Official Grand Opening of Moondog Cottage!

Moondog Cottage finally had it's "Official Grand Opening" today at The Secret Garden!  We have been so excited with how well our vintage items have done and have now expanded into the Barn Loft also!  Thank you to everyone who has made us a success and a special thank you to Debbie, Bart & Adam for being so gracious, helpful and just plain wonderful!


This vintage Royal typewriter will add character to any room.  Or to start your first novel on!

We have an assortment of wonderful vintage liquor decanters in assorted shapes, sizes & colors!
They look beautiful when you can group them together, adding a Shabby Chick flair.

I've always loved old cameras!  They're so collectable.  We have an assortment right now
purchased from estate sales.  These are from the 1930's and 1950's.

We have lots of gorgeous silver pieces right now.  Candle sticks, tea pots, trays, tea sets, serving dishes,
you name it!  And at very affordable prices. 

Vintage luggage is really in style right now and make great display pieces!  In addition to stacking them for display, you can store things in them!  We have about four really neat pieces in stock right now.

Lots of vintage garden tools, a fabulous mosaic bird bath or plant stand, plant markers
and a great vintage metal gardening table await you in the Loft! 

This weekend was extra special at The Secret Garden!

A portion of all sales benefited the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure!

Sweet Cakes Events was there with the most fabulous desserts!!   Cupcakes, lemon cookies,
chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter cookes and more!  These girls know how to bake!
If you have a special event, party or wedding coming up you'll want to give them a call!

Are these cute or what?!   Little pink icing ribbons adorned their cupcakes
on top of white buttercream frosting.  I had way too many of these....

Alexis and Austin helped sell pink lemonade to raise money for the cause!

Larry Lyons entertained everyone with his beautiful
singing & guitar playing!

The Secret Garden is a little heaven on earth!
For all of your outdoor decorating needs,
bird baths, bird feeders, flower pots, and more!

Beautiful fountains for your patio and deck!

Garden Time!

This is such a neat table for someone's garden area or garden shed!  Heavy duty metal table with character and charm is a mixture of green and orange and has a nice sized drawer in the front to put your gardening tools in.  We also have a nice selection right now of vintage gardening tools to decorate with (or to actually use!)   And if you like marking your plants, we have some beautiful ceramic garden markers.

For those who like the unusual, we have a pair of beautiful elephant wall sconces, a metal sun and a vintage brass eagle door knocker.

This is such a neat little wooden vintage chair!  It has the woven seat area and is in good vintage condition.  It sits on a large tack box rescued from an estate sale that boarded horses.

On a beautiful vintage cabinet sits a wonderful cast iron horse farm set!  It has the barn, sheep, rooster, cow and assorted animals.  Really neat set and very rustic looking!

This is just gorgeous!  A small table with an elegant marble top and ornate brass stand. 
 Purchased at an estate sale. 

Two fabulous pieces of pottery that you can get for a fraction of their original cost!
Beautiful Southwest artwork.

Large heavy duty wooden cutting board will not only serve a purpose but also look great on your counter.
Very country looking!   And check out this large vintage brown pottery bowl! 
Wouldn't this look
great full of fruit on your table this summer,
full of gourds this fall and full of
pine spriggs and a candle this winter?

Fabulous floral china tray!  Very shabby chick looking!  So many uses... fill with decorative soaps in your guest bathroom, serve small desserts on for lunch, keep jewelry in on your dresser...
the list is endless!!

These old watering cans are extremely collectible anymore!  They look great on a shelf on the fence
or hanging from hooks, or even full of a bouquet of flowers on an outdoor table!

Neat retro black rotary telephone works like a charm!
Unusual pottery urn has an elephant on each side - simply fabulous!
Extra large green metal dish would look great with a large gorgeous flower
arrangement inside.  Feeling creative?...

Just in Time for Summer!!

Just in time for summer I found these two fabulous Vintage Adirondack Chairs!  I painted them pale yellow like a cool glass of lemonade.  In the center is a neat vintage magazine table that's painted leaf green.  (gotta have someplace to sit that glass of lemonade right?)  These would look gorgeous sitting on your porch!  Just sit back and chill with a good book while that summer breeze comes by...

We've got all kinds of neat things from estate sales lately!  Wooden fish, beautiful silver pieces, vintage vanity chairs & tables, mirrors...  There's sure to be something you'll just have to have!

This hat is from the Jackie O period!  In GREAT condition.  Even has the original hat box! 

This was an unusual item we had the pleasure of buying this week!  A custom made extra large floral arrangement.  It was originally $200!   Yours for only $55.00!! 

If you're a tea drinker you might be interested in this very unusual set.  Purchased at an estate sale.  The tea pot, sugar bowl and creamer all have a rounded design.  Creamer and sugar are oversized.  Very unique set!

Large vintage Balloon Sailing sign would look great and add character to any room.  Gorgeous silver tea set with matching tray is sure to impress at your next Tea Party!  This vintage red table is a new item this week. 

We add new items every week, so stop by frequently so you don't miss out on something wonderful!

New Moondog Loft at the Secret Garden in Waynesville, Ohio!

Moondog Cottage has done so well that we've expanded into the barn at the Secret Garden!  So now when you stop in I hope you will visit the new Moondog Loft for fabulous vintage items in addition to Moondog Cottage!

One of the wonderful items there now is this vintage set of five yard frogs!  Aren't they adorable?  One plays the saxophone, one strums a bass and the others are ready for yard work.  They sit on a nice southwest designed table bought at an estate sale.

This beautiful vintage black iron table set reminds me of Breakfast at Tiffany's for some reason.
Nice set has two matching chairs and a glass top.  Only $80!!

Are you a tea drinker?  Wouldn't this lovely tea set impress the ladies at your next get together?  Tray, tea pot, creamer and sugar bowl only $25.00!

I couldn't pass up this beautiful Madonna that was at an estate sale.  Pale yellow dress.  I've draped a rhinestone necklace around her.  She's in vintage condition, but I think that's what gives her a Shabby Chick look!   She sits in front of a beautiful green table with vintage cream handles on each side of the top for an ecclectic look.  Table only $65.00!

Isn't this camel back trunk beautiful?  Detailed silver metal inlays mixed with wood and leather.
Would add character to any room and a neat hide-a-way storage place!  Only $65.00!

Neat three dimensional signs!  One of a hot air balloon and the other advertising The Blue Dolphin Inn. 

Come and see us soon!  We add new vintage and shabby chick items weekly!  If you ever have any questions or are looking for something special please email me at !
