My Cottage

I'm participating on Show Off your Cottage Monday on The House in the Roses. I love that blog. Every post is just magical and beautiful!

I've posted these photos before and some of have not been updated, but I thought it would be nice to have a little home tour in one spot. Here are some of my favorite spaces in my home.
My bedroom ...

Living Room ...

Dining Room ...

Dining Area in the Kitchen ...

Patio ...

Garden ...

If you've never been to The House in the Roses, go take a peek. Its like walking through a dream.


  1. It's all very lovely! I particularly like your covered patio.

  2. Thank you for the tour! Your flowers are amazing and now I'm ready for spring:(

  3. It's beautiful, sugar! I especially love the way you've done the patio but the dining room pulls at my heart also. Hubs and I were married 48 years ago in Yorktown, VA. So it has a very sentimental place in my heart from when we dated and went to movies in Williamsburg. Happy to have met you, sweet chick. Drop by for a visit if you have time! I love comments also.

  4. Lovely pictures. I will have to make a pillow like the one you have on the bed. I really like it.


  5. Hi Melanie...

    My friend, I just seen your post pop up on my list and had to come's been a little while since we've visited!

    Ohhhh...Darlin', your home is absolutely gorgeous and I thoroughly enjoyed my tour! You know...after going through the tour, my thoughts were...I love how you've mixed some of the natural wood tones in with all that wonderful white! I think having a few furniture pieces (natural wood) mixed in with the white really warms everything up!!! Sooo very beautiful, my friend!

    I had to go down through a few of your posts that I've missed (so sorry). I just love how you've refinished your dining room table and did a fabulous job! That room is simply gorgeous!!! Thank you for sharing your fabulous home with us...this was a real treat, my friend!!!

    Warmest wishes,

  9. I love your home, I love the simplicity of it. I feel that less is more. I love your outside patio also with the hutch and white curtains.

  10. Hello, I just found your blog thru The House in the Roses- and so glad I did! I am redoing my bedroom and couldn't decide whether to go all white or leave the bed, armoire and nightstand wood. Well, your bedroom photo made my decision to go with the wood - your room is just lovely and so peaceful looking, the perfect retreat. Thank you so much for sharing.

  11. Your home is so beautiful! Everything looks like it popped off the pages of a magazine! Lovely!
    Thanks for sharing it with us.
    Be a sweetie,
