Cottage Style Linky Party #26

Personal touches.

When I think of cottage style 

I think of personal touches.

Personal touches like collections.

I have had this collection of tomato ware for years.

It sits in the wavy glass front cabinet in my kitchen.

I love how cheerful it looks through the wavy glass!

And there's colorful Pyrex below...love it!

I love this old built in cabinet and its wavy glass.

It was the #1 thing that sold me on this cottage.

Here's a few gratuitous photos of my kitschy 50's tomato collection...

Pantry Pride tea set.

Bloody Mary's anyone?

Juice set for 6.

Do you have any collections that brighten your day?

Welcome to 

Cottage Style Linky Party #26!

I just love all the winter cottage style from last weeks party!

I just love Deb's philosophy about winter decorating!

Check out her blog Vintage on a Dime to see more of her winter decorations!

I just love Robins rustic farmhouse centerpiece! So simple, yet so elegant!

Check out her blog Happy at Home for her 2012 favorite posts!

These adorable stools are giving me an idea with my boring old black stool...hmmm...

Stop by Jamie's blog Better with Age to see the stool transformation 

and stick around for some of her other fabulous projects!

  1. Hi Debi,
    Happy New Year! Great features; love the white rocking horse. Your tomato ware is really cute. Thanks for hosting.


  2. Hello Debi!
    Being a lover of RED...I am smitten with your darling tomatoes...The tea pot, glasses and pitcher are a delight! Your cupboards are so cottagey and a perfect place for your Pyrex to hang out.
    I'm so glad you shared, my friend.
    I have so many collections. This week on my post I chose to feature several of my miniature quilts. I love making them and adding them to my seasonal collections. They're so much fun to bring out year round.
    Thanks for sharing your cheery post.
