SUNDAY COTTAGE FLUFFING….TYBEE STYLE

SUNDAY FLUFFING…I have time on Sunday afternoons to add a pillow here or move a pillow there. It is a simple thing ..I guess it is like pushing the "refresh" button on the computer.

99 steps with my latest favorite fabric….made into throw pillows for the front bedroom

pondering the change of color in one of my favorite kitchens of all times


fluffing with "Ralph Lauren " sale linens

adding some happy yellow to a bedroom
custom vintage linens from my mother's guest room 

I love neutrals and textures.. straw.. shells..and  linen fabrics and leather tipped  throw pillows

the magic of  pink on a tiny cottage large on personality

a sleeping porch  ready for a Sunday afternoon nap

same fabrics..different space


reflections….of the neutrals

starting to fluff  an old Tybee cottage




a room full of windows…in an old raised cottage with 12 foot ceilings

a touch of Bellamy always makes it perfect!!!

Pillows, Tulips, Art And Spring.....




I have been sick (NOT a good sick person) and so I took a "photo look" around the cottage while I was  recuperating. I was waiting for ONE warm sunny day to appear so I could feel warm sunshine and begin to heal from that.
A friend brought me tulips to cheer me up and they did exactly that!.
Their color made me very happy and once the bad weather broke...I was on the mend....

a few tulips in the bedroom

my new cotton jersey euro shams from Celeadon in Mt. Pleasant ,SC www.celadonathome.com

a punch of color cheers up the soul

cleaned off the table for the tulips!!!!!

my favorite.....my son painted this water color for me from a photograph ..the view from " 99 Steps to the Beach"

something  else from  Celadon. in Mt. Pleasant SC

nothing like a wooden ceiling

my new yellow bike ( promise I did not buy it to match the outdoor panels)
my closet... free of winter coats!

My best friend TRAMP  in his favorite spot on my bed( when I lived on Isle of Hope)

 kitchen pantry door knobs from my on line storewww.janecoslick.myshopify.com

A sure sign of spring  www..tiffaniart.com
Sometimes we are so busy living we forget to live.!!!
I have been so caught up in my current project, I haven't taken time to appreciate my surroundings.
HAPPY SPRING...
