Marley is a diva decorator....

I guess Marley wanted to get in on my fixing up my yard so she started helping me out by bringing some wonderful pieces...and pieces....and pieces...then climb up and survey her work. Sorry Marley but I need this spot so gotta gather up all your cotton "decorations".

I have been following her for a long time and I think she has more pins and followers than I see if I can contact her and she not think I'm a crazy nut and get her address to send her a gift! She is not the owner of the blog...just a pinner of it. is her pinterest name and her blog is.. check it out!!!

I am almost to 20,000 pins on! Can't believe it. The 20,000 pin I am going to send a small gift to the person I pin, but I won't let myself look at who pinned what for about 50 pins which will be way beyond 20,000 then go back and see who won! !

I have 220 boards (but I need every one to keep track of stuff!) and won't pin anymore for a few hours to get my friends to pin something see if they can be my winner!

Here is a recent pin I did from my friends blog at Apple Rose cottage...Great idea if you get a chance go visit her post and see what she has to say!

I have always wanted a place where I could go and play with my flowers and just feel like I have all I need in one spot! But of course it has to have cottage style!

What is a Cottage heart?

So why did I choose the title Cottage at heart? I can happily admit that it lifts my spirits when I even think of it. I believe the bible says a merry heart doeth good like a medicine. Also says Think on what is true, just and right. We need to believe in God's goodness, that He has plans for us, that HIS ways are higher than ours, that He can and will do abundantly above what we ask or think. So to me, Cottage at heart brings me to a place of stillness, of spending time early in the morning with him, even in the middle of winter seeing my cottage brings me joy...which we know always comes from GOD.

Yes I will admit that I have a Pollyanna look at life...The Glad Game. In everything that looks bad you try to find something to be glad about. Many people make fun of people having a pollyanna outlook but I believe we are commanded to always look for the good, find the blessings that have come from God, might really be hidden. In the movie Pollyanna said one time they got a pair of crutches in the "missionary barrell" and someone asked what in the world could they be glad about that, she said "we were glad that none of us needed them!"
