COLOR ME PINK....All of a sudden, it seems that everywhere I look, I see more and more pink. Now, one of my very favorite colors is being used in home décor and accessories of all kinds.

Mixing the various shades of pink can create a feminine and warm feeling in any room. But a single pink piece in an all white room can capture just as much attention.

This week Cozy Cottage is "bringing out the pink" and joining the other participating boutiques at Make Mine Pink for the Friday Shopping Event. We hope you find something to enhance the beauty of your home or office.

"Office Chic" - March 12th - Friday Shopping Event

We are participating in Make Mine Pink's Friday Shopping Event this week and the theme is one of my favorites - "Office Chic". If you spend hours every day working in your office, it should reflect who you are and what you love to surround yourself with. Last year I redecorated my office in a roses theme. Now everyone who comes in comments on how comfortable and pretty it is. You can do the same thing in your home office, or your office in the workplace. Adding a few pretty touches in the colors that you love will make you feel more relaxed and make you more productive at the same time.
This week Patchouli Rose Designs and Cozy Cottage will be featuring our lovely altered clipboards that are both functional and beautiful. We have several different designs to choose from and hopefully there is one to help make your office very "chic"!

Be sure to stop by all of the other participating boutiques at Make Mine Pink's Friday Shopping Event this week, too.
Happy shopping!

Friday Shopping Event - "A Touch of Whimsy"

Every now and then, it's fun to take a detour from the everyday by adding playful touches to our routines. It doesn't even need to be something outrageous. Sometimes, adding just a "touch o' whimsy" is all it takes to spice things up.

Where could you add a whimsical touch or two to your home?

Please join Cozy Cottage Gifts and Decor and Patchouli Rose Designs as we participate in Make Mine Pink's Friday Shopping Event this week. We will be featuring our altered art clipboards during this special event.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Show and Tell Monday

It's been a busy past few weeks at Cozy Cottage and Patchouli Rose Designs. We've had our share of bad weather which included snow and ice, and resulted in a water pipe that burst under the kitchen sink at the shop........what a mess! But we are warm and dry now and watching eagerly for Spring to arrive. In spite of bad weather and Niagra Falls in the kitchen, I have found time to create a few new things and I wanted to share them with you.

I hope you have a wonderful week and find a special spot of sunshine to warm you each day!

Show and Tell of the shop

Hello's been a long, long time since I've blogged and even longer since I've participated in Show and Tell Monday with Make Mine Pink, but I'm trying to get back in the swing of things. Here is a little slide show I made from pics of my Cozy Cottage Gifts and Decor shop and I thought you might enjoying taking a peek. I'm working on "beautiful creations", getting ready for the Argenta Art Market weekends this spring......also working on getting the shop open again regularly.

I hope you have a wonderful day (especially if it is a holiday from work like it is for me today)!
