Welcome!. I live in Oviedo, Florida with my handsome husband, two great kids and a pair of silly basset hounds. Oviedo is a little town where you can get a Barney’s coffee on one corner and have to wait for the chickens to cross on the next. I love to shop for vintage treasures to use in my home and artwork. Come along with me!
Suzanne of Pink Roses and other passions shared this post recently "Blogging up close..." with her readers and followers, and it has really inspired me as a new blogger. I love her attitude and appreciate her transparency. She needs her own button for this! I would proudly post it on my blog next to Jodie's "Looking to start a new blog" button from Everything Vintage. As a recent convert from blog stalker to blog writer, I can tell you it is super intimidating to get started after following all these lovely blogs with beautiful pictures and creative posts. The bar is set very high. I told myself for several months, you can't have a blog. I knew I had plenty to share and that I was passionate about my blog theme, but my house doesn't look like those beautiful photos. There is dog hair on the floor and backpacks by our front door. I assumed these women and their homes were as perfect as their pictures. I thought to have a blog you had to do projects all day and spend hours staging photos and drafting posts too. That is what a blog looks like "up close." But, I was missing the big picture. Thank you, Suzanne, for helping me affirm my decision to get started blogging. I do fit in after all. I can handle this delicate balancing act of family, work and creativity. I deserve my happy place and want to get to know new friends. Having a passion and the desire to share is enough to get started because none of us are perfect and that's okay...it is just one more thing we have in common my new friends.
