Fluffing With Some Southern Cotton

Who doesn't like a little bit of change in our home decor? I'm always lovin' a new look...it feels like you have a brand new NEST! Now Mr.CC thinks I'm a little crazy because I go around changing things up all the time, but I think all hubbies do this...I guess it's their job. Since I'm a true THRIFTY GAL, I don't spend too much moola when to comes to my decorating and that's a good thing. Here are the changes that I have made on my mantel...I did some fluffing and came up with this!
                                              Hope all of y'all have a wonderful weekend!
                                                                      See ya soon,
                                                                           Linda
                                   Now all SOUTHERN homes need a little COTTON!
                                                My $2 TARGET birdie...isn't he cute?
                                                             FREE ALABAMA COTTON!
                                                        My thrifty OLD BOTTLES from
                                                              an Auburn antique shop!
Thanks for looking at my THRIFTY decor!

I'm having a GIVEAWAY...enter it HERE!

Join me over at these parties for a fun time!

I wish I could just go pick some cotton. The white around here is SNOW! Love the old bottles and the cute little bird. I might have to hop on over to Target and get one of those!

You know... while I change a few things around in my house, the mantel always seems to stay the same.. I think it's time for a REDO! Thank you for the kick in the cotton! BTW, I love the cotton branches in the bottles... I think I'm going to redecorate tomorrow! Just beautiful..

Amy Kinser said...

I really love cotton plants. I would love to have access to some myself. I have driven by cotton fields before and want to sneak over and pick some but am afraid to get caught. Lovely...

Donna said...

Linda,
I want to grow some cotton! There are fields of it around the countryside here in the summer. I grew some years ago and stuffed a pillow I made. I think I still have the pillow somewhere! Love me some cotton :)
Hugs,
Donna

Vicki said...

My local antique store had some cotton for sale recently! Looks great in those old bottles.

Lynn said...

Love the cotton. Such a nice touch. The old bottles are great too ... a nice combination of the cold and the cozy. I'm your linky neighbor at French Country Cottage. Nice to "meet" you! Have a nice weekend.

I'm a new follower! Just found you, and LOVE your blog! I love this entry, and have always had a fondness for birds. I have picked several up along the way, and they are all over my house. I love the way that you put shells with pinecones. My husband and I travel to Sanibel twice a year to collect, and I am always looking for ways to display them. Can't wait to see what's next. ox Lisa

Linda said...

Love that bird!

Beth said...

What a lovely and creative idea! I'm always changing little things, too; it gives my house such a pick-me-up during these winter months. Have a wonderful week-end.

Maria said...

Very cute Linda!! I would much rather have that around than all the snow we have!!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Hi Linda, I love the look of the cotton in your bottles. I think you may have started a new decorating trend. I could have my MIL in Alabama mail me some cotton. Just a thought.
Hugs,
Sherry

Jane@Little House of Projects said...

Thanks for your comments on my eggs-tremely easy centerpiece. I love your cotton twigs. They are so simple but so beautiful! I'm a new follower :)

Tina said...

I have really enjoyed reading your blog.
I love what you've done with the cotton. I live in S. Arkansas and when I travel to the central part of the state I always stop and pick some cotton.
I visited my good friend in Opelika a few months ago. On our way down to the beach in Florida we stopped to pick some cotton there too! You've given me some ideas!
Thank you for sharing! You have a new follower!

Debra@Common Ground said...

Those cotton bolls and branches are really perfect for the bottles and mantle. What a great idea, they look wonderful! Thanks Linda, for linking up with VIF!

Debra

Oh, I just love that Linda! It really looks very wintery but the sweet birdie gives it that hint of the hope of Spring. :-) Thanks so much for sharing this at Inspiration Friday this week!

Melody said...

Tennessee Cotton girl here at Mel's Cabin...picked some up about 36 years ago and it's been sitting in a glass covered bowl ever since, and still looks the same. Cotton never goes out of style in modern or country...it's a great decorating piece. Mel

I wish I could find some Alabama cotton up here in the snowy north...it is so pretty! Make it a good week.
