Sometimes a situation looks completely overwhelming until one starts to see a little progress. Allow us to share some of our babysteps towards completing the facelift in each of the rooms of the cottage.

This is the second room that we've been able to tackle. As you can see, it has wonderful potential and just needed to be emptied and given a touch up.

Ahhh! Now this is sooo much better. Don't you think?

Imagine with me how this room will look when we can finally start to fill it up again with treasures like these.

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by. Each of your visits brings us a smile!

Extra, Extra Read All About It!

Colby Cottage is so excited to announce the beginning of a completely new undertaking. We found an antique store that needed new owners or should I say, they found us and we are so excited. We have committed to making it a new and exciting experience for antique shoppers in the Eugene area of Oregon. It is our aim to make this store a destination that will not disappoint its patrons whether they are local, from greater Oregon, or even from beyond the borders of this state.

In addition to featuring a choice selection of antiques, we plan to host a gourmet coffee bar, and also serve a fine bouquet of teas including loose leaf selections.

Have you ever enjoyed high tea with friends? We will be specializing in hosting high tea events for you and your special guests. We will have a few designated areas inside the cottage for tea events and we are excited to let you know about our outside dining area in the garden.

We are anticipating that sometime in September will be the first day that we will be open officially as Colby Cottage. Please continue to check regularly in order to keep abreast of any updates. Please add yourself as a follower of this blog for the most efficient access to the most recent news regarding our newest adventure.
