Welcome to the Cupcake Cottage.
Summer 2010 style.
Do you ever change your decor out for the seasons?
Or get the urge just to move stuff around for a change?
Well it hit me when I looked at my living room and just thought...
b l a h
So I switched out the chocolate brown curtains for white ones.
like a breath of fresh air,
everything felt better.
BUT, of course I couldn't stop there...
Threw a simple white slipcover over our wingback chair (which needs to be reupholstered).
For a touch of whimsy, I added a vintage feed sack to the back of the wingback chair.
Found it from a cute little etsy shop, Myra Melinda.
Just tucked the little darling in real snug and tight.
Added a bunch of light neutral pillows.
Because I looove pillows.
*clearance sales at Pottery Barn are wonderful*
Finally got around to framing some of my photos.
I arranged them with a cupcake photo I found at a lovely photography shop, Under A Blue Sky
and quote notes purchased from The Lettered Cottage.
One quote simply says "smile"
because it never hurts to remind yourself to smile everyday.
and the other just makes me feel warm and cozy all over...
" A good laugh is like sunshine in the house. "
A white cotton table cloth drapes over the sofa so I don't have to worry about dirty paws and such.
Plus I like how it just adds to a more casual feel.
Found this little locker bin at my mom's favorite antique store and just had to get it for Noah's toys.
I always have fresh flowers in every room
(which isn't hard to accomplish considering I have a 600 sq ft home).
My dad painted that little fish on a rock he found several years ago.
And I enjoy keeping pretty books displayed around the house for quick inspiration.
I purchased this burlap pillow from Pottery Barn (on sale of course)
and then hand painted one of my favorite words on it.
Oh soft, cushy pillows.
In case you were wondering.
The number three is my birthday number and part of Josh's.
Whenever you visit, you have a fresh pair of cozy slippers if your feet get cold.

I hope you enjoyed your visit.
Definitely a pleasure showing you around.
I hope to paint my entry table as soon as the weather drys out.
Enjoy some more pretty at Joyce's
and have a fabulous weekend!
