At our show last weekend ...we were situated to share space with a wonderful lady by the name of Shirley ..from the Cottage in the Garden.
Shirley is a sweetheart of a gal ..and I have to say ..her space and offerings were just lovely. She makes the most beautiful jackets and bloomers from vintage linens ..and everyone loved them so much she sold out the first day.
Besides her handmade Vintage clothing offerings ..Shirley and her husband offered some of the most lovely furniture and home decor pieces.
We quickly made friends with Shirley ..and it was such an enjoyable 2 days to share spaces next to each other ..and to share a bit of our selves with one another.
I have to tell you I was most impressed by Shirley's age which she shared with us. Of course I'm not going to post it here as I don't know how Shirley would feel about that ..but what I will say is she is an inspiration. Those equal in age to her ..tend to be feeble or incapabable of the work load that she tended too both days ..I only hope I have an equal amount of energy when my years roll around to equal hers. It just goes to show that your only as old as you allow yourself to be. Keepy busy and keep going ..If you sit down and quit you'll grow old ..
Alrighty ....here's some picts of Shirleys space ..she's in a few of them.
