Cozy and quiet! Exactly what I love after a long busy day and after the kids are asleep.

And if these times are not precisely for planning and plotting I decided to nevertheless start fixing the L'Art de Bien Manger workshop dates for 2021, trusting that this culinary adventure will continue no matter what! The new dates are on the website, click on the link in my bio for further information. . . The workshop dates in August, September and October 2020 are maintained and we hope that by then the situation will allow us to see as many of you. Note that I changed the cancellation policy to reflect the situation which means that you will get 100% of the fee refunded if you can't attend due to the Coronavirus and/or according travel restrictions. . . Contact me at [email protected] if you're interested in joining or DM me, I'd be more than happy to hear from you! . .

Do you remember the other day when I showed you the view of the big rhododendron bush outside my kitchen window? Well here it is up close and personal! Isn't it fabulous? . If you had to pick one plant in your garden that was the biggest showstopper, which one would it be? . Several of you asked me more about this gorgeous plant that grows so well in the PNW. . I didn't know this about them until this morning, but due to the potentially toxic nature of the flower, it’s important to avoid displaying them in the kitchen or near food. . Rhododendrons prefer environments where it is neither too hot nor too cold (Zones 5 to 8). . They will grow anywhere from 8-20 feet, and like shade to part sun. Colors include people, red, orange, white, pink and yellow. . . . . #rhododendron #springblooms #springflowers #greenhouses #sunsetmag #countrylivingmag #pnwgardening #rhododendrons #waterview #bhgflowers #gardenview #pnwgarden #cottagegarden #gardenstyle #countrygardens #countrycottagestyle#thehappygardeninglife #cottagesandbungalow #outdoorlighting #bhgbestfrontyard #mycountryhome #gardenstyling #thecottagejournal #greenhouse #countrygardens #gardensofinstagram #greenhousesandgardens

I haven’t posted much of our loft because quite frankly, I am taking forever...... to really finish it. 😄 It is truly my favorite space in the cottage! While the cheery wall color, the massive windows and the 16 ft ceilings make it feel bright and airy, the natural wood throughout the room brings the perfect amount of cozy💛 This week I loaded up the kids and we took a trip to #lowes to pick out light fixtures. I am still hunting for one for over the sink, but I found a couple I liked for the bathroom and stairwell🙌🏼 Fun fact... all but two of our windows here in the cottage were handmade! We received quite a few messages about them during the build and I hope to do a quick video about their construction in my story highlights. Have a great day, friends!☀️

"Mama, I can't walk anymore." Carrying an oversized metal beach chair in flip flops as the summer heat beat down on my little red head was no easy task at five. "But look!" she called over her shoulder. "It's the beach roses!" That meant we were almost there. Soon I could sink my tired toes in the wet sand and draw with found driftwood. I would sit for hours it seemed, crafting little lines that mimicked the prints of the gulls. It was a lovely collaboration. I marveled at their mark making and my primitive handiwork before the tide swept in and washed it all away. - - - - - #rusticfarmhouse #rustic #rusticchic #rusticchippycharm #chippypaint #freshflorals #vintagefarmhouse #coastalfarmhouse #coastalstyle #countryliving #cozyfarmhouse #countryhome #countrycottage #countrycottagestyle #wherewomencreate #coastaldecor #thecottagejournal #vintagebooks #seasideliving #seasonaldecor #slowliving #chippywhite #woodsandwhites #driftwooddecor #creativelifehappylife #beachhousestyle #neutralstyle #cottagefarmhouse #cottagechic

Working on getting these succulents back to being healthy. In the meantime, I love pairing the blue and terra-cotta colors. Do you have luck with succulents?

