One of my Favs : Mockingbird Hill Cottage

I am going to start a new feature on my blog on Sundays called One of my Favs and I'm going to introduce you to bloggers I follow and why I love them so.

We are starting with the lovely Claudia at Mockingbird Hill Cottage.


She lives in the sweetest little cottage...


with her lovely and talented husband, Don...


and their beautiful girl, Scout


Claudia's blog is a slice of life blog and they are always the ones I enjoy the most.  We've been talking about the naked niche lately and Mockingbird Hill Cottage fits that to a tee.  While there are some topics that recur (like her wonderful posts about renovating and decorating a dollhouse), Claudia gives you a new glimpse into her life every day.  It isn't long before you feel like her BFF.  She has such a warm and welcoming way about her that you feel like she's just ushered you in for a hot chocolate or cold lemonade, depending on the season.  You have a cuddle with Scout and hear about the garden and her latest job and what lovely piece she has picked up for one of her collections.  You look over the book she's reading and the quilt she's working on and if Don isn't away on an acting job, he may wander in with his guitar to sing you a song he wrote.

This is a house and a blog full of love and creativity and it's become an essential part of every morning for me.  If you haven't met Claudia yet, wander on over and feel the love.

  3. Oh, Julie, thank you! I'm sitting here with a big old grin on my face! This means so much to me, because the way you have described the blog is exactly what I've tried to create at Mockingbird Hill Cottage. (I guess it's working!)

    Thank you again for writing such a lovely tribute. From Mockingbird Hill Cottage to Julie's Little House: Have a wonderful day!
