on the walls but clutter EVERYWHERE else! You look so pretty sitting out on your porch! Happy Easter!
