  3. Ahhhhhhh this is so fun to see what you have picked out. Oh my gosh I love the awning. Those are going to be fabulous!!!! Love the Fairfax fabrics and the rug from Ballards ahhh so gorgeous. Ron you have such great style and I know you are going to make this cottage look like it came right out of a southern charm magazine. Congrats on another successful school year. Happy Summer Vacation my friend. Enjoy every day of your break. Keep the idea's coming. The creating of this lovely cottage is like a favorite TV show for me. I cannot wait for the next show/post to appear!!!! It is fun to see what you are finding for the new cottage. Oh and before I close that chandy is going to be gorgeous too. Great style and great cottage to re love. Woo Hoo Ron I am just so darn excited for you and J.

    Love all your choices! Cant wait to see this cottage come together as I know it will be beautiful. BTW....I went out to Ballard to look at the rug you chose and was wondering if you went with the tan or gray? I really loved the gray color.

    Also, the rug pictured with the ottomans you featured looks stunning too. Could you give us a bigger picture of the rug and information. Thanks...Happy Shopping!

  7. This is like a great big party for you!

  8. Lovely! I know you're having a ball!
