Escaping to cottage country

 Aubrey and I escaped to the cottage for a day this week. Sometimes you just need to escape. My brain is swirling with work, and getting the Holiday 2011 collection designed (yes, I have to start this early) So a trip to the cottage was in order. There is something about driving through the countryside that calms me. (Above is a photo from the road that winds down to our cottage)

In my last post I showed you our finds from Coboconk (which is where my cottage is). A new antique shop opened up and we popped in. Although they weren't actually *open* as she was setting up for the long weekend, but let us in .... and was probably glad she did because we bought a LOT.

Table of wooden boxes starting ar $4
The table of wooden boxes, around $4 to $6.

I fell for this oil painting but it was a bit wavy and I didn't know where I'd put her. But I loved her. And she was $65

Vintage rolling pins, $8 each

The owners told me stories of finding treasures in the dump ... yes, the dump. And they invited me to go and check it out for myself. At the thought of finding awesome treasures, I kindly told them I'd be more than happy to let them do the searching and I'd just pay them for their efforts! But can you believe that people throw out amazing things? Honestly, donate it. Don't throw it out. :(

Hey there! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.
Does operating a well-established blog like
yours require a massive amount work? I am completely new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary daily.

I'd like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog
like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Hi there, I'm new to running a blog and websites in general and was wondering how you got the "www" included in your domain name? I see your domain, "" has the www and my web address looks like, "". Do you know just how I can alter this? I'm
using Wordpress. Thank you very much

And while investigators say the murder victim is linked to a "feud," they are not sharing
the details about that part of the investigation.

Howdy. I am wondering if you'd be interested in doing a website link exchange? I see your blog: and my blog are primarily based around the same subject matter. I'd really like to switch links or
perhaps guest author a article for you. Here is my personal email: I highly recommend you contact me if
you're even slightly interested. Appreciate it.

I'm truly enjoying the design and layout of your site. It's a very
easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit
more often. Did you hire out a developer to
create your theme? Fantastic work!

Hi! I hope you don't mind but I decided to submit your website: to my on-line directory website. I used, "Blogger: Aubrey & Lindsay's Little House Blog" as your website title. I hope this is alright with you. In the event that you'd like me to change the title or remove it entirely, email me at Thanks.

Hello! I could have sworn I've been to this blog before but after going through many of the posts I realized it's new to me.

Anyways, I'm definitely delighted I came across it and I'll be book-marking it and checking