Today I am thrilled to share Katie Baker from @baker_nest . She is such a talent! Not only does she have a gorgeously styled home she is an artist, author, and presenter. She makes the most beautiful barn quilts! She has DIY kits you can get with the paints, patterns she created, and the wood to create them on. She is presenter and host at the @countrylivingfair. She brings history and nostalgia to her IG squares. Check her out and see more in stories! Now I just need to decide which kit I need for the river cabin! 🎨 #mycountryhome #countrylivingfair #barnquilts #barnquiltlove #coastalliving #nauticaldecor #nauticalstyle #countrylivingmagazine #fleamarketstyle #vintagecoastal #beachhousestyle #thecottagejournal #ahoymatey #notmypic #diyart

Hi guys hope all is well and that you had a great Memorial Day weekend! So excited to share a shop I’ve been swooning over for so long, @the.accidental.farmgirl If you love wreaths and all things farmhouse than you will be obsessing over her creations as much as I am. She makes the most beautiful wreaths that add the perfect pop of green and fresh feels to any space. And I recently snagged this beige dahlia, rose and eucalyptus beauty for our front door and I’m absolutely in love. It adds the perfect pop to this 200 year old beauty!

“Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.” ‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭12:9‬ ... Your ministry is found where you’ve been broken, and your testimony is found where you’ve been put back together! He always uses our pain for good. ... Tonight is the virtual band banquet and tomorrow they graduate... y’all the road is bumpy, winding, smooth, and straight and it takes us all kinds of places. Soon their road will continue on without me right next to them, I’ll be a phone call away instead of down the hall. But they will be taking pieces of my heart with them wherever they go for sure. ... #flags #summerstyle #4thofjuly #bhghome #bhgwintheweekend #bhgflowers #countrylivingmagazine #cottagesandbungalows #farmhouseporch #exteriorstyling #frontporchliving #frontporchdecor #prettyporchesandpatios #mysouthernliving #southernporches #farmhousestyle #farmhouseexterior #lightandbright #iloveallwhiteeverything #summerstyling #frontporchsittin #farmhousedesign #myfarmhousecottagestyle #mycottagefarmhouse #mybhghome #myhousebeautiful #myseasonalfarmhouse #myloganmartin #backyardliving #thecottagejournal

How is it Thursday already!?! Once school is out, doesn’t it seem like the summer flies by?! I feel so behind...I’m still working on planting my flowers...but I did get my window boxes planted if you saw my stories! . I just want to spend my time outdoors and have no motivation for indoor projects! I’m glad I finished up my entryway board and batten while it was cold outside! Also, have I mentioned how much I love my new entryway table!!!!!

Good Morning! 🙋‍♀️ Thanks for hanging in there with me after a much needed little break. I appreciate those of you who were checking up on me.💙 Clouds and rain have blanketed our little cove for almost a week now. We are hoping the sun will come out soon...right Brie? I love catching her on the bench looking out the big window. She ignores the geese but when she sees a blue heron we always know...😊 Even a gloomy day is beautiful!

This is the time of year when mornings (and sometimes entire days) look like this. Ten miles up the road it is probably an equal number of degrees warmer and the sun is likely shining. But the ocean is slow to warm after the winter, keeping us cooler and creating fog as the temperatures rise seasonally. If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I prefer to start my day with sunshine, but, truly, I am grateful for this view in any weather! . . Thanks for playing along with my “what’s changed” game yesterday! I won’t challenge you today. You can see that I also took my paint brush to the inside of the pine corner cabinet. Just a little bit of white paint and the room seems brighter and my treasured collections pop! It is funny how long it can take to see a change that needs to be made in a room. I guess that is why design is a process. Enjoy your day, friends! I will let you know if the fog disappears... 🌫 🌞💙 . . . . . . . . . #foggymorning #thepowerofpaint #breakfasttime #roomwithaview #outmywindow #mybackyard #waterview #waterfrontliving #cornercabinet #coastalcottage #cottagestyle #cottageliving #coastalliving #coastalstyle #summerdecor #blueandwhiteforever #blueandwhitedecor #blueandwhitehome #cottagesandbungalows #thecottagejournal #housebeautiful #mainehomes #mycountryhome #bhghome #newenglandliving #newenglandhome #yankeemagazine

