Ciao, Adios, Au Revoir, Farewell....

As each year comes to an end I tend to reflect on what the previous months have taught me and look forward to what a new year will bring. This new year will definitely be a change for me. Through much prayer and consideration (and evenings of my sweet husband listening to my ramblings) I have decided to bid farewell to The Old Oak Cottage. The time that I have spent at the cottage have been a dream come true for me and it has proved to be the most exhilarating, exhausting fun and back breaking work that I have ever done. Time has become a precious commodity for me right now as I look forward to my oldest son graduating from high school and my youngest son with 2 years of high school left. As most of you bloggers/moms know...we put a lot of pressure on ourselves to be everything to everyone....I do realize that I honestly cannot be everything to everyone but it became aware to me to take a step back and regroup...
Marci will continue with the cottage and has an expansion underway already....Watch for exciting things to be happening on the beautiful property that the cottage sits on. We had discussed earlier in the year of adding some new, beautiful, "different" items to the Cottage inventory so be on the lookout for cool things to come.
I will continue to blog and may even try to "facebook" myself to keep up with you guys!!! I thank each and every one of you for your sweet smile as you entered the cottage and your encouragement throughout the last 2 1/2 years!!!
Many blessings to you,

12 Days of Christmas Specials

Starting December 9th, the cottage will feature a special "super sale" item each day until December 24th.
That is 12 Cottage business days of super specials! We will also be having a drawing for prizes each day - each customer will be a winner (as all our customers are). Plus, each $10 you spend will give you an additional chance to trade in your prize, and try again for that day's "Grand Prize".

If you are on our email list, check each morning for the announcement of that days' super sale item. OR check our facebook page each day, or call, or just stop by. The special of the day may be that perfect last minute gift for someone . . . or for yourself!
Stop in to visit, draw for a prize and have a cup of coffee.
The Cottage Chicks,
Marci & Mandy
