Imagine my delight when I turned the corner and there she sat, looking so pleasantly at me! I fell in love instantly! Can you tell? From the top of her tulle crown shade to the bottom of her white tiered ruffled skirt. She is 100% Southern Belle - even wearing gloves with one hand over her heart as if to say "Oh My!". How sweet and adorable she is! Well, I paid too much for her, hence the price, but there was no decision to be made, it just happened - really fast. No buyer's remorse here. She can just sit at the cottage until someone else falls in love with her and I ship her away. Thanks for stopping by and hope y'all have a great weekend!!

Yes, I am doing it. This is my first "real" sale in my shop. I just have WAY too much stuff. The cottage is stuffed full and my closets runneth over. So, I have listed 1/3 of the items in my shop, about 100, as a Buy 2 Get 1 Free Sale. Some of the items have reduced prices already and, of course, I will reimburse shipping overages. Click on any of the pics to go to the sale section. There are bedspreads, linens, housewares, lavender sachets and pillows, of course. These pics are a sampling of the items on clearance...

I found these vintage draperies a while back. Wonderfully vibrant flowers on a white background. Each panel is pleated at the top and 84" long. Very gently used or not used at all. There are three pair and they are bargain priced at $45 per pair. Please see my shop for details. Aren't they just so cheery!!

Just got home from a two day trip to the 1842 Inn in Macon Georgia. It is an antebellum mansion turned into a B&B. Just the most gorgeous antiques, rugs, floors, walls, fireplaces... that I have ever seen! The original house was built in 1842 (hence the name) by John Gresham (lawyer, cotton merchant and mayor of Macon). The service and hospitality was the best we have ever experienced, a true glimpse into days gone by and southern hospitality. Everything from breakfast in our room, in the parlor or garden, or just where ever we wanted it served and whatever time we wanted it served to the hot choc chip cookies delivered with a pot of decaf coffee after dinner. Take a few minutes and look at the virtual tour and do pop in if you are in Macon, they would love to show you around and give you a bit of history!!

Can you imagine wearing one of these dresses? My waist just would not fit, but I guess that was what the girdle was for! Never wore one, a little too young for that, but I remember my mom had one! I found these three patterns and have them listed in my shop. I love the graphics...
