We had started a project in the Master & Master bath... It was painting trim work and caulking crown, changing trim color etc...
|I love this picture postcard - of course I never tire of chandeliers!|
|Freshly painted trim, new monogrammed pillow shams, put on the Rachel Ashwell shabby chic duvet|
|Polka dots + monograms = blue cottage happiness!|
|Vintage white pillowcases - bought at a auction|
|Burlap lamp shades mixed in with all the black white -|
|Painted the back of entertainment center wall black - made such a difference.|
|See the before here -- The beadboard was black, after 5 years of it - I was ready for a change - Painted Extra white by Sherwin Williams - Hung my bread baskets with white linens|
|To give the bath a contrast - painted the built in cabinet black. The vintage crystal handles really pop now!|
|Simple.. clean... a few bare walls but enjoying the simplicity!|

My favorite time of the year...
|With the spring temps, I planted a few wire baskets for my porch yesterday... Most of these plants will drape over the baskets when they start blooming..|
|First rose bud bloom today in my garden|
|Thank you for enjoying Spring at my cottage!|

The GRANDS were out of school this week, so I drove down to East Texas to spend a day with them! Caldwell Zoo & Chuck E Cheese were on the list for a day of fun!
|The map... Jack was in charge of the map ... He kept saying this map was like Dora's!|
|Brotherly Love.. Big buddies!|
|In front of "DORA's Map" according to Jack..|
|The GRANDS favorite part of the zoo-|
|The goats loved him...|
|At this point Jack decided he had a stomach ache and wanted his Mama..|
|Once we got to Chuck E Cheese the stomach ache went away!|
|Big brother being a trooper for his little brother @Chuck E Cheese.|
|My mom come to meet us and watch her GREAT GRANDS play.. think she had a crush on Chuck E Cheese.|
Thanks for stopping by...
Happy St Patrick's Day!
