Today I got a message from the blog “England on a Shoestring” that they featured my blog services on their blog! I’m so happy to be associated with such a wonderful blog.
Not only am I a frequent traveler to the British Isles, I also have an “addiction” for tea, a passion for BBC Radio (which I listen to while designing blogs) and my home is decorated with items from the UK. My husband has a collection of PG Wodehouse books that fills an almost floor to ceiling bookshelf. My daily “haunt” is BBCRadio4Extra, where I have my very own customized profile with my favorite stations on it!
I also share some additional similarities with the “England on a Shoestring” blog.
My home is decorated with many sustainable, reused/recycled/upcycled items, I use earth friendly cleaning solutions when possible (limiting harmful chemicals) and make sure the products I purchase are not animal tested. I’m a foster mom and animal shelter volunteer who spends her time rescuing homeless cats and kittens when not blog designing.
My husband and I live very simply and we do not have anything of “luxury”. Even my wedding ring is a “hand me down” (his grandmother’s ring). We care more about living with an ecological conscience and helping homeless animals than we do about having “nice things”. My idea of a happy home is shabby furniture and the presence of homeless cats & kittens to care for and find homes for. God gave us all the opportunity to do something for others, and He chose my husband and I to house the homeless.
So, I was so happy to be featured at “England on a Shoestring” because this blog focuses on charities, budgeting, living simply, living sustainably, and also helping homeless animals. Plus it is about my beloved England!
Thanks for the feature, I feel so honored to have been picked by you!
