Welcome to Little Cottage Link Party #91! What has everyone been up to lately? We’ve been thinking about putting the little cottage on the market. Now that we’re down to 2 children at home (a 3rd child still lives here, but is away at college), it might be time to trade the 4th bedroom for more living space.
I’ve also begun a 100 Day Painting Challenge with a friend. The goal is to paint something every single day. I truly believe that my skills will improve if I devote a at least a little bit of time every morning to my artistry. Here’s what I painted on day one:
On with the Party
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 featured blogger used a humble brown paper bag to create a bonafide work of art. Deb’s ribbons and found objects added the perfect touches to her album.
Claire made a gorgeous wreath and birdhouse from fabric and yarn scraps. Her thinking-out-of-the-box colors are amazing! Look at her hand-done whipstitch. Love it!
Are you looking for a stylish way to save those soap scraps? Helen has the perfect sewing project for you!
Cabinet doors do not have to be thrown away. They can be painted and styled with a sweet little wreath!
I’m mezerized by the gorgous cottages and animals on Debbie’s Noritake plates! She is a dish-girl like me. What a great theme for a March tablescape.
Maya’s crochet flower numbers were a beautiful gift for a family member’s 20th birthday. Pop into her blog to see how she stabilized the flowers and leaves.
