Over the Christmas Holiday I found myself in Carmel CA. A trip to the Carmel mission was particularly inspiring to me. As I walked around the grounds of the mission I felt revived by all of the spiritual statues etc..... Not to mention the beautiful gardens located throughout the mission grounds. I came home with a sense of renewal and inspiration for creating more recycled products made from tires. I was also inspired this month at the Alameda Point antique and collectible show. I had a customer
come up to my booth and tell me how much she loved the tire chandelier that her and her husband bought from me last Spring. She wanted to tell me that she loved it and enjoys it every time she is out in her garden. I love to hear that people are inspired and feel good when they are enjoying creations that I have made. I am also excited that I will be joining my friends once again at the Tattered House. I will be a vendor at the Tattered House once again. Look for my collection to be at the Tattered House by the end of the month. The Tattered House is located at 417 Oak Street Roseville. I will keep you posted on the happenings there. Also, join us Sunday March 6th at the Alameda Point Antique + Collectible Fair. We will be in our regular space at J-22. Until next time. Be Blissed.

These are some great Euro-Linens that i love. Danny and Eric are a great couple that import these great linens. I met them at the Alameda point antique and collectible show. Their linens are great. The craftsmanship is amazing too. These linens will help give you that extra edge to feel like you are really at home. The kind of linens that make you not want to get out of bed in the morning. Or at least help you look forward to going to bed at night. Check them out for a quality linen experience.
We have been busy creating new tire pot products. It is a great joy to have a product that creates something functional and unique and at the same time is helping to save the environment from excessive land fill. As Spring is in the air. This is a great time to make something beautiful out of a recycled tire. As the Summer is approaching we have several shows in the works. Stay tuned for more information on up coming shows. Until then be Blissed!

Until next time enjoy some of these great pictures form January Alameda. We will be there this month rain or shine in our regular space. J-22. Be Blissed.

A great joy to living the vintage lifestyle comes in reclaiming that which was intended to be used and thrown away. Brown Dog Cottage is pleased to share with you our newest creation. Flower pot's made from reclaimed tires. Tires are not made out of the most biodegradable materials. So, we are using our own creative way to help contribute to living in an Eco friendly environment. Tire flower pot's are a fun, creative way to do this. These pot's are available at the Tattered House in Roseville or at our monthly space in Alameda. Space # J-22. If you are in Roseville or Alameda stop by and take a look and say hi. Until next time. Be Blissed!
