Welcome to Boxwood Cottage!

So glad that you found me! My blog is about everything I love like gardening, decorating my home & garden and crafting. Although I'm from Germany I write my blog in English so that hopefully every visitor can read it. Hope you'll stay a while and will leave me a comment so that I know that you were here! xoxo Carola

Hello dear blogging friends and readers,
once again a whole month has almost passed without a sign of life of me here on my blog. June was not as beautiful as April and May weatherwise and I spend a lot of my spare time in the studio. I finally learned how to cut glass myself thanks to the soldering queen "Sally Jean", looks like I always had the wrong tools and techniques oh well. So now I can make little trinket boxes and cut the glass in just the exact size needed and I even cut my first bird shape and soldered a two sided lace bird. So fun! Possibilities are endless now and I just can't stop. How do you like my trinket boxes so far?
I promise to be back in July with a long post with big pictures, but for today this will have to do.
Sending very happy Summer wishes to all of you!
xoxo~ Carola

So good to see you.
What a busy month you have had and all those lovely creations!
Hope you are well...
One of my favorite days was spent in Sally Jean's studio in Portland. Now the studio is gone and she has set up home on the web..lucky us :D

Liebe Carola, wie jedes Mal, wenn ich Bilder von Deinem wunderschönen Arbeitplatz sehe, könnte ich vor Neid erblassen. Bei uns in der Wohnung fehlt leider absolut der Platz, wo man so etwas auch nur ansatzweise realisieren könnte.
Aber durch Deine schönen Bilder kann ich wenigstens davon träumen!
Ich wünsche Dir ein schönes Wochenende, liebe Grüße, Monika
