Show your Cottage


Today it is Show your Cottage Monday at the lovely House in the Roses. I decided to join in but I am showing my good friend Heather's lovely new home.

I love her guest room. Heather painted and distressed the wooden headboard.


Can you see the pretty dishes in her cupboards?


Like me ,Heather loves toile.


This was an old window Heather bought at a yardsale. I like how they used it inside between the kitchen and entry. I think it adds charm.


Can you see why Heather and I are friends-we love all the same things!




I love how Heather displays her china in nooks and crannies all over her home.







.Thank you Heather for these lovely photos and thank you also to Cielo at the House in the Roses for hosting this fun event. I hope you will enjoy the other partipants cottages as well.

Thank you for visiting,

Carolyn

Heather's cottage is beautiful and charming :-) I love the old window between the kitchen and the entry. It looks like it was made for that spot :-)

Hi Carolyn,

I do indeed understand why you and Heather are friends. The pictures could easily have been taken in your house! It must be nice to share the same passion with your friend and always have something to talk about or undertake together. I had such a friend as well, but she died of cancer four year ago when she was only 44 years old. I still miss her a lot, but I have got a lot of good memories :)! Take care,

Have a lovely day!

Lieve groet, Madelief

Very serene!

Islandsparrow said...

A lovely place - I especially like the way she uses her vases and jugs all around the house - mine stay in the china cabinet or cupboard too much. I'll be thinking of ways to display them here.
