It’s Sunday…so it must be time for The Cottage of the Week here at The Cottage Market. It’s a little moment in time where we can sit back…put our feet up…enjoy a cup of something yummy and enjoy some beautiful decor. I am very excited that we are going to be knocking on the door of… Southern Hospitality Adventures in Decorating, Thrifting, Cooking & Gardening
First things first! I would love to introduce Rhoda…not that she needs an introduction : ) On her fabulous blog she shares all kinds of decorating adventures, tips, makeovers, vintage and thrifty finds upcycled creations, yummy recipes and everything in between…this blog is what I call a Full Service Place!!! : )
The one thing that I love about her style is that she shows you that you can do great things…awesome things…on a limited budget. She also has so much to share and everyone that stops by each day learns so much and not only about decorating and cooking. In this beautiful blog Rhoda shares many matters of the heart.
A must read is a post called Life is Not a Magazine Cover…it is truly inspiring.
Here is our star of the day…meet Rhoda!
She moved into the house of her dreams…a fixer upper split level dream cottage just one year ago and let me say… WOW…that says it all! You’ll see.
Our Cottage Tour starts on the porch. This is something that Rhoda has been yearning for for some time…a screened porch and it is a beauty. Don’t you just adore those gorgeous painted floors.
Can you feel the breeze!
The attention to detail will amaze you.
Everywhere you look…you can see that Rhoda incorporates her thrifty and vintage finds perfectly!
I strongly suggest that you hop over to this gorgeous sun porch and sit a spell…maybe with a tall glass of Sweet Tea and see all the other fabulous features…here is just a little preview…isn’t this the sweetest little family heirloom and there is just so much more to see…I know Rhonda will meet you there.
