" Fall 2014" Chrisy's Cottage

Hello every one,,, happy Fall...I am loving this beautiful dresser set with over sized knobs...Just beautiful.
Lot's of new Fall arrivals for you to come and see..The shop is bursting at the seams, and new product arriving daily.....
Don't forget to think of us for your Halloween needs...Lot's of party ideas..
New Boho Gypsy tribal bags.. bring on the color...
Were ever we live, we want a peaceful home filled with things we find beautiful..Be it a birds nest or a opulent chandelier..Down sizing to a smaller home and still making use of everything I love has been a challenge these last 3 years...But being able to live by the beach has given the tranquil, peace of mind I've been searching for all my life...I know I belong here... I like the idea you can take something tiny and seemingly insignificant , and it can become something Great!! I gather what I like and put it together   and it works.. I don't feel like I have to stay in one style.. My look has a little bit of everything I love...There is something unique in the way rustic & refined elements work together.They just highlight each other beautifully...It's Fall, so go for a walk and brighten up rooms with the best from the great outdoors.... creating a nature inspired vignette is the perfect way to appreciate Mother nature....Sorry it's been so long between blogs, But I'm feeling better every day, and would love to see you... Hugs Chrisy

" Rediscovery" Finding yourself....

There's a movement going on... Have you noticed it? it's a return to the 60's and 70's with a twist.Non drug induced LOL It's a healthier aspect on life... I like to call it my" natural high" People are finding their inner selves via observing the world around them. be it our beautiful earth, the heavens,yoga, each other, and yes the internet....I am a Pinterest junkie. Maybe after having such a close brush with death.  I'm just finding inner peace in my old age. I like to think I've acquired some wisdom along the way....During my recovery my sister Gena and I have spent long lazy days at the beach with our art supplies. Though we are not very talent artist, creating imperfections has been magical to our souls.....I've learned to not look back. Your not going that way anyway ......I choose Life and I plan on living it to a ripe old age...
Thus my palette I've chosen for my vignette  at the Shop this month....
Navy and white, like the ocean, So cool and crisp, Hope this inspires you to dig in your closet for those favorite old blue jeans and a walk on the beach.....Hugs Chrisy

" Chrisy's Cottage" Does'nt let a little brain tumor get her down.......

My Sister Gena is staying with me for the next month.To help with recuperating.. She came up with this great card idea for my earring... Don't you Love it!!!!
" Who would of thought the removal of a brain tumor the size of a ping pong ball would spark high levels of creativity.... Oh, It could be the steroids they put me on.LOL...Many of you may be wondering why it's been so long since my last post.....Well here it is in a nut shell.........I started having headaches last Nov. only when I bent over...by February they were so bad they would wake me up from a sound sleep in the middle of the night. Of course I thought it was my eyes, because of previous eye surgeries ( maculer traction with hole formation) ...But after seeing a Neurologist my MRI came back with a tumor the size of a ping pong ball right inside the top of my head putting extreme pressure on my brain..." Ouch!!!" It was a tricky surgery because of all the major veins wrapped around this thing.........So to University of San Francisco ( Dr. Michael Mc  Dermott )   My new Hero.... for  surgery 2 weeks ago......Good news, It was benign and they were able to get it all with out any paralysis on my left side of my body....So Thankful...... It's what  happened after that amazes me... It's like my brain woke up and I had to fill that now empty hole with more info. I woke up dreaming of Elephants. I don't know if it was the Dali Lama paying me a visit or the shops   I had been into the day before surgery. But I woke up decorating my Shop in my mind....I have been busy with my 3 Sisters help this past week.. ( Yes, they all came to my rescue love my Family) and my Sweet Hubbie...to WOW!!! you yet again. " Marie Antoinette Boho Chic" I'm calling this Look.... I was a little shaky taking these pics. " They have me on lot's of drugs ( Just a headband strip of hair shaved ear to ear, so I have a very large comb over thing I do to it..LOL  . LOve that scarves and headbands are so in.....I'm feeling better every day. Thank You for all your prayer chains I was on. and Tami and Tracy's Church and Laurie & Ruth for supplying my family with a week of homemade meals right to the house...I am so grateful to be alive and will never take Life for granted again.....I am so blessed, with so many caring Friends and family who have rallied to my side in this time of need.. I love you all...Hug and Love often .. It's really what counts most... Chrisy
