I am the unplanned child to a woman so strong. A sister to brothers. A dreamer. A writer. A mother. A lover. Ninja in the dark. Star shaped in a very square world. Teacher to eager ears. My learning desire is quenchless. On the outside looking in. Not interested in the fake. Wizard when I can find my wand. Fascinated by fireflies. Fighter of underdogs. Small, but mighty. Believer in superheroes. Ecstatic to be different. Provider of nourishing meals, sassy when needed, quirky at best. Epic concoction maker. Boredom doesn’t exist.
I am super excited to be going on-line with atkokosplace. How blogging came to be….My tech-y/social media savvy kids kept on telling me with each finished project I did, every bottle of lotion I created, people I’ve helped, “Mom, you need to blog about that…” I had no clue what blogging was! Through their encouragement and help and belief in my many works… Thank you kids. I hope I make you proud.
I’ve always enjoyed working with my hands. I can remember as a little girl making a car that was just my size out of a cardboard box. I even outfitted it with a rear view mirror and personalized license plate! I made all the furniture for my Barbies and when GI Joe’s came into the picture I sewed countless tiny tents and sleeping bags. The first time I started working with wood was in the fifth grade. I made Japanese sandals out of scrap lumber. As a child I was given gifts that were thinking gifts, like building things such as a miniature house or boat that I could sail in the gutter on a rainy day. Countless hours of crocheting and macrame and making bracelets kept me happily entertained. In my science kits I remember making a working volcano among other fun experiments. I loved every minute of creating and concocting. Fascinated and hooked to this day I am!
At Kokos Place is a lifestyle blog where I share what’s going on in and around my life! Here is where I show you how I have re-purposed – up-cycled items, build new things, sew and glue…well you get the idea! Reviews on stuff can be found here too! Blogging my experiences is another extension of how I show love and appreciation for the people around me. The same goes for every meal I make and every tincture I come up with, love always goes into the mix. And I hope to share them with you! There will be all kinds of “life stuffs” tossed in as well, after all, this blog is a little about me; what I like, what moves me, what makes me think, what makes me sigh and what makes me wonder. I imagine this blog will continue to evolve as life evolves…
Until then, I’d love to have you follow along on my journey.
❀ Please like, follow and share. I do appreciate your support! All the best, Koko❀

Day made! Hahaha! I didn’t really know what to write and some as you saw was a little tongue in cheek! Your presence is always welcomed on my blog. Looking forward to reading more from you! Best wishes. Koko:)
Lovely blog! Look forward to reading many of your posts:)
I really appreciate that! Thank you kindly for stopping by. I hope to see more of you here! Be well. Peace, Koko 🙂

You have just made my day! It’s so nice to come across such thoughtful people. You are that person. Thank you for commenting and your generous time to read my blog. I go, go, go all during the day, but I try my best to read other blogs and catch up. I do appreciate your time and kindness! May your days begin and end with happy thoughts. Hugs, Koko 🙂
Nice to meet you, Koko! You seem to be a very interesting person! Thanks for dropping by!
That’s sweet of you to say! Hope your weekend is fabulous! Best to you!
Thank you for sharing you with us.
You have a very captivating about page! I’m so happy that we met!
I’m happy too that we met! Be well and have a wonderful rest of the weekend!
Thank you! I promise! On my way out to scout the best places to capture the special moon tomorrow morning.
I know! I can’t wait. It’s gonna be gorgeous!
how was the moon where you are? I’m in Los Angeles – went out at 5pm, then at 9pm, & looked like same as usual moon?
You know I think it looks the same. I’m in Tennessee, but I am from California. The moon was incredible here, but I feel like I’ve seen incredible in Cali. Not sure that makes sense. Have a glorious evening Daal! 🙂
Makes sense, yes. Well the moon is wonderful regardless of my silly overexpectations
Nothing silly to have wonder at how magical the moon may look like elsewhere. That’s how dreams start and hope sparks. Have a beautiful weekend.
dear Koko – what a lovely way to say it! hope your weekend is great too 🙂
Well, I had to pop over and check out your blog after you found mine. You are an amazing and talented woman! We even have the same coffee maker. I love the ideas you have posted and agree with your kids, you need to blog! Thanks for sharing and I look forward to reading about your ideas and corner of the world. Karen
Karen, your thoughtful words made my day! Thank you so much for taking the time. I know how hard it is to carve out the time and am appreciative that you gave me a bit of yours. Much happiness to you in the new year! And I look forward to reading more of your blog! Be well, Koko
Thank you for liking my paintings Koko. You have a nice blog!
Kind of you to say so. Thank you too! Have a wonderful evening! 🙂
Hi Koko! What an amazing About page you have – it’s so open and frank and tells us so much about you. I’ve come across some About pages that are little more than a sentence and I do like to read a bit more! You certainly have a lot of interests and talents and I admire your skills in DIY. My husband’s the one in our house who loves making things. Wood is his favourite material, too. I’m looking forward to reading your posts.
Your lovely comment took me aback! I really appreciate your kindness. I wasn’t sure how to write an about me. I still don’t hahaha. I’m glad it didn’t bore you! I hope to see more of you here and hope there will be things that interest you! Be well and happy new year. All the best to you! Koko 🙂
My nickname is KOKO! Very rare to meet another “K” one 🙂 So lovely to find your site.
Yay. Happy to be part of the Koko club! Thank you for checking out the site. Looking forward to putting up more posts to keep awesome people coming back! Take care!!! 🙂

Meows and purrs,
Beba and Barmalei, and their human, Dolly

So real! Love it.
That’s so nice of you to say! Day made! Thank you. 🙂
Glad I found your blog!
Thanks for choosing to follow my blog!
Nice to meet you, Koko! I’ve only read your About page so far and I’m intrigued. Your opening is real, and honest. I look forward to reading more. I have kids and believe me, they know…when they pick up on something and push you to do it, roll with it! 🙂
Kids have a way of making you do things, that’s for sure! 😉 Mine are grown up and they still have a way with making me do things! Hahahaha! Glad you are intrigued! Thank you so much for spending some time here. Take care Eartha!
Oh btw, that legal disclosure gave me a good chuckle! For some it might just be necessary lol.
Teehee! Chuckling is a good thing! 😉
So creative and unique, Koko! I love it, but what is a tincture? 🙄 LOL!
Bahahaha!🤗Unique is a word that comes up when around me. I’m known for measuring and mixing some kind of tincture concoction. I’m getting something right, as I feel great and can’t even remember the last time I was sick. I was just thinking about traveling somewhere today and your comment popped up. I need to swoop on over to your blog since I can’t go anywhere anytime soon! Have a great day! Peace ✌️💫🦋
Aww! Why can’t you go anywhere?
I’m going back to school. So much to do, so little time! 😉🤗😁
Looking forward to reading more from you. You seem very lovely.
Hi Koko, thank you for taking the time to stop by my page. I love your blog, you cover a wide area of interests, very relevant 🙂
What a thoughtful comment. Thank you for popping in. Hope to see you again! Take care!!! 😀
