Your Cottage Library

Elegant vintage books bundled and ready for you...
Old book groupings are a hot commodity in my cottage shop. I scour old book stores, thrift shops and antique malls in search of a variety of colors and themes. Assorted ribbons, vintage keys, tags and beach decor adorn the tops of the bundles for added charm. If you have a specific color or look in mind, I am happy to create a custom bundle for you. Just send me a message through my Swede13 Cottage shop on Etsy. You may also click on each image below for a direct link. 
Thanks so much for being here today...

It's a blue and white thing...

Well I finally got caught up with all the salvaged goodies waiting patiently for a "new" shabby paint job in my garage...and now it's time to head out to Renninger's Extravaganza antique fair again this weekend. I can hardly wait, I've go that itch. The weather has been chilly here in Florida, just perfect for a day scrounging through endless booths of dusty rusty treasures. Gets my heart racing.
It's the simple pleasures...

A New Year...A Fresh Start

With a new year we are presented with a clean slate...maybe it's time for change. Maybe it's time to try something new. Time to take that chance. Time to listen to your heart and that dreamer in your head...

“Do whatever brings you to life, then. Follow your own fascinations, obsessions, and compulsions. Trust them. Create whatever causes a revolution in your heart.”
~ Elizabeth Gilbert 

“Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.”
~ Julia Child

"Always go with your passions. Never ask yourself if it's realistic or not."
~ Unknown

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover."
~ Mark Twain

“What would you do if you weren’t afraid?”
~ Sheryl Sandberg

"Ask yourself if what you are doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow."
~ Unknown

“And now we welcome the new year. Full of things that have never been.”
~ Rainer Maria Rilke
