Our Texas Country Cottage~

Hello from Texas! I live happily with my husband Tim in a Texas Gingerbread Cottage Home built in 1891 - a very old 115 year old farmhouse & a home I've dreamed of all my life with all the character & creakiness & coziness that makes it "home sweet home"~. I have always had a love for Cottages & for years I've collected anything "Vintage Cottage" from Cottage Pictures to Cottage China. Our children are grown so we share our home with 2 tiny chihuahuas - Cabo & Oreo Cookie, a Blue Russian Cat - Karma, & have a managerie of farm babies including 2 goats Violet & Vanilla Bean, Chickens, 12 new baby chicks & white pigeons. I am a "Cottage Shabby Chic Romantic Homes" girl....I love vintage fabric, laces, & anything with roses ~~ I love to sew & create things. Love to Garden! I have the pleasure of working from my cottage home selling on ebay as kattz*cottage for 8 years now. I am not a shopper of new things so my auctions & our home consists of estate sale/flea market/thrift store/& garage sale finds....old things that already have a lifetime of love & seem to easily fit right into their new life. I love living in Texas & I feel very much at peace in my little Cottage in the Country!

Kathy,
I will be checking out your ebay auctions as soon as I leave this post.
I sure wish you lived closer as I could just sit and drink lemonade all day at your house. It's makes me want to do some things to my house out here in the country.
