outside of pink cottage...

Last Saturday I showed you the inside of my pink craft studio on Karen's blog party " Where Bloggers Create".  There were 450 bloggers who signed up...I am not even half way through visiting...there were some amazing rooms!!! 

so now I will show you the outside...

my cottage is on the side of the house in the back yard, I can't wait untill all the plants fill in, I love that overgrown look...

love birdbaths, this one is soooooo cheap, Lowes, it was only $28.00...

I love pink iceburg roses...

my sweet welcome sign my daughter made for me...

another birdbath...I think I have an addiction...

the window boxes are filling out...

a new rose bush I just planted, it has the best name...Falling in Love...

and here is a front view, I think I would like some shutters, I keep looking at yard sales and flea marts but its hard to find four.  Thank you for all the sweet comments you left me last week, I truley appreciate them.
Please go by and visit Beverly, I think I forgot to sign up for Pink Saturday, with the kids out of school, the days get mixed up and before I know it, it is


  1. Oh Stefanie! Your studio is as beautiful on the outside as it is on the inside!
    I'm more green (with envy) than your grass! hehe

  2. Hi Stefanie... Oh I love your sweet pink getaway!! The Roses the Lavender, Mmmm I love when they bloom together!
    Have a Great Weekend!

  3. Hi Stefanie,

    I love your sweet cottage and garden.
    The roses are gorgeous, and I think the Falling in Love is such an appropriate name for the pretty pale pink one.
    It must be a delight to walk down the path, to your cottage retreat.

    Happy weekend

  7. You lucky girl...the outside of the cottage is just as wonderful as the inside. I love the swing! I can just imagine stepping out of the cottage and relaxing on the swing looking at all the beautiful flowers and watching all of the birds.
    Have fun with that space.

  8. OOOOH!! I want it more now!!! Just lovely!

  17. Oh Stefanie....I want to come and sit and have tea on that swing and then play in your studio! I love the bird bath. Is is concrete or resin? What a great find!


  18. It is so lovely, Stefanie! There is a feeling of tranquility. We have the same birdbath - yes, we got it at Lowe's!


  19. Oh how I would love to have your little cottage. It's so sweet and it's like a grown up girl's playhouse.

    I love the birdbaths and the flowers. Everything is so lovely.


  20. How lovely, Stefanie and peaceful . . . I could sit out there on the swing and blog on my laptop while I listen to the bird chirping . . . .

    What a fab way to spend a Pink Saturday!!


  21. I love your studio inside and out! Happy Pink Saturday!

  22. Hi Stefanie, it's perfect, the perfect color, the perfect sign, the perfect garden, you are one lucky girlfriend. I am still working on the "a's" in where bloggers create, so it's going to be awhile before I get to your post. Maybe I should just skip down to you and see what I am missing. I also think I may need a trip to Lowes.........beautiful post today, love the new roses. Happy Pink Saturday, Char

  23. Stephanie - I'll say it again . . . I LOVE IT! I am so stinkin' jealous! It is as fun on the outside as it is on the inside! You are a very lucky girl! (And one can NEVER have too many birdbaths . . . )
    :) Karen

  26. Hi Stefanie,
    Your cottage is just lovely. You're so lucky to have one to craft in. My little cottage is used for storage. I will make it nice this summer but still use it for storage :(
    Thanks for the nice comments on my white/burlap slipcover. I hope you do try to make was very rewarding and not that hard. Let me know if you need any help!

  27. What a lovely outside. Love it. I think I could spend hours there and in the little swing off to the side.
