Cottage & Spring Style

I just picked up the new issue of Country Living magazine. As usual, the cover caught my eye. This issue has a lot of great ideas and inspiration for spring decorating, cottage decorating, and entertaining.

As Spring begins I like to add touches of the cottage look in my home. If you like the cottage style then you should visit Country Living Magazine's website and enter their contest to win the cover look of their May, 2008 magazine issue.

Adding a spring/cottage touch to your home can be as simple as displaying a bucket or planter with real or artificial hydrangeas or lilacs as seen in the Country Living photo (left) and in my photo from my living room (below). I also added an antique cracker jar with shells and sea stars, finishing with a round quilted toile placemat.





Be Inspired! ...and good luck if you enter Country Living's drawing! -Karol

I enjoyed reading your blog. I love the Cottage Decor. My husband is a pastor, we live in WV. I think I would love living near the beach.. I look so forward to the serenity of our beach vacation.

Hello Karol. I get Country Living too, but the British mag of the same name is quite different. One thing is the same though, the front covers are always beautiful.

Ok, we are definintely losing touch, and it's just too sad. I don't even have your new home address :O(

I must go. Little one is ready for bath time. Just wanted to say hello & I hope life is good! xxxx
