Saturday Spotlight: Christine from Little Brags

Hi, everyone!   Kris from Junk Chic Cottage and I wanted to do a regular feature on our blogs, something unique that hasn't been done before.   So we came up with an idea to 'spotlight the real life behind the blogger' in a more personal way.
There is so much talent and inspiration in blogland, and we thought it would be fun to bring you a closer look at the person behind the blog.

Every week on Saturday we will spotlight a blogger and have them tell us a little bit about themselves and their blogs.  You will be able to see and read about each of the bloggers on both Kris's and my blog. 

      


Today I'd like to introduce you to Christine from Little Brags. Christine has a comfortable, rustic style that I love and a great, upbeat attitude! I also love seeing pics of her adorable bunny-he'll make you smile!
Please sit back, relax, and enjoy getting to know Christine better.
First off, I want to give a BIG thank you to Susan from Must Love Junk and Kris from Junk Chic Cottage for inviting me to be featured here today!!!!!

Hola, I'm Christine from Little Brags. I started my little blog a little over a year ago, after discovering so many wonderful blogs through Pinterest. I was quickly drawn into the beautiful and inspiring land of blogs. I really had no idea what I was doing, I was just so inspired and I wanted to improve our home and share my journey along the way. Here is a little glimpse of my style ....
INSIDE

I really don't know what my style is called "exactly", since I love so many things...But I definitely love rustic accents throughout, nothing too formal. One can never have enough old crates, string lights and lanterns...lol 
Outside

So, what can I say about myself? I was born and raised in Germany. I moved to the US in 1993 at the age of 19 to get married to my husband of 20 years. We have one little 8 year old boy who is truly a gift from God. Here is our little Family of three.
Family

We live in a little subdivision on the outskirts of Olympia, WA in the beautiful and wet Pacific Northwest.
I am a Bookkeeper for a local Real Estate Company that is owned by my husbands Mom and Dad. Since I work for Family I have been blessed with flexible hours. I am home early enough to pick up our son from school every day and I was able to work out of our home a lot through the first years and avoid the "Day-Care thing".


We also have a little fuzzy rabbit and a tortoise. Sadly, we just lost our sweet sweet Newfoundland Bruce this year. He was almost 12 years old and we miss him much!
Pets
Thanks so very much for coming over and reading about me.
I tried to keep is short and sweet....I know how overwhelming ones inbox gets with blog posts to keep up with.

If you liked my style, please come visit me at Little Brags

Christine, thanks so much for sharing with us today! Please visit her blog Little Brags, then head over to visit Kris's blog to read more about Theresa from The Old White House!
Have a great day :)

  6. Christine! I knew your bunny before I knew you, lol! He is quite famous this week through blogland - I have seen him featured 2 or 3 times! It's great that you're here in the US, and able to make a family life while providing for your family, too. Win-win! I look forward to reading more of your blog. Thanks again, Susan, I love these features each week.
