Hi, I’m Sandy and I’d like to welcome you to “Shady Meadow Cottage”! I’m so glad you stopped by.
Having retired a few years ago and downsizing into a smaller house, my husband and I set about adding the personal touches that would turn our house into a home. We both believe that your home should be a haven from the outside stresses of life. A place where you can go to relax, unwind and just be yourself. We have always tried to decorate our home in a way that nurtures this feeling.
We have lots of projects planned. Things like adding a fireplace in the living room, adding crown molding, baseboards and bead board throughout the house, a laundry room re-do, updated bathrooms and, who knows, maybe even a complete kitchen re-do. I can’t wait to share it all with you.
Some other things we will be talking about:
Cottage Style Decorating - We both love things like painted bead board, crown molding, baseboards and vintage items. I also love flowered china dishes and tea cups, baskets, wicker and lace curtains. Anything that will give our home that cozy, cottage look. We often frequent garage sales and antique stores where you can find that perfect cottage accessory.
Gardening – The outside should also be a place where you can relax and recharge and I like carrying the cottage theme into the garden as well. I love things like a winding garden path, park benches, day lilies, a white picket fence, wicker furniture and container plants.
Recipes - I have been dealing with a chronic health condition for some time and I want to explore eating more healthy foods. Things like eating gluten free and adding more whole foods to our diet. I’ll be looking for yummy new recipes to share with you.
Out and About - We live in the Seattle area, so I will be sharing some of the beauty surrounding us, as well as some of the places we like to visit like gardens, cute little towns with cottage style shops and antique stores.
