Cottage Guest Room



Hello Friends!
We had some very special guests come to stay at our house a few weeks ago.
Our sweet little 3 month old granddaughter came for a visit (with her parents) and helped me celebrate my birthday. It was so nice to have a full house. 
  
Our Cottage Guest Room used to be our youngest daughter's bedroom and was the first room painted in our house.  Actually, it was painted the very day we closed on the house and before our furniture arrived. 
The bedroom has evolved over the last year or so, adding curtains, a headboard, new bedding and a few accessories, some new and some pulled from other rooms in the house.

I found this scripture sign at Hobby Lobby.com .
The sign brings back sweet memories of when our girls were little and we would sing Galations 22-23 on our walks to the park a few blocks away.

The blush comforter is so cozy and cuddly, without being too heavy and warm.

Last year, Mr. DIY built this Queen size, Curvy Plank Headboard. It was one of the easiest and most inexpensive building project we've ever done! You can find it HERE if you'd like to see how it was built and how little it cost!

The twig wreath was a craft project from our last house. We had a birch tree in our front yard that would drop lots of thin branches after we had a really breezy day. One day, as I was collecting them, I had the idea to make something with them. You can see that post HERE

The Cottage Guest Room is a little larger than our other guest bedroom, which I've had plans to make into a room for when our grandkid(s) sleep over.

It's only been 2 1/2 weeks since our guests left and we're ready to have them back and stay in the Cottage Guest Room

Thanks for stopping by!

Mountain Cottage Kitchen

Hello Friends! It's been awhile!

Our daughter, fiance and their baby flew out for a visit to help me celebrate my birthday a couple weeks ago. We spent time with our precious granddaughter and oh, is she growing fast and doing new things every day. 
Our youngest stayed over and it was nice having a full house for a change.


So much fun!

This past weekend, Mr. DIY and I (and our cat Buddy) drove up to our mountain cottage. 
Mr. DIY has been going up on many weekends to work on the downstairs  bathroom temporary reno.
I hadn’t been up to the cottage since October, so I was glad to get up there and organize a few things and put up some accessories that have been waiting for me.

I really love how our little cottage kitchen turned out and how all the different elements have come together: 
white cabinets, butcher block countertops, subway tile, open shelves, custom wood range hood, banquette, farmhouse accessories…and hopefully someday – a custom wood table and some french bistro chairs.

After I removed a thick layer of dust on the floor and some furniture, I put up my lovely metal lemons sign from Shady Oaks Farm, and set out the white tea kettle I received for Christmas. 
I think it looks perfect.

I looked for months for the perfect something to fit in the space between the range hood and stove. I finally bought a metal tray and after I received it I found the metal lemons sign. I loved it so much I had to order another one because I wanted one for the home we live in. 

Maybe someday we’ll install a backsplash at our house – if I ever decide on tile – it’s complicated because I really don’t like the granite the previous owners chose.
First world problems, I know.

I just love the open shelves Mr. DIY built and installed. 
He’s going to build some for the bathroom.

Our cozy little mountain house kitchen makes me feel happy, especially with Spring so close and the flowering trees starting to bloom outside the kitchen windows.

Are you looking forward to Spring as much as I am? 

I hope those of you experiencing a VERY cold weather are hanging in there!
