ON Cottage Way came about many years ago, because of my love of all art mediums. My hands just have to keep busy. I made so many things, we were going to pushed out of our home by the piles of completed projects. I began at that point to set up a retail space at craft shows. I needed a name for my vendor's space and after much debate,
ON Cottage Way was created.
Now, my husband and I live in a original Ontario Cottage, that as far as we can determine was built in the mid 1800's . This styleof home is often called an Ontario Cottage Style or Regency Cottage. So - ON is the abbreviation of Ontario, Cottage from the style of our beloved little home and Way - as a substitute for Style. Thus - ON Cottage Way.
Ours is a quaint little house in the midst of a lakeside town in Ontario. In this little house I have raised my sons and now enjoy my young Grandchildren, enjoyed my dogs, created a cottage garden that I love to pieces and is a forever ongoing project, and crafted to my hearts content.
Over the years I have drawn, painted, made anything and everything possible on a sewing machine, purchased and learned to use power tools for wood craft products, I knit and crochet, weave rag rugs, etc. etc. etc.
After my years of craft shows, I started on Ebay. Then graduated to Etsy. I love Etsy - so easy to use, so easy to shop and wonderful handmade products. I am just now trying to get my Etsy shop up and running.

Please drop around and visit sometime.
I also love to cook - sooner or later I will include recipes on this blog. Most that have come about as being created simply by whatever I happened to have in the house.
