I am delighted to direct you today, May 2nd to my friend Kris's blog in Chicagoland. I am today's featured Saturday Spotlight, life behind the blogger. Kris asked me when I was a newbie blogger to be "put in the spotlight", but trying to heal my heart after the loss of my son I declined. I truly hoped to be asked again at a later date and I'm absolutely delighted that Kris did just that! 

Saturday spotlight is to shed some personal light on the person behind the blog. Today I share some things you may not know about me. Please click on the link for Junk Chic Cottage it will take you to Kris's fun and creative blog. She and her hubby Terry together design and create the most amazing architectural furniture and items from salvage. Kris affectionately refers to her keen eye of finding treasures as "junkiń".
From the bottom of my heart thank you Kris for putting me "in the spotlight" today.



  1. Oh indeed I will visit, on my way over there.


  2. What a great Spotlight. I am your newest follower and I love your blog. It is so nice to meet you. Yes, Kris is a very special person and I love her dearly.

  3. I absolutely love the photo of you and John - what a striking couple you two are.

  4. Hi Vera - I really enjoyed reading your feature at Junk Chic Cottage. You are a sweet and talented lady and it was so nice getting to know more about you!

  5. Good morning, Vera. Thank you for being spotlighted at Kris' blog today. Kris is a wonderful soul, who is gracious to share her friends met through blogging.

  16. Hello Vera, so great to read your feature over at Junk Chic Cottage. I mentioned in my comments over there that I had seen your blog name come up on various social media and intended to stop by for a visit. So here I am and low and behold I noticed I am one of your Google Friend Connect followers. What the heck!!! I need to spend more time looking at my GFC Feed! *blush* That changes today because it sounds like you are one talented lady! I'm so glad Kris decided to ask you a second time :)

  17. Dear Vera
    It was lovely to meet you all over again on Kris's Saturday Blogger feature.
    I've learnt more about you now and feel a connection.
    I think it is the same for all of us - we have backgrounds to our lives which most of us don't share on our blogs - yet knowing more about each other strengthens the bond.
    I loved your post - thank you dear Vera!
