The 56th annual Woman’s Association Cottage Tour and Bazaar takes place on Friday, July 19, on the Assembly grounds. Cottages on the tour this year include Twin Oaks (#167), Memphis Home (#72), Hillside Rest (#135), Reunion (#118), Nearview (#50), and Full Circle (#116). The Bazaar runs from 9 a.m.–4 p.m., with the Cottage Tour available from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
This year’s Tour lecture will be “Modern Traditions: Mixing Old & New In Your Home,” with Paige Albright. With her keen eye for antique pieces and a particular specialty in Oriental rugs, Albright works in residential interior design and runs a shop in Mountain Brook Village in Birmingham, Ala. Among her talents is the ability to generally evaluate a rug’s value by sight. Attendees of the Cottage Tour are welcome to attend her 1 p.m. lecture in Warren Chapel. Tour tickets are available in advance at the MSSA Office.
