Cottage Chat


Picket Fence Garden

Cottage Chat is a weekly e-newsletter, originally written in connection with a cottage collectables business.  After retiring from the shop in 2009, Sharon continued publishing Cottage Chat as a cottage lifestyle newsletter.  Cottage Chat is an insiders’ look at what’s new in cottage decorating, recipes, project ideas, and destinations.

From her location in their restored dairy barn in Illinois, Sharon’s view of the world is home-centered and value-based.  To receive Cottage Chat, e-mail Sharon at the Farm Grove barn:  and ask to be added to our complimentary subscription list.

      Hi Jess,
      I’ll add your e-mail to Cottage Chat. You will receive a bi-weekly newsletter that pretty much is a journal of what occupies my spare time. Hope you are well!
