About Us

Welcome to A Joyful Cottage Shop.

I'm Nancy Reinke, lover of all things cottage and author of A Joyful Cottage blog. Since 2012 I've been writing about cottage architecture, interior design and cottage gardens. In 2015 my husband Dennis and I designed the cottage where we now live and work. Did I say work? It hardly feels like work to us. We love what we do.  Each day is a gift from God that allows us to joyfully create beautiful art and decorative items for our cottage and the homes of others.

I'm a fiber artisan, furniture refinisher/restyler, and purveyor of cottage accessories. Dennis is a painter, sculptor and partners with me in creating unique cottage furnishings. A Joyful Cottage online shop is an extension of our home-based creative business. We're excited to bring our artistry to you through the wonder of the internet. We'll be adding new products all the time. If you're looking for something that we don't have in the Shop, or have any questions, please email me at ajoyfulcottage@gmail.com.

We'd love to hear from you.
