Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. ♡ I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea. ♡       Happy Friday! How was your week. ..I hope you have been sailing through it . ..♡ Unless you are new to my blog (and, welcome if you are!) you are aware that I just recently made a huge change in my life by selling our lovely cottage in California,  and moving (finally) to a sweet 1946 beach cottage on the Oregon Coast.  And, I must say that this former/new OC gal (Orange  County/Oregon coast) is feeling free. It was quite a process, but little by little I let go of all my “stuff” with the desire to create a more simple life.  Soooo… I thought it would be fun to edit, and re-share a post about how it all came to be. Re-post from … Continue reading

Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. ♡ I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea. ♡ Of course I’m hoping your week was filled with lots of JoY….yes, that’s what I am hoping for you. Mine was busy, fun, and continues to feel a little bittersweet…. Busy part:  I continued packing. Fun part:  I finally bought a new purse. Well, okay I actually bought two. (grin)  Bittersweet:  a keen awareness that I am really getting ready to say good-bye to this sweet little cottage, friends & family… in my long time state of  sunny California. And, depending on what day you are reading this post…depends on where I am.   Very likely I’m either on my way to our new/old home, or perhaps already there. I plan on returning one last time to southern California to finalize a few things…say more good-byes, and crymyeyesout. … Continue reading

Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. ♡ I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea ♡ Hooray it’s Saturday!  Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? I’ve got a few things going on today that should be quite fun. I’m “thinking” date day! ♡ Warning: I have a feeling today’s post will have a thread of bittersweetness to it…..♡   Looking back on my week…   Perhaps it has something to do with working in the garden (grant me serenity)……♡ Or those memories of dreams, and hopes,  from long ago… ( accept the things I cannot change) Might of even been stirred when I created a beautiful space in our tucked away laundry room. ..(Courage to change the things I can) Or,who knows, maybe it was the lovely memories of all those things. (Gratitude) Dear reader, I’m wondering if you are ever amazed at … Continue reading

Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage.♡ I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea. ♡ With this warmer weather, I’m really enjoying sitting outside in the garden.  Early in the morning, I find a quiet little room to have my tea, or coffee in . Outdoor rooms are very easy to create. And, Summer is the perfect time to create one. Perhaps to most, this appears to be a very large pomegranate tree. ..  However,  it is actually a perfect spot to create a quiet get away. I’d love to show you one of my favorite outdoor creations. Outdoor rooms allow you a chance to enjoy the experience of living, rather than racing the clock. I enjoy spending a day, or part of a day,  with absolutely nothing on my agenda. ♡ When I take time to slow down…   I begin to … Continue reading
