Major blog Change,,,,,,,,But I think it's right! Please read on!


I had several people that during the One World One Heart Event truly explored all 3 of my blogs and emailed me. Did you know, I actually have 3 blogs? Well, I started one a while back while musing and journaling I guess, called "Willowbrook Lane." There is actually only ONE post on that site to date,,,,,,but it's a site I've decided to develop. Starting with my childhood and growing up in rural King and Snohomish County,,,,,or in my case,  for the majority of my memories: Alderwood Manor, WA. It's part of my family story. And as some of you that know a bit about me,,,,,,it's a LONG and involved story, involving my adoption, my mother's immigration, family secrets, legacies and such.

Therefore, I made a decision. My heart, my stories, my history is important to me. You need not follow, but you are welcome to do so if you would like! It IS an interesting story, I think. One of change,courage, adveristy, romance, strength, growth, spirit and much more.

That said, here's the deal. I'm going to gradually eliminate "ShellinSnohomish"- My blog about life and times here and now,,,,BUT I'm going to incorporate ALL the activities, events, the friends, the community, my Joyworks happenings& coworkers/pics and ties onto my BungalowBling Blog. I KNOW its a mouthfull!!! Sorry!

And, I'm going to give new life to my
because I'm interested in writing about my childhood, my amazing and mysterious heritage and the community that I was brought up in. Life in the PNW,,,,,,Families from Germany, Ireland, Holland and the likes.......I'm excited to write about it, but it may not interest you in the least....Okay,,,,,and I may even write about former marriages/divorce/widowhood and relationships........

So,,,,,You are welcome to "follow" either blog in the future if so inclined. Thanks to those encouraged me to share more of my family and community histories. I think I needed the "nudge."

 And, as said my major blog will continue as "Bungalowbling." But again, you are welcome to follow my personal history blog as well.

Life changes, WE change or grow and I know this is the direction I want to go! If you follow this blog and not "BungalowBling",,,,,,,,I'd love for you to follow there!Or Check up on future posts, that I hope will be of intrigue on

Hugs and love  thanks for your patience AND Insight!! I'm excited about the changes!!!



  1. Very cool Shell - I'll go become a follower of willowbrooklane too. You are such a hoot and such an interesting person - I can't wait to read more. I have two step-daughters, a son from my first marriage, and my dh and I adopted our daughter 22 years ago - wow I can't believe it's been that long - she will be 30 this year. Hugs!

  2. Look at my blog, you're the winner!

    I sent you an email!


  3. I would love to read about your life it sounds very facinating, please share. I think sometimes we hide behind our busines personna and forget to let people know who we really are. So I look forward to reading what you have to say. God bless, Cathy

    PS. thanks so much for commenting on my rant on my blog. Ugh, I was so upset at what happened but thought folks should know.
