Welcome to Little Cottage Link Party #67! Happy Labor Day! I hope everyone had a productive long weekend. I’m planning to start putting out my fall decorations today. What have you been working on lately? Here’s what I did last week:
The girls and I tie dyed some sweatsuits at the beginning of the pandemic. However, I only made myself a sweatshirt. I went back and added a matching pair of sweatpants and embellished my sweatshirt with a hand painted palmetto tree. Now I have my own Palmetto Tree Tie Dye Sweatsuit.
Narrowing the Focus of My Blog
I also decided to narrow the focus of my blog towards hand painting with acrylics. I added a paint palette to my logo and changed my menu. Although my old posts on varied topics such as decor, cooking, homeschooling, Christian living, vintage dishes, travel, and sewing (whew, that’s a lot) are still here on the blog, I plan to concentrate on acrylic painting projects in the future. I think it will be easier to do one thing well rather than spread myself thin in the pursuit of many different things. I’m a former public school kindergarten teacher, so I love working within a theme. If you’ve ever decided to narrow the focus of your blog, I’d love to hear from you!
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 perfect fall dessert recipe from Cindy. She has great seasonal recipe ideas.
What can I say about my next feature? Naush could turn a sow’s ear into a silk purse with her upcycling creativity. Her post was also the Most Clicked.
If you like to crochet, you’re going love this grouping of apple crochet patterns.
In the last feature, Claire combined two of my favorite things; sweater crafts and acorns. The waffle texture looks great as an acorn top.
