Mo's Cottage Sneak Peek

Remember the post I did a while back about the pink zebra shutters and garage door? Well, here is another little peek at what I have been up to lately. This was an old garage that was separate from the main house. It was given a new coat of paint, shutters and an awning over the garage doors. That was just the outside. More pics to follow so please stay tuned.

Coastal Living & Cottage Style Magazine

Hi friends. Did you think I had fallen off the face of the earth? It has been a very busy month. Lots of wonderful things going on. As some of you may know, I was chosen to be on the cover of Coastal Living magazine for the month of November. The cottage that made the cover is called. Cottage on the Green. This was such a fun project to do. To read more about this cottage be sure to click on these links:

I have also been featured in the Fall/Winter 2014 edition of Cottage Style Magazine. I am truly honored to be in both these fine publications.

More of Anna's talent …..adds so much to the space. I found the vase( their house warming present) in Bluffton SC at Fabulous Finds
located in Discount Fabric. They are a new store with wonderful thing.

it is all in the details….unique  things from their lives.

love the over sized mirror from Country Gypsy is Blackshear  Ga. the the new but vintage looking fixtures.

They used recycled heart pine for the flooring and it is beautiful.!!!!

I was the sounding board for the project. I was there to advise and encourage and for treasure hunting..
I am so happy they live on Tybee and that Anna can ride her bike  to work.( if she wants to) She is the art teacher at the Maritime Academy Charter School on Tybee. We are very lucky to have the wonderful school and they are lucky to have Anna.

Anna is  doing the flowers for the wedding reception for her family in two weeks. It will be on the family property out from Savannah and I will be photographing her as she creates "EVERYTHING ANNA"

Creating chandeliers from vintage tobacco baskets to hang in trees or in the tent…..covered with roses or hydrangeas…or maybe not...

                         GENIUS AT WORK…….

Sunday Sharing…..

I have been "blogless", if there is such a word, and I hope to improve that as the days go by. So many things  are happening that seem to interfere with what I love to do… PONDER AND SHARE.
Today my computer is being difficult and so I am sharing a few thing that I have created over the years that make me smile when I looked at them.
Happy Sunday….. Enjoy!!
