Welcome to my blog (year TEN!) – My name is Barbara Stroud… I live in Charleston, SC and I love to write about things that I’m passionate about. ART, FOOD and HOME… My blog started out as barbarastroud.wordpress.com but I recently (2014) have my own domain… sounds important doesn’t it? ha ha… http://www.artfoodhome.com!
ART I love to share the artists that I come across who’s work I am passionate about with you. There are so many talented artists it truly amazes me. I am an aspiring artist, well, kind of. I need to work alot harder to become a real artist. I have many friends who are great successful artists. I come from a family of artsy people, so I was hoping I totally had the genes to pick up a brush and create a masterpiece… hmmm, nope. Have to do it the hard way… by painting. That’s ok, I look forward to every little bit of information that I receive from various artists! We love to collect art, we have wonderful collection of paintings. Art is like jewelry for your walls. You can have a plain room and dress it up with art work, LOVE IT. FOOD I love recipes, love to cook and bake, so I will include the best of the best here for you! HOME My husband and I love our home. We love to decorate, change things around and find things that are special to us. I will also share the neat places in Charleston, SC that we visit, restaurants, neat shops, galleries, etc.
I also share with you other things that fly through my head that I feel you may be interested in! Check in often or subscribe so you don’t miss anything. It’s my New Year’s resolution to keep up with this blog. It has been my goal to get this up and running by 2011, ok, so I started it at 3:52 on New Year’s Eve (2011)… and need to run to the store, walk the dog, etc. etc., ha ha… I look forward to hearing your comments!

Updated June 11, 2015 – boy does time ever fly! I’m still going strong, haven’t missed a day of posting… Hey, if you’re an artist, and your work jives with what’s on this site, submit your name and website (via the submission page at the top of the screen) – same with architects! Check out that page for more information! I need to give my husband kudos for recommending topics for me to cover, he’s great at it! Thank you Fred!
Updated January 3, 2016 – this year began year 6 of this daily blog, woohoo! Again, thanks go to Fred (husband) for thinking up good topics and reminding me to take photos of food before it’s too late 😉

Updated January 24, 2020 – this begins year 10! Beginning this year it’s not a daily blog, but as close as I can get to it! House Plans, Artists, Recipes and Photographs are the main features. I’m aiming for four posts/week – more than enough to keep me busy and keep you with some house plans, recipes and artists to see!
