Saturday Afternoon at The Cottage

Beautiful blue skies, white fluffy clouds, and a light sweater were par for the course today.

Some of the trees are completely bare, some are turning, and others have leaves that are hanging on tight and are bright green. Webster and I enjoyed our 5:00 stroll. He starts hanging around his food dish around 4:00.

Overnight Visitor - Puppy Sleepover

With almost no advance notice look who came to visit last night. He is being picked up soon by another lady who can't wait to get her hands on him. Webster was so good with this youngster and they played and walked together perfectly. I took this iPhone photo after breakfast this morning just before his nap. We get the cutest canine visitors here at the cottage, don't we? This one also likes the tiger stuffed toy usually reserved for Piggy.

Make a New Friend This Weekend

I absolutely adore peeking into the lives of animals when they don't know anyone is looking. via

Have you had a first frost yet?

We have lots of colorful leaves but no frost yet.

iPhone Photos -- First Day

Nothing to brag about...just playing around w/ the awesome camera on my new toy, the iPhone 4S.

Shout It From The Rooftops

I got my first iPhone today -- The iPhone 4S

I took this picture with it from my attic studio through the window and screen just before the rain.

Who Got In The Garbage?


Three dogs home alone. Can you guess which one is the guilty culprit after you meet them one by one?

Clever Bathroom Storage

I love this idea and have no idea why I never thought about doing recessed shelves behind the WC in any of my past construction projects. via

Interesting Table Setting

I like these runners so much better than placemats or a tablecloth. The table protection is much better and the beauty of the wood still shows. Nice.

Two Cats in Edinburgh

You have to look closely to convince yourself this is not the same cat in two different locations. I guess they can go outside at will through the broken window pane. Nice.

An Early Snowfall

I remember a snowfall like this here at the cottage several years ago. The fall cleanup went out the window that year. via

High Noon in The Woods

Wouldn't you love to be walking on this woodland path at high noon? via

Sunrise on the Farm Gate

Good Morning Sunshine
How very beautiful. Those of you who know me through this blog know how much I love sun rays in a photo. via

Extraordinary Children's Room

This room by Kristen Panitch Interiors is absolutely perfect for two lucky children to share and still be able to maintain their individual spaces for privacy. Agreed?

An Amazing Kitchen

I absolutely adore this kitchen with no overhead cabinets and painted cabinet doors in an otherwise white kitchen. The oriental rug really is a nice touch too on the ebony stained floors. Just beautiful! via
