  14. How adorable!! I guess cottage style means "homey" to me. It takes you back to a time when things were easier, calmer, more family oriented. I think of pies cooling on a window sill, flowers and veggies growing in the garden...curtains blowing in a breeze.......

    ReplyDelete
  15. Those are so cute. For me, cottage means sweet, cozy and full of nostalgia and whimsy. A lot like your home!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I LOVE cherries. That is what my kitchen is decorated in. Cottage means to me, homey, cozy, and not wanting to leave. Having a cat curled up in your lap and reading a good book.

  20. Oooh! The measuring cups and the tray are adorable! I love all things cottage/vintage. Every time I see those vibrant cherry reds, sunny yellows and cornflower blues all set against crisp cool white, it warms my heart and reminds me of the kitchen I grew up in. I have lots of my Mama's things and I cherish every one of them!

    Sweet giveaway, my dear!
    Hugs, Mrs B

  21. Ohhhhh how I love cherries!!
    When I think of a cottage I think of 2 things (depending on where it is)--a sweet little cottage here in the states I think of cherries and strawberries, yellow gingham curtains, and white walls. it's light and airy. If it was an English cottage there would be lots of pink and roses galore :)

  22. nice giveaway! I think to me, cottage is comfort. That means something a little different to each but I think of soft textiles, flowers, vintage feel. The kind of place you want to grab a blanket and a cup of tea and just rest.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Sweet! Cottage to me is somewhere that you can curl up with a good book, eat homemade goodies and put your feet underneath you on the sofa. It is a place where you can see the personality of the owner the minute you walk up. Flowers greet you and usually there is a porch for relaxing and watching the world go by. When you go through the front door you are greeted by yummy smells and cozy furnishings. No appointment needed.
    Love the give away. I have cherries in my kitchen and in my craft room. Love them! Thank you for the opportunity!

  77. "Cottage" to me means home. It means I don't have to be wealthy to be rich - rich in blessings, rich in a home that my family loves, full of grandkids that don't have to worry about ruining Grandmom's furniture. Cottage means relaxed and vintage and heartfelt....lazy summer days and warm fires in the winter. Cottage is better than all the castles in the world!

  90. My cottage style is my kitchen in red, white and cherry motifs. I like the vintage feel of cottage and it reminds me of the days in my grandmother's kitchen baking cookies in the old wood stove and fetching water from the red pump and sink in the corner. She always had an apron on and the coziness of the kitchen is something I have tried to emmulate in my own. Cottage to me is modern convenience with a vintage flavor to honor those who taught us that the heart of our homes will always be the kitchen.
