I couldn't resist

Pin It Now!

I went into Vintage & Vogue Friday night and I couldn't resist this cute little snow covered cottage! It fit perfectly with my cake stand and cloche! (you can click on the photo to see it up close)

I'll be sharing some photos of the shop all decorated for Christmas later in the week! It is gorgeous! And wait until you see the beautiful gift they gave me! Unbelievable!!!

Oh my goodness, I clicked on the link to the shop and now I'm crying at my desk. I could live there! I tried to transport myself through the screen but it didn't work! I can't wait to see the pics of the shop all done up for the holidays! And what did they give you, what did they give you??!! Thanks for sharing yet another bright and cheery place with us!

Hi Cindy. This little cottage is so adorable, and setting onto a cake pedestal with a cloche on top makes it look both magical and stunning.

And I'm still loving the "no red" look! I've included some photos on my blog of a room in my home that has no red, too. I'd love for you to stop by to see it!

Cute cottage. I've seen several little towns in so many places expensive and cheap. I'll check out your link.

Ciao

I wouldn't have passed it up either! I could totally collect those!!
Awesome!

I found this picture at the perfect moment--and now I shall put one of my Dickens Village houses under the cloche. You have the bestest ideas! I am blogging all month about dishes and tablescaping, and I wanted to know if I could possibly use some of your photos as an example of how to display dishes, and ways to store them. And please pick up your Dish award!

Oh Cindy, I wouldn't be able to resist either. That looks adorable.
I clicked on the link to the store, and my husband walked by, and said wow, what's that? I said a store. He said, oh it's not around here is it? I said, Noooo, it's in Calf. He said, oh good, otherwise you be dragging me there! lol! I said, I am going anyway, it will only take me 4 hours to get there. lol!

What a lovely little cottage! Did they give you a big one to live in to go with it? I will cross my fingers!

Anonymous said...

Wow that is just adorable!! And as if it weren't cute enough displayed all by itself, your wonderful photography skills bring out its charm even more with the pretty, lit Christmas tree in the background!
I visited the Vintage and Vogue Boutique through your link once more, and noticed that I have a tiered metal shelf like the one in the picture with the black and white dishes on it! I just recently acquired it ~ it's actually my early Christmas present from hubby.

Thanks for sharing and I can't wait to see what they gave you!!:)

This is the cutest little cottage. I so want to go to that store but I know I will go broke...but my place would look wonderful when I came home with all the treasures I purchased. You are so lucky to have it near you. :)

The little cottage looks even more special under the cloche. Good news about the layoff - so many people are being laid off at this time of the year. We all must count our blessings! Sally

Cindy your little Snow covered cottage looks magical under the cloche. I've just visited Vintage and Vogue - what a beautiful shop, I think they may have a regular visitor. I'm looking forward to seeing the gift they gave you!

Essemia said...

I've always wanted a house that looks that way. With snow on and filled with lovely things. I do have a home that I like but I guess this has something to do with my childhood LOL.
Lovely it is.
Hope you have a nice day.
Love Elzie
