I've been reading your blog for a few months now and can't tell you how much you've inspired me. I have always liked the shabby chic look but didn't think it was really "me". Our current decor is Tuscan but the more I look at your site the more ideas and touches I find I can incorporate.

Mo said...

Great party! I wanted to participate, but I've only been blogging since I think.... mid May and don't have that many lovely pictures. Hope you have this again next year, I would love to participate.
