I hope you had a safe and happy Halloween! Mine was… interesting. I ended up spending a couple of hours at the ER – turns out I have a mild concussion. My little one and I bonked our heads together – she’s totally fine, it didn’t phase her a bit – the hardest part of her head hit the softest part of mine (my temple). Ugh! Fortunately I made it back from the hospital in time for us to still hand out some treats to the zillions of trick-or-treaters we had (and no, I’m not kidding – there were hundreds of kids in our neighborhood!) But another bright spot of the day was emailing back and forth with Brenda of the wonderful blog Cozy Little House, a blog I’ve been looking forward to sharing with you!
Several months ago I came across her site and was instantly smitten! Brenda’s blog is filled with so much love and hospitality I hardly know where to begin! She periodically shares the most darling tablescapes dressed in cottage style like this Red, White & Blue setting above – how delightful is this rolling pin centerpiece?
I’m crazy for glass domes, or cloches, and loved this one filled with this darling vignette! What a great way to display a favorite collection!
She has a very popular link party titled Tweak It Tuesdays. Interested? It’s not too late to join this week’s party!
I think what I love most about Brenda though is her hospitality – she is the official Welcome Wagon Lady of the internet! You can check out her weekly column welcoming new bloggers to the world wide web – here’s a link to last week’s post. But even more generous is her giving heart for helping bloggers like me learn more about having a great blog. Check it out here: Cozy Inspiration. It’s filled with a wealth of information on topics like: Blogger Tips & Tutorials, The Business of Blogging, Growing Your Blog and so much more!
Brenda is also an avid gardener and regularly chronicles what’s blooming outside like these gorgeous yellow mums!
She also shares a sweet series of articles on Fairy Gardens – I can’t wait to make one of these with my little one next Spring!
There is so much more I could say about Brenda’s wonderful blog but my head is pounding so I’m going to sign off for now. I hope you will head over to her Cozy Little House blog and please tell her I said “hello”!
