Cottage Joy is a hand painted watercolor fabric collection from Shannon Christensen that was inspired by an 1854 hymn that we sing today. Even after 164 years, the words have a timeless truth. In the cottage there is joy, when there is love at home. Love in our hearts and homes has always been needed, but even more so today. It does not matter if our homes are cottages or castles, we have a charge to fill them with as much love as possible. A garden filled with flowers is symbolic of the beauty that can be ours when there is love at home.
