The Story of Cottage Kat…

Cottage Kat . . .

Driving into Dallas yesterday across the dried up lake , I was thinking

about how I ended up leaving my hometown, and security of a big city

to a rather sparse existence in a town of around 3300. It must have

been ingrained into my head after many Sunday afternoon drives to

“the country” with my dad at the somewhat reluctant helm and us

kids all piled into the car with Mommy. My poor mom, always wanted

to retreat back to a simpler life, similar to her growing up in a small,

Alabama town. Of course, Daddy would have  nothing to do with that!

She even drug us kids out to Lake Tawakoni one summer to check out a house

that was rentable for the summer. No way! We didn’t want to leave

our friends for the summer so she finally gave up that dream. Even the

past few years, I have tried to move my family to a smaller town in the

Hill Country but it never seemed to work out. I guess getting a divorce,

was the only way this dream of mine would become a reality. Reading

way too many House and Garden, Victoria and House Beautiful

magazines since I was grown up and developing my style of home interiors

did I start to always wish for a cottage type home with fabulous gardens!

After finally deciding to take the plunge at this stage of my life, and go ahead

and seek divorce, selling our home and then the reality of finding another,

affordable yet suitable home did the country become a viable option.

Checking MLS one day after our home went under contract I found this little

cottage! I called and found out that it had just gone under contract~

But I decided the next day to go take a look at it anyway, and needless to say,

felt like it was ‘my home’ as well as the perfect cottage and dream I had

wanted for years. Being a Realtor, I called the listing agent back and told her

a bit of my story and asked her to let me know if for some reason the buyers

backed out, to please let me know. Well, wouldn’t you know, faith is a great

thing to have! I received the ‘call’ a week later and after a bunch of tears and happy

discussion, went home and wrote a contract. All I could say was  “God is so

Good!” I knew this was my house and He provided! I has now been 6 weeks,

and I am getting adjusted to life in a small town, great neighbors and also everyone

in town knowing exactly which house you live in or knowing someone you have

met along the way. I still drive to town about 4-5 days a week to do my

scheduled baby sitting days or to meet friends or show houses. I have many

photo clubs and friends to meet with weekly so life is similar yet different.

Hopefully, I can start to document this little town and see what those whom

have lived here for  years see as familiar, yet through my eyes are unique and

worthy of a photo!

 

I’m in a Gallery show… Come check it out!

and the reception is next Friday night from 7-10 pm!
I have 6 fine art pieces in the show along with 4 other new artists

Off to Canton! but it’s not 1st Monday…

I had a business trip on Saturday to Canton, and having gone
there for about 5 years every first Monday to set up my booth
when I had my children’s clothing company, I was anxious to
see what was new in town and all around the fair grounds.
Of course, I found the nicest shop in town, which is there
transplanted from Big D, to a quieter way of life, right on
the square! I also ran into dear old friends, whose booth is
in the Pavillions, Sunday House, Don and Lee! Lunch at the corner
bakery with their squash soup which was as good as any fine restaurant
in Dallas! What a fun day, now if it had only been 1st Monday…?

Art in the Desert

On our way home from Jasmine and Alec’s wedding, we
decided to stop over in Marfa to check it out! ALways
wanted to visit and see all the galleries and of course
the Prada museum?…some shot with my iphone… and a
delicious dinner at Cochineal and a stay at the Hotel
Pasiano, what more could you ask for?

Real Men wear Skirts…at least Scottish Men…

or, even if you are not sure if you are Scottish…
you can! Yes, Mr. Seth allowed me to snap his dapper
photo yesterday at the Antique and Vintage Jewelery show
in Grapevine. Yes, Mr Sheet metal worker, Seth. I think
he looks smashing in his kilt and what better place to sport
such an outfit than with a bunch of vintage, jewels, clothes,
cowboy boots and what ever!
