I was so excited!

I got my follower email from the blog 

So I clicked on the link and the COZY LITTLE HOUSE blog loaded and appeared.  I love Brenda's blog, it is one of my absolute favorites and has been for more than a year. I read every post she publishes. I even read every comment.

I read and scrolled down. Oh, what beautiful photos of lovely things!  And then, here it was, my photo and a link to my blog!

I jumped up, ran into the office and showed it to thehubs. Then I popped over to facebook and told ALL of my friends how happy and proud I was to be featured on Brenda's blog.  

I was so excited I couldn't go to sleep! A goal of mine was to be featured at Cozy Little House and my work was accepted!

I have learned so much since I started blogging.  I have gotten to know myself better and feel proud of my work.  I knew absolutely nothing about blogging when I started. It all began when I happened upon 

Linda is a great writer, decorator, artist and is full of enthusiasm and gratitude. Reading her blog is fun, brings me joy and makes me feel as if I am a neighbor who has come over for a glass of ice tea. Linda is the reason I created my blog. I needed that positive woman in my life. I wanted to meet more Linda's. And I did. I have met some amazing people who live in amazing places.

What is ahead for me and my blog? 

I have so many ideas and so much new stuff to learn, I can't wait to get started.  I hope you will see this blog become more organized in the future, easier to find, read and follow. I plan to pay more attention to what day it is, to take more photos, and make time to be myself. I hope you will follow along!

As life goes...
We haven't been home much lately but I have tried to read every blog on my list. Many times I read them on my smart phone using my big reading/magnifying glasses leaving no comments because it is just too hard to do on my phone. I am still wearing my "Bone Growth Stimulator" 4 hours a day since my neck surgery, not easy in these ozark mountain heat waves. I have enjoyed our air conditioning this summer. I think it is healing just fine. Our life is pretty boring, at least to me.


  1. Congratulations on attaining your goal of being featured on Brenda's blog! I love your vignette - the colors are awesome.

    1. Thank you Jerralea! I am still giddy over it!

  2. I did go over and read her blog and left a comment, but did not see you mentioned. i will go back and check again... congrats on the mention... my life is blogging and emailing and photography. i can't imagine in this heat wearing anything but very little. hope you can dump the bone growth thingy soon.

    1. Thank you Sandra! I love Brenda's blog. Sometimes she writes about subjects others won't touch. She wrote a blog about a young lady who lost her battle to cancer. As I read I realized the young lady lived only a few miles from me. Her Java talk on Thursdays gets very interesting!

  3. Haha!!! I was surprised to see MY BLOG in this post!!! That made MY day!!
    You are such a delight to anyone and everyone who visits you!
    What an amazing attitude you have! Prayers as you continue in your recovery!
    I'm packing my bag and getting ready to spend a few days in Quadville!

  4. Your enthusiasm is bubbling over and that is a good thing; how nice to have your work featured on a blog that is dear to you.

  5. I understand what you're saying, as I'm a big fan of Brenda's "Cozy Little House" and I consider Linda a true Friend, tho we've never met.

  6. oh how wonderful for you, it is a great feeling!!!!

  7. How nice to be featured on a fellow blogger's blog. I will have to check her blog out. It's great to be recognized for the things we post.


Thank you for taking a peek and stopping by to visit!
