at the cottage...

The Cottage's first anniversary celebration is the weekend of October 6-9. I can hardly believe that it's been a year since that blustery day when I met (and fell in love with) the Cottage, Linda, and Ann. You are all invited to the first anniversary party. My friend Debbie will be there showcasing some of her autumnal decorations. And The Cottage will be chockfull of fabulous things.

Today, I worked hard all day sprucing up my room for the celebration...Want to see?

I think I know the answer...


















Tomorrow, I have LOTS of new things to add to the store...including, my friends, NeSts from Deb and Halloween charm bracelets from Melissa! Oh, and a brand new scent from Shelley Kyle. And a few more wonderful things...just you wait!

Oh, please, please can I buy a letter? I just love the B. Is this for sale to your blog pals? If so please let me know, I have a perfect spot in my office for it. Also can't wait for the Nests. Your little spot is absolutely wonderful!

The nests in apothecary jars-- genious! The framed pages and the gorgeous little green apples...I love it all. It's a great mix of "in" and "back then." :)

Oh lucky me! My husband gave me a little cash and told me to buy myself some happy. Tomorrow I'm hoping to get lucky with a lumpling and then a virtual visit to the Cottage!
