If I had a Cottage...

Friends of ours just came back from Norway & posted their pictures on facebook. I was totally in awe of the beauty of that country. One particular picture caught my eye, though. It was this one, of simple ball jar pendant lights.

Are you all thinking what I am?? We could totally DIY this! Problem is, I live in the suburbs and they'd look a little out of place here. But then I got to dreaming.. what if I had a cute little cottage-style country home with a big beautiful backyard? What would I do with it?? Hmm.. You bet these lights would make an appearance..

I'd paint & distress a few adirondack chairs....And put them under a pergola


Fresh flowers growing in pretty white window boxes..


A quaint little cobblestone walkway..

Fresh squeezed lemonade with honey..


A fresh white beachy tablescape..

I'd also whip up a few of these to accent the jar lights..

Hydrangeas & white ceramics..

Big, white hanging flower baskets (like these from the white house!)..

A gorgeous garden to get lost in..


...Anyone want to come join me?? ;)

Ahhh ... beautiful things. I love Scandinavian style too and follow a couple of blogs that I can't read a word of. Pictures are pretty though! ;-) If you love the lights, do it! I live in the suburbs too, but that doesn't stop me from loving cottage style.

Ooh, me please. I'll join you. ;)
I do live in the country, and I have to tell you that I am seriously rethinking my dr chandelier now.
