a vintage heart

From time to time, I fantasize about living in a country cottage filled with faded pastel linens and white painted furniture. Louise is living the very life I've dreamed about and I can now enjoy it vicariously through her blog, Louise Loves Pin Board.

Louise lives in Builth Wells, Wales, UK and is a dealer of vintage textiles as well as having her own line of vintage-inspired printed cottons. Seriously Shabby Chic! She has an on-line shop, selling everything from fabric covered books to lampshades to vintage quilt covered clothes hangers - everything you need for your own idyllic shabby cottage.

Her blog is all about life at her country home, Stable Cottage. There are pictures galore and you can read about raising guinea fowl, the blooming of the crocuses in the spring, and some travels to nearby towns that have all the charm you'd expect of the Welch countryside. There's a tutorial on making a hydrangea wreath and the photos of her home have a wealth of decorating inspiration.

If you love country living and all things vintage, you're sure to enjoy this lovely blog.
