November’s Calendar Girl is…

Suzanne Marvin!

As you can see in the calendar boxes, Eric just had his workshop at the Cottage Girls’ Headquarters in Georgia.


Which also meant I was busy photographing everyone’s baskets for the 2016 calendar. I can’t wait to show you another year of “Cover Girls.” Also, if anyone wants to pre-order a 2016 Calendar, let me know!

On another note, some of you noticed, Eric did not fulfill his Five Questions Friday — you know, the ones he adamantly stated (in the prior week) he was going to ask himself because, as he put it, my questions were “lame.” I let him off the hook because he did have a long day teaching this past Friday and we joined a group for dinner right after. So when we returned, he was exhausted. And had to get up early for Saturday’s class. So he got yet another “free pass” from me.

The Calendar Girls: Third Quarter

Let’s say bye to summer with the Basket Cottage’s Calendar Girls for July, August and September!

July’s Calendar Girl was Kathy Cosgrove…


Calendar Girl for August was the lovely (and still is) Sybil Sweat…


(Yes, that is a conglomerate of 3 photos for August 30th — what are the odds that three of the cottage girls would celebrate their birthdays on the same day?)

And September’s was a group photo: Patti Patterson, Kathy Cosgrove, Tracey Reidy and Diana Carscaddon…
