A Gardener's Cottage

One of my favorite stops when we were in Asheville was a litte shop called A Gardener's Cottage.  Its located just outside the Biltmore entrance and when we arrived in Asheville, it was closed but I just had to make time to stop in.  The inside was just so perfect I wished I could live there.

I picked up the little crown below and I fell in love with a birdfeeder that was there. It was a little bird on the edge of a shell-shaped bowl. I didn't get it because I think the squirrels would have a field day with it, but I wish I had because I'd love to have it even if it was empty.

The angel water gauge above came from A Gardener's Place which was a shop on the Biltmore grounds.  I could have gone backrupt in that store.  I loved this acorn birdhouse but I already have several birdhouses.

There were birdcages galore ...

I can't believe I didn't buy one of these crown jars.  Temporary insanity I guess ...

I've never been a fan of gazing balls but there were so many beautiful ones here.  I really love the green one on the lower left side.

There were quite a few of these miniature conservatories too.

That was pretty much it for shopping.  Like the rest of my trip, I wish I had more time.  I got one more thing but didn't get a chance to take a picture yet.

I've been pretty busy lately between settling back in from our trip, my daughter finishing up school and a belly dance show coming up that I've been preparing for for weeks.  At some point I'm hoping to get back to my partially finished shed.


  1. Oh, what a perfect little crown!! Isn't Asheville the best place to shop? I think so!

    Thanks for sharing!


  2. I would enjoy this shop too and the trip to Biltmore as well.
