Welcome to Little Cottage Link Party #80! I hope everyone is going well for all of you this season. The Little Cottage is buzzing with teenagers and young adults home from their adventures in college and elsewhere. If you’re worried about your children growing up and leaving you forever- don’t be. They come back.
Here’s what I worked on last week:
I found the cutest watering can wall hanging at Goodwill a few weeks ago. I stuffed it with greenery, fur balls, plaid flowers, flocked pine cones, icy picks, and antlers to make a DIY Christmas Floral Wall Hanging.
I’ve been continually amazed at all the snow scenes my blogging sisters have created the past few years. I made one of my own from a $5 birdfeeder. I’m not very patient when it comes to gluing little pieces, and I’m skeptical of their permanence as well. I’m always worried that something will fall off later. I’ll have to let you know next year if this piece survived Christmas display and seasonal storage.
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 Merry Christmas tour of a beautiful home. Andrea’s house looks so uncluttered and beautifully decorated in red, white, and silver. I would have to bulldoze everything and start over to make my house look this good.
Marsha’s whimsical tablescape is so simple and colorful. She used a peppermint runner and colorful ornaments and dishes to create something we can emulate in our homes.
Allyson made some creative Christmas tree ornaments from cardboard and other dollar store items for under $10. I am continually surprised with my fellow bloggers’ abilities to make such nice things on small budgets.
Of all the snowglobes and snow scenes I’ve seen this year, this one is the prettiest. Tee hit a homerun with this creation. Santa is kissing Mrs. Claus beside the North Pole- inside a gumball machine. I love it.
Anita’s sock gnomes are increbile. She added so much detail with washers, broken jewelry, and leather scraps. I’m impressed with the way she applies her steampunk theme to a variety of seasons and holidays.
Tonna’s dress form tree is definitely majestic and eye-catching, but what makes it even more interesting are those fun crochet baubles at the bottom!
