Saturday Spotlight: Life Behind the Blogger

Susan from Must Love Junk, and myself 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 Susan's and my blog.

Ruth from White Whimsy

Good Saturday Morning.  This week for Spotlight I am introducing you to a sweet blogger that shares my love of whites.  I love that she re loves vintage pieces with history into her home and decor.  Please take a few minutes to get to know this sweet blogger.

Hi, my name is Ruth and my blog is White Whimsy. When I was asked to do a Saturday Spotlight at Junk Chic Cottage I was honored and excited that I had been asked to share about myself and my blog.  When I started writing this post though I was at a loss for words.  So here it goes I will start with my family.  I live in Kansas with my husband and two beautiful daughters (my husband is behind the camera taking the picture).

We also have an adorable pug named Ollie.

After years of looking at many beautiful blogs I decided to start my own as a type of picture diary to keep track of some of my redecorating and DIY projects.  This coffee bar is one of my projects.

I do love my coffee and when I saw this burlap coffee bean bag at the antique mall, I brought it home and framed it.

I love decorating with antiques and things I have found at garage sales.  I get giddy when I find a deal or something that I can transform.  Here a a few of my great finds.

If you couldn’t tell by the name of my blog, I love WHITE!  Some of my daughters friends even refer to our house as the “white house.”

I also love baking and reading and recently I have gone back to college to get my degree in elementary education.  I plan on graduating May 2015 and am anxious to get back to more decorating and diy projects. Thanks Kris for inviting me to be part of Spotlight Saturday and share a bit about myself.    

Thank you Ruth for letting us into your home and to get to know you a little better.  Now that you have gotten to know Ruth from White Whimsy please hop over to Susan's blog and meet Jen from Apple And Orchard.  

Have a great rest of the week end.
