A few years ago I featured designer Sarah Richardson’s home on my blog and it was definitely a reader favorite. Today I’m excited to share her rental cottage with you. But let me warn you – there’s a LOT of eye candy in this charming cottage. Get ready to fill up your Pinterest boards!

I’m on the hunt for new rugs. I’ve changed my kitchen and dining room colors, and am soon to change the living room color. And you know how it goes with decorating – sometimes you change one thing in a room and then you realize something else in the same room needs to be refreshed. And so, I’m looking for new rugs. I’m especially fond of Rifle Paper rugs and William Morris rugs. Part of the reason why I haven’t shared the kitchen or dining room on my blog yet, is because I want to finish the rooms before doing so.

Anyway, here’s an article with recipes for make-ahead tea sandwiches!

And finally – make this yummy-looking strawberry trifles with lemon mascarpone cream this weekend. What a great way to enjoy fresh strawberries. And if you’re on a diet like me, swap out the cream for low-fat vanilla yogurt.
Enjoy your weekend – do something just for yourself!
