Welcome to Take 5. What is Take 5 you ask…well it is a collection of 5 things that I think you will all enjoy! It can be themed…random…food…crafts…home decor and everything in between. Hopefully you will love them enough to take 5 minutes out of your busy day… relax and enjoy! It’s all about
The Cottage Market…but today we are going to check out
five that have that cottage style and flair.
What I LOVE about them is that they are understated but oh so precious!
It doesn’t have to cost a fortune to have a fabulous porch. Let’s take a look.
Oh for the love of aqua! How wonderful is this simple porch setting…a table…a few vintage chairs and your favorite items and in an instant you have a cozy spot…ah yes…you can’t go wrong with fresh flowers!
What a sweet spot…a simple couch…chairs…coffee table and a cool little chandy you have a magical cottage porch.
Many of the items you can find at Good Will or garage sales…add your special touches and you can have a beauty like this one without the astronomical cost of a patio suite. Oh what a little imagination can do!
This covered porch is simply charming…you probably have all the makings to this set-up in your own home! The Japanese lanterns add just the right about of kitchy! Oh and I think it is a must to have a cutie-pie doggie on the porch too.
How about a little ooo la la! This french settee along with some pillows and planters creates a touch of Paris right on your own porch. Of course it helps a lot with an over-hang…but how fabulous does this look…keep your eyes out at Good Will and use your imagination…I am sure you will come up with something as wonderful… if not more! I sure would love a cup of coffee and a magazine in early hours of the day…right here. (One can dream…right?)
Here is another porch that has tons of cottage quaintness. The chippy painted floor…the vintage crate with green soda bottles and flowers…a simple bench and a vintage wicker love seat with pretty linens and pillows…how inviting and friendly can you possibly get and really easy to achieve.
