Isn’t it awesome how we bloggers and blog readers can ‘meet’ someone through email and automatically know that you like that person?
Meet my new friend Tricia from Little Cottage on the Pond.
I saw the photos of her master bedroom on Hometalk, and had to hop over for a closer look.
So glad that I did! Turns out, we have a few things in common. We both live in small cottages. We both have 4 children. And we’re both trying to figure out the best way to live in those small cottages with 6 people, and still maintain our sense of style.
Tricia has figured out how to do this beautifully. (I’m still working on it!)
Here’s her lovely kitchen. It’s gone through a couple of makeovers – don’t you love the final result?
Off the kitchen is the laundry room. I would be happy (ok that’s a bit of a stretch) to do laundry if it was in this room! Lots of great organization ideas…
I love this clock over the mantel…
… and the comfy couches where the whole family gathers on the weekends for movie nights. (Oh – and you have to read about her Sunday night Dead & Dinner parties!)
She has two very lucky daughters – I would have be super happy with either of these rooms as a teenager!
And she paints! Lots of beautiful furniture pieces for her home and for sale at a shop in her hometown. Here’s a peek at one of the stunning pieces that you’ll see on her blog.
I hope that you enjoyed the tour. Please stop over and say Hello to Tricia – there is lots more to see at Little Cottage on the Pond.
