August! People are starting to complain about how summer is over. Nope, there’s still 2 solid months! It’s beautiful and warm and it’s NOT over. The first day of fall is September 22. Bold color and strawberries make this month’s color of the month scream happy summer!
I’ve been playing around with surface design and color to bring you some new items and products. They are available if you click here on my Society6 shop. You can purchase everything from: mugs, pillows, zippered pouches, blankets, rugs, travel mugs, phone and laptop covers and cases, shower curtains, tote bags, etc! The selection is quite vast and it’s been fun for me to create a different set of items for my customers.
Yes! April! Spring is now official! The cottage is back open, I haven’t been yet but soon, soon! I can’t wait for some quiet island time, bird watching, and starting the garden there, and the garden here at home for that matter. Plenty to do in the meantime. April is a busy month traditionally with family activity, work, and the commencement of rummage sale season. Spring is a great time to dig deep as we renew and refresh from the winter. With my upcoming birthday, giving me my last year before I hit the next decade, and going into my 10th year in business I’m digging extra deep these days. SO, I give you red this month, an emotionally intense charged color.
I’m SUPER excited to share this with you! Check out the Fall 2015 issue of Vintage Holiday Magazine! It’s a special issue from the editors of Cottages and Bungalows on newsstands NOW through Nov 10!
