Show and Tell Friday - 1 year anniversary!

Pin It Now!

I can't believe it's already been a year since I took over Show and Tell Fridays...time flies! It's been a great year and it's been fun seeing the list of participants growing steadily! Last week we had a record of 213 bloggers joining in! Whoohoo! Thank you all so much! If you have a blog, this is a great way to get more visitors to your site! 

It has been so hot here in California this week!  I just don't feel like doing anything except being a couch potato!  Luckily it's starting to cool down today! 
Because I was so lazy this week, I'm sharing some old photos of my garden conservatory made by Linda ~Linda's Blue Gate. You can find her link over on my right sidebar!  When you walk through my front door you can see it out on my back patio! It's oh-so-charming!
I just bought some purple mums today on my lunch hour to put in there for Autumn to replace the hydrangea in the photo above which died long ago when we had a heat wave and I forgot to water it! 

My Friend Kim told me about this great site today and I thought I would share it with all of you! There are some great deals but it's only for certain areas of the country....

Goldstar: "Check out this site I found called Goldstar. They have half-price tickets and member reviews of concerts, sports, theater and more.
I'm already a member!"

If you are joining in on Show and Tell Friday, please remember that your Show and Tell needs to be something from your home or garden. Please read the Show and Tell Guidelines for step-by-step instructions on how to participate. If you would like to join in, please enter your name and leave your exact Show and Tell blog post link, not just your blog link and as a common courtesy link back to my blog. If your link has been removed, please re-read over the guidelines before re-posting, or e-mail me with any questions.
Thank you!

Happy Anniversary Cindy. I love your conservatory, I have one that
a friend of mine made about 10 or 15 yr. ago. Last year I updated it
with the mosaic and put cherries
on it. Your courtyard is soooo cute. Thank you for bringing us
so many blogs to choose from. Hope you and Lauren have a good weekend.":O)

Dear Cindy:

My Romantic Home will always be very special to me because it was the very first blog I ever found in blogland. I didn't even know such a magical place existed!

When I saw your blog for the first time, it was like finding a rare treasure. Your presentation of your home seemed so enchanting to me.

Well, it's been a year since then. So much has happened, including starting my own blog! But yours remains a true fave of mine. Your posts always hold surprises and great treats for the eyes.

Please accept my dearest and warmest congratulations on this huge accomplishment. You are AMAZING. Warmly, Susan

I'm honored to link up my latest project here on your wonderful blog and show and tell.

There are so many wonderful blogs now, but I have to tell you that yours is always a "must see" for me.

Keep the inspiration and creativity coming.

A wee bit late but I made it. Thanks for hosting. Thanks for your touching comment on my post about my nephew too.


Brenda Pruitt said...

You have done wonders with this weekly meme, Cindy. I love to come over here and click on the links. Linda is so very talented. One of these days I must have one of those conservatories for my garden. After all, I'm not too awful far from her I don't think. It's just beautiful there in your little yard. I'm sure you get tons of compliments on that space you've so lovingly created.

Kathleen Ellis said...

Happy Anniversary! What a beautiful garden conservatory, relaxing and inspiring!
Have a beautiful week~
