The "Welcome" to your home starts at the front door.
I'm in the process of painting my front door. I started at the beginning of summer, got the primer and first coat on and then was stopped by all the humidity we've been having this summer. The paint never seemed to dry!
Every day I leave and enter by my front door ..... and I hate being in the middle of an unfinished project this length of time.
So ... here's some great front doors that are finished!
I watched "The Holiday" with Cameron Diaz and Jude Law last night. But the real star for me was the English cottage Cameron stayed in. It wasn't even a real cottage, just a stage ... but if it was, I could just move in and love it.
The rooms are scrumptious .... cozy, warm, soooooo English. I LOVE this kitchen.
a cozy library ....
Even without Jude Law ... a fabulous bedroom ....
I love English cottages. Couldn't you just move in to one of these:
Ahhhh ... my fantasy ... a cottage in England. So Jane Austen.
I started blogging last August. I'm not a very technical person, but I started following blogs and thought "I can do this too".
I have found blogging to be inspiring in so many ways .... it incents me to keep going on my list of to do's; it's a log of all I've done in the past year; and the people I have met on-line are wonderful ..... full of suggestions, encouragement and ideas.
I'm never going to be one of the 'big' bloggers, but the thrill of just one comment keeps me going.
Here's my list for happy blogging:
1. Show lots of pictures ... that's what I look for when I check out other blogs.
2. Make comments when you visit a blog .... I love getting them so I am sure others do too.
3. Only make constructive comments ... it's amazing some of the comments I've read .... why be mean? There is a reason your Mother always said "if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all"
4. When you find a blog you like, check out the list of blogs they follow... they probably have the same aesthetic, and you'll like it too.
So THANKS for all your comments ... I'll be dropping in on your site soon ... so feel free to visit whenever you can.
In celebration of my 100th post, I'm having a give away!
I found these cute blue grey bowls with dots. I LOVE polke dots. If you would like to win them, leave me a comment (one per person) and I'll let you know who won on Thursday.
Hi. I live just outside Toronto, Ontario, and am interested in home design and DIY on a budget. I am in my 5th house since becoming single again ... my 10th home since leaving my childhood home - I obviously love the moving process. I also quilt, scrapbook, and love to cook, and spend time with my family.