As our long-term rentals come to a close, we realize that we will miss the deeper relationships we’ve had with our extended guests. Some have already booked shorter stays in the near future. It will be great to have them back! . Contact owners for best rates, text or DM. Link in bio. #ExtendedStay #BeWell #sanitized

3 short years ago we were trying to sell the “little house.” That’s what we used to call the 700 square foot one bedroom, one bathroom house Dan was reno-ing when we met. Now we are packing up the house we built together and trying to figure out what comes next. Time flies when you’re busy flipping things.

Hi friends! I’m super excited to share this fun opportunity we are doing here on our property. You have seen me share a few of these spaces in my stories, but I wanted to share one more time. This post may be long but there is a giveaway involved! My husband built me my white pergola for just a fun space for us to hang out and for me to get creative! So many people reached out to see if I was planning on opening this space up for photographers to come out and shoot. It never crossed my mind but I kept thinking about it! You know we have barn sales and our barn is currently full. But, we don’t know when we will have a sale. So I thought how fun would it be to offer our barn for props for shoots! So I’m taking the plunge and I starting booking! Our first session is this weekend! I can’t wait to share (I’ll share what I can). We are located in Brooklyn, mi, and have about 3-4 prop stations set up! Share this post for a chance to win a basket full of some of my currently favorite things! I appreciate this all so so much! . . . . . . #farmhousedesign #joannagaines #brooklynmi #betterhomesandgarden #jacksonmichigan #thecottagejournal #farmhousestyle #neutralhome #modernfarmhouse #farmhouseinspired #mycountryhome #photographersofinstagram #targetstyle #hgtv #southernliving #myhousebeautiful #mybhghome #cottagedecor #vintagedecor #secretgardens

t h o u g h t f u l t h u r s d a y/..... . . 🎵Six Feet Apart...... When the dogwoods start to bloom And the crickets hum their tune That's usually about the time That I feel most alive But the news has all been bad And the whole world seems so sad I ain't had much else going on So I sat down and wrote this song . . I miss my mom, I miss my dad I miss the road, I miss my band Givin' hugs and shakin' hands It's a mystery, I suppose Just how long this thing goes But there'll be crowds and there'll be shows And there will be light after dark Someday when we aren't six feet apart . . First thing that I'm gonna do Is slide on in some corner booth And take the whole damn family out And buy my buddies all a round Pay some extra on the tab Catch a movie, catch a cab Watch a ballgame from the stands Probably over-wash my hands....... I miss my mom, I miss my dad........ . ....this song is so heart felt and we can probably all relate! 💙 Six feet apart by Luke Combs🎵 . . . . . . . #homeandgardenig #citrusseason #backyarddesign #landscapingideas #backyardgardener #gardengoals #thecottagejournal #springyard #frenchcountrycottage #backyardvibes #countrylivingmagazine

I’m the luckiest girl on earth. My guy built me a picnic table and this is the view I have every night. We are officially on the wedding countdown (less than 1 month!). One of many things that Jeremy and I have in common is we love art projects. This cabin has been one big art project, and it’s been such a fun way to lead up to getting married. We’ve built something that we can enjoy for the rest of our lives. I still can’t believe I’m getting married to the guy of my dreams, and doing it all up north!✨💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #bhghome #cabindecor #cabinlife #cabinlove #cabinporn #cabins #cabinvibes #cabinweekend #charminghomes #cozycabin #cozydecor #picnictable #currenthomeview #diyprojects #escapethecity #fixerupperstyle #homedecor #housebeautiful #lakehouse #lakehousedecor #lakehouselife #lakehouseliving #logcabin #logcabinliving #logcabins #mybhghome #rusticmodern #thecabinchronicles #thecottagejournal

Hey guys, Happy Thursday!! How’s it going this week? All day yesterday I felt like it was Friday and it was only Wednesday, hehe 😜 lately all the days just run together..

