Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. ♡ I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea. ♡ Well,  it’s a little strange to think that it is already Thursday.♡ I have “sort” of  been getting ready for a women’s luncheon that I’m planning to host in just a few days.   However, I must admit the Cottage Garden keeps calling out to me.♡ I’m in love with the warmth of summer.  It gives me an excuse (not that I need one) to get up with the birdies,  go outside, listen to nature, and p~l~a~y.                                   Some people speak of the need to get away  “from it all”…                                There’s really no need for me … Continue reading

Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea ♡ Happy Saturday! Have I ever told you that Saturday is my favorite day of the week? And,  ever since I was a little girl, I have adored Saturday mornings.♡ I get so excited about the possibilities for the day. ♡   And, now that I’m ALL grown up, (grin) I love Saturdays even more! Today, I am very inspired to decorate/straighten out our cottage kitchen cupboard. –♡ You probably aren’t too impressed. Well, Darn! Straightening out this little cupboard makes me so happy.

Are you making any plans? Can I share a little secret? Little  Mademoiselle Cam’i,  is upset with me. ♡ I’m not quite sure how she figured out that I’m trying to plan a little vacation for my husband and I. Perhaps, it is because she keeps “catching” me reading all things French. (Big smile) Hmmm.. She is definitely smarter than I  already thought she was! Well,  if truth be told….(darn) I HAVE been reflecting of a wonderful trip I had taken to Paris. Joe,  and I celebrated our second anniversary there. That’s a photo of us on the morning we departed from Los Angeles, Ca. We have this little ritual,  I think it is rather sweet. (Of … Continue reading
