Part 3 of a Gardeners Cottage

Ah, thank you all  for stopping by from Jenny's to visit my gardeners cottage.  It just made me so warm and fuzzy inside, better than hot cocoa on a new winter's day!  I have a few more pictures to share with you today and then perhaps tomorrow I will run a little contest as a thank you for all your comments.  Although I rarely enter, because I never win, I absolutely LOVE giving my projects away.  Right Jenny??  teeeheeee

I gathered these sconces at McMaster and Storm in Greenville Ohio.  If you haven't seen their cute little notions you must stop by and check out their store, .  I just knew when I saw them I had to have them and they have been in my artist studio for a few years (not the girls from McMaster and Storm, the sconces), safely tucked away for the perfect project!
A picture of the south side of the cottage. 
I love the full wall of doors on the back of my cottage, a little privacy please.  I grabbed these doors in Brookville from an old brick farmhouse, well all except the skinny door.  My girlfriend Lisa gave it to me.  She called it clutter!  Hmmph!  And the window I HAD to have, HAD to have when I saw it in a shop on Route 68 between Springfield and Yellow Springs.  It has been just laying around for two lonely years and now it finally has a home!  I can not wait for the hot weather to break so I can finally paint all the "nekkid" wood as my husband Vandy likes to call it!

I will definitely blog more tomorrow about the loft and show you some really cool problem solving ideas for getting up in the cute lil thing!  Anyway, see the stairs?  See the window, look beside the window and under the stairs to the brown door (this is like a scavenger hunt, lol)  Okay there is the palest of pink area on the brown door that I want to put a quote on (getting the picture?).  So this is where the contest comes into play.  Submit your quotes and the one I pick will get one of the coolest gifts of all time.  Oh, okay, maybe not as cool as a HGTV house or a Vern makeover, but this is really cool.  So, come back tomorrow and I will have some more pictures for you, DO NOT forget your quotes! 

Have a great day!
