Show and Tell Monday (on

Hi everyone......yep, that's me, a day late and sometimes a dollar short! *smile* My Show and Tell this week is the brick & mortar Cozy Cottage Gifts and Decor located in Paris, Arkansas. Starting in October I'll be open again on Saturdays and I've been busy, busy, busy rearranging furniture and getting things ready for autumn and the upcoming holiday season. Here are a few pictures of what I've done so far.

French teacart all dressed up for autumn.

Glassware in the china cabinet.

Red desk...finally may remember it from previous blogposts.

This is a really cool art-deco style desk with handpainted vines and of my favorite pieces. Excuse the tacky price tag on the front (I removed it after the photo and replaced it with a nice, smaller one).

A pretty autumn display of Jewel Tea "Autumn Leaf" dinnerware on the buffet I just finished painting. The lampshade is covered in a toddler skirt but I think it's kinda cute!

This is an authentic Sellers kitchen cabinet. My husband restored it to like-new condition and can hardly bear to part with it. It sits where the faux fireplace used to be in the living room. It is the first thing a customer sees when they walk in the cottage. Hopefully it will ellicit an "Ahhhh....." moment. Where did the fireplace go, you ask? It came home with me where I will set it up in my bedroom once the new carpeting is installed. I'm planning to hole up this winter with my laptop, tv/dvd player and some good books!

Cute little wicker baby buggy....its current passenger is a set of pretty rose pattern dinnerware.

I'll try to get pics of the two bedrooms and bathroom before long.....hope you enjoyed taking a peek at my Show and Tell!

Oh Debbie,
I love that Sellars Cabinet! I lost a couple in my Love your shop. Wish I could hold up in my bedroom with a fireplace, laptop and good books for the winter but in FL it is still too hot for a fireplace although I do have a faux one in my beach room. LOL

Hi Inka.....well, the fireplace is fake and you could always turn down the A/C and pretend it is cold...LOL Thanks for looking at my blog....wish we lived closer, that Sellers cabinet could be yours!

Pink hugs,
