Happy New Year! I can't think of a better day to post my first entry on my blog (never mind that Darcy had it designed well over a month ago!).

I feel an ENORMOUS pressure to live up to my favorite blog authors who I stalk almost daily - The Nester and Layla at The Lettered Cottage to name a couple. I have felt a real familiarity with how they feel about their homes and thought, "hey, if they can do it, so can I". Plus, I want to be their BFF's in blogland...

Anyway, I am currently in the process of "homemaking" the 9th home I have lived in since being married 17 (gulp!) years ago. My corporate guy husband has moved us around a bit but I pray this will be our "forever cottage" (so do my 2 daughters). I look forward to sharing with you my process and what I have already done to make our sweet 1920's cottage in Minnesota our family home. Let me warn you - I have decorating ADD and don't always get it right the first time around!

What can you expect? I love anything french, cottagey (yes, that is a word in my vocabulary), from flea markets, chippy, ironstone, alabaster lamps, brown tranferware, Dash & Albert rugs, egg prints, nest prints, signs that say things that speak to me, black & white photography of my kids, a really great mudroom, urns, adirondack chairs, feed sacks, slipcovers, sisal, bamboo, texture!, .......

I look forward to this journey and seeing it where it might take me. Come along for the ride!

  1. BTW - on your left sidebar, open up the archives, and delete the line on top where it says blog archives. Just leave it blank. I made the sidebar title above, so it doesn't need two. It'l make it look nicer. ;)

    Email me if my directions stink.
