Happy July 1st.  I am excited to share some news with all of you.  My Home is the July Cottage Of The Month  http://theoldpaintedcottage.com/pages/cottagemonth_enter.htm

I,  like a lot of you wait anxiously each month for Jennifer to post the next cottage of the month.  I have been doing this for over 8 years since Jennifer put her beautiful, creative vision into the works.  I was always so excited to see the beautiful homes and all the yummy inspiration.  So to actually be the COTM is so exciting and I am so honored and thrilled.

It has been like Christmas in July to have this honor.  Please take a moment if you have not already been awaiting the new COTM  :) and check it out. http://theoldpaintedcottage.com/pages/cotm.htm

Thank you Jennifer for this honor and for your original concept of the Cottage of the Month. Your vision has brought so much inspiration and beauty to all of us.  Thank You for your hard work  to find the right homes and to post them each month.  
  • I am deeply honored to be included with the previous COTM's.  A heart felt thank you.
I would also like to thank Stacey Remiker from Cottage Industry http://cottageindustryinterior.com/ for taking the beautiful pictures of my home.
                                    Kris :)

  42. I am so happy for you and for others who will get to see your lovely home. I had forgotten to check for the July house - I usually am there right on the dot on July 1.

    Jennifer has a booth at my favorite local antique shop. I am heading there tomorrow to buy a vintage window I saw when we were on a bike ride. I obviously couldn't carry it home on my bike.

  43. I just checked out The Old Painted Cottage - you did a great job with your photos. Since I have seen most of your rooms at different times on your blog, my favorite was the photo of the two of you.

    Congratulations!
