Then of course we have an awesome Giveaway from my favorite things collection and then the most important of all we have a new Animal Charity…when you comment you are automatically entered into the Giveaway and for each comment $1 is donated by us to the Charity of the week! So come on in and enjoy the fun!!! This weekly event is a Win Win Win!!!
Vol 11. Welcome friends! I am going to be doing a little something new on Saturdays. The Cottage Market in the early years (aka…before I knew any thing about blogging lol) had a little segment called Down The Rabbit Hole. It was a collection of random links that I found throughout the week that I loved and think you will do. So I thought it was time to bring it back New and Improved, because I am going to be adding a little Giveaway each week…a little something that I found fun and thought you would like. The items are not sponsored and are purchased directly by me to send you a smile. My approach to this New Year is living more simply and putting more emphasis on the “little things” and the important things in life like kindness…compassion…health…family…love of animal…charity…well I think you get the picture… So on Saturday’s sharing some fun links…sending someone a smile with a token of my appreciation will be the norm. You can enter the Giveaway by simply leaving a comment. There is another very important facet to Saturday’s Down The Rabbit Hole…for EACH comment left The Cottage Market…aka myself and my family will be donating $1 to a deserving charity each week which we will announce and be accountable for…so let’s leave those comments . Tell us what your favorite things are and spread the love. The Cottage Market is also making a personal pledge to donate 5 percent of our net earnings to Charity this year…it’s a way of giving back and that is so very important to us. So come on in an enjoy…spread the love and maybe win a little something cool while donating to charity. Scroll on down to see this weeks FUN Giveaway! (remember…blue words are clickable : )

This Week’s Charity is: Street Tails Animal Rescue
Street Tails Animal Rescue (STAR) began in 2001, as founder Lindsay Condefer’s one-woman effort to literally save one dog at a time. Initially operating out of her pet store, the operation blossomed into its own location in 2011 with the help of friends and supporters. Since then, the number of animals STAR has helped place into loving, forever homes for has grown exponentially.
STAR’s mission is to help the homeless and unwanted animals, within the Philadelphia area, by helping them receive proper medical attention, educating the public on the importance of spaying and neutering, and by placing these animals in suitable, compatible, and most of all, loving homes.
We depend on helping hands to assist us in every day activities, chores, and, events. If you are interested in lending a helping hand or three, please email us at email@example.com and tell us you’d like to help 🙂

Crystal Young says
Oh, I love the hummingbird mug. I am heading to Michael’s to buy the materials for that wreath! I think stained would be nice too, but I won’t do the extra step though.
Hi there Crystal…you have to let me know how the wreath turned out! I am so excited to see it!!! Sending you tons of hugs and love and wishes for a wonderful weekend!
Crystal Young says
I bought some roses and some of the greenery. The Michael’s I go to is moving across the street, so there inventory is low right now. So, I’ll need to go to another location to find the rest of the things I need. And I will probably exchange the roses I bought, they aren’t as realistic as the ones shown. I will show you a pic when I get it done though.
BTW – I see I won the mug! Yay! What do I do now?
