In NY: Sandra Foster and A Twee Catskills Victorian Cabin



Photo by Trevor Tondro for The New York Times

I read Joyce Wadler's feature on us.
I laughed!  I cried!
I didn't recognize my life.  It's different when you're cleaning the coop.

Trevor Tondro's photographs are...beyond words.  Spellbinding.
I just left him alone and he waved his magic wand of a camera.

Please have a look at the story!

In the Catskills, Comfort in a Gingerbread House

I'm delighted the Times mentioned a few of my pretty handmade wares
from talented artists.  Though I gave names and links for everything in sight,
not everything made it in (including the URL for my blog)!
Today, someone asked how to ‘get the look’.
The short answer: buy handmade, buy salvage.

Here is a complete listing:

Vintage-inspired printed paper book covers under the mirror
and wallpaper painting in the loft – artist Beth Neumann of Tattered Vintage

Pink sachet with silk roses and rhinestone brooch – Roberta Comeau,
Whispers From the Past.   No web presence but I can put you in touch with her.

Demi-lune table under mirror – Andes Antiques & Art,
173 Main Street, Andes, NY 13731 845-676-3420
Email: popperartsy2@aol.com

Oval mirror over mantel – Vintage Chic

Architectural inspiration – Driving around the Catskills,
and the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company

 The Small House Society

Miscellaneous:  My handmade linen dress was $2 at a yard sale,
my pink wellies were $30 on clearance at Tractor Supply,
$2/yard Wal-Mart lace graces the loft,
and I made ZuZu’s hair bows out of wired organza ribbon from Michael’s.

Obviously, we have excellent yard sales in the Delhi-Bovina-Andes area.
If you're up one Saturday, treat yourself to lunch at these restaurants:

Crossroads Café, Rt. 28 & Rt. 10 (Main Street), Delhi, NY – art on the walls, coffee bar,
WiFi, sweet staff, old New Yorkers in the magazine rack, open year round. 607-746-7007

Russell’s, Main Street, Bovina, NY – eggs sandwiches from local hens, market.

Lucky Dog – Main Street, Hamden. Café, organic food, antiques.

Great shops offering recycled wares:

Clementine Vintage Clothing - 7 Main St, Andes, NY, 13731. (845) 676-3888

Steinway Books – 114 Main St., Delhi, NY  (845) 746-8060.  Now featuring a café.


Until next time, stay shabby!

Diana Strinati Baur said...

Hi, Sandy,

I found you this morning via the New York Times. Your project and your story touched me immediately and I went to see if you have a blog. I am dazzled by your creativity and your gift for synthesizing beauty out of the tips of your fingers. I love it when a news outlet like the NYT discovers someone extraordinary and I think that your story has aspects that touch all of us in one way or another. For me it is the overcoming of huge obstacles, obstacles that can cause a person to remain frozen in fear forever - and pushing and shoving until a pearl of unparalleled beauty emerges. Oh, yes, that's a true, true feat. I wish you congratulations and many fantastic, creative endeavors.

Greetings from my hill in Italy.

Sharon~heartsongs said...

The article was great. I'm so impressed by what you've done! I would love to have a little cottage like your studio.
You have don't such a great job! I love your blog and I appreciate that you alway answer my emails.
Thanks!

Shabbyfufu said...

Sandy, I received your all contacts email and I THANK YOU for letting me know about your wonderful news! Everything is just so gorgeous in your petite studio, as well as the surroundings. I was so touched by your NY Times story, and wish you much success in any of your future endeavors. ~xo~ Janet

Natasha said...

Oh wow! Your article and studio are being featured on Yahoo's front page! Congratulations again!

Victoria said...

I came back to say the same thing the above comment said...I went to check my mail and your story was the front page of Yahoo!!! You're famous!

Crystal said...

Sandy, I was so excited when I came home this evening and there you were on my Yahoo page!!! I yelled and told my daughter! I hope you have yahoo and were able to see yourself....I'm so excited for you ......yaaaaaayyyyy!!!!

