Let Your Home Be Your Heart

  • What I hope for my readers and for all keepers of the nest, is that they embrace their homes with their heart and all of the passion that it holds. I want them to know that they can decorate on a limited budget by seeing things in new ways; by rescuing the broken and transforming the ugly. I hope that they flaunt their favorite color and decorate their life with it. I hope that their homes feel like one giant hug that welcomes them each and every time they walk through their front door. More than anything I want everyone to have their own home-sweet-home dream come true! xo, Kim

I don't have a favorite... still trying to find the perfect one. Can't wait to read what everyone else writes! And that label is so great!!! And the pretty rose glass is too!

Marianne Robinson

I hope you feel better. I've already had it and it's not much fun. Do drink water, not my favourite either, but it helps and chicken soup too!
My favourite wine is a local wine, made in Harrow, Ontario, Cabernet goes well with anything, including strawberries and PBJ. This time of year, my husband and I cozy up to the fireplace and snack on cheese, crackers, smoked oyster and garlic shrimp when we sip our favourite vintage.
Feel Better Kim


Cheers my friend! That wine looks fabulous. I also look at the labels before deciding to purchase. I figure if the vintners have enough invested in the artwork of the label, the wine must be good. Right?

I got the cough~sniffles bug too. Drink your water and take care. Thanks for the morning cheer.

Ciao bella,

Oh, I like the labels of Red Truck and Big House and they are both yummy. There's also Evil which is good...I like red wine...


Oh but what a pretty glass you get to drink your water from.

My fave is a semi-sweet white or a blush. Red makes me stuffy.


Kim~ I hope you feel better really soon! I don't drink wine, but with a bottle like that, I could be convinced! You are such a talented photographer! I love your pictures! ~Dan~


It depends on the meal! We typically do red wines. But, on occasion, I prefer a nice white zin. But, also like you, coffee...yes, sweet tea, yes...water, not so much! I must try harder! Get well!



Feel better soon!

I have a friend who sent wine at Christmas. She found SnapDragon Wine -- chardonay and red ... perfect for the Snapdragon in her life! What a hoot! So that's my current favorite ... a wine named after me! :D :D :D


Rombauer Chardonnay is my very favorite, when I want to splurge. Otherwise Kendall Jackson has a nice chardonnay as well. I live in Modesto,Ca. home of Gallo winery, they some some nice cabs, and merlots. If you get a chance, please visit my blog, I have added a link to my nieces wineblog. Have a wonderful week, hope you feel better! Marcia

rita larson

Hey Kim,
I believe Strawberry Ripple goes with peanut butter sandwiches, doesn't it???

Kim Nichols

Kim, that is a cute label. My favorite is Santa Magherita pinot grigio. I do like some reds, too. Mostly pinot noirs. I hope you feel better very soon.


This label is soooo cute :) I bet it tasted amazing :) Have a nice day Kim :)


Ohh i forgot to mention..i wrote about the Hearts for Jack today on my blog.. you should get the package soon :) xoxo

Lavender Dreamer

Our favorites are red wines....Shiraz, Cabernet, Pinot Noir and we like Black Opal, Smoking Loon, Yellow Tail and Lindeman's. They are all reasonably priced and have flavors you can distinguish. I would love to try the one you found. Sounds great! What flavors did you taste?


Kendall Jackson Chardonnay is one of my favorites. Reisling & Gewürztraminer , are two others. What can I say, I'm a white wine girl!

Missouri wines we enjoy are Stone Hill, Hermannhof, Saint James, among others. Label was important, with the Saint James Country Wines. The Country White label, years ago, was American Gothic. When they retired that label, they did up posters and gave them away with each case of wine. That's the poster (matted and framed) that hangs beside the pantry, in our kitchen. I should do a post about Saint James Winery and use the poster print.

I'm curious about Chocolate Wine. You are the second person, I've heard mention it, in the past couple of weeks. I like the label on your wine.


Hum....right now I am into "Naughty Girl" wine, which is also a red wine! But I will be on the look out for Chocolate Box!!! And I sort of felt my future daughter in law was a naughty girl when she spilled her glass all over my carpet!!!!! Agh!!!!!!

