It's's's coming! The 3rd Annual Cottage Tour, that is! I just met with Sheri of Fabrics Etc, Lynni of Antique Cottage & Gardens, and Jeanette of Infinite Designs. Much was discussed and we are all looking forward to Spring. Now, the search begins for (4) four cottage-style 'nests' to feature on this year's tour! These fotos were taken by Doni Greenberg who wrote a lovely column. The tour benefited Habitat for Humanity. This year's tour will benefit our local Redding Women's Refuge.

Last year Maggie & Ed Andersen graciously hosted an artisan faire complete with 20 artists, music,and refreshments!

Four lovely nests, beautiful sunny weather, and lots of smiles. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and saying a prayer that this year is just as good!

Mark your calendar: Sunday, April 26th from 11am-4pm. Ticket cost: $20. each.
