You Know Who Is Making Pillows

The dancing orange pillows add just the splash of color in the shop.

This blue and white floral pattern is young and perky!

I really like the quality of these bird prints that came in this week.

February is a short month at Anchor Cottage. We will be opened February 11 through February 18 from 10 to 5. For appointments e-mail me at
Otherwise, I will be home making pillows and painting furniture. I will keep you posted as I create new one of a kind items for the shop. Have a great weekend!

Love Notes

Love the quirky Giraffe and the Cow looking back.

A pair of Love Birds and new quilts on a gray winter day.

All the way from Renick West Virginia.

Post cards to send some love to the ones who care.

A dozen chocolate chip cookies wrapped up in this towel shows a lot of love:-)

Love Is All You Need.

I would sing this to my sons when they were small and I would change the u to an o when I sang!!

Group photo. They are just adorable.

A heart built around love has many layers. Either that or there is enough kindling here to start a fire;-)

All you need is LOVE LOVE, LOVE is all you need.

New Merchandise @ Anchor Cottage

These critters are coming in from Renick West Virginia and bringing 10 of their buddies with them.

New pajamas arrived so I thought I'd make the bed all fresh in new green.

I like these nightshirts, the sleeves  roll up and button.

Fun batik tablecloths. The Leopard print ceramic garden stools are cool.

Working in some of my "Found" items from Bay City.

Finally snowed last night, here in the Leelanau Peninsula. All the schools were closed. Had the shop all to myself so I moved my props around:-)

The Bay City Haul!

Unloaded the haul from the Suburban into the house for inventory and a  clean & polish. This sweet little Volkswagen engine hood will be the awning over the door of my new workshop my little hubby is building.

Anchors, ship's lanterns, 5ft ship's wheel and a huge brass prop.

What will be the hot color this season? Yellow or Orange?

Bits & pieces.

More bits & pieces.

Lord Nelson hunt platter and jug.

This is where the bits & pieces go to for a clean & polish. 

Love the little glass inserts. They were missing their lids so I bought them for vases. Lovely!
