Christmas at the Cottage

We had our Antiques on the Lawn Show and Christmas Open House this past weekend. Marci and I worked like crazy little elves to get the cottage ready. I wanted to share a few pics but beware....it's precious!!! :-)

You know...pictures just cannot show you how absolutely GORGEOUS!! the cottage is...if you are "remotely" in our area you really MUST stop by and truly experience the whole house!!!

Now for a few shots of the lawn displays....

And then, of course, our wonderful vendors that joined us...

My MIL volunteered, yes volunteered!!! to put together some Christmas wreaths for us. I gave her our color palette and several items from the cottage and just look at what she came up with!!!

And....we could not have made it through the morning without our Kathye...she is one of our favorite customers/on the spot helper....she is willing to jump in and wrap pretties in tissue, bag gorgeous items or stand on a ladder to retrieve a treasure...Thank You Kathye!!!

Marci and I started today with the transformation of the cottage for the Antiques on the Lawn and Christmas Open House...OH MY!!! We knew it was going to be a tad overwhelming but I did not realize how much we actually have in the cottage. In order to move one piece of furniture you had to move a million items...oh well...we will continue and it will be GORGEOUS by Saturday morning at 9am!!! Details about the show below....
