Welcome to My Country Cottage.
I have been so excited about starting this new blog. I am country cottage at heart. Honestly, I don't know why I waited so long to do this. We moved into Maywood cottage in 2006 and I must say I have been stuck between styles. I love the primitive style; the worn, often tattered look of yesteryears goods but my heart really belongs to the cottage style. Its mix and match of old and new has always appealed to me. I love the floral, stripes, checks, paisleys....well, just all of it. Throw in a few farmhouse items and I'm happy.
While the style of this house is cottage there is still a whole lotta cottage that needs to happen. Now that I have made up my mind what direction I want to go there’s going to be a lot happening here at Maywood Cottage. Now to make up my mind where to start. I have the bones of a cottage style garden with all the roses, hydrangea, lavender, lilies, and wisteria, to name a few; perhaps I will start in the garden. But then again, I love to paint and create so maybe I will start inside the house with a new coat of cottage style color. And, I have been scouring the local antique and vintage shops, making my list of things I want to add here and there to make that comfy cottage home. Well, you will just have to visit often to see what is happening at Maywood Cottage.
