Yes, there was a bump on my end at first in getting the posts to send to subscribers from the new blog, then it took a bit of time for the interworkings of the system to populate (I don't understand all this!), but I do believe everything is working properly now. Have you received email updates for the new blog this week? Please let me know if you haven't! Answer to the second question: I'm sorry, I don't have plans for our cabin at its exact size. There are many reasons for this, which I explained in a blog post here: http://www.assortmentblog.com/assortment/2016/10/wheres-the-665-sq-ft-house-plan.html

Interesting...I don't use blog readers, myself, so don't know much about them. I know that Bloglovin' is a favorite of several followers, and you can always sign up by email by clicking the Subscribe button at the bottom of the new blog's main page. This will send notice of new posts right to your email inbox. Hope this helps, would love to have to come along to the new place!

Those Christmas decor images have been steeping in my mind ever since Wednesday. I love how other people's vision, talent, and work can inspire and influence us. It pulls us out of our own small thinking and makes us consider... Continue reading

I bought this towel locally, but just edited to incude a link to similar dish towels on Amazon. I honestly don't slow down enough to deal with stains on my dish towels (gasp!), though I have had good success with using Fels Naphtha to remove stains on our white clothing and the sofa's slipcover. This towel pictured must have been the least used in the linen basket, and therefore still the whitest ;)

Oh, we stopped buying white boy socks a long time ago! Check out my answer a few comments up about getting stains out. Like you, I use & (really) enjoy dish towels when they're new & white!

Nellie doesn't get to be in the pasture very often, so this was a BIG DEAL. She smiled the whole time - that is when she didn't have her face stuck ear-deep in the snow!

But I may be sitting around like a frenzied knitter! It's Monday, and I still haven't gotten the yarn...

This is such a great question! I'd like to dive into my answer more deeply in a future blog post, but the short answer is, not everyone in our house is at the same place, nor have I found the industry to offer the same solutions and opportunities for all ages and genders. Therefore: do what you can with what you have.
