Welcome to my home – Dagmar’s Home
I’m blogging from our Blue Cottage, a little house at the end of the road in Westchester, NY.
Blogging about being a mom, farmhouse and cottage decor, easy DIY projects, thrifting, vintage treasures, green living, and organic food is my passion.
I love sharing my journey of living a simple, natural, and healthy life.
I write about finding inexpensive ways to decorate the Blue Cottage — our curtains are $1 dish towels hung on tension rods — and there’s always some kind of DIY project I’m in the middle of.
I grew up in my parents’ antique store in Germany.
They were collectors (oh, yes, they collected weights) and our house was filled with beautiful antiques, which explains my love for everything vintage.
After I moved to Los Angeles 25 years ago, I studied acting in Hollywood and enrolled at Pasadena City College more out of necessity than desire.
No one was more surprised than me when it spit me out as the valedictorian.
I received my BA in English from UCLA, where I was a staff copyeditor for the Daily Bruin.
While working as a subtitle editor for 6 years, I founded imPROOF Proofreading, Editing, and Social Media Consulting.
One fateful day in October 2004 I tried a new yoga class and met my future husband — the instructor.
I planned our wedding by myself from Los Angeles, and we got married at Lyndhurst Castle in Tarrytown, NY.
Exactly one year later our son Landon was born. He’s a happy, blue-eyed boy, now 12 years old. He loves to play the violin and tennis.
This might sound like a fairy tale, but it’s not. We are just like any other family trying to make ends meet after moving to Westchester to raise Landon around extended family.
It’s one of the most expensive areas in the country. Couponing and finding the best deals for food, home decor, traveling, and clothing has become a fun challenge for me.
Enjoy Dagmar’s Home!
