A 5th Monday Party

It's Hard to believe another year has come and gone. New Years is fast approaching. What a perfect Monday for a party and a little update in what to look forward to in the New Year at the Etsy Cottage Style Blogspot.

First, just a little update on some additional linky parties for the ECS Blogspot. Everyone is already familiar with our monthly Monday parties.........................................................
1st week--Market Monday        
                 A virtual flea market showcasing fine                                                  art, crafts, vintage and antique items,
                 supplies, and more
2nd week--Vintage Cottage Style
                   Showcasing vintage finds and                                                              decor    
3rd week--Welcome to the Cottage Craft Room
                   Showcases studios and craft areas, tutorials, designs in 
4th week--Cottage Style Entertaining
                  Showcases tablescapes and recipes
to break up the week I thought maybe we'd add a few Wednesday parties for 2014.................................

1st week- Cottage Stitchery is dedicated to those 
                             who enjoy creating or collecting the fabric                                  arts, needlepoint, embroidery, quilting, etc.

2nd week- Cottage Paper Craft is dedicated to those who enjoy                         creating or collecting Ephemera Art. Scrapbooking,
                  artist trading cards (atc), paper dolls, banners, etc.

After the first of the year I'll announce others, but I thought you could mark your calenders so you can plan to attend these 2014 parties. 

Now, let's welcome the New Year with a festive get-together showing off how you celebrate. 
Any special recipes? Do you set the table? Are you the one throwing the big blowout or having an intimate tete-tete for two? Do you create any crafts especially for the end of the year?

Just use Inlinkz here and join you post to the party!

Holiday Entertaining


We all love to entertain in our 'cottages', especially during the Holidays. Our cottage styles really shine when we combine favorite recipes or take-out with cherished dinnerware, beverageware, serving pieces, silverware, linens, placemats, and beloved collections to create Christmas fun and wonderful seasonal tablescapes in a comfy nook for one, on an intimate table for two, for a small get-together, or for a grand gathering. Themes are as boundless as our imaginations. Each table a cottage one-of-a-kind.
This week long Blog Party is open to everyone.
