Did you know Dagmar is just as lovely and wonderful IRL than she is online? Well, she is. ~ @Mommyfriend on Twitter
Welcome to my home – Dagmar’s Home
I’m blogging from the 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, organic food, and traveling 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 — my curtains are $1 dish towels hung on tension rods — and there’s always some kind of DIY project I’m in the middle of.
Couponing and finding the best deals for food, home decor, traveling, and clothing has become a fun challenge for me.
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.
In 2009, when my son was 2 years old, I started writing this blog to be able to stay home with him and write about what I’m passionate about. It was called Dagmar’s momsense and has since evolved into Dagmar’s Home.
Enjoy Dagmar’s Home!
