Welcome to the Cottage!

It is so nice to have you here with us. Join us for this Cottage home tour so you can see where the magic happens.

Here is where we welcome our family and friends to all of our events, parties and teas. It is the first thing you notice when you approach the cottage so we try to really make it represent the Cottage and all that we represent here.

The foyer is full of our favorite things.  Our faith our

We want this part of the house to welcome all who enter and we want them to feel at home.

It is important to us that the house feel like home and that those who come feel His peace here. It has been a place of healing and hope for many and we really love that.

Living Room 

The living room is where we gather. It is where we have Rosevine meetings and play games. It is where we watch old movies and ust enjoy one another. We keep it comfortable. White paint and couches are warmed up by dark wood and frames. The frames hold family military photos over our old toy box now transformed into a table. The old armoir a gift from a dear friend. Dried hydrangea flowers fill an old bike basket and keep summer close as the seasons change.

Dining Room

The dining room is an ever changing place that changes with the seasons and holidays. We have a lot of fun with this room. I have collected dishes since I was in Jr high so this has really come in handy with the birth of the Rosevine Cottage. We have used them to make the meals look extra special, sometimes combining them to make interesting looks.

Sleeping Beauty Room

Although the girls wanted Cimmerrrera (Cinderella) wallpaper, mom and I went for Sleeping Beauty for the soft blues and yellows in this wallpaper. We pared it with crisp white bedding and dreamy mosquito netting and chippy white wicker to make this little girls room just right.

Dove Room

Another fun room. We really loved working on this room. A soft purple room with white bedding and mosquito netting covering the beds like mist in the early mornings here at the cottage. We took some corkscrew willow branches and affixed doves to them for a soft and beautiful look. They are sprayed with an adhesive and lightly glittered to capture the sparkle in the overhead spotlights.

Adventure Room 

The adventure room was so much fun to create. It is Indiana Jones for little boys but is not cheesy or cartoony. It is filled with warmth and fun at every turn.

Fairy Tale Room

This room is lots of fun and a nod to lots of fairytales. From Cinderella and Elsa, the Swan Princess, and even Robin Hood, The Little Mermaid, some Narnia and a little non fairytale Nancy Drew. So much fun! 

A crisp white bed from a 2nd hand shop that just is so beautiful. Crisp white ruffly linens add that special touch. Furry arm pillows allow for a perfect place to curl up with a good book or to get some writing done in a cozy place.  Even the dog agrees! She is comfy and cozy curled up at the end of the bed.  

A beautiful mask collection hangs from a willow branch over the bed. 
Beauty & The Beast's rose beneath the glass and Cinderella's dress make this the perfect space to dream of all a girl can dream. 

Original Kitchen 1

The kitchen is the heart of the home. No matter how you decorate the rest of the house the kitchen seems to be where people gather.  Where people talk and visit and laughter rings out.
Our original kitchen was so small for what we needed. Mr. Cottage added these cabinets to hold our dishes but still the counter space was just too small for all of our canning, cooking, drying, preserving, baking, etc. We added this small island and we kept our baking ingredients and bowls in it but it just seemed we were elbow to elbow all the time when we were in the kitchen.

Kitchen Remodel


When we decided to redo the kitchen we took all of that in mind. We changed the placement of the appliances to make them more convenient and a lot more cabinet space. We opted for a huge island that is removable if need be but it adds tons of space for all of our projects that are constantly going on. The space in front of the window is now a huge window seat with cabinets below and above the window and in the corner is a coffee station for our mugs, coffee stuff and tea stuff. It has been wonderful. We are still working on the kitchen and need to finish with things like drawer pulls, door knobs and the window seat cushion but we are really happy how it is turning out!


The deck is a well used space. We love to cook out and sit out here and visit, listen to music and eat our meals. It just is a beautiful place to enjoy the beauty of the Cottage gardens.
