Setting up the Garden area





We have been busily working in the courtyard of the new store. It has really been fun and we are seeing it change before our eyes. The House is wonderful and full of character. We will do some painting inside after the venders move everything out. For now we are doing yard work and preparing a cozy place to enjoy coffee or tea with friends or maybe a tea party- shower, or group meeting . I am also learning how to make and serve various tea menus along with all the other things that go along with running a new business. We are shooting for opening the middle of September. Hope to see many of you soon.

My daughters visited Monticello about two weeks ago and were able to see your beautiful display. They were vacationing in Oregon (from Maryland) and I asked them to stop in. I'm so glad they did - they took some wonderful photos and bought some special goodies from you and others as gifts for me.
I received a lovely strawberry, a postcard and a sweet "tiny crown" from your creations. You can peek at them if you like by visiting here:

I'm so glad that I (vicariously through my girls) got to see your lovely things at Monticello before you move out of there.

I wish you all the best in your new shop ~ maybe someday I'll be able to venture across the country and visit Colby Cottage!
