Being a ‘Shopkeeper’  is probably the best thing for me, or for anyone that loves to shop.  You get to shop ‘be the buyer‘ for what you love, play ‘house’ (aka admire it) with it for a little while, play ‘dress up’ (aka fuss with it) in the shop and then send it to a loving forever home.  It is a win-win-win.  

You see…. buying what I love for the shop fits my purpose (and I get to play in yet another space) ~ selling the ‘look’ or ‘vignette’ vs selling just items.  Playing and coordinating with Vintage, and adding Art……the shop really works when you run out of room at home for found treasures ~ and putting a smile on someone’s face feels pretty awesome too.

Make sense?

Mixing and coordinating Art with Vintage finds, well that is….  Icing on the Cake.

Making business….my business, Art & Home.


Stop by Studio 895 in New Ringgold PA ~  you will find something that melts your heart for a sweet little girls room or your laundry space at Shop ‘Cottage Classics’ and with 50+ vendors to visit too!

Refreshed & Restyled with new Vintage and new Art!

ooooooohhhhhh, it is hard to part with these cute little Sunday school chairs and 1920’s little girl slips!…..especially because they have the initial ‘M’ embroidered on each.

But Ok, Ok….share share that’s fair.

Simply the cutest.

and just look at the cute child’s pink ironing board with the iron ~ while scrolling thru.  pitter, patter goes your heart.


Creating Art was the easy part after finding the vintage finds to coordinate ….clothspins, little slips and a laundry line ~ complete with baker’s twine of course.

‘Laundry Day’ pattern will be available soon.  Keep watching the ‘Shop’ tab!

It is always good to refresh & restyle your shop….makin’ it fun for repeat shoppers!  

Just look how cute it looks…..everything worked out perfectly!


…told ya the ironing board was just the cutest….and how about the blue on the chair next to it ~ tug at my heart strings, sigh.

See the stack of baskets? ~ they would be super fun painted for gift giving…just sayin’.


Maybe coordinating is my real hobby??? Coordinating the colors within my shop, the items chosen around a ‘theme’ and the Art to go with it…..just maybe. 

Stop by this month and pick up a new look for your Laundry Room or for your Sweet Little Girl!…..Farmhouse Favorites is up next!   Hope to see you, Happy Shopping!

Happy Spring! 


Coming Up! ~ When a Best Friend Asks, #RecipeCardProject, Cookie Swap Style, and The Baby Room Mural.
