One of the Many Reasons I Love My Little Cottage

One of the reasons I love my little cottage shop is because no matter what time of year it is or how dreary the day I can get a wonderful happy burst of color...and I do love color. I also love flowers, quality "forever" flowers. You can always have something beautiful around you no matter what. So, dreary day no matter...I looked around my shop and it made me smile !
Wait...what's that? OHHHH you want to know who won the teacup !!! Well I am very pleased to tell you that Angie...The Slipcover Diva will be getting a little package in a few days. I'm very pleased her number came up because I won something from her a few months ago...a beautifully slipcovered stool. I love it and I hope she will love her "winnings" too.

For all of you I want to thank you for your comments and for stopping by ... ya'll mean a lot to me, old friends and new.

My wish for you: May old friends surround you and new ones abound!

I won! I won! I can't believe it! I never win anything! Thank you, I can't wait to get my teacup. Now where will I put it? Let me go looking around the house for just the perfect spot.

Love those flowers, Francie!! (What kind of fertilizer are you using? :) They do add some cozy cheer during this chilly season! They are so pretty on this rainy afternoon ~ they just lit up my screen!

Hi Francie, Love that pink amaryllis. And all the pretty flowers. My amaryllis turned out to be a gorgeous deep red. Have a great day! xo Lynn
