Welcome to Little Cottage Link Party #85! This year is rolling along, isn’t it? We’re hiding here in our little cottage while the nation goes crazy around us. Does anyone else feel like that? Anyhow, I’ve begun working on a few Valentine’s Day posts. Here’s what I did last week:
My husband bought me a Modigliani print for our “thrift store night” on Christmas Eve. I used the painting and its back story as a starting point to create an Artistic Love Hurts Valentines Day Vignette with a Mackenzie-Childs inspired bowl and a Mary Engelbreit runner.
While I’m not really a fan of the bones, horns, and the plain palette of some boho decorations, I do like romantic boho decor. I had lots of fun creating Boho Valentines Day Decor in our overflow room. I plan to post a tutorial for the string art heart in the very near future.
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!
Debbie’s post made me laugh. If you need to be uplifted, read how she rolls with the punches regarding her former career as a nurse, her marriage, and her health issues.
I was blown away by T’onna’s dining room table makeover. She needs to come and do mine. Her Give Thanks crochet table runner is gorgeous too.
Carol has some great tips for improving your blog in the upcoming year. Read her post to set goals regarding creating great content, SEO, keywords and more.
Ellibelle blogs about over 40 fashion, handmade cards, and other things. She also has her own Crafty Wednesday Challenge. I loved her fashion posts that included chunky sweaters, scarves, and boots.
My kids bought me a sandwich press from Goodwill for our “thrift store night” this past Christmas. We made Cuban sandwiches last week using the new press. I couldn’t find any bread that resembled the traditional Cuban sandwich version. Thanks Deb, I’ll use sourdough from now on!
When I popped into the blog of my next feature, I found weekly Christian fiction recommendations, fitness picks, and a jewelry website that takes your favorite scripture, minimizes it, and places it into a piece of custom made jewelry. All I can say about Tai’s blog is #goals.
