Friday Pretties: Cottage Makeover





Hallo weekend, here we come!


This cottage looks like a perfect hideaway after a busy week - a place to slow down and let your hair down, to breathe deeply, sleep in and enjoy the simple pleasures of fresh air, good food, picking flowers, maybe working in the garden or being creative. Don't you just love that turquoise wooden wall with white stencil leaves pattern in the bedroom? And the yellow-green with white and a touch of pink in the living room? Maybe, you can hear the sound of the ocean in the distance, and smell freshly baked scones - Mrs. Moussie is coming over for tea!

Have a fabulous weekend dear friends. Do take time to spoil yourselfs a little - no pudding, no fun!

    Have a sweet evening, sweet friend. Weekend is around the corner (again). Where did the week go? Today was a true Spring day, much much sun and warm temperature, 19 C.

  21. Good morning precious friend! IT IS ALWAYS SO GOOD to see your beautiful face pop up in my comments section! I MADE IT, Martina! I MADE IT THROUGH THE LAST WEEK of school and now, it feels so FREE to know that a whole week of relaxation and fun is ahead. And for me, relaxation and fun is staying home to write,draw, play in my house and just sleep!!!! I hope I can accomplish these things! I also just want to enjoy the sun streaming into my new room, but I hope we have sunshine! I think it is in the forecast! How are you spending your weekend dearest? With trees in bloom now, you MUST be taking many walks! ENJOY IT ALL MY DEAR FRIEND! Anita
