Cottage of the Month


Hello sweet friends! I have some fun and exciting news to share! I am very  flattered and excited to have been chosen as April's "Cottage of the Month" at the Old Painted Cottage. The sweet & lovely Miss Jennifer created the Cottage of the Month on her website back in 2006. The homes and families she has featured over the years are all so so INCREDIBLE!!!! I remember appx 6 months ago my Mom and I sitting at my computer looking at every home of the month for each year. We just "Ooooh'd and Aahh'd" It is like looking at a home decorating magazine but 10x  BETTER!!!! When Jennifer contacted me about my home being featured I was beyond thrilled. Such a lovely honor!!! You can click here to see photos of my home and you MUST if you've never been to Jennifer's site before browse and look at all the other gorgeous homes. You will fall in love and become inspired!!!!  

I've just recently joined an altered apron swap hosted by a good friend of mine. I have NEVER worked on an apron before and I DONT SEW!!!!!  I just like to purchase them and displaying them in my home. hee! hee! I thought to myself this will be a fun challange! As long as I can use "liquid sew" I'm "IN"! Im creating this for my lovely swap partner Miss Ginny.  These are a few "sneek peaks".  



DSCN9938_edited-2EEEK! I cant wait for Ginny to see the "whole" apron once it's finished. It's pretty and feminine and definitley will have a "touch of whimsy". πŸ™‚

Have a lovely & creative weekend!!!

XOXO, Jenn

Congrats! Isn’t it such a huge honor?! When she asked me I kept re-reading the email to be sure I was seeing things right! Lol! But your home is so beautiful, I am surprised it took this long! Can’t wait to see it…off to visit now!

I think I was the one that hooked you up with Jennifer, remember her and I lived on the same street? It sure is a small world. FiFi had featured her home in Oct 07 in Romantic Homes. I am thrilled to see your lovely home featured it sure does deserve all the fame it gets.
Hugs, Diane

Oh I LOVE cottage of the month!!! If anyone should be in there, it is YOU!! Your house is absolutely to die for!! Congratulations, I am so excited for you!!!!
The apron looks fabulous Jenn and I cant wait to see the rest! You know, I won a 40’s sheer pink apron in a drawing a couple years ago and just loved it. Now you have me hooked on them and wanting more, lol! I cannot sew and NEED liquid sew, lol! Thank goodness for that stuff!
Have a beautiful weekend!

Your home at her site is unbelievable. I emailed the link to my sister. I told her that she had to see your home. I wish I could print out the pictures to be inspired over a cup of tea whenever I have a quiet moment.

Jenn, your home is fabolous! You definitely deserved the feature. I just love the colors. See ya next month!

Jenn! Congratulations! I love Jennifer’s site and I’m so proud of you that you will be featured! Good things come to good people!
