As I look out the window of the store at yet ANOTHER dreary day, I need to stay focused on the positive and remember that our yard is so green and full of blossoming flowers!
We have lots of flowers here in the store too, in all shapes and forms.
Some on china:
Some on chairs:
Some on pins:
Some on pretty teacups:
Some on Mother’s Day baskets:
And in pretty “Claire’s” basket – (Claire is the store mascot)…
Well, you get the idea… We LOVE flowers at Lisa’s Cottage!
Hey, speaking of Mother’s Day (it’s May 8th…write it DOWN…LOL!), we are getting some cute things in the store in the next few weeks that will be PERFECT for your Mother (and Mothers-in-law!). ALSO, we will be giving out a free gift with minimum $25 purchase beginning Saturday, April 9th (while they last). Mention you read about it in the blog! Check back for updates as we get them in…
Our ribbon class filled up quickly last time so if you want to reserve a spot in our next class, Ria will be teaching a beginners ribbon flower class on Thursday morning (9 am) on April 28th. Cost of the class is $15 + 5 materials fee. You will make 3 ribbon flowers and Ria will find out how many of you want to take an advanced class to make the flower necklace shown below.
If there is enough interest, we’ll book an advanced class. The advanced class would cover how to make a necklace using the technique learned in the beginner’s class. The finished product looks something like this:
Call the store at 619-466-2600 to prepay your spot if you want to assure that you’ll get in on the beginner’s class (Remember, if you commit to take the class, it removes a spot for someone else, so the class fees are non-refundable).
Ria will also be teaching a class on decoupage, the craft of applying paper with an adhesive sealer to decorate all kinds of items. We’ll try to post photos of an example of what you’ll be making for the class. Again, the cost is $15 + $5 materials fee. THAT class will be Thursday, May 19th at 9 am.
For those of you who can’t make the classes during the week and would like to attend, please send me an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will teach a Saturday class if there is enough interest.
Some cute things I also wanted to share with you at Lisa’s Cottage…check this out:
THE most adorable chocolate lab was patiently waiting for their owner, Lore (one of our fav customers!) to finish her purchase and get BACK in the car. Sooooo cute! Just had to snap a picture!
Or perhaps they were trying to strain to see “How much is that doggy in the window?” These are cute, handmade dogs that can be custom-made for your pet!
Also, we have some cute, cute things that we just brought in:
CHECK OUT this adorable PINK Royal Typewriter!
Who’s going to take home this cute little shabby chic desk?
We’ve got some beautiful hats that would look great on a hatstand on your dresser!
Oh, by the way, we finally had enough sunny weather to get our sign up on the building. Here is Rich surveying his wife Jurene’s and his granddaughter’s Jenny’s work! They did a great job!
And finally, I hope to soon be bringing in my vintage tools, some beautiful pots to use in your garden and some vintage trains and comics. It should be a FUN spring!
