Can you believe that today is my one year blogging anniversary. Yep, it is. A whole year!
I never knew that I would make so many friends in this virtual world. I certainly didn't know that I would be a painting fanatic either. Y'all did this to me. You have inspired me and really got my creative juices flowing. There is so much talent in blog land and y'all amaze me.
If I have any questions about blogging or even need help choosing a chandelier or a paint color,
you are there to help. I am glad I can call y'all my friends.
I never knew that I would have so many readers, too that don't have blogs. I have been so surprised at the sweet emails that I have received from readers. Here are just two of them.
I didn't expose their email address to insure their privacy.
My name is Kim too and I live in Northern Michigan. I just wanted to let you how much I love your blog. Each day I look forward to seeing what you have posted. You are very talented and your home is so beautiful. I too love too decorate and love my home. Keep posting as I love to see what you are doing. I'm also a huge fan of flea markets, discounts stores, thrift stores etc.. My husband is manager for TJ Maxx. I have to be very careful as I could spend his whole paycheck...ha!
Thanks to all my readers and keep those emails coming!
The post below was my very first post. I was so nervous to push that publish button, but I did and haven't looked back since.
Let's Get To It
January 30, 2010
Well, I am going to enter the wonderful world of blogging. I have been reading your wonderful blogs for more than a year now. My sister was telling me about some decorating blogs she likes to look at and my response was, "what is a blog"?? I am not very computer savvy so I did not know about the wonderful world of blogging! She gave me a list of blogs to look at and I was hooked. Later she introduced me to rate my space. See I need a creative outlet because I love to decorate and love anything that has to do with decorating. I am certainly not saying I am good, I just love it. I started posting on rate my space and that was so much fun until lately. Now I need a new creative outlet thus the new blog. I will be sharing my home, projects, shopping trips and maybe some home tours that I like to go on. I have been very inspired by many blogs and hope that maybe mine will inspire others. This computer thing will be a learning process for me, so bear with me. I have been told it will get easier the longer I do it. So let's get to it!
Come on in and welcome to my home. I am going to share photos of my foyer. I just recently painted my antique chest. I bought this chest at an antique store in Alabama while traveling through from Mississippi. The chest was originally done in a walnut stain. I bought some green paint for the base coat and then added a mocha glaze to it. Sanded the edges to distress it and added more glaze. I am really excited at how good it turned out. I have grown very fond of painted and distressed furniture and this is just the start to more projects I'm sure. Here are a few pictures to enjoy!
Well, I think the photography has improved and I am still painting furniture.
So here's to the next year!
I hope you keep coming back because I sure can't do it without you!!!!
