How things change in our little shop. Look at what we have found for you:

*Linda once again has impressed us by displaying a vintage kitchen cabinet with neat old glasses and plates. Wouldn't this be a great storage piece in your kitchen?

*Now, I have no empty spot in my home that will do this piece justice, but if I did, it would be mine! Nancy has tracked down a wonderfully vintage white buffet, not too big and not too small. You can always tell its a vintage piece by the architectural doo-dads placed on the items. I have never seen a buffet as ornate as this or with an ornate backsplash. This will not be here long as its uses are many - on an enclosed porch, in a bedroom, placed in your entryway. Beautiful!

*Our dearest Sandy.....comes in to give us a laugh or two each time she is in. Then we peruse hew new finds and ooooh and ahhhhhh. Today we are featuring a two glass door cabinet. Its not very big and I could see this hanging in my bathroom holding my unmentionables. Country at its best.

*Monica has been a busy bee, too. Not only is her booth holding some of the prettiest china, both cups, saucers and plates, but she always shows us a bit of whimsey in her selections. Her china definitely sells well- wouldn't some of her plates look pretty perched above your windows? Shabby and romantic! More photos will be available soon of Monica's new venture - a girly girl booth filled with pink, pink and pink! We are excited!

*Our friend Craig, as busy as he is with his new business, Noblesville Antique Mall, still finds the greatest, odd items. Lately his booth has been filled over and over with tables and 4 matching chairs. Because it is so hard to find 4 matching chairs, you have to snatch these fast. He has four glass plates in 4 different colors highlighted in his booth right now. I want to hang these in a plate holder above my fireplace. Use your own imagination for all of his finds.

*Vicki's booth is touting with some new "0ld" stuff. She's brought in some old silver pieces - I see many of these featured in my decorating magzines. She's got an old teapot and a set of silverware still in its storage box. Vicki is a busy lady but she finds the loot - just for you!

*My favorite piece of Joann's is her medium sized country-green pie safe cupboard. This is small enough to fit into a bathroom but large enough to store lots of stuff in your kitchen. You could place a lamp and book on this and let it find its way into your entryway. A very good piece and a great price!

*Lots of small pieces have been added such as small tables, small shelving units and bookcases - all marked under $35. We have found so many accent pieces lately and we are sprucing them and bringing them in just as fast as we can. This week I will be bringing in a vintage shabby white sofa table with architectural accents. I have simply got to quit falling in love with the furniture I am working on! More will follow soon!

Dear Friends:

Oh, how we love springtime in Indiana. Our windowboxes are filled with petunias, verbena, asparagus fern, and dahlias. We have been rummaging to find just the right garden item for you and many other outdoor pieces - both vintage and new. If you haven't been in for a few weeks, please stop in. Our silk flowers are so realistic no one will know but you! We have windchimes, garden stakes and metal plant holders. You are going to love these!

Hooray for the Red, White and Blue! Its picnic time and we have the perfect party goods for you in those very colors. Just add the food and let us do the rest. You might think about sharing that food with your pals at ACC. Decorate with our favorite perky red white and blue pinwheels. Last year we sold out of these quickly!

Marsha has new 99 cent greeting cards back in stock. We now have a nice supply of Rhinestone Roxy flip flops and new charms and baseball hats in both pink and black. We have added several new items to our country area. Brand new colors of Signature Pottery have been ordered. There is a great new color of blue and chocolate and several mixtures of accent pieces and serving pieces. Now we can complete our table settings with a new look. We've tried some new display ideas in our jewelry area that you can easily copy for your own home.

Remember A Corner Cottage....where inspiration is free!

We have been selling so much furniture this past month that you must stop in to see what is new - we are changing almost every day. We hope to see you soon.
