A couple months ago, I met a woman named Jill in a local antique store when I was browsing with my friend, Debbie. Jill happened to overhear a conversation Debbie and I were having about some of our favorite blogs so Jill stopped us and introduced herself. She said she also read some of the blogs Debbie and I had been discussing!
The three of us stood and talked for the longest time about our love of all things cottage and before we parted ways, we exchanged email addresses.
Jill has thoroughly enjoyed reading blogs about cottage decor but I mentioned she should consider starting her own blog so she could share her cottage style decorated home with others.
Well, I’m very happy and excited to announce that Jill , who lives here in Florida, has teamed up with her sister-in-law, Denise, who lives in California, and together they will be co-authoring the blog, Cottage Sisters.
Please pop over and say a big friendly “HELLO” and welcome them to Blogland.
I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 44 years. We have one beautiful and precious daughter, age 35.
After more than 37 years in the workforce, I was fortunate enough to be able to quit my job in 2007 and stay home. As a natural born homebody and "nester," this opportunity to be a full-time homemaker has brought me immeasurable contentment and happiness. I thoroughly enjoy spending each and every day in the cozy comfort of "My Cottage of Bliss."
About the "House in Hooterville": In October 2009, we bought a 30 acre horse farm in a small country town approximately 45 miles from the city where I have lived my whole life. Join me, a city girl through and through, as I try to simultaneously adapt to country life in "Hooterville" and redecorate the 1978 brick ranch-style house on the property into My (new) Cottage of Bliss.
