I’m Belle, a Texas native who loves fun, food, creativity, and my friends & family. I like, BUSY and I like to share my crazy-busy with others!
While finding it hard to sit still, I always feel the need to be “doing” and “creating”. GCC helps me document that creativity. So I write about the things I love.
I grew up in South Texas but have lived in many areas of Texas and until recently, the Midwest. I’ve been happily married for 36 years to a wonderful man that came up to me on campus one day, and asked if I was the one working on the float.
It’s a lovely long story. We’ve had a blessed life with two awesome kids and a (bonus) son-in-law, and two beautifully fantastic GRANDboys!!!
I enjoy antiquing, entertaining and being creative. In my spare time….I enjoy painting, woodworking, and creating wonderful & delicious things in the kitchen. I LOVE everything about old doors, old homes, architecture, and fashion!
I have done many things in my life, but the one thing that has brought me more joy and I am most proud of, is being a MOMMA!
The name: Gully Creek Cottage.
I have a love of water. I grew up along the coast, and although I no longer live along the coast, I’ve somehow managed to always end up BY or UP, a creek! At one time surrounded by both a gully AND a creek! The Cottage —well, because of my love of dwellings.
I love that you’ve stopped by and hope you do so often~ blessings!