Karen Valentine said...

A friend of mine just sent me a link to your blog and article. My mouth was open for a good five minutes! That must be what heaven is like. The cottage, and the decor is beyond words, and to top it all off the surrounding woods could not be more perfect! Congrats on the article, I'm sure it was just thrilling for you!

Life In My Nest said...

Sandy -- what an inspiration you are! I just discovered your blog this morning through another and have posted about your undertaking on my blog. I have wanted to convert a little building too, but mine is not even here yet! Now I know I will be working feverishly to get to that point. I'm inspired -- my husband probably not so much . . . I don't think I could do all the restoration that you did without him. Fantastic job! I'm sure I'll be a frequent visitor.

Ceekay- Thinkin of Home said...

I cannot believe this! I am so excited. My husband came home from work and brought up your studio on line for me to see. I was in love and told him, I want one. He said, honey, if I could I would get you one. Then this morning my blogging friend told me to check your blog....and it was you! I will definately add you to my blogroll....your studio is fantastic. Can't wait to spend time and read through your blog!

I thought I had done something to offend you by posting a picture of your bedroom( I did link it back to your blog)and was feeling bad that I was so offensive that I had to be blocked from your blog. I am so happy to find out the real reason. Congratulations on the feature story. You have an amazing cottage and a real talent for decorating. Keep being shabby, I will be back often for inspiration. xxoo

Your little streamside studio is such a labor of love, thank you for sharing it with us. Congratulations, you're very deserving of this! Big Hugs, Debbie @ Cottage Hann~Me~Downs

Congrats on the wonderful article... it's how I found you. :-) And the link to your blog was in the left sidebar on page 2 of the article, a little buried, but I found it. I admire your talent, your tenacity, and your zest for life. From one country girl to another.... have a wonderful day!

Stephanie ~ Angelic Accents said...

Congratulations, Sandy! Well deserved accolades for you and hubby and Zuzu! Funny thing, my daughter saw a blurb about your cottage on aol and sent me the link, never knowing that I've been following you for so long and last week saw Fifi's post about your charming studio. Everything you touch is just magical!

Big TX Hugs,

PhotoGirl said...

Oh my gosh,you have a blog! I went back to the NYT article to look at the photos (yet again) and I found the link. Fabulous!
What a wonderful eye you have. Rachel Ashwell herself might learn a thing or two from you.
I am VERY impressed with how you did nearly everything yourself; I was motivated to stop whining, get up off my duff, and assemble a table that's been languishing in the Ikea box for a month! Thank you for the inspiration. Vous avez vraiment du style.

Suzanne MacCrone said...

Hi Sandy,

I am so glad that I found your blog. I had no idea you even had one. All my friends and family have been sending me links to your NY Times article and I read that Fifi and Dan are doing a story on you too. Last year they were at my home and did a story about our home.

You have inspired me to re-furbish my 1920's pool house ~ by myself! I'm ready with my tools!

We have some mutual friends. If you have a moment stop by and say hello. Love your story.

Ciao,
Suzanne

Adeline Country Cottage said...

Dear Sandy,
Thank you so much for your beautiful, inspirational tiny Victorian cottage!
My husband and I are restoring and renovating a lovely old Victorian home in Michigan, that was built in 1887.
When I saw the lovely Victorian architectural elements that you incorporated in your cottage design(matching window headers, porch brackets, matching back porch screen doors, etc...) I thought that they would blend perfectly with the existing Victorian elements that have managed to survive in this beautiful old home.
I began searching for your architectural elements as handcrafted Victorian reproductions, but alas, can not seem to locate the artist / manufacturer.
Could you please let me know where I might be able to find the artist or company that manufactured your lovely architectural elements that you used in your tiny Victorian cottage?
Thank you so very much!
Warmest Regards,
Marcella, Michigan
