Beverly's Profile

About

Welcome to my Etsy shop! I love making candles and have been doing so since 1998. Hollyhock Cottage came about in 2000. The name comes from my love of cottages, hollyhocks, white picket fences, and lovely things.

I'm Midwest born and raised and love the different seasons. Sometimes it's a bit cold for me in the winter, but I chose to come back here even after living in warmer places like Florida and Oklahoma, so I must really love it. Having four distinct seasons is wonderful. Growing up, summer vacations were mostly to Alabama, where my mother is from, so the South seems to be a part of me. I'm a former homeschooler of 12 years (daughter graduated in 2011), so I have a heart for anyone doing that. I've been blessed to be Grandma to five, but they all live in Oklahoma, so don't get to see them very often.

My collections include creamers and dishes of all kinds, but I prefer to use them and not just collect them. I love finding new and interesting gift shops and antique stores to browse with my sister. Favorite style is cottage style although there are some country and prim things I also like.

I'm tickled pink that you stopped by--and I do love pink! I hope that you come back again to see what's new.

Blessings...
