Here it is, the beginning of a new year. I thought I'd step out of my comfort zone and try something new. So here I am writing my very first blog post.
I'm excited about some new ideas I have for starting a small cottage industry. So I have been brainstorming with one of my lovely daughters. I have always been a creative person and love making things with my hands. So I'm looking at making, and hopefully selling, things that I think are beautiful, and maybe someone else will think so too!
I want to have fun and also help supplement our small income.
I love our new old house and I am enjoying decorating and filling it with love and warmth.
We had our first Christmas here and it was beautiful.

So here goes... my journey into blogging.

How I love my garden
