Cottage Angel

I am starting to get ready to head back up north to the cottage. We spent this weekend planning out what needs to be done in the cottage and out in the garden. Most of the shrubs survived the winter and the deer snacking on them. However it is always an adventure with nature up there, a buck marked his territory by scraping the bark off a new lilac, I have a groundhog digging at the base of the house and a bird nest in a wreath that should come down. At least there are no skunks so far this year.

Inside things are just fine…. I like to think this little angel is wishing for our return...

  

Those are silver dollars in the vase.




I love the patina on the mirror frame.





To me her nose looks a little smashed but that is ok it adds to her charm. Maybe she is counting the days to our return, I know I am.

What a lovely display of silver dollars and your pretty angel. They seem to go together quiet well along with the frame. A very nice vignette..
Have a great day,
Shirley

Laura, the silver dollars are so pretty. We have deer too and they prune my roses for me. It is Wild Kingdom I tell you. Never a dull moment at our yellow house. hugs, olive

Lucky you having a cottage! I would love that too! Although... I know it means also a lot of work as you describe it! It is nice though, isn't it? The angel is lovely - I believe the "smashed" nose adds to it's charm and uniqueness. Have a good time! Christa

I wanted to let you know that I am featuring you on Share Your Cup Thursday today. Loved your Bunnykins! I love Silver Dollar plants. I have one area in my garden that they are coming up all over. Their purple blooms have such a cottage feel! Guess I need to save some of the Silver Dollars to decorate with. Yours look wonderful.
Hugs,

This is a truly lovely vignette!

I love her little angel-chipped nose. Sweet.

Don't you adore the lunaria? I was first given seeds about 25 years ago. The lady who gave them to me was a dear and historic elderly woman. Now every year her plants come up, put out their little pink blossoms, then turn into pearly moons. I always think of her.

Love,

Sharon

Ohh! You call them 'silver dollars'? It's called 'honesty' in the UK, although I have no idea why.

Laura,
I love your little cottage angel. Do you know that I used to collect angels? There used to be a little shop in my town that sold the most unique angels, and I would go in there all the time. This one looks so pretty next to the silver dollars.
