Hey everyone! It’s finally March. Welcome to Little Cottage Link Party #41! Softball began for our girls, so I attended a few college games and a travel ball practice this past week. I still managed to get a few posts done. Here’s what I wrote about last week:
I styled a Spring Mantel and Fireplace in our family room.
I used my Pioneer Woman serveware collection to create a Pioneer Woman Coffee Station and Sign.
Try New Things
Also, as part of this party, I plan to try a craft, decor idea, or recipe from a fellow blogger each week, as time permits. I don’t want to write a separate post about my experiments though, because my 11 year-old daughter doesn’t like it when we have to stop and take pictures. For her, it takes the fun out of trying new things. This week we made Christmas Tree Pizza Pull Apart, (adapted for spring) from Marilyns Treats. I tried to make a chicken and and egg-shaped pizza. Marilyn’s tree definitely looked better. We had fun though, and the pizza was good. I think I was supposed to put the pizza balls closer together.
The Little Cottage Link Party is open from Monday, 9am EST, through Thursday, 9am EST (I’m leaving the party open a day longer this year). My goal for this link party is to help myself and others thrive in the home. I’ve spent the last two decades raising five homeschooled children in a beautiful little cottage in the South Carolina Lowcountry. In my opinion, the home is the most important place on earth. It doesn’t matter if you’re married, single, empty-nesting, or raising a large family-your home can still be a refreshing oasis of love and beauty to those who enter.
Time for the Features!
The first feature today is a set of bench cushions made from rugs bought at the Target Dollar Spot. What a great idea!
I was fascinated by this post about mason bees, and how to sustain them. I love watching the birds and bees on my outdoor walks. Who knew bees needed to stand on something while drinking?
Chloe created a gorgeous table for St. Patrick’s Day. Her golden-swathed goblets, Celtic knot tidbit plates, and variety of white flowers bring class to this holiday’s decor.
This berry tart looks great! I’m definitely trying it this week!
Ann did a terrific job upcycling this little table. The stenciling and decoupage raised the piece to a whole new level of beauty.
My last feature highlights the things Debbie found on her shopping trip for spring. I love to see what people buy on clearance, and at thrift stores. Also, Debbie’s writing is so warm and personal, I feel like I know her.
