Spring Changes

When I opened the shop a year ago, I was hoping it would give me more time to paint....boy was I wrong! My loyal customers wanted to see more of my handpainting on vintage finds, so I decided to set up a painting area in my shop. It is in the corner of my blue room, right in front of the spectacular windows. All my paints, brushes and painting "stuff" is at the ready when it is slow in the shop. I can now paint and serve customers at the same time...and I have gotten alot done! I even sold a sign right off the table before I had even finished it. I love the new set up, and will have some pictures by the end of the week for all to see. Thanks all and have a great day!

Anniversary Celebration!

March 13, 2009 The Painted Cottage celebrated its 1 Year in business anniversary. We had a celebration with store specials, refreshments and a raffle for a spring cleaning basket won by Jane S. The weather was great and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves!
