Daisy Cottage Revisited

It was so good to get back by to see Kim at Daisy Cottage again. She's been off to see Savannah and so our schedules didn't quite coincide the way we'd hoped last week and we only had time for coffee and a short visit on Friday before I headed off to Clearwater for the weekend.
Daisy Cottage's front porch is such a cozy spot.


And I had to take a pic of the pretty aqua blue table Kim picked up recently, after we saw it on our shopping outing last time at the consignment store. It looks perfect in her livingroom!
Kim's oh-so-pretty vintage vanity that her hubby put in for her. I adore this damask shower curtain and the whole bathroom feel is so cozy.
Center hall table
And of course, sweet Maggie Mae, who is just the most adorable pup. Pick me up please.
Kim's lovely office spot.
And I covet her soup tureen collection. She has the perfect place to display these beauties.
I had to cuddle a little while with Maggie. That girl loves to be held.
In her mama's lap...Kim and Maggie. It was way too short, but we have yet another get-together planned next week when I will go back to Florida one more week. Fingers crossed that nothing hinders our schedules this time. Two whole days of shopping and thrifting, it doesn't get any better than that! Bye for now, Kim and Maggie.
Also had the chance to catch up with an old college friend, Becky. There are 3 of us who have maintained contact for 30 years with each other. Sweet friend! We met her and her hubby for dinner one night, so it was a fun evening of talking about old times over dinner at the Cracker Barrel.

Hi Rhoda :)

Thank you so much for praying for me. We should know Friday if the whole thing is feasible and then go from there.

It looks like you had another wonderful week. Plant City looks really cute. Great shopping too! Daisy Cottage always looks so wonderful and Kim really is a sweetheart. Oh and to cuddle with Miss Maggie! I'm so envious!! :)

Have a great night.
Hugs,

Thanks for the peek into other little nooks and crannies at Daisy Cottage. Did Kim "paint" her laptop lid yellow?? It sure looks like it. . . too funny.

Maggie looks like she is just ready to come home with you Rhoda!!

Blessings,

Sher
