I've been overwhelmed by the thoughtfulness of fellow bloggers this past week. How appropriate considering it was just Random Acts of Kindness Week and Valentine's Day!
Ashlee at A Prairie Cottage and Dana of The Boyers at Home were kind enough to extend Stylish Blogger Awards to this modest blog.
And then Kathy at A Delightsome Life highlighted my Garden Dreamin' post at her blog's weekly Inspired By You feature.
I am truly humbled by and appreciative of you ladies. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Ashlee's been blogging almost two years now about her adorable WWII-era cottage. She recently finished remodeling her kitchen and what a transformation it was! She also crafts and appreciates all things vintage. No wonder I like her blog. :)
Dana is a new blogger--like me!--from Oklahoma who I found recently as I was looking for retro kitchen inspiration for my sister's house. Dana painted her lower kitchen cabinets a gorgeous turquoise blue and installed new wood counter tops--her kitchen has real pizazz! She also likes to junk and has been helping her daughter re-do her new house.
Kathy's romantic blog is full of Victoria Magazine-inspired decorating. Her posts are thoughtful and sincere, and she's a Southern gal to boot. Sit down to her blog with a warm cup of tea and check out her tutorial on making faux mercury glass; I'm hoping to try it very soon.
I write this blog for the simple enjoyment of participating in a community of women who like creating beautiful spaces and objects, and transforming things with their own hands. I cherish all the comments and emails I receive, the budding blogging friendships, and I have to say I feel so fortunate to be a little part of such a creative, supportive environment.
Thank you again, Ashlee, Dana and Kathy, and *everyone* who reads this blog. Y'all are appreciated more than you know and you are what makes blogging such an enjoyable pastime for me.
