gasp: the painted cottage on etsy



I just discovered that my favorite store in the whole world, The Painted Cottage, has an Etsy shop. Click here to swoon.



I have written a few blog posts about wandering through The Painted Cottage's brick-and-mortar location in New Jersey in a wide-eyed trance during visits to my sisters'. On one trip I purchased a small iron gate section and then had to walk through the airport with it tucked uncomfortably beneath my arm and then stow it above my seat!



Now, with the Etsy shop I can just click, although if you are ever anywhere near the South Jersey/Philly area, I highly recommend a visit to this amazing shop. There is even a Painted Cottage Cafe across the street so you can build up some sustenance before fainting over artist Valerie Boothroyd's hand-painted roses, mosaics, shabbified furniture and more.

She has so many lovely things. When I get the money I must try and buy the Welcome sign. Thanks for letting us know about the shop.

Oh I would kill for those shutters. I've been looking for months for something like those. To bad they are so far away from me or I would be down there today picking them up. Shipping would be to hard and to costly.

Hugs,
Joanne

You know I could still kick myself for not stopping by on my way back from Wilmington. But I was under the weather. Pooh! I will trot on over to the Etsy shop right now.

I just found your site (I believe that you left a comment on mine?) & I'm in love! You are now on my list of favorites!

I just love etsy! It is such a great place to find wonderful treasures! I love the story of etsy too. It was started by a young man! He is still supporting artists and is one himself.
Thanks for stopping by it was good to hear from you. I am loving the boys room. Can not wait to see the finished product.

Hi Sweetheart, Such beautiful things. I have a screen similar to the one at the top I paid $2 for but it is black. Mine doesn't have that beautiful flat panel. I think I'll paint it in a similar color and stencil it.
