in the cottage

So there is lots going on inside the cottage, but I don't want to take complete room pics until I am happy with the whole thing and ready to publish them on my website. I have decided to show snippets here and there of the details that are important to me.

One of my best friends owns an art gallery (lucky me!) and I have gotten to know so much about art because of her and I love all of her artists. She and I are both single without kids so we were together almost every single day of the last five years I spent in New Orleans and she knows me so well - as my going away present she gave me this Heidi Lender photograph. It is my fave, though I love all of Heidi's work. It is a girl in the doorway of a trailer with her dog and shotgun! It makes me think of Mississippi (where I was born and raised) and makes me smile every time I see it.

I put it over my bar cart, which is in the kitchen right when you walk in the front door so it is the first thing you see. Thank you, Leslie, for helping to make my little cottage feel like home!
What do you guys think?
