A visit to Cranberry Cottage
After not being able to go to the cottage in October, it was really wonderful to return there this past weekend. We were not sure how much color we would see. Although many trees are loosing their leaves, the colors are still pretty as you can see from this road which leads us to the dirt road the cottage is on.
Here is our new sign hanging by the front door to our tiny little house. When we bought the house 3 years ago, I thought right away that I wanted to name it Cranberry Cottage. It is painted in a cranberry red which I thought was so adorablem that I wanted to keep it so. We are busy each year working on projects to fix this place up and it has really become our little country retreat. We love being here. The area and people in this region are really wonderful!
We spent the weekend raking leaves. The woods bordering the garden are pretty no matter what time of year.
We planted some more daffodils and crocus in the grass which will greet us with color this coming spring. The rack we have out in the summer needed to be stored for the winter months so I reworked some of the objects I had on the rack into an outdoor vigette on the table.
And then comes time to light the lanterns, candles and fireplace and enjoy an evening meal. Here is a peak into the window.
Don't forget to enlarge the photos so you can see them well.
A note to all ~ Thanks so much for the kind remarks about our bathroom. We are now realizing what an easy makeover it was as we are breaking the old tiles off the half bath walls today and I have a terrible mess to contend with now. It was not so upstairs. The new floor has made all the difference in the room. We thought it was so cold looking before but the new tiles have made the wall tiles come up with a warmer glow.
