Cottage Style Party #40

So I'm driving down the road on my way to work.

It's trash day, so my eyes are darting back and forth from curb to road to curb and back.

Then I spot this on the side of the road.

Only it had stuff piled on top of it but I could see just enough

to make me slam on my brakes and pull over.

In my head I am picturing doing this with the fence:

So I throw it in the back of my truck and continue on my way to work.

I'm thinking it will look great weaving its way through my flowers and 

distracting my eye from my neighbors ugly chain link fence.

It's already working and my flowers are just starting to fill in!

Oh, and I also found this chippy painted chair:

Just needs a cushion and some fresh paint!

I did pay for the picnic hamper at a flea market.

Shhh...it wasn't much...

What kinds of bargains have you found on the curb?

That is, if you are a curb jockey...ha!

Welcome to this weeks 

Cottage Style Party!

Spring is back on track here in at the cottage!

It looks like spring is making an appearance at your cottage also!

Finally, huh?

First let me say, can you believe those shingles on this cottage?


Kathy always has something cute going on over at her blog

A Delightsome Life and this porch is no exception!

Bop on over to see more details of her welcoming porch!

This guest room is so cozy and warm looking!

I could easily spend the night here..hint, hint...ha!

Stop over to Christine's blog,  Christine's Home and Travel Adventures, to see

 more of her lovely guest room (in Florida, where I will be staying next winter!)

and closeups of that amazing French spread!

I am loving this beach cottage decor!

Shells, starfish, candles, driftwood...I am ready for summer!

  1. Great finds. Love the fence and I have a chair just like that only it's a rocker. We aren't allowed to put things like that out with our garbage. Just what fits in the cans. Everything else we take to thrift stores or the dump. Boy, would I ever be out hunting on garbage day if we did. Thanks for hosting.

  2. "Curb jockey"! LOVE that, Deb! lol! Much more chic than "dumpster diva". lolol! And what person in their right mind would throw out such a charming fence AND chair??? Those are both great finds!!! :)

  10. Hi, I just discovered your blog through Trans. Thurs. over at Shabby Creek Cottage and love it! I am joining your party for the first time. It is so fun to find a blog about cottage style living. You hit the jackpot with your sweet treasures. Love the chair and the fence is just what you needed to trump the ugly chain link. Following! Blessings, Wanda

  11. Thanks for share this post I also share with you something hope you like my post. Before committing to a trade exhibition or any event in fact, have you ever asked the question ‘Why are we doing this?’ It’s essential to understand why you’re attending any event as your objectives will guide you on how best to maximise resources. Are you exhibiting to promote, network, increase leads, build relationships, educate, sell, celebrate, etc.? ’We always attend this show’ isn’t a good enough reason! Tell the staff the reason why your company is exhibiting too and make sure they’re geared up to help your organisation achieve its aims. Thanks
