Lamps on Hunt Board at My Cottage

I put the tall brass lamps that were in my living room in this nook in my kitchen. You can see one small corner of my farm table and a little of a chair in the lower foreground. The shiny thing to the right is my built-in refrigerator. I'm still working around the cottage and have decided I will never finish. That's the idea, isn't it? If you ever finish, you just have to start all over again so why even try. I'm just going to do a little every day. I polished silver trophies today and the living room mantel looks very nice. Fall is in the air and it feels so good to be outside. xo

I love your house. It seems so, what I think of as, New England. I also like your attitude of continuing to plug along with the organizing/cleaning projects. Good inspiration. Thank you.

Debra Phillips.....Exposed paneling is old wooden floor boards from the attic.

Jeannine -- I have always wanted to live in New England. I hope I continue to inspire myself with my cleaning/organizing and I think it will continue because I am enjoying it.

What a totally charming arrangement. I think I remember when you got the lamps? Weren't they from an auction?

I just moved, so it's been fun rearranging all my treasures in new places. And passing along many to friends ... Lighter is better and I'm working on it every day.

Yes, it's an ongoing delight ... What fun to continue your house and home adventures.

I love the wooden wall panels, it really adds to the coziness and gives it a cabin feel. It must feel wonderful to be in your home on snowy nights.

Lana....
My cottage is cozy in all seasons. I'm not ready to say goodbye to summer quite yet, are you? The thought of snow doesn't thrill me but I'll embrace it when it comes.
