Sad but true this little blog has been neglected in the last week or so whilst Lilly Cottage went through it's 'rebirth'. I think that is the best way to look at it, change is good and now I only have to please myself ( not that it was hard to go on the way we always did at LC but that ship has sailed). I have a feeling this will be a metaphor laden post.
My ? problem now is what to do with this blog. I started this blog so that I wasn't filling the 'shop' blog up with my tales of everyday. When there was two of us at Lilly Cottage I would always worry that I wasn't portraying the right message about the sort of business we had if I talked about home things, or showed half finished projects and let my guard down a little. I didn't want to 'speak' for Laura if I wanted to add a link to the sidebar unless I had checked it with her first. I did call myself the blog hog as I wrote the majority of the 200 plus posts on the LIlly Cottage blog but in truth I don't know whether Laura could actually find something to rabbit on about the way I can.
Laura does a lot of blog reading and favours the home/ designer decorater blogs with few words and lots of lovely pictures, so I think for a while there I was trying to do the same sort of thing ( even though we are not that sort of shop/blog). Recently I added in some 'fun' posts like Wordless Wednesday and Find it Friday.
My question now is, do I keep this blog or do I merge the two back together now that I am the sole LIlly Cottager. What do you think I should do....do you think I should just keep to a few OK well a lot of pretty pictures on Lilly C. or should I allow myself to wander around in my comfy PJ's over there every so often?
I think I probably know the answer but would like the few people who read this blog to let me know their solution.
Meanwhile here are two paintings I am working on, the smaller is all bar finished and the peacock has quite a bit more work to do yet but I thought I would give you a sneak peek.
Speak to you soon,ttfn kiss noises LInda
