Hi Monica! you got a very nice and stylish house. This cottage looks so incredible! Your blog is an inspiration for everybody especially for me who is looking for a wonderful cottage design. This is awesome Monica, great job there!

Luv this!!

The roofing trim was brilliantly done. It's simple, and yet clean. From the outside, the house looks cool because of this. I was stunned by the chocolate chip cake. It made me remember the pains of my diet. Nonetheless, I like the indoor plants.

OHMYGOSH..... I know Monica is your BEST friend but I had no idea what kindred spirits you are..... You two need to start a consulting business and show others how to have such style..... or maybe professional shoppers.... oh yes.... I think you would be a a very marketable team.... what a pair of talented friends..

What a neat space, love all her cottage touches, very pretty!!


Ahhh....Monica's a girl after my own heart! No empty spaces! Oh how I love a FULL counter! Everything's just lovely.



Who is Monica? Is she your sister? Her house is beautiful just like yours Tina but I can not figure out if she is your sister or a good friend. Thanks so much for sharing the beautiful pics of both of your homes. I am trying to mimic everything you do....already have the beautiful red and white quilt at the foot of my bed like yours Tina. For those who dont know the quilt is from JCpenneys. Have a wonderful Blessed weekend everybody!!


Monica's home is wonderful!

Such a cute home. I just love all your pics. I recently found an apothecary jar like the one you have in one of your pictures! I was so excited! I filled it with fall gourds. I hope you can tell me what you think. Check it out at


I love the red bread sign too... I have one hanging in my kitchen. :-) I can't even remember where I got it I have had it for years. Great pics! :-)


Darling...Thanks for sharing.

Oh I Love It~ Everything is Great, but really envy the little island table with the small dresser with drawers... who would have thought to stick plates in it like that~ So Creative!

Everything looks so Inviting, just want to sit & have a cup of tea.... gave me some ideas for my Blaaahhh Kitchen!


Monica's home looks as sweet as yours. Love the pics of the kiddos in their Halloween costumes. Tell Monica thanks for letting you be her reporter today!


I love it. I'd like to see more too :).


Fabulous! Thanks Tina & Monica!! :)

Kelly~Rose Vine Cottage

Her house is so cute and it reminds me of yours, you two must shop/decorate together. I have a question that I've been wondering and since someone else asked in another comment above, did you take the pic's of your sisters house off of your blog or am I just not seeing them somewhere?? I love to look at your house and hers occasionally for inspiration.


if only i could stay in Monica's kitchen for a lllllong-llllong---LLLong time!


Cute, cute, cute. Can't wait to see more!


Love it. Thanks for sharing Monica's house. I look forward to seeing more.

Debbie Hooper

Sooo many cute ideas! My colors, I can't wait to see more!! Loved it!!


Tina Lee,

Love it - you did a fantastic job....can't
wait for you to do the rest of Monica's

Heart Cha!



Adorable! You have a lot in common. :)

Tina I was wondering, is there a way to look back at old posts on your blog? I haven't been able to figure that out. I enjoy the Flikr pictures but would love to see the actual posts themselves.

You inspire me daily!
