Re-post from June 2015


Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. I’m so happy to see you today my friend. Shall we have a little tea.

Of course I’m hoping your week was filled with lots of JoY….yes, that’s what I am hoping for you. Mine was busy, fun, and continues to feel a little bittersweet….

Busy part:  I continued packing. Fun part:  I finally bought a new purse. Well, okay I actually bought two. (grin) 


Bittersweet:  a keen awareness that I am really getting ready to say good-bye to this sweet little cottage, friends & family… in my long time state of  sunny California.

And, depending on what day you are reading this post…depends on where I am.

Very likely I’m either on my way to our new/old home, or perhaps already there.

I plan on returning one last time to southern California to finalize a few things…say more good-byes, and crymyeyesout.

For the most part everything is clearned out in that sweet little once upon my story book cottage, and I’m ready to live along the coast of the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I am looking forward  to sharing my new adventurous journey.

I am also excited to experience this next chapter of life. It’s been a decision that’s taken me many years to make. But, I’m very clear about it. I can see where I have been on my own six-decade journey, and feel blessed beyond belief that I am now at a stage when I’m free to choose the things that  I’ve been preparing for. I hope you will continue stopping by for a visit. I would of course miss you if you forget me, since you have been the inspiration behind my inspiration. So thank you. There will be a different way to visit. I’m hoping to go live with my new blog on July 1st.

It’s got a new name Marcia’s Cottage by the Sea. The new website is still currently under construction, however it should be up and running by then.

So..…until we meet again stay safe my sweet friend.



I’m thinking I sort of went “What I wear” vlog crazy this past week….(grin)


Here’s a perennial favorite with all ages. Here’s a basic recipe. You could also try chunky chocolate chip cookies instead of plain chocolate, or use one or more different ice creams. whatever takes your fancy.


2 pints vanilla ice cream, slightly softened

16 large (about 3 1/2 inches in diameter) chocolate cookies

1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Spread 1/2 cup of the ice cream over the bottom of one cookie and top with another cookie, right side up. Place on a small baking sheet in the freezer and repeat with the remaining cookies and ice cream.

2. Spread the chocolate chips on a plate. Roll each ice cream sandwich in the chips to coat the sides. Wrap the sandwiches individually in plastic wrap and freeze for 2 hours, or until firm, before serving. Serves 8


oops…here’s one more! I bought a new outfit, and TWO new purses!

    I read this twice…..when we talked in person and you told me about your moving permanently to Oregon, I didn’t realize how you really felt. Oh my goodness, when you said you were crying your eyes out….it brought tears to me!!!!! I am sure it was so hard to leave everything and everyone you knew behind. Having Joe and Cami is home and I am sure this is how you adjusted! You are living in heaven , so it is the best decision!!!!!!
