Cottage of the Week and Graphic of the Day

 It’s Sunday morning and yes…it is time for another beautiful
Cottage of the Week!

I am so happy to introduce you to

 the imaginative force behind a beautiful blog named Songbird
I know you are going to love her and her wonderful home shared with the love of her life.  It is located on a beach at the southern tip of the Netherlands…Europe is her backyard (that sounds fabulous to me! : )
Come and join me and experience her “nesting” talents as she masterfully accomplishes her dream…creating a garden cottage on the beach! Or Coastal Industrial Cottage as she calls it!
 So…sit back…have a cup of something yummy and imagine you are sitting on a a beautiful patio in the Netherlands with a new friend named Marianne…
 So beautiful…
 charm is every where…what a perfect place to spend some time outdoors or gather for a meal with family and friends
 or we can take a seat here…so much beauty and so much to see!

Welcome to the craft room this is my favorite spot…Marianne has transformed this room into a special place that just super charges her creativity…
organization that looks like a mini piece of art…
there is so much attention to detail…this is just a small sampling…
special touches are everywhere
and I do mean everywhere!   
 I simply love the cozy comfy feeling of this 
and the handmade headboard.
I can’t help it…I have to show you a close up of this intricate afghan!
 How wonderful is this headboard…it changes with the seasons! You have to go and see the sparkling version…this headboard is like a blank canvas and Marianne is the artist that likes to change things up!
This closet is another shining glory in the bedroom …a magical tranformation
 here’s a little sneak peek of the inside!
Now here is a very small room…the reading/guest room…
pillows…pillows…pillows…and striped walls
  even in the tiniest of spaces…Marianne’s love shows in every nook and cranny…
 this hand created piece simply amazes me…it just says HOME!
 My heart melts…during the Christmas season…the kitchen becomes a wonderland!
 If you love mantles you must visit Marianne…but make sure to you have the time because you are not going to want to leave her gallery of simply GORGEOUS…CREATIVE…IMAGINATIVE…HEARTFELT creations…you can not believe the selection!
There is just so much to see her…like this desk makeover
 this chair redo
 whimsical crafts such as these cupcake candle holders!
 I would be remiss if I didn’t share some beautiful tulips after having such a loving visit to Holland…you must take a click over to see the importance of the oranges…fascinating!
 I want to thank Marianne for opening her doors to us today and sharing her heart which you can feel beating with every turn of the page…I hope you go and visit with her…I know that you will feel as though you have been transported to a fascinating place…there is just so much to see and experience…ENJOY!
I will be adding the graphic of the day to this post later on today…so check back : )
Told you I would be back with the Graphic of the Day!
 In honor of Songbird who shared her love with us today…
here you go…
