A life recorded is twice precious - first the experience itself and then the memory of it full and sweet when we read about it later.

Show of your cottage Monday................


Hi.......   welcome to another Show Off Your Cottage Monday" at  Cielo's   lovely home in the roses
I am going to show a few pictures of my little cottage. Please go to the House in the Roses and join in to see many cottage looks   The picture below is of my Mother when she was a young lady, in front of the picture is a small part of her lovely china.

.Above is a picture of old fashioned dresses and a picture of the little girl that may have worn them years ago.

This cake below  sits in my dining room and looks good enough to eat.    The last picture is in my living room and it is pictures of my Mother when she was a baby with my grandparents.
   One of the things about the cottage look is any thing you like can be part of the look.  As you can see I decorate my cottage with old family pictures and any thing that I treasure.   Decorating is about putting together the look you love, and I love the look of  another time.

I love decorating with old vintage style, black and white photos are fabulous! I have a few I made from when my boys where little, just adds warmness! That cake looked great, I grabbed a piece before I left:)

P.S. I know it was not real, that is why I grabbed it, no calories:)

You are so right about cottage decorating. Displaying what you love is the whole idea. The treasured photos fit right in.
