End of Summer Loveliness

While perusing BHG's website and their vast store of images, I came across a few that you may have seen before, hopefully you won't mind seeing them again, if you have.  This is a mobile home that a very creative lady made look like a darling little cottage.  I am a sucker for lovely cottage images any day of the week.









This has to be my very most favorite make-over ever.



I love the map and this little kitchen booth.  If I ever re-do a kitchen again, I really want one of those in it.


The rest are random cottage images that I found at BHG.

Speaking of cottages, have you seen September's Cottage of the Month at The Old Painted Cottage?  The Secret Garden Cottage is featured this month, go have a look.

Next is a photo that a friend of mine took of me and her little one.  She entitled it "Making Friends".  The little one has the sweetest little head of strawberry-blonde hair.  She had pulled out what her mommy had put in it, so it was standing on end, I think it is so cute.



With that I wish you all a wonderful long weekend!
I hope you will have sunny days and fair evenings.

Hugs,

What great pictures. I'd love the green and cream kitchen. Makes me want a kitchen make-over desperately. Hope you're having a fun weekend.

I agree about a booth or banquette. I'd love one too. Such great kitchens...

Hi Cindy, I am here, just so busy with family and living.
That mobile home cottage is adorable. and I really like the red 50s looking kitchen at the end.
The sweetest picture in the group is you and the cute toddler, you both are cute as can be.

Oklahoma has a big thank you for Canada. A big cold front from Canada is coming down the plains right now and starting tomorrow, our temps are supposed to drop about 30 degrees and stay cool for a long time. My thanks really goes to the Lord though.

And I am sad to say that I have still not got to the P.O. to mail your tiny thrift store treasure. Hopefully, soon!

hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

Hi Cindy, it's hard to believe that those first pics are of a mini home! Amazing! And so cute. When I was growing up we always had a large map of the world on the kitchen wall behind the table. I love the idea but have no walls in my kitchen that don't have cupboards on them! We are enjoying our daughter and grandson's visit so much. Enjoy the rest of the long weekend! Hugs, Pamela

I totally forgot about the cottage of the month. I haven't looked at it in a year I think. I have a lot of catching up to do!

Betty said...

Sheila said...

The view if you and your little friend is similar to one that I took of a woman helping her child lick an ice cream cone. It really works!

That little cottage-like home is really beautiful. I love the sunny looking kitchen. That person did a fabulous job with the decorating. The little girl is cute. Shannon

So many darling kitchens and rooms. We had a nice relaxed weekend. Very needed. Did not get my kitchen painted but that will have to wait what with how sick my youngest has been. She is almost right as rain. Not quite but loads better.
