Cottage Love

Good morning, my friends.
Have you had the opportunity to discover Mias Landliv, yet?
Mia lives on a smallholding in Norway with her husband, two cats, some sheep and a few hens. She blogs about country living, her garden, home, decorating and patchwork projects.  She crochet's and knits beautifully, too.
I asked her a few weeks ago if I could show a few of her photos and she so graciously gave me permission.  So here it is:

Isn't her cottage kitchen adorable?

Did you see the chandelier?

I love the colors that she uses, she has a way of putting it all together so prettily. 

Isn't this wonderful?!?!?

And now the bedrooms.

Aren't her colors wonderful? 
As we close the door and look back at Mia's country cottage we see this.

Thank you, dear Mia for allowing us to see your precious little home.  To see more of her eye-candy go over to Mias Landliv and tell her that I sent you.

Have a lovely weekend.

Hi Cindy,
What beautiful photo's! I have not meant Mia, so I will go over for a visit.
How was your weekend?. We had a mean rain and wind storm all weekend long. The wind was howling and the pool needs to be drained down a bit from all the rain.
Have a sweet day my friend and big hugs, Elizabeth
