Creative Bloggers Of The Week #5

Oh me, oh my, I do love this. I could live in this little potting shed. Which belongs to Mary at Home Is Where The Boat Is.

I think I can see the water over there to the left. Beyond the hanging mosaic window. Wow, what a scenic place to live.

Tanya at Twelve-0-Eight does wonderful things with paint. She knows just how to refurbish cast-offs. And to distress them to perfection. 

I love what she does with furniture. She makes them shine.

Some folks just have that painting talent. I don't happen to be one of them.

Absolutely my favorite part about the whole Halloween season is candy corn. I adore it.

Just look at the pudding pops Melissa at Number 2 Pencil made. 

I wouldn't begin to know how to make them. But somehow they get made in this. 

(...And don't you just love the name of her blog?)

Laura at Finding Home did something pretty different with her painted pumpkins. And I thought it was really super cute. Door knobs for stems! 

These are simply adorable. And to add a dangling vintage key is just the icing on the cake.

And this I chose because it is just so nostalgic of days gone by. Reminds me of grandma's house. If I could I would crawl into the photo and sit down and smell that bread.

Cindy of Oakview Cottage made this bread, and some jam and jelly to go with it. 

I take my hat off to you, Cindy. You do what I wish I somehow found time to do. Or just plain carved time out to do. What I did when my girls were young.

Baking bread and filling the whole house with that yeasty smell that is so lovely it should be made into a candle. 

And to top it off with homemade jam and jelly. Your loved ones must come to your house often. You are quite a homemaker.

This week I chose to feature five creative blogs of the week. I did ten for four weeks, and came to the realization that there is just so much time. I decided it would be better to do five blogs and add more photos. 

Where does the time go? Seems I spend so much of it sitting in front of this screen. And I've just got to find time to get off and bake whole wheat bread again. And learn how to make jam. 

Cindy, are you up for teaching me? I want to tell you right up front that the only thing I know for sure about jams and jellies is that it goes in jars...

  1. Oh my goodness! Wonderful inspiration here! The first one with the potting shed is absolute perfection! I could live there too. Every single one of the features looks great but if I sit here much longer in front of the computer screen my day will be shot. Must get outside and get some things accomplished.

  2. I need to STOP coming here when I should be doing something else, LOL! Now you've had me wandering all around that cottage for ages now! :) I know I've seen a few posts of hers in the past but I've not really gone through alot of the more recent ones....

    Old, bungalow, filled with vintage things, lots of white with pops of red here and there, etc...her place is the kind of older home with character and decor that I just drool over :)

  3. Thanks for sharing Brenda..Love the door knob pumpkins...gonna go visit..

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.

Please be kind with your comments. We all need kindness in this world. That's not to say you can't state your opinion! Everyone should be able to state their own opinion in a kind and thoughtful manner.
