I would really like to thank those of you who wrote such kind
comments about our little cottage.
I'm glad you thought it looked cozy...it seems a cozy home to us.
A few of you mentioned wanting to see a little more of the place but
since it's such a dark dull day today I'll show you a few photo's that I already had.
The first sunny day we have I will take photo's of area's you've never seen.
Please don't expect much...I haven't hung all my pictures and would like to get
other ones eventually to hang so the walls are a little bare.
Anyway...without further ado...
This cabinet above I found on Craigslist for $100
It's approx 7 feet tall.
I thought about putting skirt under it...I'm still thinking about it.
I've been collecting Blue Willow and blue and white
dishes for years. I made the mistake of selling some when we were
moving here to the farm from the huge old Victorian.
The large platter is one that I kept from my store.
Yes I used to own a sweet little gift shop in a ski
village in the mountains of Canada!
It was called Tradewinds And Treasures.
This is one of my favorite cupboards!
This is a corner of the kitchen.
I have a whole set of those embroidered
tea towels...one for each day of the week that was given
to me from our elderly neighbor when we lived in the city.
Looking from the kitchen into the dining room.
That wallpaper is OLD.
One day we will get around to renovating the kitchen but I don't want much changed.
This is the secretary you see from the kitchen.
It's a beauty. The center part of the glass doors is bowed.
It is flame mahogany I think it's called and has the most
beautiful wood grain. One of the front 'feet' split but I still haven't glued it on!
We found this on Craigslist and drove all the way to a small town near Branson Missouri
to get it. It came from California and was bought at an antique store many years ago.
This is our guest bedroom.
I've never shown pictures of this room as I haven't done anything
with it yet. I still need to put the lace valance up!
Anyway...there you see it in the 'raw'.
The lamp on the dresser to the right belonged to my
Great Grandmother and is an antique Victorian lamp.
One day I'll get a better picture of it
This is my other favorite cabinet.
It's in our craft/office and holds most of my craft supplies
I won't show you the inside of it though...(blushing)
So there you have it...a little preview of
our little farm cottage.
I promise to take more pictures for you
when the sun comes out.
What are you working on in your 'cottage'?
Have a wonderful day!