Marfa (crafting marfa)

OK, first of all I want to say: HOW ADORABLE IS THAT YELLOW AND RED LAMP, I ASK YOU??? I love it! And the name of the wine has the word "chocolate" in it, so that's does it for me. I haven't tasted it, but it my favorite I'm not much of a wine drinker. Champagne gives me heartburn. But a soft, blush, White Zinfandel usually hits the spot. If the choice is between red and white, I take white because red is usually too sweet for me. I don't know much about brands,


Hi Kim! Great label!! I have picked 3 wines out because of their label and THANKFULLY I loved them all! If you are a red girl, definately try out The French Maid (pinot noir) AWESOME label too, lol. And Rex Goliath (I believe this is Cabernet or Merlot, I can't remember, lol) Can't miss it, BIG rooster on the front. And the third is a French wine that I'll have to take a picture of because I don't know what it says, LOL! :)
Happy Monday :)


Good Morning Kim,

I'm so sorry to hear that you are sick. Get plenty of rest my friend. I'm going to have to see if I can find that wine here, it sure sounds yummy and I love that label! I'm working to find the perfect Chianti, but the only one that I really like is the house wine from the Macaroni Grill. Fortunately here in CA you can buy it and take it home :) Another favorite of mine is Santa Margarita's Pinot Grigio


Jennifer @ Fiddle Dee Dee

Please feel better soon dear Kim! I love your choices in wine! =) The label is important to me as well (and I love this one!). Wine should be a reflection of who you are. I am a serious fan of a good riesling....something about a sweet wine (and a bowl of strawberries) that just makes me happy.

Becky G.

Hope you are feeling better soon!

We aren't big drinkers of anything alcoholic, however we found THIS on a trip to Ohio, and it is so delicious!!! It's a very sweet white wine, and it tastes like pure white grape juice, with a kick! I know Ohio isn't known for it's wines, but this is really good!

Becky G.

Sorry, somehow I messed up the link. Here's the link to the wine!

Kim @ BlueGrass and GreenTomatoes

Cheers, my dear! Hoping that you feel better soon!!!

My husband and I love an Argentinian Malbec. They are reasonably priced and wonderfully tasty... You can't go wrong. They are also the best gift to give when you are taking someone a bottle of wine. :)

Susan Freeman

Hi Kim, so sorry you are still feeling under the weather. You could try hot water with lemon, or lime if you prefer and add some honey. It seems to help me when I don't feel well. Another good remedy is unfiltered apple cider vinegar, honey and lemon in hot water. Now about wine ... I really enjoy a glass of red, but I have found a white that is very good and not expensive. It is "Il Poggio" an Italian white Pignoletto Frizzante. It is fruity and has just a bit of fizz. Wonderful with fish or fruit and cheese.

Susan and Bentley


My favorite wine is Mimosa (well, made with Laurent Breban Brut Blanc De Blancs of France). Not an expensive champagne. Enjoy! Blessings, Janet

Kimberly Padilla

I don't drink wine, but I do ♥ water. I like tea too, though I usually drink herbal teas (peppermint, chamomile, elderberry and licorice with wild cherry bark, etc.)I also love most juices, especially those straight from the juicer, and occasionally I like a pepsi or a cream soda for a treat. Hope you get to feeling better!


I have seen so many families ruined with the effects of alcohol and the power is has had over their parents, children or friends. I love to read your blogs first thing each day with a cup of coffee or tea but this one was not one I'll savor. Your site makes me so happy and peaceful with your work. Loved the diary and had beautiful thoughts of my excitement as a young, unsure little girl with a fresh page and pen!

You are very talented! Sheila

Kimberly C.

Hope you are on the mend soon.
La Crema, of course, is the chardonnay of choice.

Daisy Cottage




Fav wine of all time was an amazing red wine my father made- his best batch in all the years of his wine making.........back in the 1970s. To say it had magical properties sounds odd, but it was really amazing.

Fav wine maker US (Cali) hands down is BOUCHAINE's Pinot Noir. Fabulous people, fabulous wine.

Fav inexpensive wine maker elsewhere and always consistently good is Aussie's YELLOW TAIL Chardonnay. I drink it all the time and it goes with everything except a hearty beef dish or spicy red sauces..........but everything else gpes perfectly.

Kim, hope you feel better soon.

And go out and get those flavored vitamin waters, those will help. And just regular flavored waters- one cannot drink too many vitamin waters or it is dangerous. Or, of course- flavor your own by throwing a slice or two of lime, lemon or orange. Or a splash of raspberry juice or liquor, lol.

Fun post. I wrote too much, sorry.


