Welcome to my new blog home!!  I recently decided to move my blog from blogger to WordPress and basically get a fresh start.  I’m so exited to get started sharing with you some of the things that have been going on here at Maple Cottage.

We had to say goodbye to our beloved cat Daphne this past May.  She was a big part of my life as well as my blog where you can find numerous pictures of her.  She was 11 years old and is missed every day.


With that piece of sad news out of the way I can tell you we have added a new member to our family.  While I would love to have another cat my allergies just won’t cooperate and allow that to happen.  In August we brought home our second English Springer Spaniel, “Banks” who is named after the Outer Banks of NC; where we love to go in the summer.  He and Maple (our first springer) have become the best of friends.  I’m sure I will be sharing many stories and pictures of these two!  There is never a dull moment at Maple Cottage!

Between chasing these two around and spending most of my time watching my daughter play volleyball I have gotten a smidgen of stitching done and have several projects in the works.  I’m exited to share them with you in the coming weeks!
