I’m just popping in to let you know that after a LOT of work, I was able to at least restore the design and old content for orangedoorblog.com! The later posts I wrote will have to be re-done, but at least it’s something! Stay tuned, folks. Orange Door Blog and [myself] Heather España are finally going to be joining up into one awesome new brand 3.21.2016!

Here is a little sneak peek of what is to come. . .

I am very excited about the new blog design, and to at last be in a place where I can blog to my heart’s content!  I have many projects going on at the Orange Door Cottage, and so much more I want to share with you. 

Thank you so much for your patience.  Very soon now!

Well, believe it or not, I am working on redesigning a new and better orange door cottage blog!  Lots of behind the scenes stuff going on, and several projects in the works.  I’m very excited to show you, but you’ll have to be patient for just a wee bit longer!

We had a pretty freaking fantastic holiday season this year.  Partly because we got to sleep right next to the Christmas tree.  And we can’t move it back yet because I haven’t painted the bedroom yet.  Ooooh, darn.  We’ll just have to leave it like this for a couple more weeks. 

Here’s our winter wonderland. . .

Above: you can see we finally parted with the big brown couch, so now we just have two couches like most normal people.  Except our bed is in the living-room, so we’re clearly not normal.

 Above: our crazy nativity scene, complete with Batman and a Guatemalan Mary and Joseph with a giant Caucasian baby Jesus.

Above: That’s Stewy the Christmas Angel on the left [I made him quite a while ago], and a new ornament for this year.  It’s an orange door cottage!  I found it at a local antique mall.

Above: the wreath was similar to last year, but with the addition of the metal flower I purchased at Crafty Wonderland in Portland this year.

Above: these two cuties are new this year, also found at our local antique mall.  On the right is a Santa I found last year, and this year I found his snowman friend!

I hope you all had fantastic New Year parties and are excited for the months to come.
