The Old Painted Cottage of the Month

I have long been a reader and fan of Jennifer from The Old Painted Cottage.

I am sure you are familiar with her amazing and unique home.

So you can only imagine how excited I was when she asked me to be the July “Cottage of the Month”.


Stop on by to visit the tour and you can also see all of the homes she has featured in the past.

Hope you are all getting ready for a great week!

  2. Hi Laura!
    I discovered your blog through Cottage of the Month – what a beautiful feature! I grew up in Orange Cty NY, on Orange Lake and went to Wallkill Schools until high school when we moved to Bergen Cty NJ. 35 years later and I STILL miss “the country” !!!

    Your home is beautiful – thank you for sharing it with us and giving me a small of touch of my “old home”….

  8. You have such a beautiful home. I am so very impressed with how you use old things and they never look scary and dirty. Every time I try to buy vintage things I can’t help but imagine old, long-dead people watching me suspiciously as I handle their belongings. I have to admit I spent a long time looking at the close-ups to see what in the world a person would put in an old wooden crate. Very inspiring!

  9. Omigosh Laura this is so exciting! Not sure how I missed this as I am always going over there to see the new cottage. I guess I’ve been busier than I thought! So happy for you and not at all surprised that you were chosen. I’ve said it before, you are my absolute favorite blog, favorite decor, favorite style hands down. Congrats!

  10. Laura:
    Just wanted to say that your home is beautiful. I enjoyed looking at it so much and congratulations for being selected for COTM!
    I have always loved decorating since I was a kid and it is my favorite pastime. You certainly have a flair for classic and vintage combined. Have a nice day!
