It's Alive? It's Alive!

I have always said that I am all thumbs when it comes to gardening...Unfortunately though, they are not the green kind...Hee, hee, hee. However, once in a long, long, long while a little plant graces me with its beauty way past the short lifespan any plant is doom to have under my care.

I love buying poinsettias for Christmas and always get them as soon as I begin my Christmas decorating in late November, early December. I care for them, pamper them and if I'm really lucky they'll last at least until Christmas Day.
Well it is almost February and this little one is still around...Yay! It's Alive!
Hmmm, I wonder if....
...this little guy had something to do with it. Maybe he's reading all about how to care for poinsettias and decided to give me a helping hand :-)

Thank you for stopping by.
Wishing you all a fantabulous day.

Hugs and Kisses,

Golden Vignette

Hi Everyone!
Today I wanted to share with you a new little vignette I put together. 

My inspiration was this...
My latest thrift store find.
Isn't it beautiful? I still can believe the treasures one can find at a thrift store...Anyway, when I first bought it I thought of painting it white and "shabbitizing" it, but now I'm not too sure...
This is the vignette I put together with the gold wing as my inspiration. I think all the gold accents work well together. 
So I think that in this particular vignette the wing in gold works best, but I would love it in white too.... I don't know what to do. What do you think? Leave it alone or paint it? 
Here's a few more pictures of the vignette.
Thank you for stopping by for a visit.
I always enjoy your company.
Wishing you all a beautiful day.
Oh, and a special "thank you" on behalf of my daughter and me to all our sweet blogging friends for your kind birthday wishes. She had a "awesome birthday"...her words.
Hugs and Kisses,

New Little Corner Vignette

Hi Everyone!
I am still on a Spring Cleaning Frenzy...And sometimes, most often than not, all that cleaning leads to some re-arranging and re-decorating too.

Today I wanted to share with you a new little corner I created in our petite living room.
There use to be a big comfy chair there, but in order to fit our Christmas tree it had to go downstairs in our family room. Loved how it looked downstairs so I decided to keep it there. However after the Christmas tree came down I was left with a bare corner so....
I went shopping around our cottage and this is what I came up with.
A quaint little corner dedicated especially to our beautiful daughter.
And for those of you who guessed a birthday on my last post...Yay! You were right. This month is all about the number 18 because this month is our daughter's birthday. Oh, but it's not any ordinary birthday, it's her Golden Birthday! Which according to kids today is the birthday when one turns the same number of years as their actual birthday date. This Friday the 18th our baby girl will be turning 18 :-) Can't believe it! They grow up way too fast.

Thank you all for stopping by for a visit and for always, always, always, brightening my day with your super sweet and kind comments.

Wishing you a wonderful day.

Hugs and Kisses,

Brought to you by the number 18...

This month is all about the number 18 here at A Petite Cottage.
I've been busy with my spring cleaning...I know I'm a little early but when I was putting all my Christmas decorations away I thought it would be a perfect time to give our petite living a good cleaning...beginning with our fireplace.
Gave it a good cleaning, inside and out...You won't believe how sore I am from all the scrubbing.
Anyway, this is how I decided to decorate the mantel...simple and clean.
Oh, and if you are wondering why this month is all about the number 18...Well, you'll just have to come back for another visit to find out...Hee, hee, hee.

Wishing everyone a wonderful day.
Hugs and Kisses,
