well, i have read all the magazines, searched the how to books, and it seems there is no clear image of what a cottage is. so i suppose i can establish my own idea of a cottage, and the cottage life. i think i have earned this right, having lived the last 20 years on the side of the road in a dwelling that is less than 1000square feet and was never meant to be a primary residence.

the purpose of this blog is to share the joys and sometimes hardships of living in a true cottage.

my first post will be to establish what i believe are some signs that you might just live in a cottage.

1.if your dwelling started its life as a “poker house” in the woods

2.if you have any rooms that used to be porch space

3.if one of your bathrooms is outside.(okay for…

following your bliss…….

Posted in Uncategorized on September 16, 2012 by frannie50

sometimes i like to plan my days or weeks and make long list of things to do. more often than not, i misplace my list, and so i have led a life full of unplanned events. i dont recommend it, but its what i know.

some people may call this “following your bliss”. i prefer to think of it more as a stalking the wild cactus existence.

recently, the cactus in our area put on quite a display, and i finally got it all together enough to stalk the wild cactus and follow my bliss. i made cactus jelly. something i have been talking about doing for the last 20 years….sometimes following your bliss can take a few detours.Image

craftin for roundtop

Posted in crafting, domestic goddess aprons with tags , on September 18, 2011 by frannie50

i have a girlfriend of 30+years who is just a crafter extraordinairre! she will soon be departing to go to roundtop and will bring her great  crafts(beautiful hats and jackets).she sells in roundtop , new mexico, virginia and also san angelo, texas.

 bc(before cancer) i used to go on some of her craft trips with her and sell my crafts as well.  a good time was had by all!!!!

 

now  i stay home, and hope for the day when i will again “hit the trail” and hang out with my friend , reid, but since i have started to craft again she usually offers to take some of my wares with her, like the  domestic goddes aprons that i have pictured above.

if you are going to roundtop, be sure and check out the folks at “gone to texas”. they are a fun group with wonderful items. my friend , reid will be there amongst them:hats, jackets, from recycled vintage wools and linens.

dust yourself off, and start all over again……

now if i can just find my.........
