Welcome to Boxwood Cottage!

So glad that you found me! My blog is about everything I love like gardening, decorating my home & garden and crafting. Although I'm from Germany I write my blog in English so that hopefully every visitor can read it. Hope you'll stay a while and will leave me a comment so that I know that you were here! xoxo Carola

Yesterday my Dad gave me this old photo. My Grandma used to sell Christmas trees ( fir trees) on their courtyard when I was a child (my Grandpa was a forester in a very woody German region called the "Harz") and my cousin and I loved to play hide- and- seek between the trees. Aww good old times!

Hi Krissie, thank you, I'm glad you like my photo, but that's not a forest on the pic, the trees are already cutted down and standing on my grandparents courtyard, ready to sell them.

Thats adorable! What a cutie pie you and your cousin were. So Germany is your homeland. I was thinking you were an American living there. You have a great blog...love coming by!

Carol said...

Yep I'm born in Goslar a very old little city in Germany and have always lived here, except of the year I've been an au pair girl in France. I've moved to Bremen with my parents when I was one year old. It's very flattering that you thought so Maggie Ann because that means that my English skills aren't that bad he he
