Happy New Year from The Old Oak Cottage!!!

As much as I adore Christmas and all the decorations it is kind of fun to take them down and rearrange, isn't it? That's what has been done at the Cottage. We sold the cute little fake fireplace (my mom bought it and it looks great inside her fireplace all lit up) so out to the garage and shed to hunt down something cutie patootie to fill up this space. Don't you just love the little rocker?
The kitchen was fun!!! Nothing is in the same spot as before!!! You should have seen the looked like a bomb had gone off in there for a while. I just love the little blue roll top desk.
Marci had a load of ironstone. I can't believe how fabulous it looks grouped together!!

The nice little music cabinet has been moved into the dining room. Did you know it has sheets of music inside. The music is from an old hymnal. Gotta love that!!!

The music cabinet used to sit on top of this shabby little table. It is perfect for a little corner in someones breakfast room.

The wash stand is the new coffee bar. Unless, of course, you need it in your home somewhere. Then it will be back out to the shed for us!!!
Marci found the cute little dresser. When we were moving it in I discovered the middle mirror has a lever on it and you can tip the mirror so that you can see yourself in full view standing up. How cool it that??
We bought the beautiful armoire from some friends of mine. Isn't it gorgeous!!!!

Marci went north to visit family and friends for the holidays. I stayed around here and had a great time with my family. We will reopen Friday, January 2nd and look forward to a fun and fabulous 2009. We will have our first "Antiques on the Lawn" sale in February. Keep in touch for details!!!

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

A couple of weeks ago we had the most beautiful snow in Huffman. Since we are in Southeast Texas, northeast of Houston....this does not happen but maybe once or twice in a lifetime. The area was so beautiful that I had to share pictures of the cottage with you.....Isn't it the cutest little house???? Don't you just love the old oak tree?

A Cottage Christmas

This is our Cottage Christmas Tree. Since it is now December 20 the tree is starting to look a little bare. Everything on the tree of course is for sale. There are the cutest little crystal chandeliers ornaments that I love. I need to get you some close up pictures to see those. All the glitter ornaments really dolled it up...Loving this tree!!!
