Around the front door of my house. Fall plants and pumpkins have created an inviting vignette before you step into the house. I love all the yellows, oranges and purples that really depict the coming of the autum
This crazy pumpkin face was created with the kit from round top, for those of us that don't have the time to carve a pumpkin this sure was quick. I topped it out with a bow of raffia around the stem. The pumpkin is nestled in a pot of springei fern.
My passion for the shops comes out when I help people decorate their homes. I started the original Cottage Garden 12 years ago. It was totally home and garden. Then with one bowl of pearl bracelets on the counter started the birth of Cottage Garden II. Now I enjoy not only helping customers decorate but also embellish themselves with the jewelry, clothing and other personal items at the shop.
I love animals, I am my own Humane Society. We have many cats, 4 dogs and an aviary of birds, mainly little finches.
I have a great love for things vintage. Love going to flea markets and having the thrill of the hunt.
Many customers have said that the owner (me) has a great sense of finding the most unusual things. I do love the whimsical aspect of my shop.
