It was time....

Making changes around the blue cottage... 

I had the same living room furniture for 6 years... I was over it.. I wanted to take it up a notch and the love of my life loves the Pottery Barn/Restoration Hardware look... 

SO here is what I had before.... 

And here is the after ... It is a work in progress!  We just had furniture delivered so be kind I realize I have alot of fluff to do... 

On the hunt for colorful pillows, maybe burlap pillows or feedsack linen pillows, new lamps, floor lamp and a perfect rug to soften it up a bit. Black leather is hard to decorate around.. Love the smell of leather.. Smells heavenly in living area!! Comments & suggestions welcome... 

My camera is out so the new pictures of living taken with iphone aren't the best.. 

More to come.... See ya soon!

Crazy Times... A good crazy!!

Hey friends!  

Thank your for the e-mail and text. I am fine, my family is fine. The year started off with a bang and days just got away from me and this blog that I love. I wanted to let you know you can always find me here and here...  If you ever need me! 

Life at the Blue Cottage is undergoing some changes the last few months. 

We started off with a new roof.... 

We started the paint job the first weekend in December.... What were we thinking??

As you can see here we ripped out all the landscaping.... So looking forward to SPRING!! 
Replaced all rotten boards and painted the garage and the office to Outback Therapy this past weekend! This paint job has been a major undertaking.. at times i wish I had a brick home!

AND .. in the midst of all the holidays, the work we are having done at the Blue Cottage... Grandson is undergoing some tests @Childrens Hospital... Keep us in your prayers... 
Thank you for stopping by! I adore you all..

Happy New Year!!

2012 was a fabulous year!! We had bends in the road but overall we are all healthy and happy!

The love of my life and I are working on our bucket list of items and hope to mark off more of those this year... What do you want to do this year? Lose 20 pounds or kayak down the Oregon river, snow shoe in Washington state? More glamping trips with the girls? 

As far as a career goal - I am working on growing my real estate business & will be starting my 3rd year in just a few days. 2012 was a blessing, I sold over 22 homes. I am in the building stages of my client referral data base.  I am so grateful to serve in my community!  If you would like to follow - find me on facebook - Valarie Kerby- Not your Ordinary Real Estate Agent.
