Welcome Wagon Friday 8/2/13

It's that time of the week again. I missed last week because the storm knocked the internet out for three days. Then there was my move from WP back to Blogger that caused untold misery. Then the losing of my domain feed and my posts. All apparently due to computer errors.

And then yesterday the feed was found,, so at least I have my old domain. But the posts appear to be gone. Even the over three years I was originally at Blogger. I can find the posts, but they are empty.

Am I happy to be back at Blogger? YES! Friendly waters again! A blogger in the UK who'd moved back to Blogger emailed me and said: "Back to simplicity and sanity..."

So, new bloggers, my blog is now probably newer than yours. We're all in the same boat.

Okay, now for the new bloggers...

Such a beautiful chippy mirror!

And a clever clipboard turned chalkboard too.

A wonderful idea for a kitchen command post.

And someone's been busy in the kitchen! Yum.

Just look at this young man rockin' some new homemade pants.

And that's not all Mom can do. Look at these cute super hero masks.

Okay, you know the drill. Go visit some new bloggers and make them feel welcome.

Happy, happy August!

  1. Poor Brenda...but look on the bright side; if you can survive all that, you can survive ANYTHING!
    So sorry you lost all your posts..

    1. Me too. But no use crying over spilt milk.

  2. Thank you so much for featuring my new blog, Brenda. I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of everything you've posted. It is heartbreaking when you work hard to create something and see it disappear. Good luck as you start all over again!

    1. Sometimes things happen that set us back. But I'm not willing to let this happen. I'm just going to move forward and hope for the best.

  3. Brenda,I'll miss being able to go back and see your garden in Texas and your gazebo. I guess "we'll" just have to let by-gones, be by-gones.
    On, to bigger and better things and times.
    Hugs, Charlotte in Va.

    1. I have some of those gardens from TX up in my navigation bar under Gardens. I specify which ones are from TX.

  4. Hi Brenda! Hope you are having a good day...Thanks so much for sharing other bloggers with us...its storming here today so it will give me something to do as I sit here listening to the thunder outside..Have a great weekend! Carol

    1. That's a good thing to do while it's storming.

  5. Thanks for sharing new bloggers, Brenda. I'll be sure to check them out. And I love these bright and cheerful colors of your blog now! I'd love a room done in these colors! ;-)


    1. These colors just kind of "fell" together accidentally. But I have taken a real liking to them.

  6. I'm so glad I found you! When I put 'cozylittlehouse dot com in the address bar, I get an error message, but if I google you, I find you and can follow the link! What is your address now so I know what to do? Glad you're back in biz! Cindy @

    1. Should be the original one:

  7. I am so glad you're back! I found you through Cabin and Cottage as you aren't on my Bloglovin reader yet. I will google you for now if you aren't back there for now. My day isn't complete til I read what you have to say. Cris

    1. Hm, I will have to go check and see what's wrong with Bloglovin. Because I thought I took care of that.

  8. Oh no Brenda. I'm sorry you are having computer problems. I'm thinking of moving to WP. Should I change my mind????

    1. It's completely up to you. I wouldn't dare make that decision for someone else.

  9. So glad you are back to simple old blogger. Your blog opens easily for me everytime now with no "waiting" while wheels spin. Thanks for featuring new blogs! xo Diana

    1. Thanks for always being so supportive, Diana. I wonder why it was slow at WP. It's supposed "to be bigger and better over there", kind of like Texas. I'm glad it's easier.


I always enjoy reading your comments and having you join the conversation here at Cozy Little House. It is like having a gathering of friends sitting in my cozy apartment. Enjoying coffee and dessert, chatting and having a good time. I appreciate each and every one of you!
