I have always had my nose stuck in a book. When I was a child, the small local library was practically my second home.
When my nose isn’t stuck in a book, my face might be behind my camera, because I love photography.
I love to decorate and garden. These days I live in a patio apartment and I garden in containers.
I like to repurpose. Why throw things away when you can give them new life? One woman’s trash is another woman’s treasure.
If you like decorating and gardening on a budget, repurposing finds, and being frugal in general, you’ve come to the right place.
If you like to read, I write about books and reviews too.
If your goal is to live simply, you’ve found a like-minded friend.
If you love the simplicity of nature, and happen to be an animal lover, you’ve arrived at your destination.
If you want to read a blog that is about real life (no holds barred), you have found a blogger who tells it like it is. I write essays about every day life and women’s issues.
Welcome to my Cozy Little House (which happens to now be an apartment).
Sit down in my cozy little space, and let’s get to know one another.
Will that be iced tea or hot coffee? And would you like something deliciously chocolate? I’m sure I have something in the kitchen, because I love sweets.
Tell me about yourself. I’ve been told that sharing happens to be good for the soul.
Minutiae of my life…
I am a country girl living in the city.
I enjoy lots of solitude.
I love my pupsters, Abi and Charlie.
I like to read thrillers, psychological mysteries & women’s fiction.
I am most happy when digging in the dirt and planting flowers and herbs.
I love all of the seasons, for with each of them comes beauty.
I feel most comfortable with my camera, endlessly capturing what I see through the lens.
I have a degree in Professional Writing.
I went to real estate school and finished, but never hung out my shingle.
I like a cozy home filled with many colors.
I have gone back to my maiden name of Pruitt. On my newly found sister’s birth certificate, it is spelled Pruett. Tis a mystery.
