Sneak Peek

Our Antiques on the Lawn Show is coming up November 14 and 15. Marci picked up a little dresser at the auction and decided after she got it back to the cottage that she REALLY hated it. She said..."It was such a good price I just bought it, but we can donate it to charity". She was scheduled for her trip to Vermont so I said...give me some time and let's see how it turns out. is a little peek at the result...I think it is cutie patootie and it will be out at our show in November.

Smells of Autumn

Nothing smells better than warm sugar cookies ...pumpkin pie.....cinnamon....cloves....AAAHHH the smells of Autumn. I love nothing more than baking and having the fabulous scent "waft" through the house. But.....with the cottage, my other job at the dentist, two teenage boys and a hubby that needs attention every once in a while, who has time to bake???!!!! Luckily!!!! We have the wonderful scents of fall right here at the cottage!!! We received our order of fall scents from Tyler Candles!!!

Come by and sniff all you want!!!! Scents include Mulled Cider, Cinnabuns, Cuddle, Homecoming, Pumpkin Spice, Mulberry Moments and Sour Cream Coffee Cake....MMMM...makes one want to go home and bake....I may just have to make time!!!!

Reminder!!! Antiques on the Lawn Show is coming up and will be here before you know it. It will be November 14 and 15. We will be closed the week leading up to the show so that we will have time to transform the cottage into a Christmas Wonderland!!! We hope you will join us!!

We're Back! and Looking Forward

We returned from The Round Top Antique Week at LaBahia late Saturday night Oct 3rd. Unfortunately, Saturday brought torrential rains most of the day. We were fortunate to have some die hard shoppers until about 2 pm. Our guys were there to offer their blood, sweat and muscles for loading the booth onto the trailer. Marci and I were so very nervous about our last few pieces of furniture getting wet and ruining the finishes on them....never fear!!!

The guys backed up that big ole trailer right into the tent!!! Everything was loaded safely and pretty dry!!! We scrambled a little with running water underfoot but Marci and I jumped into high gear, well, high gear for us!!....and moved what we needed to dry land.

We had a great show and we are looking forward to the Spring show.

We are all moved back into the Cottage and are working towards our Antiques on the Lawn show November 14 and 15. We will transform the Cottage into our own little Christmas wonderland and have our Christmas Open House that weekend. We hope you will join us for a great weekend to kick off the holidays. Be looking for hints of what's to come!!

Have a great weekend...Hey, southeast Texas is getting a cold front today!!! Yeah!!!
