Cosmos are one of the easiest things to grow in the flower garden. (see my 3 easiest flowers to grow guide here) They don’t love a ton of water, they don’t like a ton of fertilizer, they just bloom. The only issue I have with them is they need a lot of support. Which, don’t […]
I’m sitting at the coffee shop having an afternoon tea watching it absolutely downpour outside. I’m typing this recipe about a month later than I had planned but the truth is everything that I am able to do creatively is wrapped up at the farmhouse right now. Half of my cooking utensils are boxed up […]
I didn’t really plan on moving the first week of cookbook club but we did and we’re finally getting settled into the temporary rental house. I have a small kitchen and my essential pots and pans. I feel like as we progress on we can get into more of a natural rhythm but we will […]
I have been collecting cookbooks since Joe and I first got married (thirteen years this June!). I come from a long line of skilled cooks yet, I never really developed a passion for it until I was living on my own and had my very first solo home kitchen. Back in the days where Joe […]
These Christmas traditions are what make all the hustle and bustle of this holiday season worth it to me. We were never real tree people until Otto was born (funny how kids do that for ya) and ever since then we decided welp, time for a real tree. It was a happy decision not only […]
I have not necessarily been a scrooge this year when it comes to decorating our farmhouse for the holidays, but more exhausted Santa. We went all out for Christmas this year at The Found Cottage and between that and pending renovations in the home, I just didn’t feel like hauling out all the bins of […]
Just one more thing checked off the Christmas list, Ottos meeting with Santa Claus. This year Otto is all in on believing in Santa and he was adamant that he had to get Santa his list. When my friend Sarah announced she was doing mini sessions with Santa I signed us up thinking it would […]
When my grandma was moving to her condo she gifted me a stack of her Country Women Christmas books from the 90’s and they are FULL of amazing church cookbook style recipes. Some of them are scary jello’s with floating fruits in them but other recipes like these no bake potato chip chocolate bites are […]
I don’t really care to think back to how long ago high school was for me. It sometimes feels like just yesterday while a million years ago all at once. Maybe I’m thinking more about high school because The Bachelor franchise feels so fixated on it this season. (can we be done with that please? […]
One of my favorite quotes from The Devil Wears Prada is when Miranda unenthusiastically mutters “Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” However… Florals for fall or fall floral foliage albeit not ground breaking is a little against the grain from the large cable knit sweaters we see this season. In line with Mirandas sentiment I have not […]
I think that shopping for fall clothing might be my favorite season to shop for. I love all the plaids, sweaters and crisper weather. Although, fall in Michigan has been very reminiscent of summer time. The temperatures are slowly starting to fall though, and we have our first threat of frost in the forecast. […]
The majority of my David Austin Roses have not even completed their first season and the results have been spectacular. With a little bit of tender loving care each week they have flourished and bloomed and I have not had one single failure from my 2021 order. The only ones that have struggled are the […]
