First Post

Welcome to Kensington Cottage, come in and stay a while! This is my first attempt at blogging, my husband thought I should give it a try, so here goes! Four years ago we started building the home we currently live in. It took us 3 1/2 years to "finish" it. Technically it is still not "finished", there are a few things here and there that need to be done, and we do them as we can. Here, I will chronicle a bit of the building process, show you my decorating ideas, and also throw in a few sewing projects and tips. I love to decorate, love to sew, and love to scrapbook (though I almost never have time for the last!) We have a 2 year old daughter who keeps us on our toes, so things sometimes get done in fits and starts! I hope you will bear with me while I figure out all this blogging stuff, and get the site up and running! Please check back often, as I will try to post three times a week at least! I hope you enjoy Kensington Cottage as much as we do! Melissa


  1. Cute blog Mel. Looking forward to seeing what you do with the chalk board. You have inspired me (as has Jill's blog) to try and find things for the house on the cheap. Looks like auctions and antique/junk stores will be my new best friend.

  2. Lois, you will love it! Its a "thrill of the hunt" kind of thing. You go into a junk store and browse around, and just as you are about to walk out, sad that you didn't find anything, there it is, that perfect something for the living room, and you get all excited! It's a great feeling! You will enjoy it!