To respond to Becky G:

Believe it or not Ohio really IS known for its wines. I grew up in a place called Catawba Island........named after the Catawba native Americans........and also there is a grape named Catawba.

The North Coast of Ohio- in the Great Lakes regions is full of limestone, and that makes the soil perfect for grape growing. If the NorthCoast were to have warmer temperatures we could rival much more - but growing season is short. BUT the wines can be very very good in Ohio.

Thanks for having one of yours a favorite! I should have thought of that. PLEASE let us know which wine exactly you were saying is your favorite! This Buckeye is just dying to know. You didn't mention it.

Kelly Bergsing

I am sorry you are not feeling well. I have managed to avoid it so far, as have my kids. With 5 kids, if something comes into the house it takes forever for it to go away. Drinking water would be so much more enjoyable if I had little glasses like you have!! I have been looking for some like that but have not been able to find any yet. I hope to get lucky at yard sale season this year. The thrift stores seem to be lacking around here right now... ;0)


Any that has alcohol in it! My MIL got me hooked on "King David Creme Carmel". A jewish wine that is extremely hard to find. Her father used to drink it. It is more like a desert wine. LOVE ASTI! Asti with a shot of chambourd and I am a very happy girl. Giggly happy! I will be looking for this one though.

Hope you are feeling better soon! Being sick is no fun unless there is a hunky man nurse close by!


If that wine bottle isn't perfect for your cottage, I don't know what is, I will have to look for it!!! Your vignettes make me so happy every day.

Brenda Kula

I don't happen to like the taste of alcohol at all, but I'd buy that wine just for the great label! Hope you feel better soon, Kim.

pogonip @ meadowsweet cottage

There was a New Zealand white at our Christmas party that was quite a treat, but so spendy that I'll sadly never be able to enjoy it again (so I deleted its name from my memory so as not to be tempted). Meanwhile Ferrari-Carano Fume Blanc suits my taste buds perfectly and suits our budget too!


Kim, You wouldn't believe it but I haven't drank wine for a long............long time. I went into the liquor store to get some brandy for my peaches last summer and I was just about overwhelmed with the beautiful labels and graphics and bottles. "A person could buy or drink themselves to death" I told myself as I tried to get on around and find the brandy. The graphics are absolutely amazing. This one of yours is so cute, I noticed a Cupcake one at your picnic - that sounds fun, too.

Donna Rae Barrow

Oh, please do feel better soon!

My favorite is Our Dog Blue from Chateau Morrisette, right here in Virginia. I LOVE supporting wines from my home state, and there are some really delicious ones to be found while exploring lovely wineries tucked right in our Virginia hills!


Kim.....I had to chuckle because I also choose wine, and many other things, if there's a great label or it or has great packaging. I've bought books for their covers also, and have been very lucky so far. That 'chocolate cherry' has me intrigued, so I must give it a try. I hope you feel better VERY soon!! Sue xo
p.s. I get 'Cheap Red Wine' (that's the real name) for gifts when I want to give something funny. But actually, it's pretty good. (also the 'Cheap White Wine'). ;)


I cannot drink wine with the medications that I must take. I used to drink a pink wine or wine coolers that my husband would make for me. Take care of yourself and as far as drinking water, I fought with drinking water for a long time. I now drink a bottle of water and a bottle of water with an individual packet of Crystal Light (Raspberry Ice) in it. If the Crystal Light is too strong just put in part of the packet. I drink the two for lunch and dinner. In the morning I drink 4 ouncs of Peach Juice and a bottle of water. I do not always drink the entire bottle of water, but I try. I also carry my Crystal Light packets out to eat, and ask for water and add that to my water as my beverage. Since you are sick, try some very warm tea and honey. If you end up with a very sore throat, I got good advice last week from an Advice Nurse. Drink very warm chicken broth or tea or gargle with very warm salt water. Right after that drink something very cold. I drank water from our refrigerator. It worked well. Be well.


For my sore throat, I drank very warm decaf tea with honey and cold water right after. It worked well for me. Just a suggestion for you if you need it. Take care.

Daisy Cottage

Thank you everyone. I'm home resting, drinking lots of water like a good girl and having a cup of hot soup as I type and I am ejoying reading what you are sharing. Thank you. Stay well!!



Hi Kim,
I hope you feel better soon! I don't have a favorite brand, but I really like Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, and Reisling. And I absolutely love your adorable lamp.

Get well soon!


