Jane and Leo: Cottage at the Crossroads
Hi Everyone. This week I would love to introduce you to a wonderful couple that have a great story to share and a beautiful blog. Enjoy getting to know this dynamic duo.
Hi there, everyone! I'm Jane and my husband and I blog at Cottage at the Crossroads. We are so honored that Kris is shining her spotlight on us today. Thanks so much for inviting us to share a little more about ourselves with your readers, Kris. Our story starts with a little girl who grew up in a small community called Cross Roads in South Carolina.
She lived in a white farmhouse with a red tin roof. Her parents had a large garden and when she was old enough, she definitely had to do her share of working in that garden. She would even go to the extreme of putting on her bikini to do some hoeing and getting a suntan at the same time. Luckily, the farmhouse was out in the country and no one had to witness such a sight! She received her love of flowers from her mother who always had something blooming or growing inside and outside the house year round.
As so many females who grew up in the late 60s and early 70s, she had long hair down to her waist and cut it the first week when she went to college. Having always loved old things, she started attending auctions and visiting antique stores while in college.
|Here she is in her Roman clothing that her mother made for her. Oh, those were the fun years, but she eventually retired after teaching 31 years.|
Thanks again, Kris, for inviting us to share our story with your wonderful readers. I invite you to come by and visit us at our blog, Cottage at the Crossroads. We LOVE making new friends!
Thank you Jane and Leo for sharing with all of us today. Please hop over to introduce yourself to Jane and Leo and check out their wonderful blog.
