Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea. .,♡ I thought it might be nice to take you on a mini garden walking tour…. It’s pretty quiet this morning,  and I’ve been doing some watering.

The bricks were hand laid by the previous owner,  and her two young sons. I think they were 9, and 11 at the time. What a sweet memory. ♡ … Continue reading

Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea. ♡ This is a re~post from before I moved to the Oregon Coast from California. Actually, it’s from before the decision was made to move.  I had been on a cleaning, and editing out things in my home, and life. Trying to keep those things that brought beauty, joy, and simple living. Since then I have received many inquiries about how it all happened. So I thought I’d share this post again.

A week in ReViEw…♡

Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea. ..♡ Okay. ..I know its only Thursday. .. But I thought it might be fun to look back on the week so far. This past week has given me an opportunity to meet new friends,  learn from a wise one. .. and spend time with a friend from my youth.  I’ve thought about how each has affected me in some way. Not one is the same. Sort of like beautiful rain clouds… filled with possibilities, and forever changing as we do. Each of these experiences reminded me of why good friendships are so important. They enable us to listen,  follow our own unique dream, destiny, and fulfillment. They are wonderful mirrors for us.♡ Looking back just a couple of days ago,  I was preparing for a Spring Tea fundraiser. … Continue reading

Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea. ..♡ I’m wondering if you have a WoNdErFuL, WiSe, ElDeRlY, YoUtHfUl , friend?  I sure hope so! One of the reasons that I’m a very lucky lady, is because I have found treasures in my FrIeNdsHiPs. One of my friends is named Catherine. Catherine is 97 years young. .. And she is so wise for her youth.  She fell two months ago, broke her hip, and went into a convalescent home after surgery.  I have visited her several times, and during one of my visits she was in the recreation room playing Bingo. She was having the greatest time. You would have never known she was still in pain. She was focused on her game, and of course she wanted to win.  Her physical therapist said  Catherine was making … Continue reading
