The near-end of Summer. Only a few more nights to spend at the cottage. It's getting chilly at night there, and there's no heat. But then there's no heat in my room at home yet either, so I guess I'll be cold wherever I sleep!
I took a few pictures of some of my favorite things in the cottage last weekend. To the left is a little glass dish where I put all the pretty little stones that I pick up on the beach.

Below is a rattan shelf, I don't know where I picked that up at. It has green and pink Luray cup & saucers with a few more of my dried hydrangea heads in them, and an embroidered linen.

Next is the bureau that's in the sleep-in livingroom. It came out of an old hotel in Strathmere that friends of ours bought many years ago. I have it loaded up with junk. Pictures, postcards, mermaids, a glove box, a hat on a stand and lace on top of the mirror and an embroidered dresser scarf. The lamp I bought at a flea market a few years ago, not old, probably 1980s. It's shaped like 3 calla lilies.
Below is a little mystery cubby hole in the wall of the livingroom, I guess that it was once open to the kitchen, but the door is right next to it, so I don't know why you would need a cubby. But I liked it and saved it when we paneled the room a few years ago. It houses some of my Coral Kingdom mermaids. Two vintage Lefton mermaids are on the wall above them.

Finally is a twinkle light in the corner of the livingroom that I made from some old branches. We have two very much loved trees in our front yard. The street pavers lobbed off big branches from the trees a few years ago, so that they could get their paver down the road. After I threw a tremendous fit (all by myself, no one saw the fabulous fit) over the chopped trees, I grabbed a few of the smaller branches and decided to use them to make this project that I had seen on tv recently. I put the branches in a big terra cotta pot with some cement, and covered the cement with Spanish moss. Then I put regular clear tree lights in the branches. It looks kind of junky here because I have too much stuff around it. But it actually looks very pretty lit up at night.
