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.
I'd like to welcome Jonni from Jasper's Cottage today.I find Jonni's writing style to be interesting and witty, and I always enjoy her posts!
Please sit back, relax, and enjoy getting to know Jonni better.
Thanks, Susan, for inviting me to participate in your Saturday Spotlight!
My name is Jonni (Johnny, like a boy) and I write a little blog called Jasper's Cottage.
My blog was named in memory of my beloved golden boy, the light of my life for almost 16 years.
These days I share the cottage with my husband (we just celebrated 29 years together last weekend) and our little guy, Shifu.
I can't believe how quickly these 29 years have flown by. That's us on our wedding day. We're planning (and I will be blogging about) an amazing celebration for our upcoming 30th...we just haven't decided what it will be yet.
My style is a little country, a tad bit boho, a smidgen of cowgirl and a whole mess of vintage. Oh yeah, and I really like hats.
We met in Northern Virginia where we lived for several years but for the last 16 years we've lived along the central coast of California near the cozy village of Carmel-by-the-Sea. Living here provides constant inspiration for a couple of my favorite things - taking pictures of cottage style architecture and doing historical research on the village.
I like to read blogs about decorating and painting so I recently decided to change a few things in our cottage. Of course I started with the kitchen and painted all the cabinets white. Our kitchen is teeny tiny but oh, so cute. It has original pink tile counter tops, which I just love.
I love to travel and blog about it so it was only natural for that theme to appear in the master bedroom.
I can't seem to settle down to just one interest or style so that's why I write about a little of everything at Jasper's Cottage.
