An open house and grand reopening of Sage Cottage in Adairsville is set for Saturday, Aug. 10, from 2 until 9 p.m. Noreen Wiseman has purchased the events center/bed and breakfast near Barnsley Gardens from Jim and Sharon Southerland. The landmark had been up for sale since October 2017. The cottage sits on 12.5 acres at 97 Ward Mountain Road, just off Barnsley Gardens Road and Hall Station Road southwest of Adairsville. It offers five bedrooms, three full baths and five half-baths. In addition to the sleeping and common areas, the campus features a meeting room, dining hall, full commercial kitchen, an outdoor pavilion and plenty of outdoor sitting areas.
Create DIY Workshop opens this weekend: Candra Hardy and Dede Florence are combining creative skills, Pinterest concepts and the tools and space you need to open a do-it-yourself craft shop at West End Commons at 650 Henderson Drive (Suite 106-B) in Cartersville. A grand opening is set for 7 p.m. Friday, July 19, with regular hours starting Saturday (more below). Here’s how they describe the workshop:
“Our business is a Pinterest-inspired event space where we provide you all the tools and instruction needed to complete on-trend home decor pieces in a fun environment with friends. Wood sign workshops are weekly; however, we also offer workshops making chunky hand knit blankets, canvas pillows, blanket ladders and also kid themed workshops. The space will be available to book private workshop parties for bridal showers, adult and kid birthdays and other special occasions.”
Hours: Wednesday 11 a.m.-6 p.m.; Thursday through Saturday, 11 a.m.-9 p.m. and Sundays by reservation. On Facebook.
