I believe I told you how I started to write a blog, but if you don't
know, here is the story. I started reading blogs a few years before I
began my own. My Daddy was suffering the ravages of Alzheimer's
and I worried about him constantly and as a consequence, I developed
insomnia. It was durning one of those wee hours of the morning that I
discovered cottage style blogs. The charm of those blogs and the
contentment I felt reading them carried me through those long nights.
It was back in the day when blogs were friendlier and not so
commercial. Such a nice group of women who allowed the reader
to see glimpses of their homes and their lives. It was mostly
cheerful and upbeat. It was a world where we all could dream
for a bit and feel safe. It was like home.
I joined the world of blogging because I wanted to be like those women.
I wanted to spread some cheer too. Although the platform of blogging has
become much more driven and commercial, I like to think that there is
still a place for cottage style blogs and their homey message.
At least I hope this is so.
When I welcome you into my home, my world, with each blog post,
I am also welcoming you into my heart.
So I hope that when you come to visit me, you leave feeling
happy, because I blog from a place of love.
The world can be an unsettling place sometimes. I strive to find the
goodness and sweep away the bad. While we cannot bury our heads in
the sand all the time, we can raise our heads up to see the sun.
I have another talented miniaturist to share with you on my
mini blog today. If you would like to see some adorable
