Welcome to Little Cottage Link Party #66! It’s almost September and I am so glad. Fall and the Christmas season are so much fun for bloggers! Here’s what I made the last week of August:
I’m teaching my first painting class at a local painting studio this month. The store owner wanted me do something with a palm tree. I chose a Palm and Moon Candle Holder with a palmetto tree and crescent moon like the South Carolina flag. The store owner added the nifty rope tie.
I have a friend who works in a long term memory care unit. She was given the task of decorating a screened-in porch and outdoor sitting area. She found a vintage mauve watering can and hired me to paint sunflowers on it. I wouldn’t have thought to paint orange, yellow, and red flowers on a mauve watering can, but I liked her Autumn Sunflowers Watering Can so much I painted one for 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!
My first feature is a fall candle from Chas. It is simple, gorgeous, and creative- a great combination of traits to have in a craft.
Beth always creates a nice tablescape, but her Royal Albert Old Country Roses china tablescape is amazing to behold.
Ann took a legless chair, gave it a fabulous paint job, then converted it into a swing. I would love to have that in my yard! Her project is definitely pinned for the future.
If you’re looking for something easy and different to make for dinner, try burrito bowls. I made them last week and everyone found things they liked to build their own bowls. Thanks, Niky!
Bonus Halloween Feature
This blogger (I cannot find her name anywhere) added three Halloween crochet items to the party this week. She is planning to make a crochet Halloween village. How fun is that?