Hope you are feeling better very soon! I am a champagne girl myself!

Laura @ Sahm I Am

My favorite wine? Nah, not my thing. Half a glass and I'm out of control, so I just skip it. (No tolerance for alcohol at all.) But I LOVE that bottle, and I might just have to go search for that for my husband to drink and me to have the bottle.

As far as water goes, I am also not a fan, but I fill my glass up almost, and then add just a splash of juice at the top. It gets just a bit of flavor, but without the sugar of the full strength juice, or resorting to artificially sweetened stuff. Makes the big glass of water go down just fine!

Feel better soon!


So sorry you're sick Kim! Feel better. I am so terrible at drinking water, period! I know we're supposed to drink water even when we're not sick but not me. I need to get better at it too. that wine is adorable! I'm a sucker for cute labels and I would have bought this just for the label..not caring how the wine tasted either. Lol!


Teacup Lane (Sandy)

Hi Kim,
Hope you are feeling better and, if not, please take care of yourself. I don't have a favorite wine. My hubby doesn't drink alcohol at all and I usually only have a drink at monthly BUNCO. My favorite alcoholic drink is Harvey's Bristol Cream (it's a Sherry) but I haven't had it in years. I only drink water in very hot, humid weather.

Teacup Lane (Sandy)


Hi, Kim! The last wine I bought because I liked the label was the French wine, "Red Bicyclette," French Ros'e. I don't want to talk bad about this wine, but let me just say that I enjoyed the label better than the taste! Granted, it wasn't an expensive bottle of wine. And perhaps I would have appreciated the Merlot or Pinot Noir a little better (?). Lately, we have been buying Bogle wines: Bogle Vineyards Phantom is my favorite. If one likes something sweet,I suggest Bogle Petite Sirah Port Clarksburg. It's a dessert wine with raspberry and berry flavors. I can't drink much at one time,'s almost too sweet! I'm going to have to try a some of the varieties people have listed here. We're always looking for a good label for when we entertain.

Hope you feel better soon!

Lisa Mc.

Hi Kim, feel better soon. I have enjoyed reading the comments and can't believe there is a Chocolate Red Wine!! YAY! Anyway, our current wine of choice for everyday is a wine from the Geneva area of Ohio. It is called River Rouge. LOVE IT!! And it's cheap. Otherwise, I too, always check out labels at wine stores. I love Italian wines. I love any rose from Provence. Just knowing where a wine is made sometimes psychologically makes it taste better!


Dear Kim
I am so sorry to hear you aren't feeling well...colds are so annoying and uncomfortable. Peace and quiet,plenty of rest and yes...water...lots of lemon too.
To brighten your day come by for a visit and enter in my Red Mitten GiveAway.
Take care dear Kim.


Reading this post and the comments makes me realize i've got to get out there and taste more wine, for me I like Riunite Lambrusco Red Wine I guess u could say i'm a cheep wino? lol

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality

Hey, sweet girl! HOpe you feel better soon. We love a muscadine wine which is made locally, but we hardly ever imbibe. That's our fave when we do. WHat a cute bottle that is, I can see why you love it. :)

Cindy S

I am so sorry to hear that you caught an ugly cold. I am finally feeling like I am over it. I caught it while I was at my daughter's home visiting. So, I had it for three weeks. Today, I am WeLl! Hallelujah!
Okay, down to the business at hand, I am not a wine drinker, my beverages of choice are coffee, hot tea, water and sweet tea! I have creamo with my coffee and I love my water with ice and I always have one on the go.
Get better soon, my friend.
Hugs, Cindy S.


Favorite wine? Is there really such a thing. I have so many favorites and just love trying new wines knowing I will find another. One favorite is The Magnificent Wine Co. "House Wine" Red 2006 (Columbia Valley, Washington State). Try it out.


Sparkling wine is my fave. Doesn't have to be Champagne, as there are a lot of good ones not made in the Champagne region, especially some California ones.

Debbie from Texas

My husband likes red wine and I like white.I like a Kendall Jackson Chardonney and 24/7 Reisling from Houston! I buy for the label, too, sometimes. Cute ones all catch my eye.Hope you get to feeling better soon. I hate drinking water, too. Drink hot tea and honey that helps. Get well!!

Debbie from Texas

Sorry, just looked at the bottle wrong-it is a German wine imported by a Houston company. Guess I have already had a glass today!:)

Donna Hurlbut

I don't have a favorite yet, but your wine label makes me want to give red wine another try! I hope you are feeling better very soon. When I get tired of just plain old water, I drink flavored seltzers. It makes water a little bit more interesting and not so blah.

