This is my first visit to your blog and I have to say...it is AMAZING! Oh my goodness...you are so talented and your home is gorgeous. I bought a dresser a while back with intentions of painting it and distressing it but really didn't know where to start. Seeing your work (and instructions) has totally inspired me to attempt my first project! I'll definately be a regular visitor here!!

Janet said...

Congratulations Cindy. You certainly deserve to be featured; you have inspired all of your readers and we are better painters, decorators etc because of you.

Keep up the good bloggin'.

Cindy,

Congratulations. And I'm one of those people who visit your blog daily, and you are the first blog I had ever visited. Now when checking your blog every day, I also check blogs in your favorites list. I also wanted to make a comment about your post on your roses. The are so beautiful. I also really noticed the apothecary type jar. It is so gorgeous as well. Wish I had one. Can't wait to see the dresser when it's done!

Cindy, just stopping by your site and thought I'd leave a message.

You have a beautiful home indeed...and it's fun to see someone else who loves blue as much as I do. As I said in a post that I did "I always thought pink was my favorite color but I sure have alot of blue in my home!"

I came across your blog looking for a website on a magazine. When I clicked on your blog... I could not believe it! Your blog is so romantic and comforting that I look forward to seeing it everyday! I even hunt down the stores looking for the magazine that you were featured. I did find one and will treasure. Love that you are helpful with the instructions of doing your projects, that I am going to try to do myself. Thank you Cindy for bringing joy to my life.

Hi Cindy!

Congrats on being featured!

Well, the time has come. The time has come for you to take your camera and do a complete shoot of your house. We have been saving bits and pieces as you post photos. But now we greedy readers would like to see it all.

I sure do hope you are keeping notes on how you convert regular items into the glorious items you share with us. I just KNOW a book is in the offing. So many decorating books assume we have a lot of money, or the designers come up with the most godawfulugly ideas. You have taught us how to work with a budget to create lovely items that have a place in real homes.

I hope you will continue for a very long time.

Well, Cindy I thought you had already been featured at Kim's site. So congrats! You have a lot of readers & do such a great job with your blog, I just assumed that, I guess. I've been featured too & it was a very huge honor for me as well.

Congrats again! Well deserved.

Hi Cindy, you are waaaayyyy too modest. There are many of us who have been fans of yours for awhile. Part of the reason is your awesome decorating taste, the other part is that you truly want to share what you know with us. I was so touched that you took the time to let me know about the bicycle sign, and even that you had left a post to locate the artist. Your home is a reflection of the amazing woman who lives there!!!! Ksarra

A Lovely Thing said...

You have another fan - glad to have stumble onto your lovely blog!

Love the mirrored stair idea. May I to "borrow" it in the future? :)

A Lovely Thing said...

Whoops - wanted to ask, do you really live in an apartment?

I ask because we are in a townhouse and I am curious about your beautiful roses. Do you grown them in containters?

Ashley Ladd said...
