for the ladies...

Browsing the internet today and came across this blog which I really enjoyed: the Beehive Cottage. Here is the link . The blog is written by a woman named Maryjane and here is her bio.: "I am a Mother to four...three daughters and one son whom are all married with families of their own! I am a Grandmother to 11 who are my pride & joy! I married my high school sweetheart many moons ago! I keep busy in my craft room, I play house & camp in my little 1957 vintage travel trailer, I live a little vintage by cooking comfort foods, make my own heavenly scented laundry detergent, ride a PINK bike, wear an apron and pearls, I love to sew and craft vintage while watching old movies or watch the oldies on TV, and I enjoy having family and friends in my home."

I love all of her craft projects, decorating ideas, recipes, and vintage photos! Here's a sneak preview:

She makes blank journals with different themes. I posted another one farther down the page.
(Reminds me of when we made scrapbooks as kids...I think it was Mom's way of keeping us busy!)
...and she has a blue vintage camper...

...a recipe journal she made...

If you scroll along the left side of her blog, Maryjane has links to lots and lots of other cottage and vintage blogs to click on. Then, way down at the very bottom, you can click to read her older posts. Enjoy!


  1. Now I'm commenting on my own post!!! Just found another blog that I know Mom (and others) will like; it's called "52Flea" and has wonderful close-up photos of old things and flea market finds...makes me drool! Here is the link

  2. Oops...the link doesn't seem to work in the "Comments"...I've added it to the "Links" section on the right side of my there and it should work!

  3. Cheryl, What do you think of curtains out of Rt 66 fabric for the T@B ??? Joanne

  4. I love that fabric and think it would be great for curtains for your t@b.
    I also love the "Cowgirl Up" sign in the camper in one of the photos above! - Cheryl
