Grow Your Blog

Hi, thanks for joining me. I am Di at Cottage-Wishes. I collect vintage finds and enjoy the hunt. 
Hubby and I moved from Florida to North Carolina to be near our children and grands. hubby with our 2 Yorkie puppies, Sophia and Maggie Mae.
 We joke that one has blonde hair like me and one grayish like hubby. 

I like country french and blue and white. 
 I enjoy repurposed furniture and crafting with my finds. I took a 60's jewelry chest and painted it like my dresser. 
 Vintage fabric have always caught my eye. I love the rich colors and the history they hold. 


Some of my fun projects are this metal hanging and chair

I love using chalk paint and had a friend upholster it with me feed sacks. We lived in buffalo early in our marriage 

And I love decorating with old wood pieces 

We are so blessed to be in the area near our families. 

Here are 2 of our grands. 

Our other family is in South Carolina at the beach

We always find time to refresh our souls here 

 Thanks to Vicki for getting us all together. For one lucky visitor I have a sweet giveaway. Please leave a contact email. If you would follow that would be great. Come sit awhile. Di

Christmas Love

I am so graced to have such a large loving family.  With that comes loss, we have lost 2 Uncles, 1 Aunt and 1 cousin this year.  So many memories of fun times we shared.  But with God's gift, His Son we know that heaven awaits.

The gift of live ever lasting.  I am so thankful for my blogging friends.  I received 2 sweet packages this week.  The first was a big box from my swap buddy Linda @Country Pickin's

A fluffy Santa ...Ho, Ho, Ho.  A wonderfully stiched Americana sign (Which by the way is awesome)

I love how this fits my style like a glove!  Linda is just wonderful.

This sweet basket and cardinal were also in the box.  I am very lucky.  It made my day.  Thanks Amy from Bumble Bee Lane for coordinating all these fun swaps.

My next gift came from Becky Shander "Wish Upon a Star" Necklace.  I loved it but my heart knew I would have to pass it forward to a sweet family with a 17 year old girl.  At work we sponsered a family.  I just knew Becky would love to have someone share her talent at Christmas, so I gifted it with a special book and other presents.  I loved this necklace.  Thank you Becky.DSC00606
And so sweet friends, I hope your Christmas is Magical.
Love and Kisses,
