My pink cottage
looks the same this year as in these past photos..
except I added a pink tree & a large
pink painted wood sled to the front porch

pink wreath with pink lights

an antique ironing board

I found this old sled at a flea market for a few dollars
& painted it pink
my wood, plaster, and ceramic Santa's.. fun to make!

I made the above "Sunbonnet girl" stocking in 1982
the year I moved into my cottage
I used them last year..

I made these Carnival stockings using photos

Thanks Margaret, I found the pink garlands & wreath (all have pink lights too) at a close out store for only $4.99 each. They also had lavender, mint green, powder blue, and yellow...
The pink reminds me of my daughter Nikki that passed away..she wore a pink helmet because of seizures.
My middle daughter makes fun of my outdoor pink and calls it the "cotton candy cottage"..
Happy Holidays! ~Mary~

Hi Mary:
You always go all out and I love it!!!
I wish I were your neighbor so I could come over and relax in your cottage. It would be so much fun for me!!!
You have a great weekend, my Friend
love & hugs

Carole, I did not go all out this year. Didn't decorate inside. Only the pink stuff outside.
I'd LOVE it if your were my neighbor we would have so much fun!
Hugs ~Mary~

Mary, what beautiful decorations. I wish I had half of your talent. I barely took out a couple of trees and my kitchen looks bare without all the gingerbreads. I also love the pink wreath, but down here in the south, you don't find neat things like that. I did spray paint a wreath one year, black for Halloween and now they have them in the stores---go figure. If they had pink heat resistant paint, I would end up painting all my greenery pink and white. Have a Blessed and Joyous Christmas. Love, Hugs, and Prayers, Pat
