Craving Spring On The Peninsula

New scents in the shop this May Day!

"elizabethW", from San Francisco CA, is hand crafted, small batch apothecary. Smells so fresh and feels so light on your hands. Customer service gets a five star review, from me!

Green, blue and white, Mad Cap Cottage and hand sewn pillows!

Just thinking, sandy-beachy-sunny days with late evening sunsets reflecting the colors of the day. Packing for cottage life. 

Tasseled pouches, my shower cap, of course, and some of elizabethW in my bag. 

A pretty cottage bed to rest your city head! Always smells so good when you get into the peninsula. 

When you get up and have had your walk and coffee, come down to Anchor Cottage to shop our new products for the season. Hand picked with you in mind. 

This nightshirt puts a big smile on my face! Who could have thought it? Giraffes on water skies! Ha Ha!!

This wonderfully, silky soft quilt, from Pine Cone Hill, would make the best wedding gift. 

Looking back, into my favorite area of the shop. What a mess! All good, just the same, special orders of customers, a small chair to be recovered in Mad Cap Cottage fabric for the display I am working on. And, the red Radio Flyer wagon, an original, made in Chicago, that has been with me for fifteen years. I have two of them that I use to move props around, in the store. 

Customers can park behind the shop, across from the library, and come in, through the backdoor, when there is no parking out front. Makes it very convenient, when schlepping purchases out to the vehicle, instead of crossing M-22!  

Slow, but sure, the linen line is coming in. The price point is decent, and the way the fabric takes the dye is beautiful. The colors are really fabulous.

We are, just now, tipping the scales into spring. It is always a welcomed time on the peninsula. The ski is blue, the wildflowers carpet the earth and the sun shines.
