Hubby and I spent the week-end away. And while shopping at Home Goods I came upon this adorable teapot lamp! It called my name and low and behold it hopped right into my cart. Funny how those things happen. Well I love blue and white! I love teapots and we needed a new little lamp for this table.
But wait there was more! I found the pretty blue and white vase at TJ Maxx, and it was only $5!
The cute lamb came from the dollar tree and the blue and white egg was a GW find.
Over here I have added the pretty little white pitcher that I won as part of a give-away and the candle stick had been brass and I spray painted it cottage white.
Behind my birdie nest, which I've had forever is a little watercolor painting that I found at a garage sale last summer for a mere $2.
A view with the drapes. The sun is just starting to rise.
Hubby made this table for me many years ago. The top is cherry and the rest is made out of pine.
I love these pieces with my drapes. They are pretty much a perfect fit!
The picture above is of a cotswold cottage that we framed several years ago.
It's a beautiful morning. The sun has come out, things are just starting to bud around here.
And my Mom says she has some tulips and daffodils starting to poke through the ground. And I have my new teapot lamp!
Welcome to Applestone Cottage. My husband Dan and I bought this cottage in the hills of Western Wisconsin 2 years ago. My husband Dan is a building construction and woodworking teacher at our local high school. He loves to build and I love to decorate on a shoe-string budget. With an empty nest looming, we wanted to take our life in a new direction. We found our little stone cottage on 2 acres surrounded by apple trees. Hence, Applestone Cottage began. Please join us as we turn on little cottage in the country into an inviting little home. Cindy
