Hi y’all! A little about me…
I’m Belle, a Texas native who loves fun, food, creativity, fashion, life, friends & family. I like, BUSY and I like to share my busyness with others!
GCC was started as a creative outlet. A way for my family to “stay connected” and as a means to share some of my ideas and thoughts.
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 in this great state. 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, our first grandchild who rocks my world and another on the way!!!
I enjoy antiquing, entertaining and traveling. In my spare time….I enjoy painting, sewing, woodworking, and creating wonderful & delicious things in the kitchen. I LOVE old doors, old homes, architecture, people and lifting my spirits through fashion!
I have done many things in this life of mine, but the one thing that has brought me more joy and I am most proud of is being a mother!
The name: Gully Creek Cottage.
Having grown up along the coast, I have a love of water. 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.
Thank YOU for stopping in & I hope you will follow along~
