Living a simple life in a cottage by the sea.

A Vintage Life

We just returned from a trip up north to visit family.  My husband opted not to go, because he didn't think he could handle the trip. He will be returning to work on Monday after nearly seven weeks recuperating from knee surgery.
The kids and I ( plus my grandson) made the 1,130 mile trip ourselves.  We had a great time, but I have to admit I get very worn out after these long car rides.

Life here at Rose Cottage is returning to normal.  It has been a rather hectic summer.  Is anyone else ready for Autumn?

I am already looking forward to making hot soups, slipping on sweaters (over a lacy top of course!), and evenings lit by candle light.  Which reminds me, I need to head over to our local Hallmark store and check out the Fall scents from Yankee Candle.

I've been admiring some of the pretty outfits from one of my favorite clothing lines April Cornell.  She carries some lovely items, and I usually find myself drooling over the blouses.

I hope you are all enjoying the last days of Summer.  I know Autumn doesn't officially arrive until late September, but I like to think Fall is nearly here.
