Cottage Style Party & Daffodils…finally!





And then, there were…


DAFFODILS!






After waiting so patiently, ahem, for them, they are finally here!




I just can't get enough if them!





They were almost glowing on a sunny day this past weekend.




So pretty!




My neighbor across the street has another variety that I just couldn't resist.




I love the dainty flowers against the rugged stone wall.




Yes, those are hens and chicks tucked in-between the stones of the wall.




L-O-V-E




Despite the predictions for snow (again!) this week, in my mind it is spring.


Snow on the shrubs behind the daff's this morning…
the weather just needs to move on!





Anything blooming at your cottage?

I spent my weekend spring cleaning and getting ready for my annual yard sale.
I'll be doing the same thing next weekend.
Yippee…not really...
It is exhausting digging and sorting, moving and cleaning everything!
But sitting in a clean living room afterwards was worth it!
The yard sale is the following weekend, rain or shine, it all has to go somewhere!
Just so long as it is not at my cottage.




Anyone else want to admit to spring cleaning?








It looks like Penny hit some yard sales. I love how she left those thrifty price stickers on her treasures!


Can you believe that forget-me-knot tea set was only $15? Stop by Penny's blog Penny's Vintage Home to see more of her yard sale finds!













Looks like Sherry threw an Easter tea party! How cute are those chick cookies?


The basket of treats and vintage crochet trim napkins are perfect for this tea. Hop on over to Sherry's blog The Charm of Home to see the details of her Easter tea and her yummy chocolate crosses!












Tracie's garden is so colorful and lovely already!
Her garden is full of delightful flowers: camellias, azaleas, hellebores and tulips.


And I really love how the sweet woodruff spills over onto her flagstone path…so pretty! Stop by Tracie's blog Fishtail Cottage to see her lovely garden and don't miss the Coral Bark Maple….whoa!

Cottage Style Party & A Versatile Piece




This is a tale of one well chosen piece with loads of versatility.



I bought this 2 tier stand at a church rummage sale this weekend.


It was filthy with candy bits stuck to it.


So I cleaned it up and the sparkle returned.


I thought it might be versatile and I could use it for many purposes.


I was right!


Here's just a few of the many uses for this 2 tier stand...


With chocolate eggs and bunnies for Easter!



Or Easter grass and Peeps!





Beach cottage style with sea shells!





Woodland cottage style with moss, bird and nest!




Stuffed with plastic pears!



Serving cookies for a tea party!




Holding a jewelry stash!

(someone likes sparkles…)




So many more uses for this stand!


What kind of versatile pieces do you have at your cottage?

How's everyone doing this week?

Is it spring at your home yet?

I think my daffodils might open later this week.
I can't wait!

Anything blooming at your home?




Let's get this party started!








I love this pretty blue French Provincial dresser.
This blue is just so spring-y!



I love the beautiful aged details of the design! 
Drop in to Darrielle's blog D D's Cottage and Design to see how she changed this dresser from plain to fabulous!












I love the use of this Friendly Village teapot as a vase for daffodils!


Bev used her Friendly Village dish ware to set a wonderful Easter table. I love the spring green accents and bunnies! Hop on over to her blog Tablescapes by Bev to see the details!










A change in the weather calls for a change in your cottage too!
This artful cabinet top arrangement is from Autumn's living room refresh.


That hint of teal is from her gorgeous curtains! To see more of Autumn's living room redo, stop by her blog Stay Gold Autumn.
