My name is Courtney and I blog over at French Country Cottage
I am so thrilled to be sharing over here at Suzy’s beautiful blog!
I recently met Suzy in person at High Point Market and she is so sweet!!
I enjoyed visiting with her and the other girls while I was there and am excited to share a little peek around our home and guest cottage with you today.
Since they say the kitchen is the heart of the home – I thought I would start there.
Our home was an abandoned vacation cottage when we found it and it was in much disrepair.
We have worked on it bit by bit, room by room to fix it up and polish up some of that original charm.
The kitchen got a makeover with new counters, the island and double chandeliers.
The open cupboards on each end were also part of the makeover
you can find the before and after here .

Next stop- the living area
The large fireplace and double set of french doors are my favorite part of this room.
The dining room recently got a little more bling with double chandeliers
Our bedroom and bathroom are dressed with reds
and the buffalo check settee and toile wallpaper are favorites of mine.

Out in the guest cottage~ it’s a mix of old and new in construction.
We recently worked on renovating the kitchen
and used an old upper cupboard mixed with new cabinets from Lowes
to keep that charm while updating.
The bathroom got a new look with a vanity that was a $20 buffet that we added a sink
you can read more here.
The fireplace in the living room is flanked by built in shelving
The orchard ladder is a favorite find for this room.
I hope you will stop by sometime and say hello!!
Thank you so much Suzy for having me over for a visit today and letting me share with your readers!!
