Touches of Christmas



                                                                            Hello everyone,

                                                         Last week I took advantage of some down
                                                         time and relaxed at the cottage pulling out
                                                        some of my favorite Christmas magazines.
  The sun was shining in warming
the cottage.

I added a few touches of Christmas
to put me in the mood.

Some cozy slippers and a cup
of tea added to the enjoyment.




We just got our new
hardwood click floor
laid a few weeks ago
and it made a big improvement.

This window from the restore
also made a big difference in
the cottage giving lots more
light and extending the view.
Recently, I added the old
window frame with the blue
and white plates to add interest
to the wall above the window.
You know how I love my dishes!

I saved a seat for you~grab a cup of tea!





                                                     I couldn't resist adding some touches of
                                                                Christmas to our little seaside cottage.

                                                                Meanwhile back at home I am adding
                                                                Christmas/winter touches to the outdoors
                                                                before moving indoors.

                                                                              Thank you for visiting!

Touches of Blue & White




         Hello everyone,

I hope your week is going well. We are just
finishing up our outdoor chores here this week.
Our temperatures have cooled and we know winter
will soon be on it's way.

We drained the pipes at our Ocean Song Cottage
last week so from now until spring it will be
shorter visits with the woodstove going
and a thermos of tea to enjoy in my
coastal enamalware mugs!



                                                                I am enjoying adding little
                                                                touches of blue and white.



                                                        I was happy to find these handmade
                                                        cross stitch lighthouse pictures at the
                                                        thrift store recently for the cottage.
                                                                 Recently,I enjoyed a humble lunch
                                                                 at the cottage with friends on a
                                                                 beautiful sunny fall day.



                                               Well, my focus is changing here now as
                                                          our home is on a Christmas House Tour
                                                          on December 9th so it will be full steam
                                                          ahead with decorating for Christmas!
                                                            I will share more info on the tour as soon
                                                          as I get more. It is a fundraiser for a
                                                          good cause and there will be other homes
                                                          on the tour as well. I love Christmas house
                                                          tours don't you?

                                                                   Thank you for stopping by!
