About Me

Why Am I Here? And more importantly, why should you be here?

I have wanted to do a blog for a very, very long time!  As a “chronic illness warrior”, I have spent a bazillion hours reading blogs, gathering ideas, and learning new crafting techniques and DIY tips.  It’s amazing how much talent and creativity can be found out there in “blog land”.

Truth be told, I have had a long and often times difficult journey, but today I am happily married and living in my dream house.  I finally have the freedom to decorate in my favorite styles and experiment with new ideas, all of which, I will share with you here at Cottage Lovely.  Mymind overflows with the wealth of ingenious ideas I have discovered and I am thrilled to finally be able to share them with you!

Let me do the hunting and gathering while you sit back and enjoy the tips and knowledge that you can use to make your home the inviting haven you have always wanted.

If there is ever a topic you would like me to cover, feel free to send me a note…. I would LOVE to hear from you.  This blog is for you!

PS.  If you are ever in the Gettysburg area, check out my booth at Rebel’s Roost!  Lot’s of Cottage Lovely’s handmades to be found!
