Girls Only Karen's Kozy Kottage Weekend!
What a wonderful weekend I spent with my artist friends Francie and Molly and Molly's sweet daughter Lilly at my Kozy Kottage in Mount Dora!
It is my special "Happy Place" about 3 1/2 hours from where I live in South Florida. I call it my Artist's retreat, and I light up every time I walk through the door!
I baked homemade bread with Lilly and it was DELECTABLE!! we served it with honey butter!
Lilly played with Satine, my sweet Standard poodle all weekend!!
Oh, when artful friends gather, there are always such wonderful gifts!!! I received 2 of the most SPECIAL treasured items ever! This AMAZING 1950's Prom Gown from Francie which is so stunning, it will have it's own special place on a wall in my Kozy Kottage!
And THIS Beautiful Framed piece that Molly made for me! We had found some old skeleton keys in a drawer and Molly used one for this project she had in mind! She hand stitched the words and it is something I will cherish forever!
Sweet Lilly LOVES Vintage and had spoken for so long about wanting to come to the Kozy Kottage! She was so excited! I had wanted for a very long time to photograph Lilly...I knew she would be such a beautiful subject! Here are just a few of the many beautiful shots I took!
I call this shot "Lilly with a Lilly"...so sweet!
And this I call "Kozy Kottage Queen"
No girls weekend is complete without a little pampering!!
We did hand treatments and mud masks! I wish I had a
photo of all of us together!
I am always heavy hearted when I leave this little house, but the fun and love and memories remain within until the next time I open the door and say...."Hello Kozy!!".... xoxoxo
