Cottage Style Party & What I'm Pinning Now

I've been pinning up a storm lately!

I'm feeling open to suggestions.

The season changed, the weather is warmer and I'm looking for inspiration for projects I can do, or eat, or places to go, someday.

I'm always looking for cottage ideas!

Right now I am loving clean white kitchens with rustic and bling touches!

I love the crisp white wall cabinets with the rustic island, white subway tile, crystal chandelier and warm wood floors.

And then I saw this green kitchen!

I love the soft green beadboard drawers, the white open shelving above, the window seat (so perfect to sit while perusing a cookbook!) and the hint of harlequin floors!

And then I see this farm sink and all I can think of is 'how can I live without you?'

I love those curly brackets instead of curtains and the falling stars…so cute!

All that kitchen inspirations makes me think I could tackle this:

Maybe, some day, when the stars aline and I find all those wonderful components I'll know just what to do with them!

This is probably more my speed...

A bird cage with a plant tucked inside. 
Flea market season is here, it could happen!

I drooled over these peony tulips!

They are on my list for fall planting.

I wish this was my front gate, covered in roses!

Maybe some day…

With a front yard covered in flowers, no grass.

I bet these people feel so good when they come home to this!

Then I look for easy summer dishes to use the bounty 
(fingers crossed!) from my garden.

Like this delish Cucumber Tomato and Avocado Salad.

Or this bruschetta.

So easy and yummy!

While I love this Lemon-Ricotta Cheesecake...

I will never make it. 
But it sure looks good!

I love all these Some-ecards on Pinterest and couldn't resist pinning some.

Like this one…


If you hate spiders as much as I do...

Been there, done that, still find humor in it!

This is how I start everyday at work...


What have you been pinning lately?

Hello Friends!

Welcome to this weeks

Cottage Style Party!


The boxes of yard sale stuff are piling up and I can't wait until it is over! It is consuming my life and I'm can't wait for this weekend.

The left-overs go to the Goodwill at noon on Saturday.
I'm an early yard sale seller and just don't have the patience to sit around all day for no sales.
My rule of thumb is most sales happen before noon, then haul it to the Goodwill so they can make some cash on the rest.

Anyone else planning a yard sale this spring?

Or been to a yard sale?

Let's see what you've been up to…

Looks like Donna found some rusted roofing tiles and made some birdhouses with them!

I love how charming and rustic these are! Stop by Donna's blog Distressed Donna Down Home to see more of her rusted tile collection…so fab!

I just love this whimsical woodland table inspired by Beatrice Potter! How cute is that birds nest and those moss balls?

Hop on over to Kathy's blog A Delightsome Life to see all the details of this table setting!

I love this spring inspired Easter mantle!
The best part is this is not a mantle and its not even spring in Australia!
Gotta love Pernilla's sense of humor!

I love her collection of brass candleholders from her native Sweden and those rustic pinecones tucked in amongst the spring colors! Drop by Pernilla's blog Swedish Corner-Down Under to see more of her "spring mantle"!
Love it girl!

  2. I like that Green kitchen too! Nice features and some yummy too, lol!

  3. Good evening, Deb. I've been pinning a lot of recipes lately and some decorating ideas - especially for kitchens. Getting ready to build our new home and I want my kitchen (probably my last) to have everything I want and nothing I don't need! Does that make sense? Hahaha Thanks for hosting the party!

  4. Love your pins and your features. The green kitchen is wonderful but I want to make that blue cabinet.
    Thanks for hosting such a fun party that draws a lot of talented people.
