1905 4th of july open house

I’m having a little open house at my 1905 Cottage today and I’m super excited about it! I’ll be putting pictures on my Instagram Account throughout the day of different rooms.

Connect with me there to join in the fun! I might even make an Instagram video of the cottage and post that!!


And speaking of Instagram, my good friend Rhonna of Rhonna Designs just released a new app that you can use with Instagram. It’s amazing and she has included TONS of great fonts, graphics, sayings and more. It’s such an awesome way to make your Instagram pictures even cuter.


  • All 27 of her Insta Fonts (w/ 26 designs in each) are included in the Design Packs. 
  • 29 amazing fonts for text
  • 8 photo filters
  • 36 exclusive frames
  • 9 exclusive backgrounds 
  • and more!

You can see some of the ways people are using the app if you search these hashtags in IG — #rhonnadesigns_app #rhonnadesigns #heyrhonna.
