Getting Ready for the Spring Open House!

Since our Spring celebration is just around the corner, Ivy Gate Cottage is getting all spruced up. With our last (hopefully) winter storm moving through this weekend (12 inches of snow forecast for Julian tomorrow!), it is time to get ready for Spring! Corners of greenery like this one are popping up all through the shop and barn area. Bulbs are springing up, the lilacs are budding out and primroses are blooming in the garden areas.

Next Saturday & Sunday (March 24 & 25) from 10 am to 4 pm come join us if you can for our Spring Open House. We’ll have all kinds of treats for you, including delightful snacks, special discounts and eye-popping spring decor as we redecorate for Spring. Stop off next door at Descanso Mercantile those same days for Michelle’s Open House as well. Make a day of it and drive up to Julian to see all the blooming daffodils along the way.

Take a look at our new spring line of bath cupcakes — they look good enough to eat! Each cupcake has a “cake” that is a fizzing bath bomb and “icing” top that is really a sweet soap topping! The scents pictured are (clockwise) Lavender, Lemon, Orange Creamsicle and Mint. They can be purchase in groups of four, two or just a single cupcake.

Be on the look out for a very special invitation coming your way for a special event at Ivy Gate in early May! Check out our new Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ivygatecottage

While we’re on the topic of beautiful things and Spring, take a look below at an incredible Spring Crown that my friend, Deb Hodge (of Swoon!) has created and is currently offering as as project for her monthly kit club: Absolutely breathtaking!

To see Deb’s work and kit club projects, go to her blog: http://www.swoonwithdebhodge.blogspot.com

She is an amazingly creative woman! (I try to surround myself with women like that!)
