There isn't really any way to show you all the moving and shuffling and pushing and cramming I've been doing. The cottage shop is only two large rooms and because it is an old Victorian cottage there isn't a lot of wall space. Plenty of windows and doors and fireplaces :) . My office and work space is in the kitchen and then I do have a bit of storage space but I have to make do with the two rooms for the goodies.
I love love love lots of silk flowers and am especially fond of the hanging wisteria. Wisteria is such a romantic flower and just screams Old South....and roses. Oh my love the roses. So while it is time to get ready for fall I won't put away the wisteria or the roses. I am so tickled that it's my cottage and I can do what I want to :) .
Soooo I got out some fall and started. My usual way is to haul everything out and set it sorta where I think I want it. I try to get the stuff out and then once that is done I'll start "tweaking". I know I've got a lot of "tweaking" to do but it will get there. I start in the front room because that is the first thing you see and also the one that is more country.
The stove display was a piece I bought for my daughter but she has no room for it in her new house...so off to the cottage! I had to move two large heavy cubby shelves to put it against that wall and I hadn't really gotten it set up yet and it was time to change it. I think my jelly jar candles and pie candles will look really cute on there.
Soon the next room will get a once over and I'll share those pictures with you when I get to it...but it will be a while yet.
Right now the cottage smells of orange, apple, spices and cinnamon...mmmmm mmmm mmmm. Our computer guru came to fix my computer and he told my SweetiePie that he would be happy to work on my side of the cottage any time it smelled so good. I never get tired of hearing that and it's how the cottage came to be named. Even my returning customers always remark on how wonderful the little shop smells. It makes it a very happy place.
So that's my Monday show and tell. Thanks for stopping by...and remember if you leave a comment you will be entered in the August giveaway.
My wish for you: May you always have things just the way YOU want them. (())
