watch this space!

So this was my front "porch" at the beginning of the summer. 

Boring, right?

I had a whole bunch of plans to transform it based on ideas I'd gotten while reading some of my favorite blogs. After all, this was going to be my forever cottage so I wanted to really fix it up cute and put my own mark on it.

And then, in a stunning blow, we learned that this won't be our forever place after all. Oh, we're not moving out right away but by this time next year I wouldn't be surprised if Jasper's Cottage had a brand new address. It's taken me a couple of months to be able to think these thoughts without a few tears but I'm ok with it now.

But even though it was now impractical to make any changes to the actual exterior of the house, I still wanted to un-bore-ify this front entrance...without spending any money or making holes in the walls or make any changes that couldn't be put back to the original immediately. Sigh.

Does that pique your interest? (I had to look that up to make sure I was using the correct word )

Tune in tomorrow (same cottage time, same cottage channel) to see if I was up to the challenge!


  1. It's a great little porch space, I look forward to seeing what you do with it!
    Wow, you're moving! We were thinking of moving due to Kyran's route changing at work but he decided the commute wasn't that bad at all so we're staying. He is trying to get into a higher position at work tho so if that happened we would possibly have to move. But we're renters so it's not a big deal.

    Have a wonderful day!

  2. First of all, Jonni, thanks so much for faithfully stopping by my blog these past couple months. I haven't been posting much, but when I do, you are always faithful to pop by. That means a lot!

    Next, I love the word, un-bore-ify. I think you invented that word, and it is, indeed, grand. Mr. Webster needs that in his dictionary!

    Also, I'm so sorry circumstances in your life have changed and that you will have to move from the home you love. But I have no doubt that your next cottage will benefit from your warm, creative touch and that it will soon be home.



Pull up a chair on the porch, have some lemonade and leave your comment in my mailbox. Thanks for visiting my little cottage!
