THE FOREVER COTTAGE.......IKEA Decorates The Hampton's

Sometimes all you need is Small and Simple....
Which is what we found at this
Adorable Cottage in Sag Harbor New York
called....
"The Forever Cottage"
Never knowing what to expect when you rent
something Online we were pleasantly
Surprised when we opened this door.
And Who doesn't love an old Fashioned
Screen Door...
A Fireplace is always a welcoming
Sight...
This tiny three room Cottage was the
cutest thing I have ever seen.....
Perfect for a short little getaway.....
Simply Furnished.....
But unmistakably Ikea!!
Who says Ikea only does dorm rooms????
A perfect Kitchen....
if you enjoy cooking when you go to the
Beach...
Not overly done with a beach theme...
Just some simple touches
Here and There...
Very comfy chairs in the
Living Area...
Original hard wood floors.....
with great area rugs...
A futon to curl up and read a book....
A place to hang your towels from the
Beach....

A little welcome bottle of
Wine...
Those odd old little touches
that give an old house character....
This belonged on a little mini cabinet on the side
of the fireplace...
Ikea blue and white striped bedding.....
Ikea striped towels.....
Which were wonderfully soft!!

What's a Beach house without a
Porch Swing...
And of course a Picnic Table!!
And yes we did drive 3 hours in that thing we call
a Car....We had rented a car from Budget but when
we got out to the airpot to pick it up there was a
2 hour wait in line....So the Smart car was
called in to action....
And it did a mighty fine job of getting us to the
Hampton's and Back!
We Love the Smart Car!!
And this is what we saw all around Sag Harbor....
And yes...this is an un-touched photo
using my Nikon D200 camera....
Doesn't it look like a painting...

What a cute place to vacation in! I guess it just goes to show you don't have to spend a fortune to get a cute space. I really had to look closely at the photo of the flower to believe it wasn't a painting. Amazing!

Sue that little cottage is adorable! I could enjoy living in such a place for sure! Love Love the photo of the sunflower, it does look like a painting! You should make a canvas print of it!

It reminds of a grownups playhouse, and it is cute, cute, cute! So is your car, Sue!

And that photo is very cool. How did it do this? Neat!

I loved that cottage - so cute and perfect. Sometimes simple is beautiful - you know what I mean?

And that car - well if you say so.

The flower should be entered into a photo contest.

Glad you are home.

Looks like a charming little place, as you say, for a weekend get-away.

That is the cutest little cottage, just big enough for a couple enjoying the beach.
The wild sunflowers that Kansas is known for are finally in boom...doesn't seem nearly as many as other years, though.
Have a great week, Sue.

Hey, lady!

You asked me a question which I had every intention answering and got sidetracked.

My hand is doing better. It hurts if I overuse it. It was fractured in an odd place, a couple of places, in a fall last Sept and took months to heal. She just grabbed it and crunched it in a handshake. Episcopalians are no match for Baptists! LOL. It was a young girl who was very sweet and friendly and just gave too firm a handshake. She had been playing violin at a special service at a friend's church, and I think she had an adrenalin rush. But it was swollen and sore for quite some time. Finally feels better! I have small bones, and her hand enveloped mine and hit at just the right spot to crunch it. Basically, it reinsured it. I gave it lots of time to heal.