Donna ;D

Alison Gibbs

Hi Kim hope you are soon feeling better.
Wine - I am open to trying any wine. Currently we are enjoying a local wine Mornington Estate Pinot Gris.

carol  hall

Terri Conrad

Be well

Merci -

Nancy Hutson Maisenbach

I am sorry you are not feeling well Kim. I found Tylenol Cold helped me when I had it.
I used to drink wine; to much wine and now I don't drink any. A tall glass of ice water with a slice a beautiful lemon slice is what I love. I recently found a berry hot tea that is really good.
I hope you are feeling well soon.
Nancy M.


Hope you're feeling better soon! When you can, please tell me where I should send my heart! Thanks! Nan

Barbara Anne

Plantation Blush by Williamsburg Winery. Sadly for those of you not in Virginia, it cannot be exported beyond state lines.

Be well!

Sweet Daisy Mae

Oh I gives me migraines, but I have purchased MANY a bottles for gifts. It is true, the presentation is EVERYTHING! I will look for it in my area....oh I wish I could just try a little...Chocolate Cherry....oh how sweet it sounds!!!! Hope you feel better soon....curl up with Maggie...she will take care of you and keep you comfortable and warm.

Jolie Anne

Hi Kim,

I hope you are feeling better! I know a few friends who are under the weather right now. I believe in Vicks on the chest to stop coughing at night, it works for me!
I love that label on the bottle. I like red wine so I'll have to give it a try!
I haven't had a glass in awhile due to being so busy lately. I drink a lot of water at my desk, I add a lemon wedge to it and it is much better!
I will have to send you the name of a wine that says it tastes like a cherry coke, I am still looking for that wine!
Feel better soon! :-)

Bella StyleBook

It is ashame that you are feeling poopie, but thanks for making the effort to post today. I also don't like to drink water too much. I squeeze fresh lemon in my ice cold water. It takes some getting used to, but I just love it and it is the only way I drink water now days.

Feel better soon!
Jan ~ BellaCasa

P.S. Tea is great for lots of reasons. I hope you will set up your tea pot and come sip tea with us starting the first Friday in March. We are having a Tea Party {non political} and we are looking for all the lovely and talented women bloggers to join us at BellaCasa.

Trish Rowley

Hi Kim, I hope that you are feeling better soon, I hate colds they are the worst thing for making you feel yukky!! I would have a glass of wine maybe twice a year but when I do it has to be a sweet one. I don't mind red or white but it must be sweet, take care and get better soon!!! and keep drinking that water it is very good for you.;) Trishxox


im not a wine drinker, but that bottle is too cute. i do love ice tea with a slice of orange. i pray you feel better soon.


I hate to hear that you're not feeling well. Get lots of rest.

If you have a cold, I recommend a pot full of citrus! Get any citrus - maybe a grapefruit, orange or two, lemon and/or lime. Squeeze the juice out of them. Then put the rinds or as many that will fit in the pot and add water. Simmer for at least 10 minutes. I put honey in a mug and pour in the citrusy water.

Hope you're on the mend soon! Take care


Not only is label Cute but the word Chocolate is involved! 'nugh said!

Feel better!
If the sun every returns,relax in a chair in the sunshine,it is a healing gift like nothing else!


My husband had a nsty cold last week - so far I have avoided it. Hope you feel better soon! As to my favorite wine - it's Captain Morgan's rum and coke with lime. ;-)


I do hope you feel better very soon. I know Maggie really misses her mommy. My taste in wine is not very sophisticated but I like most white wine. I have not found a red that I truly like and I just can't drink merlot at all. But if I must be honest and share my true favorite wine then it would be White Zinfandel. Yes, I know... the wine experts sneer at me all the time but for me there is no other flavor like it. I prefer Berniger, I know White Zen isn't considered very sophisticated but I can tell the difference between the brands and Beringer is superior.


Where can I get a pretty bottle of wine like this? Love it!


