Susan from Must Love Junk, and myself (Kris) Junk Chic Cottage 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.
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.
Every week on Saturday we will spotlight a blogger and have them tell us a little bit about themselves and their blogs. You will be able to see and read about each of the bloggers on both Susan's and my blog.
Saturday March 15
Shanon from Vintage Sparkle Chic
Good Saturday morning everyone. It gives me great pleasure to introduce you to another really sweet blogger this week. Shanon from Vintage Sparkle Chic.
Shanon is as sweet and has a really super cute blog. After reading about Shanon please hop over and check out her great blog.
I am so honored and so excited to be featured for Saturday Spotlight: Life Behind the Blogger.
I am from Vermont but moved to Colorado when I was 23. My family has all followed me out here. I had to move because of very bad allergies and asthma and I needed to live in a dry climate. I am so much better here but I do miss Vermont and all the moisture. Colorado is so dry! I have been here almost 19 years. I work as a dental hygienist three days a week.
I am married to my love, Michael, this year makes 15 years for us.
We have two beautiful girls. Taela (left) just turned 13 and Kila will be 11 today!
We love to just spend time hiking, camping, grilling and just being together.
My style is shabby french, I love whites with splashes of color. I recently painted my kitchen cabinets and I am thrilled with how they turned out.
A splash of turquoise for the island.
I also love shabby green. This mirror is new to me with the perfect patina. It matches my shabby green bistro chair perfectly.
Gardening is my favorite thing to do. I thought I would share some of my flowers with you.
I love to watch the birds and read out back on the patio.
I am obsessed with counting the bird species and am up to 46 in my yard.
My husband says they eat better than we do…..he may be right. :))
We love to entertain in the summer. Everyone gathers on the patio enjoying cocktails and great food.
I spend hours gardening in the spring and summer. By the time fall rolls around I am so done with it.
Last year I planted Peony Poppies and plan on doing it again this spring. I loved their huge heads, yummy goodness of large flowers.
The second of my most favorite flowers is David Austin Roses. They are as large as peonies and flower for most of the summer into fall.
Can you tell I am sooo ready for spring to start??
My favorite time of the year is about to begin and I couldn't be happier.
Thank you so much Kris, for featuring me today.
Thanks so much Shanon. Your girls are so cute and I love love love your outdoor space. Thanks for sharing a little bit about yourself with us. Now that you have gotten to know Shanon please hop over to Susan's blog and get to know another sweet blogger Lori from Not Forgotten Farm.
Have a great week end everyone.
