Cottage Dreams

I found this sweet poem on Pinterest and wanted to share it with all of you.
It set my mind to thinking about cottage decor.
This is a cottage pincushion.
I think a larger version would make a nice tea cozy.
I'm not even going to tell you that I'm going to make this, because roughly 95% of the time I never get those projects even started, let alone done!
Beautiful cottage flowers for a wall....
and a hand made cottage pillow.

And finally a sweet cottage pattern to make your own cottage pillow or t-towel.....
What is it that comes to your mind when you think of a cottage?

All images from pinterest.


  1. Morning Kimberly, oh love all the cottage goodies, even the word I love....that pillow is so sweet, want it,:) Blessings Francine.

  2. Good morning! LOVED all of this! But then cottages are one of my favorite themes. Reminds me of comfy, warm feelings of family and love. Enjoy your day!

  3. I think you should make a tea towel with that pattern it is adorable. Add a gingham ruffle to the towel and it will say cottage decor to me

  4. Oh darling! Love the theme! Did you make that sweet pillow? Thanks, too, for the embroidery pattern!

  5. Oh... you know I like this!
    Living in a Cottage, I love anything cottage.

  6. I adore all things cottage. I like to think of my home as a cottage even tho in reality it is a brick ranch house!
    Love the sweet pillow! If I ever get back to embroidering, the pattern you've shared today would be one I'd use.
    Have a great day!

  7. All of the images are so sweet! I love the poem.

  8. I love these images of a cottage. To me a cottage is a small house with flower gardens around the yard, a few shade trees and flowering shrubs and a white picket fence, maybe window boxes on the front windows and a lovely covered porch. That's my dream home. I try to make our raised ranch as cottage like as possible but it sure doesn't look like my dream home especially on the outside. Inside, maybe. I like cozy and comfortable with vintage decor and pretty colours inside. I really like that cushion! It is beautiful. Have fun making your home a cottage! Hugs, Pamela

  9. I love all of those designs. What do I think of when I think of the word " cottage" I think of a little house in a garden with a picket fence but around it the garden is filled with all kinds of old fashioned flowers. Then the cottage has to have a thatched roof and vines growing up around the eves. There has to be chairs set up in the garden so you can sit and have tea.

  10. Lovely design, I think of smoke from a chimney, hollyhocks, and a winding paved pathway, fresh bread, and aprons. Cheers from Jean

  11. I think of cozy nights around a fire place, or a comfy chair to curl up in to read a book.
    I LOVE cottage decor, it's my favourite and always has been.
    I love the little pattern, I'm not going to say I will do it, but I'm going to pin it just in case once ALL of my other projects are done, I have time and the inclination to do it. Haha...sounds like I just made every excuse possible doesn't it.
    Hugs, cindy

  12. I'm really running late today at catching up with everyone. such a sweet poem and I thank you for sharing it....

  13. I think of one of those back yard houses all decked out in white and pink. love the postcard and cottage goodies!
