This item was made exclusively for my niece who is getting married in September. I needed it quickly and Madeline produced AND shipped it in the same day! I'm so pleased with her product, fast production and shipment and would highly recommend to anyone.

It seems appropriate to be working on Memorial Day to finish a fundraising order for a group that provides service dogs for Military Veterans!

My shop is a reflection of my loves, my life experiences, and my spirit.

I am a retired Realtor, jewelry maker, mother of three, grandmother of five, and wife of my best friend and soul mate. We live on the east coast of South Florida with our adopted racing greyhound.

I extend a 100% satisfaction guarantee, in writing, on all my items because I care a lot more about the happiness of my customers (and friends!) than I do about a single financial transaction.

So, how did this shop evolve? How do I select my images?

When we retired, we moved to Florida's Treasure Coast where the seaside has become one of our favorite places to visit. You will see the inspiration of the sea in many of my images.

I love working in my little garden and almost all of the flowers you see in my images are flowers I have grown and then captured on film ... well, digital "film."

I have been a bird lover since my dad gave me my first "Golden Book of Birds" when I was a little girl. If you stay in my shop for more than five minutes, you will detect my love of birds ... and the camera!

Almost three years ago, we lost the greyhound who started our greyhound journey. Her loss inspired me to make a pendant with her image to keep her close to my heart. That pendant has grown into a very large part of my shop. The stories and the love I hear about on an almost daily basis inspire me to get better and better at making these pendants that become priceless to those of us who hold our animals in a very special part of our hearts, even when they are gone from our lives.

Please step into Horizon Cottage and take a look around. If you don't see what you're looking for, let me know. My custom work, using your own images, has become the biggest part of Horizon Cottage. If you can think it up, I can probably put it in a pendant ... or key chain, or backpack clip, or purse clip, or purse clip, or book bag clip, or bookmark, or a pin ... well, you get the idea! The only limit is your imagination!

Thank you for shopping at Horizon Cottage. You will find me very easy to work with and eager to please!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
I accept PayPal as well as Etsy's Direct CheckOut. If you need a different method, just convo and I'll see what I can do.

We charge the appropriate sales tax in Florida determined by your zip code. We don't collect sales tax for other states or countries.
I combine shipping on multiple items so you save on quantity.

I've added expedited shipping upgrades to all of my items - you will see your options at checkout.

I will ship your item to your registered Etsy or PayPal address, so please be sure that your address is up-to-date. I ship first class from my home in Florida six days a week so you may expect your item very quickly if you are in the U.S.


I ship internationally and I try to keep track of when my orders are received by asking each purchaser to let me know when their order arrives. Over the past few years, I have noticed that international shipment is erratic. There are no guarantees on arrival date. I have had items reach China, Australia, and London in less than two weeks and I have had items going to Canada take from 1 week to EIGHT weeks. So, please be aware that I have no control over how long the delivery takes. I'd love to be able to guarantee super-fast delivery but this just isn't possible.

Having said all of that, my delivery estimate is from TWO to EIGHT WEEKS. After eight weeks, we will consider the item lost and I will re-send either the exact same item or an agreed-upon replacement. You may also opt for a refund after the claim has been filed with the Postal Service.

Customs Fees and Other Possible Charges: To my knowledge this has never happened to any of my customers but I have read that occasionally a package will arrive at its destination with additional fees tagged on. These are not consistent and not set in stone in any country as far as I can find - and I have done extensive research on the subject. So, I will have to leave it up to you, the purchaser, to decide if your country will add any additional fees to your package when you purchase from my shop or any shop in the United States. I am unable to reimburse you for any fees that may arise after I make the shipment.

Please Note: I am prohibited by law from changing the value of the item purchased on my customs form.
Refunds and Exchanges
Horizon Cottage offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee. You will receive this guarantee in writing with your item(s). If you are unhappy for any reason, I will refund your full purchase price immediately upon receipt of your returned item. No questions asked!
Additional policies and FAQs
I would appreciate positive feedback on your transaction. I am very proud of my five-star rating and I will work hard to make sure that I am five-star-worthy in your estimation! :o) Enjoy!
