In my last post I told you I would tell you how we knew Jensen Cottage was the place we were supposed to stay.
We walked in the back door and turned the corner, and this is the first thing I saw….
A PINK Kitchen Aid mixer! Now how many places are going to have a pink mixer?! If you all know me, you know I <3 pink!
Timothy’s Earl Grey Tea. (Timothy is my hubbies name, and his favorite tea in the whole world is Earl Grey)
Now how funny is that?! I’ve never seen Timothy’s teas before, so we just knew we were supposed to be right there, at that very moment.
After we had our “Aha” moment about being there, we went on in and were amazed at the quaintness of our cottage! I felt like I was stepping back in time, but with wonderful modern amenities.
I just loved this…
Each door still has the old glass door knobs….don’t you wish houses came with these now?…
I love all the wood planked walls and ceilings…it’s given me some inspiration for a room in my house…just trying to get up the nerve to tackle it. :0)
Oh..I have to tell you a funny story that happened while we were there. See the sofa in the picture below? (you can only see the arm of it) The first night we were there, my two boys slept in the same bed….well my oldest woke up to his brother’s head on his stomach, so he decided he’d just sleep on the sofa the rest of the week. The last day we were there, I was cleaning up a little before we left, and looked under the sofa to see if we’d left anything, and discovered it was a sleeper sofa! My poor son had been sleeping on a sofa when he could have turned it into a bed! LOL We got a serious giggle out of that one. He said the sofa was so comfy he didn’t even care. :0)
I wanted to bring this piece home with me….I love the bin pulls, the chippy paint and just the overall feel of this beauty.
I know one thing….this house may have been built in the 20’s, but it sure had wonderful amenities! High end appliances, pottery barn dishes, and any kind of pots and pans you would need to cook a gourmet meal! We did cook there too! We would eat out at a nice restaurant for lunch, while the prices were cheaper, then cook a meal at night while we relaxed in the cottage.
My son thought the picket fence gate was cute…it opened up into the dining room…………he kept closing it the whole time we were there. :0) (my hubby was checking out the artwork above the fireplace in the living room) lol
While my son was lovin’ the picket fence gate, I was lovin’ the lantern light fixture in the dining room. (and there’s those planked ceilings again…swoon!)
Here’s where we spent a LOT of our time………….
Yep, the beach!
