Curating an Etsy Gallery for Cottage Life

I was asked by Cottage Life magazine to compile thirty products from Etsy that could help keep your Winter cozy.  And you bet I jumped at the chance.  I browse Etsy for hours when it's not an assignment!   So thrilled to be doing this that I wanted to share and make sure you didn't miss it.  Go check it out at the Cottage Life blog and let me know if you have any favourite items.   

It's getting chilly out there!

So why not warm up with some Fall decorating ideas?

I've rounded up some good inspiration pages for you to have a look at.

House and Home has a whole pile of ideas for displaying warm blankets this Fall & Winter.


I also like to check out my favourite stores for Seasonal inspiration.  One in particular is West Elm - not only do they have great Seasonal products, but they also show them in completed rooms which is always inspiring.


And another great one is Crate and Barrel.


Or, you can always check out one of my guest posts on the Cottage Life website and find out some simple ways to add warmth to your decor.


Well, that's a glimpse into one of the ways I find inspiration.  Let me know if you have any favourite Seasonal sites or sources - I'd love to check them out.  Happy Fall!

My Bio on the Cottage Life Blog

I was so excited to see that I have a Bio on the Cottage Life Blog!  I guess this means I'm a regular contributor, which thrills me.  Not only is "cottageing" an amazing experience in and of itself, it's also really fun to write about.  Especially when I get to add my snide little asides about my brother-in-law.  He can handle it, don't feel sorry for him!  Anyway, it's been a very pleasant experience and to see that they have carved out a little of their cyber space to include me is an honour.  Thanks for reading and keep checking in to find out about the next guest post! For now, you can read about adding warmth to your cottage with decor...
