Living a simple life in a cottage by the sea.

Romantic Farmgirl



Farmgirl Romance on Mary Jane's Raising Jane Journal


I don't think I'll ever live on a farm (although the husband and I joke about it) ~ but I still enjoy the idea of living a country life on our little Rose Cottage Farmette.

I used to love a super frilly~dilly lacey~do style. The frillier the better. Very Victorian/Shabby Chic.   Now I'm enjoying a more laid back style with less fou~fou ~ more of a country cottage feel. I don't do the whole white look that I enjoy seeing on other blogs, but I do enjoy more of a farmhouse feel that is so "in" right now. My husband being the country boy loves this style. I love mixing a bit of lace alongside old mason jars, vintage egg baskets and old quilts. This is a style that makes my heart sing.


I think my clothing reflects the style in which we live.  Skirts, petticoats, a bit of lace, but still not too fussy.  I still need to get chores done, garden and clean the chicken coop.


 
 Speaking of which...


Time to go give the "girls" a treat in their little pink chicken coop!
We painted it the same color as our cottage ~

Wouldn't it be Lovely?


Magnolia Pearl Ranch and GIVEAWAY...


The home is up for sale and is truly beautiful. I would love to wander through the garden, but since I'm content where I am, I'll dream of winning a chance at the clothing!!

I'm entering a giveaway at Fiona and Twig. Wishes sometimes come true!



Have a beautiful day!

A Simple Weekend



"If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant."
~ Anne Bradstreet


Oh dear, it is supposed to get quite cold here this weekend. I guess I'll just snuggle down make a big pot of soup and save gardening chores for another day.

Actually I have a few indoor projects planned to keep me busy. I'm making another batch of lavender~rose geranium soap as well as trying my hand at liquid soap. I would like to spend some time rearranging some china in the dining room hutch and work a little on the afghan I'm attempting to crochet.

Of course there is always time to spend with our grandbaby, I can't believe he's 9 months old already!


Our beautiful daughter and grandbaby

 
Have a great weekend!
