What is Cottage Style...I just learned and it's on Lollishops!

From the lollishops blog...
Cottage Style embraces the time-worn; encourages and evokes nostalgia. Items that have been neglected or forgotten, are given a new emphasis. What used to be defined as "Shabby Chic" has evolved into a completely different shift of focus. Furniture is no longer purposed to be "shabby" it is shabby.
Chipped paint, white-washed, stained, tarnished, antiqued textures are complimented with soft shades of petal pink, custard yellow, minty green and baby blue.
The OLD is mixed in with the NEW.
I have discovered that lovers of Cottage Style develop their own, personal flavor to highlight their signature designs--
It could be hand glittered doves...
Dusty pearls...
Velvet ribbon...
Paper Flowers...
Rhinestones...
Buttons...
China Dolls...
Sepia tone portraits...


Some fabulous examples of COTTAGE STYLE you can find on Lollishops.com!

*my lollipop hair clips are in the mosaic...yeah:))) They are also on Lollishops!

Happy Learning! Heather
