Welcome to Little Cottage Link Party #47! I hope everyone had a good week. We’re hanging in there, wearing masks and keeping a proper social distance. It was a very strange Easter, but God is still on the throne, and he already knows what is going to happen. I spent lots of time working in my ETSY shop this week and making masks. I did have time to complete one painting tutorial:
I know spring has arrived when I see lavender-colored wisteria blooms in the wooded lots of my neighborhood. This little 6″ pot was fun and easy! Read Paint a Wisteria Flower Pot to make your own.
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!
*I usually pick 4 features, but this week was so amazing, I picked 7.
My first feature is an oldie, but a goodie! I can’t wait to try Marilyn’s classic brownie recipe. I may whip some up tonight and show my kids what real brownies taste like.
Andrea made the cutest Easter Tiered Tray. I love the bunny’s hat on the top shelf. She’s right; Easter is not cancelled!
If you don’t know Claire from Pillar Box Blue, you should. She creates a map upcycle post on a weekly basis. I’m always amazed at her ideas for using maps and map prints. Look at this footstool:
There sure are some creative crochet bloggers out there. Maya says she has a Bohemian heart. The artist in me loves colorful Boho items, and these little crochet egg holders in different colors are just gorgeous.
Claire has 5 great ideas in her upcycle garden post. I need to spend some time in the yard trying her suggestions! She had me at Jeans Flower Pot.
I prefer “hello” signs when it comes to seasons and holidays-you can tell from my ETSY shop. Jenn’s sign is made from chipboard letters, Modge Podge, and wrapping paper. Crafts can be overwhelming at times, but her “hello spring” sign looks fun to make.
It’s hard for me to resist a good needlecraft! Julie’s linen fabric and hand stitching combine to make some amazing birds.
