Welcome to Little Cottage Link Party #56! I hope everyone had a great Father’s Day! I saw my dad this past Thursday. It was the first time we’d seen him since the lockdown began. Yesterday, we took my husband out to eat and enjoyed celebrating Father’s Day with him. I also had time to complete a special project:
The humble pansy has made a comeback. The pansy has been a popular motif on clothing and home decor items lately. I haven’t seen so many pansy items since I was in elementary school in the 1970s. Take a look at my Customized Pansy Floral Painted Sneakers post or pop in to my ETSY Store.
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 posts were so impressive this week! I could have chosen 8, or even 10 features. It was difficult, but I narrowed them down to 6.
My first feature is a great idea from Kippi. She is offering craft classes online. I would love to teach online painting classes someday. Pop into Kippi’s blog for the details!
Beth created the perfect summer tablescape. I adore those Fiesta Lemongrass plates!
Linda’s post was fun and useful. I love textured soap, so her project was right up my alley.
This time of year is special to me because I’m a fan of Americana decor. Tiffany’s patriotic display looks vintage even though most of her items were bought recently. Love it!
Mel’s mason jar craft was gorgeous and informative. Not only did she explain the history of the Mason/Ball jar, she told her readers which glue to use to attach hardware to glass. I will definitely be revisiting this post in the future.
Pat loves to travel, but she also knows how to cook. Take a look at her savory Tomato, Zucchini and Cheese Pie!
