Welcome to Little Cottage Link Party #62! Happy August! I’m always excited when August arrives because I love homeschooling! Two of our five children are still in school. I have a 10th grader and a 7th grader this year. I’ve been ordering books this past week and getting ready for our trip to Dollywood. Take a look at the projects I’ve been working on:
One project I needed to finish before school was a Tie Dyed Pittsburgh Steelers Sweatshirt for my husband. I’m still working on one for my son and oldest daughter.
I enjoy sharing recipes native to the South Carolina Lowcountry from time to time. This Red Rice Recipe will make you wish you lived down here with us.
Have you ever been a victim of emotional or mental abuse? I have. Someday I’m going to write a fictional (sort of) novel about my experiences with all the narcissists and manipulators I have encountered in my 52 years of life. For now, I’ve typed a post with tips and tricks learned the hard way. Read Battle Back from Emotional Abuse if you have the time.
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!
Beth creates the best tablescapes. Johnson brothers Friendly Village with a Camping Theme? Shut up! I have Johnson Brothers Bouquet, which works well for Thanksgiving. I would love to have Friendly Village for Christmas! I guess I’ll just eat my heart out.
I couldn’t resist Debbie’s Pittsburgh Penguin’s dresser for her husband, Joe. The way she combined her Victorian style with his sports memorabilia is quite unique.
T’onna used the prettiest fabric patterns to make her masks. She has Wonder Woman, Minnie Mouse, Little Red Riding Hood and much more! You can visit her ETSY shop here.
When I saw this dessert, I bought all the ingredients to make it. I’ll have to let you know how it turns out.
Claire’s map necklace made from eyeglasses excites the geographer within me. I’ve always loved Geography even though I have zero sense of direction.
Pam has inspired me to order some calligraphy pens. Her fabulous tutorial that also includes a video. If a blogger inspires you to buy something, don’t forget to use her affiliate links!
