cottage sisters...a home tour

Grab yourself something cool to drink and settle in a while...
My sister in law Shelly was kind enough to let me snap a few dozen photos of her adorable cottage to share with you all during my anniversary week...


This is the fence leading up to her front door...


As you can see she loves red...and polka dots...and vintage...




Her front porch is just full of whimsical treasures...


and plenty of potted goodness...


This was just a plain white bench...
she painted and added the cherries, too cute...


You say you love vintage tablecloths...well she's the girl for you.  She can spot them anywhere she goes, whether its the Rosebowl swap meet or her local thriftstore...


Our hostess, with a sneak peak at what's inside...

I can get in more trouble with this girl...she is also my best friend and such a blessing...can't imagine what my life would be like without her.

You're gonna love her, too.

Don't forget about my giveaway here...

I'll be posting Shelly's home all week, so come on back tomorrow.

I've linked up to It's a Very Cherry World for Rednesday...
A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday...
Heart and Home for Wednesday Gratitude ...

I don't know Shelley, but I sure do like her! She needs to start a blog, that's for sure. I love the little bench, the polka dot pots and the little red ladder. Oh, and of course the tablecloth. Tell Shelley that she's awesome!
Happy REDnesday!

Oh, I hope I remember to come back!! I love the old tableclothes! AND I REALLY DO STRONGLY FEEL that those boots were MADE for ME. I needed some and had to settle for aqua blue and white ones.....but those on the bench were really meant for me..........ahhhhhh....woe!