We're half way through the @oneroomchallenge and there is still so much to do. The only thing I was able to get done this week was the ceiling & installing our new bedside lamps. I've been non stop with a client upholstery project and of course the #lepetitegreenhouse build. But I'm seeing some free time this weekend to get things done like painting our bedside tables & finishing all the furniture pieces. Oh and gotta order the new bed!

Meet Spoon. Spoon is a middle child & certainly suffers a bit from middle child syndrome. He is the quintessential skeerdy cat & bolts at the slightest noise. He gets highly OH-fended at the slightest thing & lets you know about it. If looks could kill. . . He is a silver chinchilla and white bicolor with green eyes. A lot of times, if you just see him from the front, his silver as not as pronounced because he is white all underneath and silver on top. THE BED is firmly his domain & that is where your are most lucky to find him. If he wants a belly rub, he rolls over into his back & lures you in. But be careful! He’ll bite. Not too hard though 😉 One time when I was cleaning he escaped the house & we didn’t realize it for hours. He was under the back deck. It took ages to get him out. Then he had fleas for months 🙄 We have to watch him super carefully when the door is open because he likes to try to bolt outside. I guess cowering under the deck once was so much fun that he desperately wants to do it again. At first he was my cat. Then he defected and became firmly team Sean, having little to do with me. Since I have been home, he has turned his coat yet again & decided that mama is OK. Porg is not into his hooman being stolen. Also probably payback for the breakfast thing (see Porg’s intro 2 posts back). He likes to climb up on your chest when you are lying on the bed & block the tv from view. He will stay there until you scratch him on the chest which promptly sends him into fits of licks in something that we call Mr. Lickyface. This is the only time he purrs. If you’re lucky, he’ll lick your forehead in approval. If you’re super lucky, he’ll give you a kiss. But your scratches have to be super good for that. He has a predilection for jumping up in the bed & letting out a pathetic little meow if you are napping. Usually he only does this if Sean is asleep. I think he’s worried daddy might be dead. He won’t leave the bed hardly if Sean is sick & takes up residence beside him. His favorite thing to do is hiss at Porg. I had never heard the cat hiss until we got Porg. 🤷🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️ CONTINUED in comments. . .

The story she told of being pushed on the swing by her twin sister, Bonnie (Grandma was Betty), and falling off and hitting her head and passing out. When she awoke, Bonnie had a shovel and was digging a hole because she thought Grandma had died. .. .. The time I took her for her first trip to Chipotle. 80 year old Grandma: mowing down her first giant burrito. Me: laughing. .. .. The time she bought me a red nighty when I asked for pajamas for Christmas, and I opened it in front of my entire family. .. .. The time she sewed a candy bar into my uncles new underwear she gave him for Christmas. .. .. The time she spelled "hell" "h-e-double l-l". .. .. The time she belched in the living room and I told her she belched like a trucker. She denied belching at all. .. .. The story she told about washing her mother's threadbare dress over and over and how she and her sister got so tired of looking at it that they threw it in the cookstove. .. .. The time she found what looked to be a piece of chocolate on the couch, put it in her mouth and realized it was my cousin's fake fingernail. And then went on to tell us what she did! .. .. I'm sure you can see why I loved spending time with her. I could go on and on. So many, many sweet stories too. .. .. So I'm savoring this photo from last year like I play over these stories in my head. When they come up in my memories of the past, I soak them in and enjoy them once more...or 2,293,057,260 times more... reminding myself that the moments in the past are truly valuable and worth holding onto and even sharing again and again. .. .. I miss laughing with her. .. #country_stilllife #thecottagejournal #still_life_nature #still_life_photography #thehub_vintage #thedesigntwinslovespring #mycountryhome #countrysamplerfarmhousestyle #countrylivingmag #countryliving #decorlovelanguage #myvintagetoucheshome #myvintagecottagestyle #cottagesandbungalows #antique_r_us

