One year ago I started this blog. I used to decorate years ago and I also did store windows. I have talked about how much I loved decorating over the years and how I missed it. I have been a wife and mother for the last 20 years and never worked in the art field. I never used my creativity beyond helping the kids with grade school projects. My husband was aware of this and told me to blog. Why blog? He knew there was something I was neglecting, my creativity. When I began to blog, I had only read Paris Parfait (which is a great blog) and a family member's blog. I had never viewed tablescapes other than Sandra Lee's. I hadn't spent any time doing things to the house other than helping with our big remodel. So, in the picture above I sewed up this Christmas sock and I welcomed you into my house and am I amazed at the year I have had. I have met some of the most amazing, talented, wonderfully kind people! I can't believe I get to create, talk, share ideas, and recipes with you. I had never read a "decor" blog before I hit publish with that Christmas sock and within a week or two I had found so many amazing blogs. I was in awe! If I had seen your homes and talent I would never have had the courage to put my sock out there. But, I am glad I did. Because I am now having fun creating everyday with you. Thank you so much for stopping by, visiting, and especially commenting. I don't know how to ever thank you enough. But for this; my 1-year blogoversary, I would like to give you a gift.