Hope you are feeling better!!! I, too, love wine labels---some are truly works of art!!---my favorite wine to drink in the Summer is Paul Jaboulet Parallele 45 Cotes du Rhone Rosé it is salmon hued (not pink) and it is dry, not sweet---VERY yummy on a hot summer day---favorite Chardonnay is Four Vines "Naked" unoaked Chardonnay from Santa Barbara---Favorite red is Quattro Mani Montepulciano d'Abruzzo...or a Chianti. Thanks so much for your wonderful blog--it always makes me smile! : )

Lori Michaud

ChocoVine is a delicious red as well, but my favorite is Snoqualmie Riesling!


2008 Honey Moon Viognier from Trader Joe's. It's a white wine and very yummy and what a great name! According to Wikipedia, the viognier is a rare white grape grown almost exclusively in the northern Rhône regions of France but also on Calfornia's central coast.


I have 3 faves.....first sorry to hear you are under the weather...feel better real soon !!!

1. Black Swan Merlot
2. Fat Bastard Merlot (the name kills me)
3. Trader Joe's Merlot 2.99 and it really is very good !!!!

My fave soup when not well is Lipton there is just something very soothing about it...

Kathy :)


I forgot one....Mommy's Time Out...the wine is okay....but again the name just kills me....I gave it to friend's for b'day gifts....

Kathy :)


I-must-find-this-wine!! Chocolate and Cherry, oh my, sounds yummy! I could have used this wine this morning when I went to the dentist for some fillings redone...yikey, I didn't have a great experience...the novocaine shot they used sent my heart racing & my hands shaking...apparently, it contains epinephrine! And, it didn't even numb me enough! Yep, I'll have the wine. :)

Tracie~My Petite Maison

Oh my goodness Kim, what a darling bottle you've got there. Labels are very important to me too! I have so many favorite wines but Sorelle Bronca Prosecco is wonderful... and Forth All Boys Cabernet (from Dry Creek here in Healdsburg), should I go on? How about trying sparkling water with a bit of lemon or lime? That is my real addiction and can't keep it stocked up in my fridge. Feel better soon!


it drives my husband nuts when i go and buy wine. i buy for the label. there are so many fun labels. such a great piece of art and you can drink what's inside. i'm really liking a ny wine by merritt winery's.


Biltmore House white wine. I treat myself twice a month. Hope you are feeling better. :)


hello, everyone

if i could for a moment and request that all of us as a whole say a prayer for those effected by all these devastating earthquakes that have risen and pray that there is mercy healings and recoveries for all those families and those that are helping at this time.

thank you, cottage feel

Susan Ramey Cleveland

I like white zin, but that chocolate cherry looks very interesting. Does it really taste like chocolate cherry? Hope you're feeling much better by now, Kim. Give Miss Maggie a pat for me.

  • "Kim, I love your blog. I so appreciate you sharing every day. I miss you when you're gone. Losing my dear sweet baby boy in Iraq has made me treasure life and those so dear to me. Reading your blog is such therapy for me. You have made me treasure the finer things in life that I use to overlook. Birds singing, flowers blooming, my home and all of the treasures within it.

Thank You Grace!

Since I was diagnosed with an immune disease a year ago I wanted only to read positive and very inspiring blogs and your blog was the first I found. I think maybe the good Lord meant for me to find your blog and since then it has been nothing but smiles all around. I have tried very hard to stay positive about this disease and very up beat. I know that there is no cure and I have accepted this, but reading things with a positive message and filled with so much love helps. This is where you come in and I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart and to let you know how very much you and Miss Maggie are loved." ~ Grace

After so much loneliness and isolation it is overwhelming to me that such a world even exists. In time I hope to be able to fill my garden of life with lovely, loving friends instead of the weeds of loneliness. Until that time lace tablecloths will come out of storage, music and lovely scents will fill the air of this home. And I shall visit the Daisy Cottage when I feel despair raise its dark, obscuring head, for I know from experience, that it is ever lurking behind that next bout of pain and weakness. Your kind and generous response has strengthened my resolve, you have helped me more than you will ever know, my new-found friend." ~ Lenna

Thank You Anne!

  • "Thank you for your wonderful blog. I have been "lurking" but had to share with you how much you have helped me embrace the fun of decorating. I came to your blog looking for pictures to inspire me as I redecorate my house with cottage style. Today I was so tangled up in doing it "right" that it was really depressing me. I visited your blog again for some fresh ideas and came away realizing that there is no "right." Just me being me and enjoying my home! I am laying here in bed with tears in my eyes - tears of happiness that it is okay to be me and let that shine through in my house and what I wear and what I make with my hands. You are God's gift to me today and I thank Him and you." ~ Anne