Let’s talk living room style later this morning. Come over to my stories to see more of this space...after I pull myself out of bed and have several cups of coffee. #livingroomdecor #livingroomdesign #vintagemodern #modernvintage #americanfarmhousestyle #thecottagejournal #cottagesandbungalows #myfleamarketstyle #fleamarketdecor #bhghome #mysouthernliving #yeahthatgreenville

When I first transformed this powder room I didn’t have any new decor to put in here and fun fact... I never ended up buying any! I found this mirror on the side of the road years ago and the hanging lantern was a flea market find and both needed some TLC. When thinking about what to use in the space I grabbed both of them and simply painted them the same color as the vanity in here and voila! A cohesive design for barely any money! That’s what I call a win! 😁🙌🏻

Yesterday a thing happened. The details are not important. But this happening triggered an eruption of all my fears I’ve ever had. Fears that were long buried. Fears that show themselves on a regular basis. And fresh new fears too. They erupted. It was ugly. Fin and the girl dogs were at my side. Rockette the disgruntled old girl leaned against me. She offered a steadiness. Duffy cuddled me gently... offering comfort. And Fin nudged. He sniffed my ear. He pressed against my heart. He pushed me to bravely look beyond the giant erupting volcano of fears to something way bigger. Something that makes that volcano infinitesimal. And the lesson was revealed. 👉 FEAR NOT. Those powerful words in the very breath of God.... urge us to look beyond our fears and worries and set our gaze and our hearts on the GREATNESS of God. If we reset our gaze then each moment, each breath can be read as a love letter authored by our faithful and MIGHTY God.... who NEVER leaves us to face our fears and worries alone... who gives us strength in our weakness and hope in our despair. And then sweet Fin decided Rockette neeeded a nip. I didn’t ask why and he didn’t offer an explanation. Cue blessed ruckus. Welcome to to a new day. * * Here is my FEAR NOT grungy but well loved mini junk journal. It’s in my Etsy shop. * * * * * #blameitonmyvintageheart #simplecozystyle #myhomedecorfinds #woodsandwhites #whitesandwoods #Countryliving #Countrylivingmag #simplecozynest #ourthriftstoredecor #vintagehomecrush #whitecottagecharm #frenchcountrycottage #passionforprettydecor #myvintagecottagestyle #vintagecottage #creativevintagedarlings #vintagefarmhouse #cozycreativehome #Countryhomemagazine #Cozycottagefarmhouse #countrycottage #morethanafarmhouse #thecottagejournal #farmhousefanatics #bitsofrusticcharm #fabulousfarmhousefriday #cottagechic #myhomesweetvintagehome

Hey There🤗❤️ . Jason used to be a window guy. He would replace windows and then bring me stacks of old and unusual windows. 😊😊 . When we moved here we got rid of almost all windows but now I’ve started accumulating them at auctions again 🤔😂 . Do you have old windows too? Here’s an idea for you to do with 6 windows and a few screws. 😊(and someone who knows how to put it together so it doesn’t fall down by morning🤪) . My window potting shed is a focal point in this tiny garden. 🌸🌸🌸I planted wisteria next to it so hopefully one day it will be covered in beautiful blooms. . Here’s to Thursday and gardens and repurposing old worn out junk🌸🌸🌸🌸 . #gardensofinstagram #gardeningismytherapy #gardening_feature #inspirationalgardens #gardensoftheworld #thedesigntwinslovespring #katecodkindreds #bhghome #bhg #bhgflowers #flowerbed #pottingshed #diyprojects #thecottagejournal #farmhousefeatures #cottagestyle #homeandgardenmagazine #fleamarketdecormagazine #betterhomesandgardens #countrylivingmag #thefarmhousemovement #jennywrendesign #michiana #indiana #midwestlivingmag #countrygardensmagazine

