I Ride my Bicycle!!!

This is the current Cottage Panache Mascot ~ The BIKE ~ with having so many inquiries as to how much is the Bicycle or is it for sale!! My answer has always been..."When I find another I will sell!!! So, that being said...I HAVE FOUND ANOTHER!!! yEahhhh! I have taken numbers from some customers that are interested but unfortunately not of all inquiries!!! So I'm putting it out there:
Bike Raffle~~~~~~~~~~ I will be selling $5.00 raffle tickets for the bicycle ~ and so everyone has a chance, (for those who wish to)
I will run the raffle for at least a month since many may be on vacation or stay~cation!!! I will even ship the bicycle if you don't live in the area! Not sure what the shipping charge is yet, but if enough tickets are sold to cover - it could be free. So spread the word to all that you think might wish a chance to get a vintage pale blue green Huffy bicycle with the baskets that you see ~ (if shipping ~ minus the plants of course!)
(who hasn't taken that chance before and the odds are much better for you here with the bicycle)
~Just call me or email me if you are not local ~
I'm sorry to say that I would probably not be able to ship International because I will ship via Greyhound!
at my shop 817-595-4040 or email ~
to purchase your raffle with your debit card!!!
Thanks for visiting

Change in Mood...Blogging Blue

Trying to keep things cooled down a bit. The more shade the better is what I say!
Just a couple of random pics of what you might find on the patio at Cottage Panache.
Well another Monday has come and nearly gone and I thought that before I went home and listened to the kids fight over MY laptop, that I would do a quick post! Once I walk in the door I won't see it again until their heads are fast asleep upon their pillows. The only problem is...they will probably outlast me. After all they are the ones that get to sleep in!!! I once knew someone that gave their children Benadryl just to get them to go to sleep!!! That was many years ago. Mine have allergies and I fear that it would boarder on abuse and it would no longer be effective for their allergies. I didn't even want to give my daughter the medication that the Doctor prescribed for ADHD! My advice is to ride it out and give them more attention and you'll get through it! And let them stay up a little later...after all it is their Summer Vacation! Anyhoo, tomorrow I will hopefully have more time for pictures of great finds and information about a new addition to the front fascade and how I will say goodbye to an existing one. Can you spell......B_I_K_E!!!??? Or maybe...T_R_I_K_E!
P>S> Tell me what you think about my new look! Blue is not just for Mondays anymore!
