Sweet Cottage charm

My dear daughter and I have enjoyed browsing through antique and thrift stores in our area. We have found a few real treasures along the way. My dear daughter has a real eye for decorating so I thought I would give you a little peek at some of her personal decorating tastes.

Cozy chair found on craigslist. Don't you love the antique skis?? You do know we live in Florida, right??

She bought this antique sewing machine when she lived in the windy city. I am not sure if it still works, but it makes a great decoration :-)

My dear sweet husband made these curtain rods for me several years ago. I just love them. We have them in several rooms. It's a super way to elevate your decorating statement.

Very sweet simple pictures are above her headboard.

I love how she has stacked these old suitcases at the foot of her bed. Very lovely linens are stored inside.

And here is a beautiful quilt in the making. Don't you just love the fabrics? It is the same Bunny Hill pattern as my Cottage Quilt. It is going to be a real beauty.
Just wanted to welcome you into our little cottage on this Monday morning. Hope your day is sew delightful!