I haven’t had a chance to get back to Sag Harbor yet, so I’m sharing a throwback pic of a fav cottage to tide me, (and hopefully you), over. I’m only slowly starting to come out of my shelter in place cocoon. Happy Thursday, and stay well and stay safe! #cottagegoals #sagharbor #tbt #thehamptons

Nothing says summer to me like red, white, and blue. While I usually only get out my American flag decor for holidays, I’ve had my big flag out on the front porch since this whole COVID-19 pandemic started. . I can’t help but wonder how different this summer will probably be than others. Although our country is slowly opening back up, I’m sure vacation time will look different for many of us. I know we enjoyed our little mountain getaway last weekend in our vintage camper! . Are you planning a summer vacation? What will it look like? I can definitely say that camping is a great way to have fun and still do social distancing ☺️ . . . . #cottage #cottagehome #cottagedecor #cottagestyle #mycountryhome #mycountryliving #cottagesandbungalows #bhghome #thriftedhome #athomeinthewildwood #cozyhome #mycollectedhome #makehomeyourhaven #thecottagejournal #farmhouseinspired #homedecorblogger #diyblogger #americanflags #patrioticdecor #summerdecor

Antique ceramic large tile trivet set in a carved oak frame, circa 1910s. Made by "Les Faïenceries et Émaux de Longwy", founded in 1798, and situated in the Lorraine region of France. Lovely piece for the dining/kitchen table for a hot dish or teapot, but also as a decorative support for a plant pot or vase. Antique, vintage & handmade decor from rural France.

First fix electrics are done 👍🏻 going to have barn lights either side of this door which we are hoping to change for a stable one. The little greenhouse will go too as we have a beautiful old Victorian one which we will also renovate once the house is finished 🙂 also, concrete is being laid in the newer parts of the house today. Most excited 🙌🏻 . . #farmhouserenovation #farmhousefeatures #renovationlife #thecottagejournal #oldhomes #countryhouses #periodhome #periodhomesofinsta #fixerupper #renovationproject #cottagewindow #weatherboard #wehavesomeworktodo #ournewhome #listedbuildings

Uwielbiam swój dom, a najbardziej wracać do niego. Wracać z pracy, wracać z podróży lub z długiego spaceru. I muszę przyznać, że powiedzenie „nie ma jak w domu” jest wiecznie prawdziwe i aktualne. Lubię się szwendać po świecie i choć bardzo mi tego brakuje, to doceniam też miejsca, które są w mojej okolicy i dom, który na mnie czeka. Dobrego dnia dla wszystkich! . . . #niemajakwdomu #mojdom #mojemiejsce #mojewszystko #homesweethome #myhome #home #flowers #polnekwiaty #kwiaty #flowerstagram #featuremyflorallove #spacer #meinhaus #walk #floralflatlay #flowerpower #flowersmakemehappy #flower_daily #beautifulday #beautifulnature #naturelovers #natureperfection #naturepic #flowerlover #flowergram #countryside #country_stilllife #thecottagejournal #country

What’s your ideal weather? Mine is quite specific - sunshine with about a 60% covering of fluffy white clouds and a temperature of around 18C 😄 In other words sunny but fresh and not too glaring. This may or may not also be the ideal weather for taking photos on my phone - just coincidentally of course! Happy Thursday 🌸🌿💗🌿

Grab your sunscreen, and paddle on over to the fabulous lake, coastal, and beach inspired home from my friend @shiplapandshells . I found her account and her greenhouse is my inspiration for next year when we work on ours (fingers crossed). Head on over to her beautiful account and tell Kim I said hi friends! 💓🌸

My cozy corner!🌷I am loving my newly refreshed back door entryway with this @antiquefarmhouse bench~it’s the perfect size and welcomes us home! And of course I will always adore my antique French doors that hide my usually very messy laundry room! I only wish I could have moved my refrigerator out of the way to get a better angle for my pic. 📸 🤷🏼‍♀️ • Happy Wednesday, y’all! 🌷
