Welcome to Little Cottage Link Party #72! I hope everyone had a great week. We finally finished a brick pathway that we’d been meaning to complete all summer and washed our windows and blinds. Washing blinds is never fun. Luckily, two were broken and I threw them away instead of laborously cleaning them.
I also ordered a ceramic Victorian lady’s matchstick holder boot from Ebay. Most of the sellers on Ebay have them listed as flower vases. My grandmother took ceramic classes in the 1970s and had her boot on the hearth. If you’re a grandparent today, rest assured that you matter. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about my two awesome grandmas.
I still had time to complete a few posts last week:
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!
I’ve been a fan of Debbee’s wreaths and tablescapes for a long time. She has an impressive dish collection and a creative eye.
I am a sucker for Primitive Folk Art, especially when it comes to Halloween and Christmas. I wouldn’t want to run into these two pumpkins on a dark, scary night!
My hat goes off to anyone who makes awesome Halloween cookies from meringue! One drop of water and the meringue is SPOOKED.
I’m going to try this recipe along with my ham and macaroni dinner tonight! I’ve never come across a recipe for pumpkin cornbread before. She had me at Light and Moist.
Jasmine gives step-by-step instructions for making a fun clay pumpkin patch.
I have this big squash on my table. I was trying to figure out how to cook it when I saw Niky’s recipe. Now it’s ham, macaroni, acorn squash, fried cabbage, and pumpkin cornbread for dinner tonight.
I’m always inspired by your posts and sometimes I try your recipes and crafts. However, I don’t usually write about it or post pictures of my results. Today I’m turning over a new leaf. Every blogger wants to improve someone else’s life and enjoy fellowship with other bloggers, right? If you look at the picture below, you can see last night’s country dinner. I made Cindy’s Pumpkin Cornbread and Niky’s Maple pecan Roasted Spaghetti Squash. The squash I thought was an acorn variety was actually spaghetti. Her recipe worked fine- I just had to scrape out the spaghetti-ish strands afterwards. Country Cookin’ Makes You Good Lookin.’
