Welcome to Week 54 of The Cowgirl Up! Link Party!

Welcome to Week 54
The Cowgirl Up! 
Link Party!
1 Party, 5 Blogs  

Our guest host this week is Anne of White Lace Cottage

Hello I am Anne from White lace cottage and I am thrilled that Linsey asked me to host this weeks Cowgirl Up party!

It is such an honor as I adore her style too!

If you know me then you know how much I love anything old and chippy.
I am always on the hunt to find fun and unique pieces for my home.
My style is a little bit of Cottage, a little bit farmhouse and a little bit French Nordic.
All together you get Romantic farmhouse cottage French Nordic.

Yes it's a bit eclectic.

But somehow it all works.


I love using architectural pieces old shutters,doors,windows ladders anything that catches my eye.

Another thing I love to do is to re purpose old treasures.


This old ice cream machine was transformed with some paint to add a bit of character.

Pretty with flowers or old wood bread boards.
I love to surround myself with things that I love.

My favorite places to find treasures are thrift stores and antique shops.

This is what I recently came across.

These vintage pieces with original paint are hard to come by.
Especially when the color is so unique.
Even the barkcloth is sweet on this piece.

I have lots of white in my home.
It's fun to add a bit of color here and there.

I had a hall table here previously.
But thought this would be perfect in this spot.


This shelf I found years ago.
I just can't part with it.
Made from scraps of vintage wood.

I've been playing around with this shelf trying to fix it just right.
I think I finally got the look I was going for.
A sweet chair to sit on.

Or a sweet table....

Thank you so much for letting me share my home with you all!
