I love the edges, they are so dainty and sweet If you read my blog you know how much I love pink roses.

Each one is so different.

I wish I had a whole set of these.

Really I would love a set of each one. Can you imagine how beautiful a table would look with this pattern .

Hope you all have a beautiful pink Saturday.

Rusty Red Scales

I am joining Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home.
Our good friends went to Round Top and brought back these wonderful old, rusty, worn scales.

They are perfect for my kitchen, red.

I have them sitting on chest I got from my grandmother's back porch. My grandmother had the perfect shabby chic, cottage furniture.

I know they have a story. What store were they in?

Now they have a new story and it begins at Our Cottage Nest

Burlap and Roses

I found this cute little burlap bag a Canton a couple of months ago and I love it.

It is great for putting my roses in and bringing them in from the garden.

It has a cute little doily.

It is the perfect burlap bag.

White Wednesday

I am joining Faded Charm's White Wednesday.
I am sharing my shabby window box all dressed up for spring.

I bought this heavy metal piece at a garage sale several years ago and really did not know what I was going to do with it.As luck would have it, my guy likes to weld and he put together this window box.

I love driving up to my cottage nest and seeing my shabby white window box.

Happy White Wednesday!

Blue Bird

A new nest at our cottage.

We always enjoy watching this little blue bird, she is such a good little mother.

You can hear her babies. I wish I could see them. We have had blues birds in this little bird house for several years.

Bottle Tree

A colorful bottle tree. I remember when I saw bottle trees and thought they were so tacky. Now I love them. I want one!

I love all the bright colors. I wonder where they found such colorful bottles?

All sizes and shapes.

I am collecting bottles for a bottle tree at Our Cottage Nest.

White Wednesday

I am joining Faded Charm's White Wednesday.
I have a perfect chippy white table and chairs . I love the chippy white paint and rust, a great combination.

There is a blue bird family that has babies in the bird house. I wish you could see the mom, she would not come back while I was so close.

We enjoy sitting out here.

I love the detail on the chairs.

Happy White Wednesday!!!

Pink Saturday

I am joining Beverly at How Sweet The Sound for Pink Saturday. I love the color pink, I would have everything pink and white in my nest if my guy would go for it. We are not there yet. I am sharing two things today. My sweet little chair. When I brought it home it was so ugly. It was gold and brown, yuk!!! I recovered the cushion in a soft pink and painted it white and look how beautiful she is.
I am also sharing my first pink rose bouquet. It was so nice just to go outside and cut fresh flowers.They smell wonderful.

A pink rose from my garden. I think I am going to plant more roses today, pink of course.

Have a fabulous Pink Saturday!

Easter Bunnies At Our Nest

I am linking up with My Romantic Home's Show and Tell Friday. You should pop over and see all the fun stuff she has on her blog. I am doing a little decorating for Easter.
I love the chocolate bunnies, they look like you could just eat them.

A cute little rabbit in her nest.

The two little rabbits below are my favorite, they are so whimsical.

Happy Friday!
