...Blog Hop...

 Hello friends!
It's an exciting time here at Mill Hill Meadow!
A new month has begun, and we are about to embark on Autumn.... my most favorite time of year.
New beginnings.

I begin this month by participating in a "Blog Hop".
I was invited by my blog friend Judy to participate. Judy blogs at
Judy has an adorable cottage that she shares with her sweet husband. She loves to decorate her cottage and loves home-keeping.  Her Gold Country Cottage is chock full of charm.

 Let me introduce you to three more wonderful bloggers:

The first blogger that I'd like to spotlight, is Kim :  You can link to her blog by clicking the attached link.

In Kim's words :
My Field of Dreams is about my garden, my family and my attempts at sewing, wood projects, gardening and just life in general.


The second blogger I'd like to spotlight, is Lynne.

Lynne blogs at   Lynne loves Ireland, and first visited in 1998.

She and her husband stayed in an adorable cottage in Bantry Co Cork. She enjoys telling and writing about the stories of her life and photographs. You can count on seeing many pictures of her beautiful gardens and flowers.
 { Edited to add Brooke's current blog.... the old blog link got messed up}
The third blogger that I'd like to spotlight, is Brooke:
Brooke is a very special blogger to me; she is our daughter!
Brooke blogs at :

In Brooke's own words :Eclectic, geeky, goofy, and romantic. All good descriptions of who I am and what I like.

In my words, Brooke is an amazing person!! She is brilliant, beautiful, and generous of spirit.
Brooke is a kidney transplant patient!! She had a kidney transplant 11 years ago now, and has not only survived kidney disease, but she has absolutely thrived in every way!

My blog is "Mill Hill Meadow"  is about me,  a reformed home renovator.
 After 20+ years of saving old homes; I have packed up my paint brushes, electrical wire and saws so that I may spend more time enjoying life with my family.
My questions and answers follow :
  *1. What am I working on?
 I am working on travelling more, polishing my baking and cooking skills, and reading to my hearts content. Then there's always the new decorating projects. Some habits die harder than others.

*2. How does my work differ from others in its genre?
Let's put it this way. I have been married 27 years, moved 13 times, crawled under and through houses that needed some major loving, and raised 3 children. All of my DIY skills were developed long before DIY was cool. Championing old homes has been my life.

*3. Why do I create or write what I do?
I have been a lifelong journal-er, and this is just an extension of that

*4. How does your creative process work?
Instinct and inspiration, and a lot of good luck.
I sincerely hope that you will take just a minute, and visit the three bloggers that I have highlighted in this blog hop. 
I'm certain that you will enjoy their sweet blogs.
Happy Fallidays Y'all!!
