What Makes Me Happy {Junk Chic Cottage}


It's Wednesday and time for my series, What Makes Me Happy. Welcome Kris of Junk Chic Cottage, my first in a series of guest post.


I have been invited by Ron from Uptown Acorn to be part of his feature What Makes Me Happy.  Ron runs this feature each Wednesday on his blog.  Just a fun way to get to know our blogger friends a little better and also meet some new friends.

So here goes.  Here are are few things that make me happy and make my heart sing.

First is my family.  I have two daughters, a SIL and two beautiful Grand girls.  They are the greatest blessings in my life.





Our newest addition little grand girl Charlotte with her grandpa and my sweet Hubby.



This man makes me so happy.  We found each others souls back in 1980 and have been best friends since. He makes my life and heart so happy.





I am a summer girl and love my garden flowers.  Making an outdoor sanctuary each summer makes me happy. My decor style is very neutral with whites, creams, and grays so I love summer where I can have lots and lots of color around me on the outside of my home.  That makes me happy.

Happy Days spent on this lounger soaking up the sun and fresh air of summer.  Taking time to read and enjoy the beauty of a summer day makes me soooo happy!

What really makes me happy is to find old and discarded salvage pieces with history and re love them into my decor.  Like this old window and chippy shutters that were taken out of an old farmhouse that was torn down.  I just love the detail and history to these pieces.   Being a neutral girl that loves salvage and chippy pieces of days gone by make me very happy.


So many things in life make me happy and make my heart smile.  These are just a few.
Thank you Ron for this invite.  I hope you will stop by and visit when you have time.  Love meeting new bloggers.  That makes me happy too!!!! www.junkchiccottage.blogspot.com

Have a great rest of this beautiful week.
xoxo
Kris

Thanks, Kris!

What Makes Me Happy, y'all!

  8. Just reading Kris blog post makes me happy seeing what her and Terry have painted white for the week of the blog post. Then I love her dog Cooper. I have a very soft spot for dogs and her dog is special.

  10. Hello Ron. I have followed Kris for a little over a year now. It is always exciting to see one of her posts come through on my email. I always know it will be a treat to see what she finds on a junkin trip and how she makes a home for it in her lovely cottage ☺

Even with us blogger being different in our decor styles I find we are all connected with things in common that makes us happy. This is a fun series and I am getting to know some new bloggers. So thank you so much Ron for this opportunity. Hugs my friend.
