It is surely not here today, however, and I find I must take advantage of this quiet inside time to work on art and cottage projects before the garden steals me away!
Here are a few wintry scenes from around the cottage:
|The Front Entry Arbor - covered in Snow and Rose Hips.|
|A little vignette, with birdhouse, our old garage, clematis and the composter! : )|
|Male Cardinal at the feeder.|
Inside there have many changes recently - from little fix-ups to a new temporary art space (on the front porch mind you)!
|My temporary work space on the front porch! I don't know what I'm going to do when it's time to start seeds!|
In other cottage projects, I decided to tackle the back entryway. Perhaps it is the old-fashioned-ness in me, but I do so adore wallpaper! Here is a photograph of how it is looking so far, taken from the mudroom. I ran out of wallpaper and have to order more to finish the opposite wall, and there is still trim work, etc. I ordered this wallpaper from Laura Ashley - I like her designs (and this wallpaper is made in Great Britain). I feel rather pleased, as wallpapering is a rather a stressful task for me (perhaps the cottage ghost was secretly assisting me!)!
I do so wish you all a most Blessed 2017! May you find much pleasure and happiness in all that you do, make, grow, collect, preserve, create and share this year!
