Thank you all!

Pin It Now!

I was in a bit of a panic because I couldn't think of anything to blog about today and then I thought about all the great friends I've met online here and how I should thank you all for coming by to visit. I had no idea when I first started blogging, almost 3 years ago, what I was in for. This blog has become such a huge part of my life now. I sometimes wonder what thoughts filled my head before this blog. I seem to always be thinking about the next project, how I can take better photographs, what will I put on my next post and I could go on and on. Sometimes when I arrive home from work at the end of the day, I realize that I was thinking about blogs and blogging for my whole 35 minute drive home! So I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all. You have no idea how much I appreciate all your comments and kind words. You motivate me!

Hi Cindy~

I am fairly new to your space and I absolutely love it! I come here every morning with my cup of coffee. I always leave with a smile on my face!

Your talent for decorating is like a breath of fresh air! I think you should send pictures to Chez Fifi for Romantic Country Magazine. You would be a hit!

And now . . .
I wish for you faith . . .
I send to you hope . . .
And I share with you love
From a joyful heart!

Hugs & Blessings~ Saralee

It is a lot of work - keeping up with your own blog...especially when life throws you some curves (good example of my life right now!) Anyway - just wanted to say thank you for hosting the blog. Yours and others give me a cyber space to escape to when my mind needs a rest.

Hi Cindy,

I just came in from the garage where I was spray painting a Christmas tree shaped shelf that I picked up at the thrift shop. While painting I was thinking how cool it is that I suddenly have all this motivation to paint things that I never would have even thought of before reading your blog. In fact a couple of months ago I didn't even know what a blog was!
You may think that fellow bloggers are motivation to you, but I want to tell you how much your beautiful photos, decorating abilities, painting instructions and your whole outlook on life inspire, motivate and in general give that gentle nudge that I need to try new things. I can't thank you enough. Every day I look forward to reading your blog.

Aw Cindy, you inspire us too!

I love your lil rock collection!
I collect heart shaped rocks too!

Can't wait to see the new armoire!

Hugz, Dolly

Janet said...

Three cheers for Cindy. Hip, hip know three times!

Thanks Cindy for all the inspiration an eye candy you provide.

Love your style,

As a new blogger myself it is nice to have visitors to your site and have people make comments of the things you love and love to do.
It is hard to think of something day after day. Not everyone thinks the way you do or likes the same things.
But, we each have our own talents.
You are an asset to blog land. I found your site first.

Thank you for doing what you do.

I am new to blogging but have gotten so that I can't wait to get on first thing in the morning and the last thing at night. I was at a shop today and heard two ladies talking about blogging and we exchanged blogs. It is such a great way of meeting so many awesome women. I too am thankful.

What a nice thing to say! Your blog is one of my favorits. When I fell kinda down I think oh good I still have Cindy's blog to read. I read it on my lunch hour about 10:00 or 10:30 everyday. Thank-you for making my day.

Rhondi said...

Hi Cindy I am the same way as you, always thinking about what to put on my blog next! It's amazing how much I've enjoyed writing a blog. Oh and by the way I am always looking for stones that look like hearts Rhondi xo!

I look so forward to coming home every day and checking your blog. You have such a great flair for decorating and making your apartment look so fabulous. I bet the other tenants are jealous of your Romantic Home. I'm a new blogger too and you give me sooo much inspiration to pursue my passion of decorating and creating my own little slice of heaven. Keep it up!

Wow, three years! I had no idea it had been that long.

I really do appreciate the time you put into blogging. It's free decorating ideas for me. Better than magazines.


bj said...

Dear Cindy, your blog was the very first one I ever read in my entire life and loved it then...still love it. You are a fabulous blogger and give us all so much inspiration and ideas. Your home is so sweet and you are sweet to share it with all of us. Thank YOU for having such a fantastic blog!
hugs, bj


Blogging is a Wonderful way to connect with people we otherwise would probably never meet!!!
I am soooooo looking forward to your armoire reveal!!!
Have a great day!!!

I always check your blog every time I sit at the computer! Your artistic flair and sweet spirit are truly motivational to me. I agree that blogging has changed my life, too. Who knew when I started what a drastic and very sad change my homelife was going to take. I still don't really like it, but figuring out how to blog something upbeat and positive is truly helpful to me. You are welcome, and thank you right back!

You just read my mind! But then, what better thoughts to have on a drive home with traffic all around? Photography is something that soothes me. Makes me "stop and smell the roses" in this frantic world of ours. So I know just what you mean.

Brenda@CoffeeTeaBooks said...

I do the same thing. I find myself thinking that I can hardly wait to share something with my blog friends.

Your blog is one of my very favorites. I rarely post but I always read. :)

Are those adorable heart shaped rocks? xoRachel

Beverly said...

I think the rose drops on the bottom would be lovely.

Chixmum said...

I, too, collect heart-shaped rocks, pebbles, etc. They're so delightful to find, especially when you're not looking for them. Thanks for the charming photos. Chixmum
