Welcome to Little Cottage Link Party #68. Is everyone ready for fall? Sometimes I don’t want to stop working on projects and do the the things I need to do, like clean the house and decorate for autumn. Today is the day though- carpe dieum! After I post this party I’m going to take control of my house. Here’s what I did last week:
I also made a Vimeo video for the post. Videos are fun to make, but very time consuming. This time I chose the template that uses little circles to go to the next segment of the video. If you’ve been using videos lately, I’d love to hear about it.
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 simple post about a woman taking time to peruse a few books for reflection and inspiration. What can I say? I am one of Sherry’s followers now. Let me also add the following note: I pin all of the features on the Little Cottage Link Party Pinterest board. I often go to that board to find directions for a project, book recommendations, or recipes that I liked. Although I only grow flowers in beds and containers, I would love to have the My Garden Record Book pictured below.
Linda belongs to a Facebook group named #dailycreating ran by Creative Encourager, Terry Runyon. I like the idea of creatively encouraging others and Linda’s rooster drawing.
Claire’s Cauliflower Brains and Popcorn Brains with Maggots are perfect for Halloween! Pop into her blog for all the recipes pictured below. I made a Very Scary Red Velvet Birthday Cake last year for my son. I was afraid to make it in a brain shape because my youngest daughter said she could never eat a cake like that. If it looks too gross to eat, you know you did a good job!
When I saw the screws in Frankenstein’s head and the gauze on the mummy, I was just done. Claire has a great technique of dipping the corks in diluted paint before she embellishes them.
