I have mentioned in not much detail about getting a cottage and getting out of my loft. Well, here is a bit more detail. I purchased a loft over a year ago, it's supposed to be done this December and as you know the economy hasn't been all that great and the developer is going extremely slow. They say next July. Well, since I over see construction and develop schedules all day..... I say next December. I don't want to wait another year.
Anyway, back to my cottage dream!
I found this fabulous cottage with a nice back yard for my dog.
I started thinking if I were living there this Christmas how would I decorate my home. Well, I found these images on Martha Stewart. I really like these 2 front doors wreath ideas. Which do you prefer? I can't decide. I would love to put garland and white lights on the railings.
This cranberry wreath in front of the mirror is just gorgeous! I have a mirror with a dark stain almost exactly like this one.... I think I may have to age the frame like this one. Loving the red with it!
These I will have to make for the door knobs through out the cottage. I just love the idea of hearing the little bells and the big silver ribbons are just perfect!
This gumdrop wreath is so sweet! I need to make one of these. It will smell spicy and bring memories of my childhood Christmas. My dad and I were the only ones who would eat the gumdrops! No one else likes them in my family, they are yummy and I can just see this simple wreath hanging on my bedroom doors. (of my new cottage of course)
Keep your fingers crossed and BIG positive thoughts my way that I can get this adorable little cottage! I will be writing my letter to Santa tonight, I have been a very good girl this year!
