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.

Happy New Year!!!


This is my first embellished little paper maché cottage with a tiny boxwood wreath of course he he so it is Boxwood Cottage!
I like to thank Ms. Sandy Gordon of the Art Tea Life blog for the little glitter tree, Ms Natalea Kandefer of Kandleland for the gorgeous little blue bird, Ms. Heather of Speckeled Egg for the white glitter dove and the green velvet leaf, Ms. Holly of Hollydoodle for the white snowy glitter on the roof and Ms Nicole of Small Treasures for the beautiful silver and blue flower steems, as well as Ms. Shelly of the Pink Barn for the little wooden spool and last but not least Ms. Charlotte Lyons of House Wren Studio for the inspiration. I'm so thankful that I got to know all of you artsy, crafty and creative ladies out there through flickr and our blogs and for all the wonderful swaps we did. What a fantastic community we all are! You make me happy! Thank you!

Happy New Year 2008 to all of you!

Hugs Carol xox

Hallo Carola,

das ist ja ein hübsches Häuschen. Ist es Pappmarche oder Pappe ? Egal, passt jedenfalls prima zu deinen anderen Dekorationen.
Hier wird schon kräftig geböllert.
Ich wünsche dir und deinen Lieben einen guten Rutsch und ein glückliches, gesundes, kreatives und erfolgreiches neues Jahr.
Ganz liebe Grüße
Deine Cousine Stefanie

Carol, Your cottage is adorable. I thought of you (and your boxwood cottage) many times this season while taking pieces of boxwood and cutting them in to lengths to stuff them into forms making boxwwod tree centerpieces. Wishng you a Happy New Year of good health and one in which all your dreams come true.

Your little faerie cottage is absolutely scruptious ... I may just have to break down and make one next Christmas ... or for Valentines Day! Yes, I think that would be fun!

Missing your presence here ...
and the garden ::swoon:: your yummy garden! It's raining here at the cottage and muddy muddy muddy! Icky weather. I want snow or flowers! Grumble ::giggle::

Chi Chi sends his best ...
Me too! =^..^= love, zU

Carol.....this is my first visit and oh my!....what a treat! Your home was so beautiful during the holidays.....and you are sooo talented. Going through your blog was like a beautiful escape into a winter wonderland and fond memories of Germany when I was a little girl. Thank you for this beautiful moment!

What a beautiful little home! I especially love the creamy color & all of the yummy sparkles!
The wreath is marvelous! My sweetie & I were able to pick up 20 larger potted boxwood plants from Lowes at the end of the last year's season - for approx $1.20 each! We plan to put a courtyard in the front of our cottage this year, and I wanted to frame the cobblestone floor with boxwood. I can't wait to get started!
These little glitter houses are so beautiful! I'm not sure why, but I've only just started to see them around the last few years. Now I must start having them for my home as well ;) Beautiful work!

What happened? I just logged onto your blog for the first time today via Enchanting Cottage and discovered wonderful stuff. But, I see you haven't entered anything this year. I just started blogging in January and am having a ball. Hope you continue making entries and would love to have you visit my site.
Hugs
