Happy New Year from Haley's Cottage

Thank You for all your support in 2010.  We had a fantastic year at Haley's Cottage.
Some New Years Quotes I thought you would enjoy.

Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.
~Oprah Winfrey~

One resolution I have made, and try always to keep, is this: To rise above the little things.
~John Burroughs~

Each age has deemed the new-born year
The fittest time for festal cheer.
~Walter Scott

For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
~T.S. Eliot, "Little Gidding~

Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us. ~Hal Borland~

Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man. ~Benjamin Franklin~

Many people look forward to the new year for a new start on old habits. ~Author Unknown

A True Miracle Treatment

For my whole life I have stuggled with naturally frizzy hair.  Even in High School, I elected to take indoor PE, just so my hair wouldn't frizz, and that's living in Southern California.  Well.... you can imagine what I go through everyday living in the Northwest.  For those who know me, I usually have my hair up mainly due to the frizz.  One of customers, Lindsay from So Zo Hair Salon in Kirkland did a miracle treatment on my hair.
"Brazilian Blowout".  Truly it is the best thing I have ever done.  My hair stays smooth all day, even when I go out to walk the dogs during the day.  I highly recommend this treatment to whoever has the same problem as I do.  It will change your life! The cost is only $125.00 and probably the best money I have ever spent.
Call Lindsay at 425 739-9000 and tell her I sent you.  Make sure and tell me how you like it.

A Haley's Cottage Re Do

This weekend we decided to start early with flipping the store.  It's such a huge job with the size of the store and the size of our furniture.  We had to take alot of it outside in order to do it.  I am still pooped, but happy with the results.  This year we are doing Christmas in mainly white and silver.  We purchased the cutest ornaments with lots of birds and crowns.  So, that is our theme this year, Birds and Crowns.   We normally don't set up this early, but we were so excited about our ornaments, we decided to do it now.  We will be having our open house the day after Thanksgiving.   We are also participating in the Home Tour in Kirkland for the Children's Auxiliary.  More info to follow....

 Our bed is dressed in white ruffles this year, and lots of pillows.
These are the cutest Reindeer you will ever see complete with fur coats.
Lots and Lots of mercury glass!   Still lots more to get out.  
See you soon, Cindy

The French Inspired Home

Today, we received the book
"The French Inspired Home"
Love it!  We have it in the shop.
The book is written by Carolyn Westbrook.   She brings you her first-hand knowledge acquired through years of combing French flea markets for unique treasures of what makes a beautiful French interior. 
I think you will love this book too.

Yeah, I have a couple of pictures!

My friend Lenae from Silver Sage Design in Moses Lake
sent me some pictures of my booth from the
Ruffles and Rust show this weekend. 
Thanks Lenae!

Great Fun!

Ruffles and Rust Show

A big Thank You to Timi for putting on an amazing show.  It was so fun to see some of our old customers who have followed us around for years.   It's always so fun to set up but not to fun to tear down.
A big thank you to my friend Cindy who helped me with both and then even helped me unload the truck in the rain and took in the store.  Now that's a good friend!    My daughters were great and they even dressed up on Friday night.  On the way there, Haley said to Heather, how does Mom get us to do these things, and then laughed.  
Unfortunately, my camera is on the fritz so my pictures didn't come out.
Check out some of the other blogs for pictures, as the cameras were going all day and night.
I hope you all had a great time, and thank you for supporting
Haley's Cottage.

I wanted to introduce you to the most amazing soap I have tried.  The funny thing is that I have carried this line for a couple of years and love the packaging and the fragrances but really never tried it for myself.  My daughter Heather is the rep for this line and said Mom, have you tried this soap.  So.... I brought a bar home and omg.  It is the most luxurious soap I have ever used.   This is a new frangrance called White Hyndrangea.  Along with the soap is a body butter.  Hope you will try it for yourself, don't just look at the pretty packaging.
