From the Cottage

The sun is shinning, and I am thinking of spring.
I can not wait to get my hands in the dirt
AND
to plan to spend some time in my garden cottage.

Since it is Pink Saturday, I thought I would show you
some pinks in the cottage...so enjoy!

the day bed to catch a quick nap on, covered with
Shabby Chic pink

never enough pink McCoy vases!

Now I really want to go out to the Cottage and play.
It will have to wait or I can turn on the fireplace out there?

Have a great Saturday!
It is a big day in St Louis, huge Mardi Gras parade!

I want to play in the cottage, Ann! The pink against the beadboard is simply perfection! I don't know if I've ever seen pink McCoy before, yours are beautiful. Lucky you to have such a fun "play house"!!

Mardi Gras in St. Louis, huh? I'm from Louisiana and lived for a time in New Orleans -- wild Mardi Gras!

With a daybed looking as tempting as that Kathy I'm afraid I'd be in little rush to get in the garden yet!

I would be able to spend the whole day day dreaming on that pretty PINK day bed Ann.
I adore 1515, you know that.

LOVE those McCoy vases. I saw a blueish-green one today at an antique store and almost bought it... Now I'm kicking myself!

Shirley said...

Oh how pretty the daybed is.. I bet you could curl up there many days to just enjoy peace and quiet!

How do you do it? The garden cottage is so pretty. Mine is home to 10 little hens. They like it. Your's is a lovely little retreat where I imagine you can pour of the seed catalogs and plan the next garden.
