Spotlight: The Blogger Behind The Talent.
Kris from Junk Chic Cottage, and myself (Susan) Must Love Junk wanted to do a regular feature on our blogs, something unique that hasn't been done before. So we came up with an idea to 'spotlight the real life behind the blogger' in a more personal way.
Every week on Saturday we will spotlight a blogger and have them tell us a little bit about themselves and their blogs.
The Talent Behind the Blogger.
There is so much talent and inspiration in blogland, and we thought it would be fun to bring you a closer look at the person behind the blog.
We decided to start off this feature with ourselves, and give you a more personal glimpse into our 'real lives' so that you can get to know us a little better!
We'd love to hear what you think of this new feature! Without further ado...
"SATURDAY SPOTLIGHT: REAL LIFE BEHIND THE BLOGGER"
The Talent Behind the Blogger.
I am Kris from Junk Chic Cottage.
I have been doing my blog a little over a year now. When I started my blog I did not think anyone would get me or my style. I was so wrong. It is amazing all the wonderful bonds I have made with other bloggers. It was wonderful that someone else would get the love I have of re loving old salvage pieces, like doors and windows into my decor.
I am a nurse by profession but am a decorator by heart. My passion is my home and having it reflect the things I love. I have been married for 32 years to a Fire Chief that is amazing and talented with tools. He can take my visions and make them work. You have to love a man with tools and that knows how to use them!!!
|My husband Terry and myself.|
We have two grown daughters. My oldest daughter is married and they have a beautiful little daughter. My granddaughter Abby is the love of our lives. My other daughter is following in my foot steps as a nurse. She has a caring heart and loves her job of taking care of people. I am so proud that both my daughters have grown to become the women they are. They both make a big difference in this world we live in.

|You will find old and chippy doors throughout my home. My signature pieces in my home.|
|I used old farmhouse doors to make a headboard for my bedroom. I can admit I am a door hoarder!!!!|
|Old horse barn door.|
|Something else to know about me is I have an addiction for magazines and decorating books. I have them stored everywhere throughout my home.|
|Pretty much anything salvage I can re purpose and re use in my home is my signature.|
|My nest is small but full of unique charm.|
Well there you have it a little bit of personal information about me. I have enjoyed learning and becoming bloggie friends with so many of you. Please hop over to Susan's blog and let her introduce herself to you. Please leave us a comment and give us some feedback on our new feature. Thanks for letting us share a little about ourselves.
