About me

Location DeKalb, Illinolis, United States
Introduction I'm the owner and Chief Tartisan, along with my husband, Pert, of Cozy Cottage Scents. We hand craft scented wax tarts and also sell electric tart melters. We blend 80% of the 300 scents we carry. That means our pumpkin is a bit creamier, our grapefruit has more kick, out apple is crisper! I also happen to have a makeup addiction and buy more than I could every use. Hope you visit both of my blogs. One is about the life of a Tartisan and not very updated but my Beauty Bag Sale is very current.
Interests Original sepia wedding photos, red glass, elegant and flowy bedding, serving platters, cook books, hand made Amish quilts, vintage posters and blending scents. I suppose I should mention makeup, skin care, shoes, embroidered jean jackets, white button down shirts and Gevalia coffee but I love my Keurig!
Favorite Movies Gone With The Wind and Dr. Zhivago
Favorite Music I was in college in the 70s - Rolling Stones, Led Zepplin, Tina Turner, Tom Petty, to name a few. I like Country, too, in small doses. Classic if I'm in the mood. Jazz, mmm, not so much. Motown is always good.
Favorite Books Too many to list. A student of Tolstoy, Hemmingway and Fitzgerald. Have no use for Shakespeare. My favorite genre, though, is in the style of Agatha Chritie and her Miss Marple character, British cozies are the are often referred to. Have read every Sherlock Holmes too and Lord Peter, Hamish MacBeth and love Joe Coffin Series by Gwendolyn Butler. And read the Kent Family Chronicles three times. Love anything from the American Revolution period.
