Welcome to my Blog!

Hi and Welcome!

I am pretty new to blogging, but I love reading blogs and looking at all of the creative ideas other cottage lovers have! I love thrifting, vintage items, and entertaining. I am also trying to start my own business, using my very own creativity. I make little girls Tutu's and I love making fun creative signs. I am learning to sew and can't wait to create with you! I am working on new inventory for the new year, so I will be updating it as much as I can!

Thank you for stopping by.

Show & Tell Friday and A Cottage Down the Layne's Very First Give Away!

Happy Friday everyone!  And thank you for stopping by to check out my very first Give Away!
Friday, April 9th is a special day for me, because my neice was born today 13 years ago!
I thought I would celebrate by hosting the very first give away from this blog!

I am also entering the Show & Tell Friday hosted by http://romantichome.blogspot.com/!
If you have a moment pop on over to Cindy's and take a look at her adorable Show & Tell and browse through the other beautiful items others have posted to Show!

This is my beautiful Tea Set!  It was given to me by a very dear friend Katie.  I have been looking, searching for a Tea Set ( I didn't have one) and I could never find one I just loved or that was in my price range.... Miniscule Price Range.  This Christmas, my dear friend, suprised me with this gorgeous tea set at our annual Christmas party. 

Would you care for a cup of Constant Comet?

Let me pour you a cup or two!

Thank you for checking out my Show & Tell Friday entry.  I absolutely love this Tea Set and I look for any occassion to use it!

Be Sure to check out my give away below!!!

Up for grabs is this very beautiful Limoges plate.  Covered in pink and cream roses, this is my very last Limoges dinner plate.  I had a set for sell on my website ( all but this one is gone).

To enter the give away, please leave a comment below.  I will announce the winner on Monday, April 12th!  The cut off to enter will be Sunday, April 11th at midnight!

This is a close up of the detail on the plate!

For a second chance to win, just mention this Give Away on your blog.  Be sure to let me know in your comment if you are mentioning this Give Away on your blog, so that I will know to enter your name twice! 

Good Luck and Have a wonderful weekend!  ~Rachelle

  4. I love tea sets and yours is delicate looking. Thanks for sharing it. I would love to win the give away! The plate is perfect to go with the rest of my pink china!

  5. Love your tea set it's so pretty. Anything with flowers get to me. I would love to win your plate. I am starting a set of pink flowered dinner plates and I only have 1 plate so far. My idea is to collect different kinds of dinner plates and set the table so each person can choose their favorite. This win would be a big help. Thanks.

  9. Rachelle, what an adorable cottage you have. I see that we have some of the same interest in common and I think I miss Texas almost as much as you miss Washington... all of my relatives live there. It would be fun to sit and have tea with you and "talk story" as my Joe always says. By the way- Thank you so much for being my first follower. That was quite a thrill for me ...and still is! :)


  10. Your tea set is awesome!! I love the dinner plate. I sure hope I win!

  11. Shoot! I am always a day late and a dollar short! HA! Be blessed. Cindy
