Hello everyone! Welcome to Little Cottage Link Party #70. I can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to lately. We had a new drainfield installed here at the Little Cottage. Coastal South Carolina is called the Lowcountry for a reason. Drainage problems abound here in our 50 year-old neighborhood. The men came with a Bobcat tractor early in the morning. They were gone about an hour before lunch. I couldn’t believe that was all there was to it.
I took the above picture through the new window screens we bought with the stimulus we received in the spring. Hopefully my backyard won’t be soggy anymore and we can install french doors in my dining room that will someday lead out to a fabulous patio. A girl can dream, right? For now, I’ll just drink coffee in my new wicker egg chair on the side porch. I did have time to churn out a few posts last week as well:
I had some wooden owl and pumpkin shapes left over from last year and wanted to use them. Now I have Splatter Paint Halloween Plant Pokes accenting the fall plants on my front steps.
“Hey Boo” is a perfect greeting for Halloween. I experimented with acrylic pour for the background, then added the details with paint brushes.
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!
Linda combined an autumn plaid with Blackberry Bliss to create a gorgeous color combination for her “blessed” card.
This gilded acorn is absolutely beautiful. Can you guess what materials Mel used to make it? Take a guess then pop into her blog to find out. I have to say, I was surprised.
I’ve never used an el wire before, but Claire’s neon pink illumination looks spooky in a good way.
I have four unmarried daughters. If any of them happen to get married in October, I hope I can remember to make Lisa’s Spooky S’mores as wedding favors for the guests!
When I first saw this post, I wondered how Lisa was going to lift her concrete pumpkins. After reading about her process, I realized that she brushed a concrete mixture over foam dollar store pumpkins. Bloggers are definitely the most creative people in the world!
Michele always has good, creative ideas. Her $4 Halloween light was no exception. I used Dollar Tree’s chains for my Charles Dicken’s A Christmas Carol tree. Why didn’t I think of using the chains for Halloween?
