I'm so glad to have you here!  On this blog, you'll find a FUN and ever-changing mix of various pretty things for inspiration including crafty creations, recipes, thrifty finds, decor, gardening and DIY projects!!  

Yep - I'm a real live person behind this blog!!  For now, I am an 'undercover blogger' (shhh...makes me feel like a secret agent) because we have little kiddos and just feel more comfortable with not having our home and everything else open to the whole wide world.  You get that, don't you?

A little bit about me:   A few years back...we moved from a larger metro area to a little bit smaller midwestern town and we're loving the 'country' life.   Though life is still crazy with our family, it is a calmer and much more relaxed life!  Just what we envisioned!  We love being surrounded by the forest, lakes, change of the seasons. But....we are NOT off the grid {a girl needs her shopping and wi-fi, right?}  We love to work hard as well as squeeze in time to FUN and play!

Things I adore:  * handmade, vintage, prairie, farmhouse, cottage home decor with a bit of contemporary industrial edge...a rustic modern twist to just about everything I ♥!! 
thrown in
* I just love having my own little NORTHERN COTTAGE Shop ...everything about it from material shopping, to designing, to creating, to photographing, listing, to packaging up pretty parcels for shipping....it's so wonderful to be able to connect with sweet customers...best.job.ever! My tagline is...{a rustic modern boutique...} so fitting!!

* I heart a good deal {thrifting, fleamarkets, auctions - ahhhh} & love passing that on to customers!
* can't get enough yummy recipes {I love to try new recipes and use my family as my guinea pigs recipe critics}; 

* It's a necessity for me to get my creative juices flowing with crafts and diy projects!

I do all of this to make our home a happy spot....welcoming and cozy for this sweet family of mine!

I'm so excited about what lies ahead for the northern cottage shop, our cottage projects, our little family and this fun adventure called life!
