Shabby Cottage Pink Saturday Feature!

Hello my darling lovely friends!
Welcome to my Romantic Cottage!

My name is Olivia, I have a wonderful husband and I am a mommy to three darling children. We have a sweet little home that I enjoy fluffing up on a regular basis.

Oh my yes...who said laundry had to be boring!
I spend alot of time doing laundry might as well make it pretty place!

Besides being a busy mom, I have two flea market booths and an Etsy store!
I simply adore just about anything and everything Shabby and Romantic!
I like to find discarded items and turn them into fabulous treasures.
Let's stop for a moment and enjoy a sweet treat!

Pink and white are my favorite colors...
They are calming, soothing and happy for me to look at.
A peak in my pink powder room.

I am a thrifty gal and a HUGE believer that you can decorate your home in a cozy cottage style on any budget no matter how tiny it may be! Think outside the box...don't be shy about hunting for treasures in handmade Etsy stores, resale shops, flea markets and tag sales!
It is amazing what pink and white paint can do...most of my items come from tag sales and flea markets and then I paint them to match my cottage colors.
While it is still nice out, let's have a spot of tea on my romantic porch...

Yummy Treats!

  14. Hi Olivia,
    Your home is simply cottage elegance and sooooo dreamy!

  15. Hello and Happy Pink Saturday. Loved your pretty cottage post. That laundry room! With three kids and all the washing and you keep it so pretty? How on earth? It was nice to "meet you!"

  16. Happy Pink Saturday, sweet Olivia! You are a busy lady and I love what you've done in the laundry room. Yup, all our spaces can use a little pink. Have a nice weekend.


  17. Olivia your rooms are absolutely gorgeous! And I love your blog - I will join as a follower. You are so lucky that your husband is ok with all the pink! I am redoing a few rooms right now in the white shabby theme and I am going to accent with the blue you have used, but alas, no pink! Happy Pink Saturday! ~Marti

  18. Good Morning! Happy Pink Saturday/New Year! Lovely blog and decorating. As I was reading your post, your family photo came into view. Looks like you have a great family going there! Something to cherish deeply - in the ups and downs and in betweens. (Never let go, go. I mean we have to let go at times, but not let go at the same time.) I enjoyed reading your profile. (Amen.) Well, I'm off to Fabby's and then, perhaps like Jenny's doing (the flying piggy's from Beverly's post today), I need to wash my face and get to more pinks! Thanks, Jenn

    Your home is gorgeous as usual.
    I miss your visits. I am trying to this year be diligent in blogging with those blogs I follow.
    I especially love the wreath and I am sure I will have to make one.
