More Nests.....


Added these nests to the webshop today...they will come with 2oz. of Twigs and Berries mist...one of my favorite scents because it is a woodsy-sweet-tart scent. Limited quantities of course and already half of them are gone from the cottage.
How is your weather? It is still hot hot hot here...high 80's....it IS October isn't it?



















Today was a very productive day for me at The Cottage...I can actually see some progress and I was beginning to get a bit worried. I have had customers asking for my OrangeCaramel Poundcake candles and I finally got some made...they will go on the webshop at the end of the week (I hope).
I have been tagged by Debbie of Debbie's Cozy Cottage (links at right) to tell you seven things about me. Being a fairly honest woman let me tell ya'll you will probably want to skip them :)
but here they are anyway:
1: I am vertically challenged...5' 1" or so. When I need to get something up high I yell out "Tall person !" and someone taller than I am (here that's everyone) comes to help me.
2: I speak five languages fluently ...in my dreams... actually I know a little Spanish from living in Spain as a teenager.
3: Goldie Hawn and I once shared the same occupation.
4: I am a Journeyman (woman) Machinist.
5: We owned a 29' O'Day Sailboat...I get seasick...it was named the "Francie Free" my DH thought that was a cute play on words. I wasn't that impressed.
6: My SweetiePie used to ride submarines, I used to work on them.
7: You remember the headline in one of "those" magazines "Girl Nine has Baby" ? That headline was true, I was the girl. :) :) :)...(well, I warned you).

So how have you been? I've missed you...
My wish for you: Cool and productive days.

Hi Francie,

What cute little nests. I wish that I could say that my day had been so productive...I was supposed to be having a production day in preparation for a show in two weeks...I didn't even get started!

Have a great week

Have I mentioned how beautiful your nests are? No? Shame on me -- they are exquisite. The berry ones are perfect this time of year.
