We've had a little facelift...

No, not me. (I wish.) Last week we closed up for a few days and reopened with a renewed and refreshed Cottage Caboodle. See for yourself...


This is a clock Rob just finished making. Cute, huh?


Our jewelry section has changed and expanded with lots of new merchandise!

And our "cow" section has changed to house kitchen items.

New fish and art in our "outdoor" section...
We love the new arrangement; it seems that the store is more open and visible than before. Stay tuned for more new merchandise. And come in and take a look!

Cool Cat....er, Dog

Whew! The Labor Day weekend was so hectic and busy I'm just now getting caught up. But I have to share one highlight of the weekend. This gentleman brought his dog to the shop last year....and returned this weekend to say "hi." And this time I managed to snap a photo:

And just so you can get the full picture, here's a closeup:

All decked out in some cool shades and a leather Harley suit. Cute!

Thanks to our recent cooler weather in Eureka Springs, fall is in the air! It's the perfect time to get in our new fall and holiday candles from Swan Creek. Just look at these yummy scents:
Warm cinnamon buns
Spiced orange cinnamon
Pumpkin spice
Pumpkin caramel drizzle
Holiday citrus and clove
Citrus and sage
Cinnamon hazelnut latte
Christmas cheer
Butter rum bundt

Swan Creek votive candles are all soy and super scented with an 18 to 22 hour burn time. Yum!

Long time no see...

I am so utterly bad at keeping up with this blog. This winter has been very busy, thanks to the superb weather we've been having. Plus, I've been scouring the country for new items for the store. But...I'm back and I have to share some of our new merchandise. (And there's more coming in every day!)

Art! Whimsical giclees, art panels, small postcard prints, you name it. Come in to see the full array.

Ohh la la, indeed. Lots more Parisian goodies...

Blackboards with shelves and hooks. Oversized, and ready to make a statement on your wall.

Lovely canes and walking sticks, beautifully crrafted from many different types of wood by artisans in Texas.

Full sized rattan mannequins, perfect for your bedroom, craft room, or any room!

Huge wooden "gear" clock. (Doesn't it look great next to the framed Union Jack poster?)

Glass plates with four different angel paintings....lovely.

Fishing fly dinnerware is back in stock! I've been waiting a year for this to arrive, so if you want some, now is the time to come in.

This beautiful metal fleur de lys cross is almost 40" tall.

I've found a new candle supplier -- Lakewood Candle Company -- and it's based in my old neighborhood in Dallas. How could I resist? They make such lovely scents and packaging. The candles above are in apothecary jars, with scents such as Firely and Apache Tears.

These beauties are also from Lakewood Candle Company. They're called Milagro Luz, or miracle lights. Each comes in a stemless red wine glass with a religious medal attached.

There's lots more to come. I promise to keep you posted as more merchandise pours in. Have a good weekend!
