Show Off Your Cottage Monday

Oh happy day! It's nice and warm and sunny outside...nearly a perfect day. It's the kind of weather that makes me think I should move to the garden. Ahhh the wind in my hair, the sun on my face and perhaps something sweet and minty like honey tea with a dash of mint from the garden, to drink in that little basket. Doesn't that sound wonderful?

For those of you not familiar with our "linky parties” they are basically a chance for us home and garden lovers to show off… well, just that—our homes and gardens! And all in all whatever is going on in our life that’s worth sharing! Got anything you’d like to share? Then link up! But remember:

Etiquette for linky parties

1) Link to a recent project post, and not a link to the front page of your blog, your Etsy store or a giveaway.

2) Link back to the host’s blog via a button or text link. This is a common courtesy, and it is usually appreciated if you link back in the same blog post that you are linking up.


  1. Hello Dear Cielo-
    I am so loving spending time in the garden - it is such a renewal of the spirit. I am glad that yours is coming along beautifully - a joy each day - I appreciate you hosting - it appears the Linky is not up yet.
    I'll return,
    I wish you a blessed Delightsome week,

  2. I love spending time in the garden. It's such a renewal to the spirit and soul. Yours looks like a wonderful place to relax.

    I don't see the linky. I'll come back in the morning. :)
