Kristy, her husband and two adorable daughters live in this wonderful Florida cottage by the water. I first found Starfish Cottage when I saw Kristy had posted a recipe for one of my favorite dishes…Cuban Pork. Boy, was it delicious!
Kristy and her family moved from Atlanta to escape the fast paced lifestyle and I believe this quote from her blog says it all.
“This is the story of…
a cottage, but not just ANY cottage, the BEST kind of cottage…a cottage by the sea!
a dream, thirty-something years in the making…
a family seeking a slower, simpler life…
a woman balancing family, work, personal pursuits…
a passion for decorating, cooking, gardening, and the coastal lifestyle…
This is the story of Starfish Cottage! ”
I hope you enjoy the tour and the link to join the party is at the bottom of this post.

Thanks for hosting and sharing this great beach cottage. I am green with envy! It has long been a dream to own a little cottage by the sea, but for now, I am landlocked. But I certainly do enjoy looking and dreaming.
Kristy's home is beautiful! Magazine worthy.
Thank you for sharing it Sherry and for hosting this lovely party! Vanna

This is another great party, Sherry! I'm lovin' all the Fall decor that is starting to "flood" in — it's my favorite.
Another beautiful home. Where do you come up with these? I love it! Lisa~
