Welcome to Charm & Grace Cottage!

Some of you may be familiar with my other website and blog, and you may be wondering why I am starting a new blog. The Charm & Grace web magazine is published seasonally, so it isn't updated frequently and isn't a great place to put new and fresh content. Since my Charm & Grace Blog is greatly personal in nature... featuring my artwork, my travel snippets, and my personal feelings about this or that... the posts there can tend toward wordiness and complication. I wanted to have a place to share little bite sized flourishes of loveliness about things, even more frequently than I would post them to my personal blog. I also wanted to check out the features of a "ready made" blog from one of the major blog hosts. So Charm & Grace Cottage -- via Blogger -- was my answer. I am hoping to have something short and simple, yet fresh and new each day to inspire and promote creativity. So, welcome to my cottage... the door is always open, the kettle is on for tea, and the canvas is blank and waiting for just the right colors!

Grace and charm to you...


  1. Hi Christi, congratulations on your new blog, I'll be a regular visitor. : ) I was just visiting your art site and strolling through how you make your beautiful house portraits. The process is wonderful to see, I look forward to seeing more of your art here on this blog.

  2. Yes, I agree with Ruth. It's always a blast to be in on the "ground floor" of a blog and to watch it unfold with all the grace and charm that I know will be in evidence here. May I add this blog to my blogroll?
