Dreaming In Color

I thought I would share something my heart is longing for.  This Chippy White Neutral Chick is dreaming of color, flowers, and sunshine and a comfy lounger for taking a summer nap.

While we are looking at this for the next few months.

I want to think about.....

Color, fresh air, sunshine!  Yep even us white and neutral decor girls need some color in our lives.  I find mine each and every summer through my garden.

Outdoor places during the summer.  Garden retreats are near and dear to my heart and I always carve out a space for a summer outdoor lounging spot in my garden.

These next pictures are from my past garden spaces.  Ohhhh how I cannot wait for Spring and Summer here in the Midwest.  I miss my sweet lounge chair and flowers.

Summer 2014

A few years ago I had an old vintage twin bed out on my deck that my lounge chair fit.  Loved this space.  Held up great through the summer.

I long to bring out my summer lounger once again.  Ahhhh, love to surround my outdoor space with flowers, chandeliers and a comfy lounger to rest, read and soak up the sun.

Sweet scents from flowers, sunshine and birds singing make my heart sing.

This girl gets it too.

So as we wait for the seasons to change and summer to return we can dream of our outdoor spaces to be.
If you would like some more outdoor garden space ideas you can go to my pinterest board here.

It's nice to dream about what is to come!!!! Hopefully a lot sooner than later!!!

Have a great rest of this week.

I have a little post coming up very soon on this beautiful piece of history I rescued. 

This pretty vintage door is going to find a new home and purpose in Junk Chic Cottage.  Stay tuned!

Meaningful Signs

Happy Sunday my friends.
I am just enjoying going into the new year with renewed hope and inspiration.

I am not a big fan of the months of January and February in the Midwest.  So cold and not too much going on. To fight the winter blues I am hoping to start some projects for the new year.

Probably nothing real big but little projects to brighten up the cottage over the winter months.

I was looking around my home and realized I have a collection of beautiful sayings and signs in my decor.  Thought I would share a few with you today
This is probably my favorite saying I put on the staircase wall up stairs.  Each morning this saying greets me to start my day.
Good message to start each day with.

Another sweet sign I have in my living room.
I like to think of my home as a cozy nest.  So anytime I can find a nesting sign I will put it somewhere in my home.

Always need a chippy cottage sign!

I have this one over my nightstand in our bedroom.

Even my refrigerator chalk board has a sign.

Even my plates have a pretty message.

This sign was gifted to me by a dear friend for a house warming gift.  

My tea mug that greets me each morning.

A wonderful reminder to see each day.
I want to make a few change ups to my guest bedroom and also the master bedroom and bath.    I find it amazing that sometimes little changes make the biggest difference in your decor.
So as winter marches on I hope to get a little decor bling going here soon.
Have a great week ahead.
