Cottage Style Blog Party!!




It's a Party!


A Cottage Style Party!!!














It's monthly blog party time at the Etsy Cottage Style Style Blog and I thought I would post my favorite pictures from past posts. All my favorite vintage cottage finds. Hope you enjoy!







Iris Tea Set I received for my Nursing School Graduation


I love anything with Irisis on it!


Flowers and Purple...two of my favorite things!!


Amazing buttons found in a big box of buttons!

Art created from vintage finds






A beautiful vintage bridal veil....




We stood outside in the freezing cold at an auction a week after my shoulder surgery


waiting for this fan ! It's my favorite $5.00 auction purchase!!




Love these vintage curtains. Wasn't sure what to do with the fabric?


For now....using them as.....CURTAINS!!





Vintage ribbon...loads of it. Using it in my art projects.


Amazing how many ways you can use that soft green!


Thanks for stopping by.

Hope you will come back again..

Have a great Wednesday!!

You have such a beautiful, engaging blog. I have enjoyed your lovely photgraphs and meeting another person who shares the many of the same passions I have. One can never have too many buttons, or enough colors of ribbon! Have a great day. Casey
